Set in the heart of 17,000 acres of rural Cumbria, the Holker Estate encompasses a major proportion of the Cartmel Peninsula.  The Estate has a long tradition of farming through the craftsmanship of tenant farmers who produce cheese, honey, prime Shorthorn Beef, seasonal Venison and game and the famous Holker Saltmarsh Lamb.

The Estate operates numerous businesses, including the opening of the Cavendish family home to the public.  These include Cartmel Racecourse, Burlington Stone, Burlington Aggregates, two Luxury Holiday Parks in South Lakeland (Longlands and Old Park Wood), Corrie & Co Estate Agents, Devonshire Buildings (apartments) and the Holbeck Homes development in Barrow-in-Furness.
