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.

Friendly service.

This review is for Ravenglass

Friendly service. Could imagine it will be darker in the summer due to tree cover but it wasn't an issue in October. Best showers ever. My wife was able to walk our dog up onto the fells directly from the site. Local walks. The village of Ravenglass is pretty with an interesting harbour and pub/hotel food was available if required. I have recommended it to friends.

just loved this place, as I travel on my own liked that it was a compact site, but each had our own area. Parked the car on the Monday when I arrived and didn't move it again until I left on Friday. Lovely walks along beach, and the little train was wonderful, my dog and I could take the train in the morning have a hike, then lunch at the station (Erskdale) then train back. There's also the Main Line train. didn't have time to go on this up the coast but will next time... Brilliant in the morning, have a lovely

This review is for Ravenglass

We found this site to be great more geared to caravans and campervans but adequate for our large tent. I wouldnot recommend it for kids as there are no facilities for them but frankly that's one of the sites greatest assets. Its extremely clean and tidy and the showers / communal areas are top notch better than any we have been to so far. This is a real gem we will definitely be back as the Ratty Arms pub is only 5 mins walk away and serves excellent food.
