What a wonderful visit to Cartmel. The Abbey is superb, and a walk aroung the village is lovely. Don't forget to visit some of the great little shops and stores in the village. Also a must is the sticky toffee pudding in the centre village store in the cafe upstairs. Exquiste. Regards Gary Saunders

We popped here quite by accident and were so pleased we did. This is architecturally and historically an amazing place. The windows, stonework and woodcarvings are stunning and there is such a sense of warmth and presence. Definitely worth a detour between the cheese and sticky toffee pudding shops

Spent an enjoyable 30 mins on a quick tour of this very old priory. Several interesting things to see, from the Norman arches to re-assemable stained glass which has been destroyed during the Reformation - there are VERY few places with pre-Reformation glass on display in situ, so make sure you see this. Good gift shop, good exhibits throughout.

We visited on a very cold late December day and enjoyed looking around the beautiful (and warm) Priory. The preservation that has been done is excellent. If you are in the area it is not to be missed!
