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).

Laminated walking maps are available from the welcoming managers.

This review is for Ravenglass

Laminated walking maps are available from the welcoming managers. Main Street is a characterful dead-end when the tide is in, but there are great walks to be had. The Ravenglass and Eskdale narrow gauge railway goes up to Boot with more walking and three pubs. The three hostelries in Ravenglass are full of character and characters! The mainline train will take you to such as St Bees and Whitehaven, or back down to the fantastic Prince of Wales at Foxfield with its own brewery. Muncaster Castle with its owlery, bird displays, heron-feeding, beautiful gardens and interesting interior makes an excellent family day out. I guess the area sometimes pays the price (not economically!) of being too busy for us during school holidays, so we avoid them.

This review is for Ravenglass

It was my first time camping, my parents took their caravan and I had recently bought a tent. The site was excellent, nicely presented all amenities were kept to an excellent condition. The shop that they have has all that you need, there is a pub nearby and worth a visit. I am definitely going to go back and stay for longer can't wait to go back. If your thinking about going to this site may I just say book it!

Good welcome and knew who I was, from reg number before I'd finished pulling up.

This review is for Ravenglass

Good welcome and knew who I was, from reg number before I'd finished pulling up. I wrote ahead and asked for pitch with a clear view south so I could use my satellite TV of an evening, which was sorted for me no problems. Thanks so much for that Ron & Tanya. They do have plug in TV points on each pitch though I should add if that meets your requirements. Facilities spotless at all times, proper showers you turn on and off not push button. Always hot water, which is needed at New Year break. Site was pretty much full over the time we were there, but was never much of a wait for anything. Great walks and countryside in the area. Didn't use any of the local pubs so I can't comment on them. Other than the shop ran at reception there are no largish shops in the area, with about a 15 trip to get to one. So stock up on what you need before arrival. Fresh milk and eggs etc and the essentials are available on site and should be supported to keep it available. Thanks again Tanya and Ron.

Really friendly welcome after a 300+ mile tow. Pitches a bit small - but well spaced.

This review is for Ravenglass

Really friendly welcome after a 300+ mile tow. Pitches a bit small - but well spaced. Facilities extremely clean and well cared for with shedloads of real hot water. Lots to do and see. Local pubs were generally good - tho'the Ratty Arms needs some extra help. Good food tho'. Take the train to Eskdale, walk round to the Stanley Ghyll waterfall and the riverside path to the George IV for an excellent lunch. The Green station is but a few paces away for an easy return to site. If you feel more adventurous a hike over Muncaster Fell is richly rewarding.
