Muncaster View Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Muncaster View is a welcoming terraced cottage on a working farm a mile from Ravenglass. There are two ground floor double bedrooms, each with an en-suite shower room. Upstairs is an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner. Outside there is use of shared mature gardens, and off road parking for two cars. 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.

The village of Ravenglass is on the edge of the Lake District National Park, and is a coastal village, once a regular smuggling base. From Ravenglass it is easy to enjoy the National Park, the Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway, Muncaster Castle and the beauty of the surrounding lakes and mountains.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Views from the cottage were superb. Well positioned for exploring that area of the lake district. Clean and comfortable, easy parking. Very enjoyable stay on the whole. Farmer very friendly.

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.

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.

Have just spent a lovely week with my sister @ Muncaster view. A lovely little cottage with wonderful views over the Cumbrian hills. It is situated on a working farm and we received a warm welcome from Mike, the owner. He was a great host, working the farm and looking after us if we needed anything, nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is very quiet with only the sound of the cows and birds waking us in the morning. Well worth a visit.

My partner, Mirian, our wee dog, Cassie and I enjoyed a very relaxing stay. Ideal location and very friendly owner on site. Will return when time allows. Doug.

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.

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.

I liked the location which meant I could walk to the beach and Ravenglass with my dog. The hotels/pubs were very dog friendly and the meals of a high quality.

We enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and lovely views. The owners of the cottage were also very friendly. The cottage was very comfortable and warm.

We loved the quite picturesque location and of course the wood burner.
