“Return visit did not disappoint”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

More than a decade between visits - this Priory is testament to a dedicated band of volunteers who have preserved this wonderful space. A must see when in the area. I'll be back

“A magnificent church in the heart of a beautiful village!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We hired a cottage in the village for the Bank holiday weekend & the bells tolling from this beautiful church was simply magical! Beautiful building in the most picturesque of Lakeland villages!

“Cartmel”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

It was a delightful place to visit, very small, scenic, friendly and lots of good places to eat, including a Michelin Star restaurant. Sticky toffee pud and locally made ice cream was delicious in The Kings Arms!
The priory was impressive and the micro brewery made fantastic beers which you could taste before purchasing.

“Beautiful little village”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

We visited Cartmel during February so there were few people around but I could imagine it being very popular during the summer. I was pleasantly surprised to find a micro brewery in the village along with some interesting shops. I couldn't sample the beers as I was driving and I would make different arrangements should I visit again.

“Beautiful little village.”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

There is a massive car park at the racecourse not too badly priced either with a walk in the woods for the dog walkers. The Kings Arms was dog friendly and very very welcoming. Good food at reasonable prices.
