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.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

This review is for Ravenglass

This was a lovely site in a really little village right by the coast, the site was very clean. We cycled from the site to Hard Knott Pass get for cycling, the Ratty pub was great but do book it gets busy and only severs food from 6 - 8.30pm. Lots of walks from site. Had a lovely time and hope to go back when we have the time. Excellent! thank you!

Wanted to visit Ravenglass for some time, Unfortunately, due to our motorhome being 8.

This review is for Ravenglass

Wanted to visit Ravenglass for some time, Unfortunately, due to our motorhome being 8.6m long, the online booking system always seems to say site full or unavailable for unit length, when phoning the site directly permits availability. This was the case with Ravenglass and after speaking to the site warden directly, a booking was made without any issues. This 'can do' attitude continued to our arrival and throughout our stay, with a team of wardens on hand to check us in and direct us to our pitch and advise what's where in the area. A very friendly welcome. Other rival club to take note! Site is part under trees and on a slope, with pitches of gravel hard standing. Camping pitches were grass and although situated at the top end of the site, were excellent. Levelling ramps required for most pitches. The shop was fully stocked and reasonably priced. The toilet blocks were probably the cleanest facilities I have ever experienced on any campsite. There's a washing up room, laundry room and information room. Motorhome service point was easily accessed although we only used this on arrival topping up/empty at nearest water point. Access to the village was via footpath and took less than 5mins to walk. Here one could find a children's play area, the Ravenglass & Eskdale railway, a couple of pubs, small shop and a tea rooms. We were slightly disappointed with the beach, as this was more a tidal estuary but it did make a picturesque outlook when the tide was in. The mainline railway runs through the village and we caught the train to Whitehaven one day but could have gone on to Carlisle. There wasn't a great deal to do for us but I would recommend the site as it really is lovely. The only negative was the crows (there's a lot of them) nesting in the trees above. The squawking was constant and very loud from dawn til dusk, but this is just part of camping in the countryside.

This was our first time visit to this site and we were very impressed.

This review is for Ravenglass

This was our first time visit to this site and we were very impressed. The lay out of the site is interesting as it has pitches at differing levels many of which being separated by numerous mature trees and hedges. This certainly creates a peaceful, spacious feel to the site. Our daughter and son-in-law had also decided to "try camping" for the first time and were to join us during our stay. We mentioned this to the Site Wardens, Gary and Sue when we checked in. I have to say they could have not been more accommodating as they arranged for our newbie campers and us to be pitched together so they would have some extra support on this, their first trip out. The site is great for walkers, especially those, like us, with dogs. It is certainly a site where you can park up your motorhome and simply leave it as many walks are available simply straight from the site. The added bonus of having the small gauge "Ratty Railway" close by brings with it the benefit of the numerous walks which can be completed using the railway for part of the route. Would we visit this site again, yes - definitely! How did our newbie campers get on? Well they enjoyed it that much they are now already planning their next trip and are to join the Club. Thanks again Gary and Sue for helping make it such a successful trip.
