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 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

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.

This review is for Ravenglass

Stayed three nights in september 2014 as a family of three. Easy access on late arrival at site. Great welcome from Bruce. Ordered papers etc. Shop well stocked, impressed by �1/stay wifi. All pitchs seemed equally well laid out, flat hardstanding with plug in for coaxil tv. Plenty of water points, bins all well spaced out. The family room was great for showering our little monster. I also saw a baby bath, a nice touch. The Wardens were very friendly and a credit to the club in their welcome. The L'ill Ratty steam train was wonderful and we had a great five mile walk upto a waterfall over the moors and stepping stones.. Reccomended. A meal in the Inn at Ravenglass was also very nice at one of only two specialist fish resturants in Cumbria.. Both cheap too with discount vouchers availible on site, if you remember to take them that is! We did however both struggle to get a shower on many occasions over this weekend. Two male and two female showers supplimented by a family room is just not enough for a site this size. We like to get showered before anything in a morning and this was the only negative of an otherwise fantastic long weekend. We will be trying out some other club sites but would return.

This review is for Ravenglass

we were impressed by all the staff who showed interest in each outfits requirements. Wooded site means TV reception is poor but supported by aerial points. Good shop with wide variety of goods at reasonable prices. Three pubs within walking distance with a range of cuisine and prices. Main-line train coastline service close with service to Lancaster or Carlisle and all villages & towns in between, narrow gauge along Eskdale valley adds to attraction of the area. We enjoyed walking, cycling and train rides with superb support from the site staff. One of the best sites we have ever stayed at in over fifty years touring.
