St. Anthony's Church was built as a chapel of ease for Cartmel Priory in about 1504, and has changed little since. It contains some 17th-century box pews and a rare three-decker pulpit of 1698 as well as stained glass which may have come from Cartmel Priory.
A mile to the north-east, Cowmire Hall incorporates a 16th-century pele tower, whilst the main block of the house dates from the 17th century. Also of note is Chapel House, Ravensbarrow Lodge, and Danes Court Cottage.
Cartmel Fell is the subject of a chapter of Wainwright's book The Outlying Fells of Lakeland. Wainwright describes a walk from the church to the summit Raven's Barrow at 500 feet (150 m), which he calls "a lovely belvedere for viewing a lovely valley". He says that the cairn is locally known as Ravensbarrow or Rainsbarrow Old Man. To the northwest is Heights Tarn, a small lake on private land.
