Fun & Interesting Facts
While most famous for its racecourse, Cartmel has another claim to fame in the form of a world-famous sticky toffee pudding shop. Handmade for more than 20 years by Cartmel Village Shop, this award winning sweet treat is so good it can now be found in big name department stores such as Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason.
Experience breath-taking views of the stunning Lake District when you go up, up and away on a glorious hot air balloon ride with Virgin.
