Muncaster Castle is still a privately owned family home to the Pennington’s and three generations of the family still live in the Castle today.
They are actively involved in the running of the business which is set up as a not-for-profit company. The estate employees 50 local people full time at the Castle and Gardens and this grows up to more than 65 in the height of summer.
The historic haunted castle, still a lived-in family home, is the jewel in the crown of this majestic setting on the Western Lake District. Host to private weddings, functions and parties, this awe-inspiring setting is simply idyllic.
See the Castle in all its glory and hear from the Pennington family, who have resided in the Castle since 1208, about Muncaster's colourful history and residents.
