Walk down the front along Morecambe Bay, followed by nipping into Higginsons Butchers for their award winning Pie or Sausages.

Pampering

When you started your break with some of the fantastic food on offer in the local area, treat yourself to some pampering at Harmony Health and Beauty in the village. Or try some more strenuous activities with outdoor pursuits at Bigland Hall Estate. Within the village, the National Trust sometimes opens the historic gatehouse building for visitors to see or amble around the streets taking in the beautiful buildings.

If you are lucky enough to be there during one or more of the race days then make sure you visit Cartmel Race course for a day of spirit, your locally produced picnic and steeplechase. Top of this local day of tradition with a visit to Cartmel’s ancient Priory.
