Cartmel is a 10min drive away from Windermere's shores. Note that we're right in the centre, not stuck out in one of the neighbouring hamlets. Forget your car: walk the Fells, reach the coast or potter through the cobbled streets straight from the flat. Holker Hall, with its stunning grounds, is walkable too. Other local attractions include Grizedale forest, the homes of Beatrix Potter, Wordsworth, and Ruskin. It's a great base to explore all the Lakes has to offer. Spectacular scenery is yours for the walking, or just enjoy looking at it from our windows. You can't fail to enjoy staying in one of England's prettiest villages. The genteel seaside town of Grange is 3miles away. And the three race meetings in Cartmel each year offer the opportunity to see the village at its daftest - book early as the entire place gets busy during these great festivals. But rest assured, that while in the hub of the village, you'll get peace and quiet, with your own private courtyard to sit in too.
