“Ideal for pet owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2009

Just reading reviews this is my 6th stay at Muncaster and ok it is not in the Lakes but does it pretend to be? Fantstic grounds to walk in especially when all the daytrippers have left. How could anyone get bored of the views and say all the same. As not suitable for pet owners I take my 3 dogs everytime and they love it. Highly recommended

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2008

We hadn't booked a room here as we thought it would be out of our budget. We were very tired after exploring the castle and grounds so enquired about a room. The rates were average price so we treated ourselves. The room was lovely overlooking the owlery. In the evening we wandered around the castle gardens taking in the evening sights and smells. We felt like we owned the place. It was incredibly quiet and going through the old church and graveyard at dusk was spooky to say the least. The room was very clean, the bathroom good, the bed the most comfortable I've slept in. I wanted to take the bed home with me.
Builders and workers arrived by about 7am in the morning so there was no sleeping in. Breakfast was good. A must stay place.

  • Liked — The bed and the owlery outside my window
  • Disliked — No evening meal facility and didn't want to drive into town.

Excellent accommodation. Clean, quiet, friendly staff. Discount entry to castle. Pleasant gardens. Play areas for kids. Free access to owls.

Cooked breakfast was a bit salty although kitchen with dishwasher, washer, dryer, fridge, freezer, microwave and range cooker is available. Also available is TV lounge with games.

We stayed in the Castle's B&B in the converted Coach House for three nights in mid October. Left the car on the first night and didn't use it again until we left.
Very comfortable and very quiet. Not even the owls disturbed the night. Huge bed, the room v clean and tidy.
There is a big kitchen and separate comfortable lounge if you want to self cater.
Breakfast is local produce with black pudding that is addictive. Local staff are friendly and the castle and grounds are not your average experience. The walk into Ravenglass is around 20 minutes - through the woods which makes an interesting return journey after an evening out.
The village although small has three pubs, each good in their own right, worth exploring. Stopping in the castle gets discount on La'al Ratty, we didn't find this out until afterwards so worth asking.

In May of 2007, I stayed 3 days at Muncaster Castle in the Coachman's Quarters and found the room to be very clean and very comfortable. In fact my room was about 3 times larger than my room at the Holiday Inn Express in London. The staff was excellent and always attending to the guests needs. The Castle is secluded and you will find three small giftshops on the property along with Creeping Kate's Kitchen which serves extraordinary food, especially the fish and chips, (although they call it something else). This is a family home and the owners welcome their guests to go just about anywhere on the property. The Castle itself is filled with History and has lot's of old world charm. It is probably the most beautiful and serene place I have visited in a very long time. The grounds are stunning and it wasn't uncommon to see the family walking about taking care of their daily business. This is a wonderful place to get away for a weekend to relax and enjoy the scenery and history. If you are looking for luxury, you won't find it here. However, if you are looking for peace, tranquility and history, this is where you will find it. I highly recommend staying at the Castle and enjoying all there is to see. I plan to go back in a year or two myself. I have included just a few photos of this magnificant place just outside Ravenglass. Enjoy!

  • Liked — The fact that it was very clean and the staff was very helpful
  • Disliked — Nothing, everything was perfect.

If you're looking for a weekend away then Muncaster Castle is not for you.

We wanted a weekend away in Cumbria, hoping to spend the Saturday looking around Muncaster and going to beach and then seeing the lakes on the Sunday.

As you may or may not be aware Muncaster Castle offers B&B accommodation in the Coach House which was more than adequate. We had the whole B&B to ourselve which was good as we had sole use of the TV lounge which had large comfuy sofas.

Our room looked over the Owl Sanctuary which wasn't ideal as there was a lot of hooting during the night.

There are only a few rooms open to the public in Muncaster Castle as a family still lives there and therefore we were in and out in 30 mins. The gardens are nice but it all starts to look that same after a while.

We were then left with nothing to do, it is too far to travel to the lakes so we decided to drive to the beach we'd seen on the map. Don't bother! You could hardly call it a beach and there are no shops/bars/restaurants there either apart from a dodgy newsagents. We were gone after about 10 mins.

This also left us another problem for the evening... were would we got and have a nice evening meal?? The answer is you can't! There are only local pubs and you even look overdressed in a top and jeans!

The first one we went to was too overcrowded, there was hardly any choice on the menu and we had to wait. We then ventured to another which was closed! We then went to another who were not serving food as they had a wedding party booked there. The next one we ended up settling at but again the menu was very sparse and not only that but half the things on there they had ran out of. The only things available were lasagne and chicken curry! And then another couple come in after us for food and they were turned away!

I definitely would not recommend this for a weekend away or even a night, and if you do, take your own food!

The Sunday was much more like it though, the drive to the lakes was gorgeous and the walk around the lakes and ended up saving the weekend!
