Dominating the Lake District coast where the mountains tumble into the sea and bursting with treasures and tales, haunted Muncaster oozes history from every rough stone which fashion the castle walls. John Ruskin described the stunning views of England’s highest mountain as “Heaven’s Gate”. Still nurtured by the family who have inhabited Muncaster for over 800 years, the surrounding gardens are wild and breathtaking, teeming with wildlife and exotic plants from around the world. The fabulous Hawk & Owl Centre flies falcons, owls, hawks, eagles, herons & vultures daily to enchant visitors with the majesty of these fascinating birds of prey. Gift shop, café, church, playgrounds, special events & onsite B&B. A romantic venue for weddings and celebrations.
