Situated just outside the Lake District National Park, the South Lakeland village of Cartmel has grown up around its 12th century Priory Church. Long famous for its horseracing, the village is increasingly gaining a reputation as a foodie haven. In such a small village, the choice ranges from the Michelin starred L’Enclume restaurant to pubs serving delicious local produce, deli, cheese shop, a micro-brewery and not forgetting the home of the famous sticky toffee pudding!

Cartmel Village is around 3 miles north-west of Grange-Over-Sands, nestled close to the River Eea, and just around 1 mile from the A590,  with links to Ulverston, Kendal, and the southern tip of Windermere.

Why people choose to live in Cartmel

Property in Cartmel and the surrounding area ranges from cosy traditional cottages, larger village houses and a wide range of country properties and farmhouses scattered around the nearby fells.   The village is well known as a popular base for short-breaks and holiday homes with some of the highest prices in the immediate local area.  However properties can also achieve significant rental yields.   If you don’t need to live in Cartmel itself, better value and fewer visitors can often be found in smaller villages nearby or perhaps overlooking Morecambe Bay in Grange-Over-Sands

For families, the village offers well regarded primary and secondary schools; with Cartmel C of E Primary and Cartmel Priory School for children aged between 11-16 years.   For private schooling, Windermere School runs a bus service via Newby Bridge about 8  miles away

As a local property owner herself, Lisa is particularly well placed to advise on holiday rental and investment opportunities in the Cartmel area. Lisa excels in tailoring support to meet the needs of her clients; recognising that not everyone has a multi-million budget or the time to travel to view properties that looked great on screen but turn out to be disappointing in reality. Recently she has dealt with a diverse range of home buying challenges for returning ex-pats, downsizers, investors and those looking for holiday homes.

Lisa has also combined her interest in property and a passion for Greek Islands with the development of a holiday villa for rental on the island of Paxos.
