How to find us
Muncaster is located in the heart of the Western Lake District and, uniquely, is in the only coastal village of the Lake District National Park, Ravenglass.
If you're visiting Muncaster for the day, put in the postcode CA18 1RD into your Sat Nav and that will guide you directly to our main Car Park.
For visitors with disability/mobility concerns, we have a car park in the heart of the estate which can be accessed via Church Lane. This is approximately 1/3 mile around the corner from the main car park (heading south) and is the same entrance for coaches.
We have additional parking for our major festivals and parking is completely free, all day! You can relax and enjoy your visit and indulge in our home-made cakes or lunch in our on site cafe.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
