With the National Park, narrow gauge railway and Muncaster Castle all within easy reach, Muncaster View makes an ideal base for family, friends and walkers alike.


A lovely cosy cottage. The owner was very welcoming and it was great that the log burning stove had plenty of wood and coal for our stay. A great place to have as a base to visit the Western Lakes.

I spent Christmas week 2014 at Muncaster View with my partner and his parents (and their dog). It's an absolutely lovely cottage, quite modern inside but designed to be cosy and traditional. It was great having an en suite for each bedroom so we had completely separate bathrooms to use and no communal one. The log burner and electric fire in the lounge area added charm and worked a treat at keeping us toasty, as did the electric heaters in the bedrooms. We managed to have a great Christmas dinner despite a few hiccups with the oven (there's no seal around it and it's not screwed into the unit) and some mis-timings with the electric hob - but what can you expect for a holiday rental, they're not really designed for grand meals! Mike the owner was friendly and helpful. He left a small Christmas tree in the cottage and a huge box of shortbread as a gift for us, which was a lovely touch. It was great being surrounded by his farm animals, we loved waking up to see the sheep out in the frosty fields. The location is also ideal - we managed to visit Whitehaven, Gosforth (with some very lovely pubs), Ravenglass, Windermere and Coniston in 4 days. Just beware of the Hardknott Pass - it's a truly awful road and should be avoided at all costs... despite what the sat nav says! All in all, I absolutely loved our week away here and hope to go back one day.

The host was excellent from the time we arrived until we left. He ensured we had all that we needed and made our stay very comfortable throughout our stay including providing sufficient logs etc for the log burner. Due to the holiday being at Christmas, it was enhanced by wonderful views from the property overlooking the snow capped mountains including Mount Scafell. We will definitely recommend this holiday cottage to anyone and we plan to return there without a doubt.

Lovely surroundings, fantastic cottage and a wonderful host. Definitely returning.

The position of the cottage for exploring the South West area of the lake district is perfect. The accommodation on a working farm had everything you could wish for and was clean and spacious, with a lovely view towards the mountains. The only thing lacking was an outside area to sit and enjoy a barbecue with the lovely view. The owners were friendly and helpful.
