Set on the outskirts of the peaceful village of Cartmel, L’Enclume is a prime example of beautiful Lake District architecture, with beautiful gardens encasing the stone-walled hotel. Amidst a six acre farm where ingredients are grown for the hotel’s impressive restaurant, L’Enclume boasts 15 individually designed luxury rooms and suites and is the perfect place to relax in the heart of the stunning Lake District. With chef Simon Rogan at the helm the restaurant is hailed to be the best in the UK by the 2014 British food guide and has countless rave reviews. The cuisine at L’Enclume is an incredible experience itself, with a strong emphasis on modern gastronomy.


L’Enclume sits on the edge of the picturesque medieval town of Cartmel in Cumbria, with winding streams, cobbled paths and exposed stone buildings everywhere you look.

Why we like it

Rocketing to grab the top spot on the good food guide’s annual top 50 replacing Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck, the restaurant at L’Enclume is truly something special.
