English: Cartmel is a village in Cumbria, England several miles west of Grange-over-Sands, and close to the River Eea. It is traditionally in Lancashire but boundary changes brought it into the newly created county of Cumbria in 1974. The village is the location of the 12th century Cartmel Priory. It has more recently become known as the "home of sticky toffee pudding", which can be purchased in various sizes from the Cartmel Village Shop. Its racecourse hosts popular meetings two or three times a year, traditionally in Whit Week. The ancient parish was traditionally known as the Land of Cartmel - formerly regarded as an area quite separate from the Furness peninsula. Holker Hall, associated with the Cavendish family and the Dukes of Devonshire, is located within the original boundaries of the parish.
