Even more reasons to visit beautiful Meathop Fell


From garden shows, to beer festivals, from the exhilarating Cartmel races, to spending lazy days in Grange over Sands. Experience the delights of the splendid town, its views, and events such as the Sunday afternoon Bandstand Concerts.

Take a stroll across to the Promenade to see the artists at work beside the breathtaking estuary, with sweeping views across Morecambe bay.
