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

As above the site was lovely - however Ravenglass is extremely quiet there isnt even a shop of any description. The "beach" is mainly mud and there is little for kids/families to do. There are three pubs/restaurants which are very nice, especially the Ratty Arms which is very reasonable with good food. The site is close to the train station and fares along the coast are cheap enough - we visited Whitehaven (the beacon museum is worth a visit) and St Bees which is beautiful with a great beach and play area and a cafe that is very cheap for great food. The la'll Ratty is also good however slightly expensive (buy tickets for it if you are already on the real trains going up the coast, it is a bit cheaper), Muncaster Castle is within walking distance of the site and again is worth a visit, pay for the falconry display as it is fantastic. All in all a great site just a little disappointed with Ravenglass itself.

Stayed for 2 weeks and both me and my dog were made very welcome by the wardens.

This review is for Ravenglass

Stayed for 2 weeks and both me and my dog were made very welcome by the wardens. All the pubs are dog friendly. The Inn at Ravenglass is a top seafood inn. You are best booking if you wish to eat there, but you will not be dissapointed.The filling station at Holmrook is a shop with a A.T.M. If the weather is very bad Ravenglass is on the main west coast railway line for a bit of retail therapy. I will be going back.

Enjoyed 7 night stay.

This review is for Ravenglass

Enjoyed 7 night stay. Although the weather was awful, we still managed to have a pleasant stay. Staff very friendly and helpful (even gave me tips on reversing onto the pitch). Very clean toilets and showers. Good little shop which sells all the essentials. Decent size hard standing pitch but would recommend using strong pegs if using an awning and a heavy hammer as the pitch is very hard. Good site for dogs - decent dog walk just outside the site entrance which leads to the ruins of the Roman bath house. Best beach we found for walking our dogs was Seascale (just a few miles up the coast).

This review is for Ravenglass

Stayed for 2 nights during a round trip and we were not disappointed by the site, great warm welcome and made sure we were in a quiet spot. Shop had some nice produce and home baking for sale. It is right next to the steam train which runs through the day but you couldn't hear it. The little village of Ravenglass is 2 minutes walk and was lovely, great Pub and little shop and the beach was brilliant for our 2 little westies. All in all a fab site for a quiet break but still with Muncaster Castle and Eskdale railway within walking distance.
