A walkers paradise set in 6 acres of woodlands and only 500 meters from the seafront.

Its coastal location on the outskirts of Ravenglass, a pretty Roman fishing village, makes our Ravenglass Club campsite ideal for exploring the coastal areas of the Lake District National Park. The campsite sits in six acres of mature woodland, once part of the Muncaster Estate, just 500 metres from the seafront.

This secluded and peaceful setting accommodates up to 75 caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents and tents. The hardstandings for caravans and motorhomes are spacious and there is a lovely tree-lined area for tenters. The campsite also offers three wooden camping pods, modern toilet and shower facilities, a large parent/child shower room and a well-stocked licensed shop. The village of Ravenglass with its three pubs is within walking distance of the campsite.

Coastal, woodland and fell walks can be enjoyed from site and the challenging Scafell Pike is a short drive away. There are also routes for cyclists and Hadrian’s Cycle Way starts just along the lane from the site at the Roman bathhouse.

Head to Ravenglass and take La’al Ratty, the famous Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway. The seven mile journey follows a stunning route through the Eskdale Valley. The mainline coastal train runs through Ravenglass taking in St Bees, Whitehaven and Maryport.

Myself and my son camped at the top of the site.

This review is for Ravenglass

Myself and my son camped at the top of the site. The road was a bit steep but my old Astra Estate managed to get to the top of the gravel road, no fault at all of the owners, as it had rained a lot and the gravel was a bit loose. My parents rented a cottage in Ravensglass which was only 10 mins walk from the camp site. If you want to fish on the estuary, you need to get permission from the owners - Muncaster Estate. We got permission at the beginning of the week, when we visited Muncaster Castle. A visit to Muncastle Castle and Gardens is a must. The tour around the castle is about 45 mins long and you can go round at your own pace. In the gardens of the Castle there was a display of some of the owls flying, which was fantastic and the feeding of the Herons on the front lawn. Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway was fantastic and there are plenty of walks you can do. If you get the return ticket, you can get on and off the railway at each station as many times as you like. Ratty Arms pub in the village was brilliant for good 'pub grub' We ate there a couple of times. It can get busy, but we reserved a table when we had an evening meal. Pennington Hotel is apparently quite pricey so we didn't go there. The Inn at Ravenglass specialises in sea food. Quite a few campers did say that the food was really good. There is a tea room at the Rosegarth B & B in the village which serves cream teas. There is also a post office in the village. The only down side is the nearest large town is Whitehaven where there is a harbour and tescos supermarket (17 miles away) The best beach was at Seascale, which is only about 15 mins drive from the camp site.

Very enjoyable walks from site and helpful map from site.

This review is for Ravenglass

Very enjoyable walks from site and helpful map from site. The local stream train to a waterfall and walks were lovely. Was fit at the end of the stay due to walking up and down the hill to the amenities. Lovely seafood shop in Whitehaven. A very enjoyable stay will be back again.

This review is for Ravenglass

Very impressed with the site but the charges seem exorbitant at this time of the year, not comparing very well with commercial sites and age discount not applied. However we were impressed by the onsite wifi which was just �1 per stay.Good day out using the discount tickets on the La'al Ratty railway and good food at the Inn at Ravenglass (also with a discount ticket but on brochure this pub has a different name so do ask). Staff were very helpful as we phoned ahead as we were two family parties and they kindly reserved a couple of pitches next to each other for us.
