Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Cartmel

 
The unspoiled, historical gem that is the village of Cartmel. Described by Radio 2’s Chris Evans as a ‘thimble full of diamonds’, is most famous for its 12th Century Priory Church. Around it the spectacular, picturesque village has grown. Making it the perfect place to spend a self-catering holiday in the Lake District.
 
The priory receives some 60,000 visitors and worshipers annually, making Cartmel a tourism hotspotSteeped in history, with its 16th to 18th century inns, shops and homes, Cartmel offers a peek into a bygone era for holidaymakers and pilgrims alike to enjoy. Choose from one of our hand-picked portfolio of holiday cottages in Cartmel.
 
Cartmel Races has been a local specialty since 1856. Yet; it is believed that racing has been a part of its history since the 15th Century. Monks would entertain themselves, by racing on mules. The famous Racecourse, home to the annual Cartmel Show, is also used for various equestrian and dog agility activities throughout the year. The Village is perhaps most famous for being the home of the famous, ‘Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding’. Which is so good each pack should come with a helpline number! This unique dessert is shipped all over the country. It can be found is the very best stores, such as Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. It’s also said that Madonna ranks highly as a fan of the famous pudding!
