Brand New for May 2021

Get away from it all and discover the freedom of wild glamping at Muncaster Castle. Tucked away in a quiet wooded corner of the 77-acre Muncaster Estate, our small, back-to-nature glamping site offers unlimited access to everything Muncaster and the local area has to offer. Our glamping experience allows you to enjoy the simpler things in life as you unwind and relax around your campfire and indulge in the natural beauty of your surroundings, whilst discovering the wildlife and nature that shares your woodland setting.

Our 5 metre canvas bell tents are set up ready for your arrival and can accommodate up to 4 guests. Each bell tent is equipped with wooden framed beds with a mattress, cosy wood burning stove, solar powered lighting, cooking equipment, and tableware. Outside you have your own fire pit, campfire kettle, and a picnic table. Dutch ovens and campfire frying pans are available for a small hire charge.  A bag of firewood is provided for your arrival and additional wood can be purchased on-site.  Each bell tent has access to a composting loo, rustic shower, basic washing-up facilities and a freezer in which to refresh your freezer blocks.
