We’d never heard of Cartmel. All we can say is, if you’re ‘doing’ the Lake District, don’t miss it! The Priory itself makes the visit worthwhile. But then there are the charming little shops. And there’s even a racecourse! Go visit!
This is truly breathtaking, how amazing that we get to see 800 years of worshiping. Lovely grounds and the little shop is very nice, you can light a candle for your loved ones, and also leave a prayer card for the parishioners to pray for...More
A truly impressive scale; because it was a priory, of course. How amazing it must have seemed 500/600 years ago. Large, calm, clearly articulated interior, but with all sorts of quirks, On the cusp of Norman / Early English; tantalising bits of 15C glass; brackets...More
We always find something different to look at the Priory. It is a beautiful place to visit. The Priory has a beautiful altar. Volunteers are very knowledgeable & alwYs willing to pass this onto visitors

Huge priory church for such a small village. Dates back 1000 odd years, with an interesting mix of architectures. Free entry but worth a donation - I'm sure the villagers alone can't keep it maintained.
The priory had a service when we arrived so we walked round the village. On return, the clergy were very welcoming and we enjoyed an interesting and informative visit amidst the parishioners who were enjoying tea after the service. Wee worth a visit.
