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

The location is excellent to tour this often neglected coastline and the lakes which are not on the usual tourist trek. We went to photograph Lake Wastwater and were not disappointed.. Having made this initial visit we came away wishing we could capture the amazing moods created by the modulating light and weather..... Had a good day taking the mainline train to Carlisle. The only negative aspect was the testing stretches of road between the motorway (Kendal) and Ravenglass.,,I've sent some photos to support the wonder of the location that is wastwater.... Some great sunsets over the lagoon at Ravenglass...

This is a marvellous site for those who want to leave the rat-race behind.

This review is for Ravenglass

This is a marvellous site for those who want to leave the rat-race behind. There are some wonderful walks easily started from the site. We stayed 4 nights and never moved the motorhome until we were leaving (which we really didn't want to do). We took the narrow gauge train up to Dalegarth with our bikes and cycled back. Bit of a push, literally, at one point but well worth it. The 8.5 miles brought us back to the site having gone through the grounds of Muncaster Castle. This prompted a visit the following day and it was well worth it. The bird displays and the views up the valley were fabulous. If you want night life, loads of pubs, organised activities sandy beaches on the doorstep, then don't go to Ravenglass! But if you want a peaceful escape then Ravenglass is the place to be. Oh, and don't miss the Roman Bath House.
