One of Cumbria's most beautiful villages

Wall Nook Cottages are situated just a mile and a half away from a famous medieval Priory, the oldest & prettiest racecourse in England and the wonderful ‘foodie’ village of Cartmel…

Cartmel has been described as, ‘a thimble full of Diamonds’, by DJ Chris Evans and is regarded to be one of the best areas to live in the country. A race track, riding stable, a Michelin Starred restaurant, the Famous Sticky Toffee Pudding shop and medieval priory are just a few minutes walk away from the village centre.


There are plenty of excellent pubs to eat in and a brewery, artisan bakery, cheese maker and many beautiful little gift shops to visit. The medieval town is nestled in the Cartmel Peninsula under the watchful eye of the Priory, which dates back to 667AD.  The River Eea carries water off the fells and meanders through the centre of the village.

The Edwardian seaside town of Grange Over Sands is close by. While the surrounding villages of Allithwaite, Cark in Cartmel, Lindale, Haverthwaite and Flookburgh all have their own little secrets to reveal.


There are plenty of places to visit that are a short drive from Cartmel including; Lake Windermere, Holker Hall, Humphrey Head, Lakeland Motor Museum, Aquarium of The Lakes, Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway. If you feel daring you could enroll in a parachuting course organised by Skydive North West at Cark Airfield.

Places to visit, things to do...
