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

If you plan to visit this site stock up with groceries before you arrive as the nearest decent size supermarket is sixteen miles away, a tin of baked beans cost me 80 pence from the site shop, a lovely site and a wooded walk to the beach if you turn immediately left out of the site which made it safe for my dogs. I can recommend the food at the Ratty Arms and the steam train where you have to pay �1.50 for your dog to ride with you, but you can get on and off and when you want the train to stop you just stick your arm out. My daughter and I found the map we were given with suggested walks and times each one would take differed widely when we did one walk to the Japanese garden it was supposed to be an hour and a half from the station and back and took us about three quarters of an hour which included the over grown Japanese garden and I'm a pensioner with a dodgy hip. Wast water is mind blowing be prepared to give way as the road is narrow, we travelled to Ambleside, Coniston and Grasmere which are about an hour and a half away there is more to do in the South but very busy and we couldn't park at all in Ambleside. There are two local beaches close to the camp site close by is Beesands which is dog friendly with a huge sandy beach and is about four miles away the other beach is about twelve miles away but not as nice as quite a lot of pebbles. The pass my sat nav wanted me to go across was about two metres wide with ( I was told ) grass growing up in the centre of the road, better to just go the long way round. Stunning scenery and lots of empty beaches a great place to visit.

This review is for Ravenglass

Staff and site are lovely and it is convenient for pubs & coast. Dog and walker heaven. However the site has only two showers in men's and women's block and a family bathroom. There were complaints about this whilst we were there. Not a patch on the caravan club sites we have used. More facilities needed C&CC please and then we would be back.

This review is for Ravenglass

Arrived early as had been travelling for 8 hours from Dorset. Was told that we could not wait where we were and directed around the site (which had a number of free pitches) and sent into the village to the local car park to wait until 1pm. Not a friendly welcome unfortunately, seemed stressed as 6 units waiting to book in when we did go back at 1pm. Found the site clean, but our pitch was in the shade due to being under large trees. As it overlooked a field and far reaching views, we were asked if we would like to face the views. We didn't - no motor mover! This did lead to problems with units facing different ways - got back to find motorhome positioned the other way and their children playing frisbee etc against our awning. Fantastic site for dogs . . . lovely walks either along the 'beach' with the added benefit of a pint outside The Inn and watching the beautiful sunsets, or in the shaded wooded areas. Either way, beautiful walks! Wonderful eating and drinking facilities within easy walking distance and a fantastic mini steam railway with varied stops leading to further excellent drinking and eating places (The Boot Inn especially!!) The site was wonderfully clean with all the usual facilities. Main line train going to other towns along the coast (dog friendly). All together a wonderful stay, but if only the RULES could be adapted to allow for people travelling from the other end of the country - no entry before 1pm STRICTLY and not allowed to leave before 7am due to padlocked gate (which wasn't padlocked) and the managers/wardens are not willing to go outside of these rules to allow for travelling issues (we would have liked to leave before 7am, but were told 'rules are rules'!!).
