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.

Just returned from two weeks at this site. Our son and his family in a Ready Camp which they described as superb and ourselves on a hard standing in a folding camper. Beautiful site amongst a glade of trees, excellent dog walks off site and ideally situated for walks in the Eskdale Valley. Well stocked little shop on site further requirements available two miles down the road in Holmbrook. Easy access to Muncaster Castle and the Ravensglass and Eskdale railway, both great excursions especially for the children. Very helpful staff who made our stay enjoyable by maintaining excellent facilities and friendly outlook. Would recommend.

The campsite at Ravenglass is beautiful. Very well situated within walking distance of both train stations, the play-park, the Roman ruins, estuary (with the lovely Inn) and Muncaster castle. Very well maintained by friendly staff and very good facilities, kept clean at all times. Great little shop on site for essentials and sweets/ice creams! Post office in the village does Barclays cash withdrawals which saved me having to drive up the coast. Really was an excellent base for our family holiday and inspired the kids to try all sorts inc kayaking on Coniston, walking in Eskdale from Dalegarth station, even climbed a mountain. Luckily the weather was unbelievable (25c all week) so already planning to return next year! Only slightly miffed that we weren't able to have a level pitch for our tent - best option was beneath trees so our tent got saturated in sap and, on our last night, was strafed by a particularly spiteful pigeon. All in all though, probably the best camping holiday we've had so far in an area of Britain we hope to return to many times.

I cant rave about this site enough, we were two families staying in the ready camp tents on site. We arrived to a very warm and friendly welcome. The ready camp tents are fab and have everything you could need for your stay. The tents were situated right near the entrance in a corner with views of the rolling hills and a small forest for the kids to run about and explore. Having 4 noisy kids we are always worried we might disturb other campers but because of where the tents are situated this wasn't the case. The site is very well looked after and the showers are spotless, the shop was great as its a fair drive to anywhere else, we managed to BBQ one night from the great choice of local produce in the shop. The best part for me was the fact you could park your car for the weekend and walk/train everywhere we wanted to go. We visited the small ratty railway which the kids loved, Muncaster Castle was a lovely 40 min walk and also a great place to visit. We also visited both pubs in Ravenglass, The Ratty Arms was great for food (but you should book in advance, we didn't but fell lucky with two empty tables) The Inn was small and the food looked amazing but mostly a fish menu so it depends what you like. The beach wasn't really a beach but the kids enjoyed exploring it and collecting sticks and dead crabs! We love the Lake District and have never been this far west but we would definitely visit again 10 out of 10 and my little 7 year old cried when we left!!

This was a lovely site in a really little village right by the coast, the site was very clean. We cycled from the site to Hard Knott Pass get for cycling, the Ratty pub was great but do book it gets busy and only severs food from 6 - 8.30pm. Lots of walks from site. Had a lovely time and hope to go back when we have the time. Excellent! thank you!
