The description on Zoopla continues: "Muncaster House is of traditional Lakeland design and occupies a quiet position with panoramic views of Whiteside and Grasmoor to the East, down Crummock and Buttermere to Rannerdale and Red Pike to the South and Melbreak to the West.

"This is a quieter more tranquil corner of the Lake District National Park, but no less stunning than the more visited tourist locations nearby.

"Muncaster House, is situated on a quiet road with a large garden area opposite and a 4-acre piece of land on the other side of the road with gated access and is surrounded by open fields.
