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 and a large parent/child shower room. 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).

Our first time to this site.

This review is for Ravenglass

Our first time to this site. Lovely spot really good dog walk outside the site 5 minute walk to the front which was more an estuary. Train ride to Eskdale is a must and so dog friendly. Beautiful walks at the other end and a very reasonably priced cafe. Would definately recommend the Ratty Arms for a meal, again very dog friendly and good food. Nice walk to Muncaster Castle tho we didnt go in as very expensive. Not sure if we would visit this site again, would probably go further east into the Lake District.

On arrival at reception we were given a warm welcome by Tanya we had visited Ravenglass a few times previously we were directed to our pitch by Ron and later had a pleasant chat with him. We feel that however the pitches are very tired and need a complete recovery as due to the heavy rain pitches were dirty and even flooded with mud they are not large enough to fit an awning even a porch awning (we could not use ours as they have to be pegged on the grass ours would have been pegged close to the path to the toillets and other facilities. This site is always full to capacity club could spend our money by upgrading the pitches, Overall a great big thanks to the site managers Ron and Tanya and their assistants who all do a fantastic job under difficult circumstances.

This is my first experience at Ravenglass. All the hard standing seemed well stoned.

This review is for Ravenglass

This is my first experience at Ravenglass. All the hard standing seemed well stoned. This made it difficult to put the tent up. But managed ok in the end. Toilets were kept very clean as was the site. There were 3 toilets and a trough in the gents. Two showers. I fell foul of turning up early before one and had to wait half an hour. They shut reception 11-1 but this is for site maintenance. Some hook ups were a good long way from the pitch so I'd check your cables are long enough. Ravenglass is as lovely little village. On post office couple of restaurants. We ate at the ratty arms. I couldn't finish my large gammon n chips it was huge but lovely. Some very nice walks on the estuary and esk trail up to Munster castle. Watch your dogs paws on the beach and watch out for adders in the long grass on the estuary down from the village. A local tells everyone about them. Didn't see them myself. Would I go again. Yes.

This review is for Ravenglass

Lovely quiet site a 5 min walk into Ravenglass where there are a 2 pubs with good food\drink and lovely atmosphere untill 11pm. You have the Eskdale Railway 'La'al Ratty' also on your doorstep for exploring nearby landmarks, fells. Nearest larger type shop is COOP in Seascale 6 miles\14 mins away. There is an Esso garage 2 miles away with a small shop. With Wasdale Head and Wast Water only 9 miles away it's excellent for exploring\climbing the eastern fells such as Scafell and the Pike; also the excellent Wasdale Head Inn with copious real ales, cake and food.
