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.

Fabulous location for a peaceful campervan weekend break, with plenty to do and see on foot.

This review is for Ravenglass

Fabulous location for a peaceful campervan weekend break, with plenty to do and see on foot. Several nearby eateries (booking advised) and pleasant local walks, including a short stroll to both the coast and the Roman Bath House Ruins. The Eskdale Railway to Boot is a good day out, with various walks possible. The food in Dalegarth station looked great and was a very reasonable price. Muncaster Castle is also a walk away, with extensive grounds for walking and a fascinating audio tour of the castle itself. Could happily have stayed longer. The only possible downside is that the last hour or so of the journey from the south on the A595 could be a challenge for the less confident driver, especially in poor weather.

Just back from a six night stay.

This review is for Ravenglass

Just back from a six night stay.Have to say, the Wardens are just about the friendliest and most helpful I've ever come across. The site is kept spotless. Ravenglass is a small coastal town, and to sit watching the sunset over the estuary is breathtaking. The 'Ratty' pub just over the footbridge at the bottom if the lane is adequate,good well cooked and presented food for a fair price, and dog's welcome....Not much in the way if convenience shops, but the site shop carries an excellent array of local produce and is licenced too. Lots of walking and cycling trails, and a ride on the Eskdale steam train to Boot was fun. If walking or cycling back along the Eskdale trail , the terrain is good for about 3/4 of the way, then you come to Church Hill...or as I've re-named it Cardiac hill !!!! All in all, an excellent site in a lovely area. A credit to the club. Already looking forward to returning. Thank you.

A wonderful, relaxing site. Very friendly, helpful wardens.

This review is for Ravenglass

A wonderful, relaxing site. Very friendly, helpful wardens. Drove to Coniston for a lake cruise and a trip on La'al Ratty is a must. Three decent pubs in the village: good seafood and real ales. Only minor criticism is the lack of sufficient showers (2 each male/female + family room) as the site was very busy during our stay. Facilities were spotless. Will definitely be back!
