  • "Couldn’t recommend this property enough!"

    The pictures really don’t do justice how beautiful it is. We had a wonderful week away, the property had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and was the perfect base to explore the surrounding areas. The owner is super friendly and communicated so well. We’d love to come back in the future.

  • "I have attempted twice to contact owner prior to giving feedback to Sykes."

    On departure day we searched around to look for owner to inform him of the issues we were concerned about and we also left a letter on the table in Muncaster View. I have today sent a text but to no avail. The following issues were of concern to us: 1. The shower tray did not drain (first bedroom opposite front door) 2. Mixer tap in kitchen area was coming away from its base and we were worried that it might come away altogether and cause flooding 3. Only 1 window could be opened in the property. All the others were sealed shut. 4. The telly was far too small for the size of room and far too high on the wall. We were unable to view the screen properly and could not read the subtitles as the screen was so high up. 5. The freezer compartment of the fridge was dirty. 6. The open fire despite having lots of coal and kindling didn’t have any paper to light it. 7. Toilet seat in second bedroom was very loose and could have caused injury. We both feel that the amount of money paid for 3 nights for a cottage with so many problems was very overpriced.

  • "There was no stair gate even though one was requested."

    This was very inconvenient with a 10 month old baby. There were a lot of cobwebs that should have been cleaned up before we arrived. There was mildew on one of the quilt covers. The DVD player and TV remote didn't work. The water didn't drain away properly from one of the showers. The fridge freezer was not especially clean and sometimes froze food in the fridge section. The redeeming feature was the washer drier.

  • "Absolutely loved it some great walks straight from the house and easy the travel to local attractions."

    Only thing I would say is didn't find many places to get food so might be worth taking food or stopping in a shop on route (but maybe we just didn't go to the right places) Loved it so much will definitely return soon can't recommend enough Really lovely comfortable cosy house had everything we needed amazing log fire and views of the mountains Hosts really helpful and welcoming

    Main drawback is poor internet availability.

  • "Some people had complained about slow broadband and too many flies."

    Well it’s on a working farm in the countryside and you are 15 minutes from Wastwater, there is a deserted beach 10 minutes away, what’s not to like? Maybe if the internet is the most important thing to you then try holidays somewhere else as the area more than makes up for this very, very small inconvenience. Owner very friendly and overall a great property.

  • "The cottage was as described, very clean, with spacious living area, well equipped for an offering that is not described as deluxe."

    Very snug and comfortable, with lots of storage for clothes and food. There were a couple of negative comments in the visitors' book, but obviously from people with unrealistic expectations - eg, comments about flies - but if you book a holiday on a farm, you should expect to find flies in the summer! Biggest problem for us was that the wi-fi was down during our stay, but that wasn't the hosts' fault as there were mast repairs going on. Maybe it should be noted that it is a rural supply with limited signal, but that there are plenty of places offering free wifi in the nearby villages.

  • "A lovely little cottage in the Lakes."

    Clean, tidy and comfortable. It would have been really useful to have a full sized fridge freezer as the cottage is advertised as accommodating two couples. We shared the place with two friends but our food was crammed into the small fridge freezer. Maybe most people don’t use it but my partner has food allergies so we can’t eat out and need to have our own food with us.

    Only after making full payment were we advised that we could not leave our dog at the property. This did not suit our needs and had we been aware of this prior to booking we would have gone elsewhere. Please ensure information like this is published in the property details to enable customers to make fully informed choices.

  • "We had a lovely holiday and enjoyed staying at muncaster view."

    The location was excellent, the owner was friendly and helpful. There is a great coastal path walk to ravenglass avoiding the main road. The cottage itself is not luxury, but you get what you pay for. The only little niggle we had was with the shower, it was very temperamental, sometimes boiling hot then suddenly went freezing cold, couldn't control it at all, which is not what you want after a long day walking in the fells. Apart from that, we loved our time there.

    Beds really comfortable. Large open plan living, eating and cooking space was also really good. Fab views out over the hills. 2km walk to Ravenglass and the railway. Very peaceful and quiet. We cook and there were just a couple of cooking tools we could have done with, but otherwise really well kitted out.

About the location


Eskdale 4 miles; Wasdale Head 6 miles.

Ravenglass is a small village on the west coast of Cumbria, which made its living from fishing, and in the 18th Century the harbour was also used for smuggling tobacco and other contraband from the Isle of Man. A popular attraction of western Lakeland, the famous Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway, a narrow gauge steam railway known as "L’al Ratty" runs daily from the station through some of the finest and most scenic country in Britain. Just minutes from Ravenglass and easily accessible by a new cycle track is Muncaster Castle, with magnificent gardens and views up to Scafell Pike, and home of the World Owl Trust. This great location boasts a skyline dominated by towering peaks including Scafell - England's highest peak, whilst the nearby stunning valleys of Eskdale, Wasdale and Dunnerdale provide breathtaking scenery to be enjoyed throughout the year. With beautiful Wastwater - the deepest lake in the country, and St Olaf's - one of the smallest churches in England amongst the many landmarks in this beautiful area, this stunning location will have visitors returning time and time again.

Please note the minimum night stay in this property is 3 nights, this property does not accept 2 night bookings.
