Cartmel – the UK’s number 1 foodie destination

It’s hard to believe that the village I grew up in is now one of the country’s top foodie destinations. Don’t get me wrong, the local produce has always been outstanding – from the free range meat we used to eat on the farm where I spent my childhood to the amazing seafood from Morecambe Bay (the delicious brown shrimps harvested in nearby Flookburgh are a particular favourite). But to have a Cartmel restaurant voted the best in the UK is amazing.

L’Enclume with its two Michelin stars is a good five hour drive from London, book to stay with us and you’ll have the most luxurious, comfortable place to relax after your journey and all that fine dining. Keep watching out for special offers from us.
