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.

This review is for Ravenglass

This site is an absolute credit to the management team / ground workers the toilet block was spotless and I suspect not only was it cleaned thoroughly once a day I'm sure it was tidied up throughout the day and evening absolutely spotless all the time the grounds were extremely tidy clearing leaves etc I was greeted in a very friendly manner and advised of local attractions and places of interest The only thing I would say on the negative side to visiting this site if coming from the M6 I would avoid J36 and carry on up to J40 it's a few extra miles but it's a lot easier routes when towing a caravan or driving a motor home As the section A5029 is very hilly and some quite narrow sections with blind bends ( it is perfectly passable but more stressful ) which is the last thing we want when going on holiday

So nice to see Martin & Sarah charge �2 per VISIT for wifi at both this site and their site at Eskdale. This level of charge doesn't leave you with the distinct feeling that you are being taken advantage of in the way that the charges on most other Club Sites do.

The site is not only near the start of the 'Ratty' railway but also near a mainline station.

This review is for Ravenglass

The site is not only near the start of the 'Ratty' railway but also near a mainline station. This is very useful if you want to get out and about but don't want to drive. We took the opportunity to get the train to Whitehaven, which has a really nice marina/harbour as well as other places of interest. We then walked back on the Cumbrian coastal path to St Bees before catching the train back to Ravenglass. This is a stunning section of coastline, the walk is about 7 miles and well worth the effort. the manor house pub in St Bees is an excellent place to rest your legs whilst waiting for the train. Unfortunately the bus services are very limited although we went in February so expect a slight improvement in summer but even then they do not compare to the regularity of the trains. The 'Ratty' is a must visit but expect it to be busy. We got the first train of the day to Dalegarth which was a diesel engine and had a carriage to ourselves but on the steam train which went an hour later we could see that this was pretty full - even in February. Consider getting the train one way and walking back to the campsite over Muncaster Fell. it is about 7 - 8 miles but gives fabulous views. Ravenglass itself has three pubs and upon arrival at the campsite you will get a voucher for two of them which are in the same ownership. However, they are expensive and so you will need the discount if you eat there. The Pennington Hotel has been modernised at some time in the recent past and whilst they were very friendly we found the place to lack character. The Inn at Ravenglass specialises in Fish dishes and has a good choice of real ale. However, when we went it was simply too cold to stay and enjoy food. We can only assume that they do not light their fire until just before opening . The best pub by far is the Ratty which is attached to the train station - open all day, really warm and welcoming with excellent real ale and a good choice of food.
