The main parking for the village and Cartmel Square is on the Racecourse and is approx. 150 yards from us. The carpark has a number plate recognition monitor and is a private car park managed by Parkonomy.  The best way to book is via their website racecourse - this gives better value for money without having to keep feeding the meter in the carpark as it resets at midnight.  If you are lucky enough, there is free roadside parking out along past Cartmel Village shop - the last parking bays alongside the racecourse or out by the Pig & Whistle pub.
