Make the journey to Cartmel on Friday 16th December. The perfect start to any festive weekend spa packages in the Lake District
While it may be a chance to try some traditional Cumbrian food, there’s likely to be some less common treats available too. Although this particular food market takes place every month, this Friday is your last chance to stock up for Christmas. As such local suppliers will have all the meat, cheese and local beer you need to keep you going until the New Year.
