On the doorstep is of course foodie heaven. Cartmel is the gastronomic centre of Cumbria with four pubs serving high quality food, cafes and delis and not to be forgotten, restaurants including Simon Rogan’s 2 Michelin star L’Enclume and his bistro Rogan’s. The cheese shop in Unsworth’s Yard is well worth a visit too and choosing to stay self catering ensures there is a fridge ready to become brimming full of some of the wonderful artisan cheeses on sale there.

But it’s not just all about the food in Cartmel. Thousands of people flock to Cartmel for horse racing at Cartmel Racecourse. With meets during the racing season, the horse racing community descend on this village. Year after year the attendance rises and this in turn attracts high profile jockeys and horses. Even those not into horse racing can’t help but enjoy the event in a location such as this soaking up the buzz.

Walking is right from the doorstep too like the Cartmel Peninsula with its rolling hills and views towards the Lake District fells. It is the ideal place for walking with many footpaths and bridleways or a quick hop on the bus, train or in the car and the Lake District and especially Lake Windermere is there to experience.
