Cartmel a perfect setting:

Cartmel is a truly picturesque village with a huddle of properties dating from the 17-19th Century.

The word Cartmel comes from Old Norse meaning a sandbank by rocky ground – the rocky ground being Hampsfell.

The village is famous for its beautiful priory church, which was founded by William Marshall, earl of Pembroke, between 1190 and 1196.

The church is dedicated to St Mary and St Michael.

An unusual feature of the priory is the Bell Tower which is in two section, the upper section lying at an angle of 45 degrees to the lower section.

The village square is complete with a pump and fish slab.
