The Lymehurst Hotel is a popular place to stay for visitors to Cartmel Races. The tiny village of Cartmel bursts at the seams on race weekends as visitors spill into local towns and racing excitement fills the air.

Just eight times a year, over 4 months, you can experience national hunt (jump) racing in its most original form, with horses competing on a four-furlong run-in; the longest in Britain. Cartmel Races allegedly attracts the highest crowds of any race meeting in the UK, with visitors from across the country joining locals to enjoy this historic sport.

The Racecourse circles a multitude of stalls and rides, which combine for a fun-filled family day out.
