Muncaster Castle’s Coachmans Quarters B&B

Stay with us in the gardens of Muncaster Castle

The Coachman’s Quarters B & B is located in the old stable yard buildings within the picturesque grounds of Muncaster Castle.

A stay in our four star bed and breakfast includes free entry into the Gardens for the duration of your stay plus the Hawk & Owl Centre (open mid-Feb to Christmas) and reduced price entry into the Castle (Easter to end October Sun-Fri). We also offer a range of residents’ discounts including money off food at our sister hotels nearby and reduced price tickets for nearby attractions.

Coachman’s Quarters guests have the opportunity to enjoy the peaceful gardens in the evenings, when the other visitors have all gone home!

The Coachman’s Quarters offers excellent value for families with family rooms from £110 per night (for 2 adults and 2 children sharing), with access to acres of gardens and woodlands plus the children’s play area in the evening to tire out the little ones before bed.

We have ten letting rooms, nine of them ensuite, providing a wide range of accommodation to suit everyone including dog friendly rooms and family rooms. We also have a large room with access to the house bathroom sleeping 6 in bunk beds (new in 2018).

There is a large communal lounge, kitchen and dining room too available to residents. For the evening, meals to reheat can be ordered with the Castle cafe or residents are welcome to self-cater. However there are many good places to eat close by, with three inns in Ravenglass alone, just a mile away.
