The age of elegance is not past;it still lives on at this lovely old manor house where two generations of the Varley Family have created a special atmosphere of warmth and comfort. Once the distinguished residence of the decendants of William Marshall, Earl of Pembroke, founder of the historic 12th Century Cartmel Priory, Aynsome still echoes with the character and traditions of that bygone era. Located in the still untouched Vale of Cartmel and with views southwards to the Norman Priory, meadowlands and woods, Aynsome Manor represents an idea centre from which to explore the richness of the English Lakes or the hidden delights of the nearby coastline with it's fascinating estuaries and inlets. Chris, Andrea and their dedicated team look forward to welcoming you to both Aynsome Manor Hotel and Cartmel. A vibrant village in every season with an ancient medieval heart.
