Muncaster Self Catering Holiday Cottages
Explore our varied selection of properties available for self-catering booking. From a cosy little cottage to an imposing mansion house, Muncaster Cottages can cater for parties of all sizes, all in the beautiful Western Lake District either on the Muncaster Estate or in the pretty seaside village of Ravenglass.
But why bother to cook? Eating out options abound in the area with three inns in Ravenglass alone or – particularly if there are lots of you – why not ask our team of chefs to provide a fully-catered meal in your own dining room?
Our larger properties with their large private gardens are perfect for trying your hand at the ancient pursuit of archery. For groups of four or more (min age 8 please note) your session can include tuition and on-going coaching, practice rounds, games and competitions – your own archery tournament? All on a date to suit you. Contact our partners Independent Adventure for more information.
Newtown House, sleeping ten people in four bedrooms, boasts impressively high ceilings and many original Georgian features.
Just a mile and a half away, past a ruined Roman bath house, is the village of Ravenglass, a Roman port and favoured destination of smugglers.
An isolated beach cove at the end of the drive is the perfect place for a picnic and there are miles of country walks to be enjoyed direct from the door.
Newtown can also be booked with adjoining property Knott View, together sleeping up to 22.
The properties enjoy an extensive walled garden, perfect for barbecues, games and relaxing. Or how about trying your hand at the ancient pursuit of archery? For groups of four or more (min age 8 please note) your session can include tuition and on-going coaching, practice rounds, games and competitions – your own archery tournament? All on a date to suit you. Contact our partners Independent Adventure for more information.
Knott View is a great house for large families and groups, anniversaries, celebrations or just to get away from it all, sleeping up to twelve people in six bedrooms or book together with adjoining Newtown House for up to 22 beds.
Situated away from it all on the Muncaster Estate, the coastal village of Ravenglass is less than a mile from Knott View. Muncaster Castle itself is about a mile from Newtown and Knott View in the other direction (if walking) or can be reached by driving back to Ravenglass then taking the main road south. The location usually benefits from better weather than the central lakes and is within easy reach of the Western Lakeland fells and mountains. The estuary at Ravenglass is less than a mile away and the whole area is great for miles of walks direct from the door or picnics in the surrounding countryside.
Herbert House, in the heart of the historic fishing village of Ravenglass and a mile from Muncaster Castle, is a period detached house sleeping up to ten in five bedrooms with the front beds enjoying views across the estuary to the Irish Sea. The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway (heritage narrow-gauge steam) is close by, as are the ruins of the Roman Bath House, and the Pennington Hotel and the Inn At Ravenglass are in the same street for real ales, good food and a warm welcome.
Coming soon! 2 Wells Cottages & Shepherd’s Cottage
Available to rent soon, two new and smaller cottages join the fleet.
One of a row of characterful Victorian cottages on the fringes of Ravenglass village, 2 Wells Cottages is a two-bedroomed cosy property very handy for the village centre with its seafront, a few minutes’ walk to the main line railway station and the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway (heritage narrowgauge steam) station, museum, cafe and shop are also close by. The ruins of the Roman Bath House are a short walk away and the Pennington Hotel and the Inn At Ravenglass are just along the road for real ales, good food and a warm welcome.
Shepherd’s Cottage is a quaint one-bedroomed property in the tiny estate hamlet of Chapels on the slopes of Muncaster Fell, about half a mile from Muncaster Castle on a private estate road. Perfect for walkers and mountain bikers, it backs onto the Eskdale Trail leading from Ravenglass up the valley to Boot and beyond. As well as the attractions at the Castle, the pretty village of Ravenglass is ca 1.5 miles away with its inns, mainline and Ravenglass & Eskdale railways and seafront.
