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).

This review is for Ravenglass

this is a loverly site in nearly every respect, area is good for get to the lakes, 4g by EE works well, we could not get all free view channels but got main ones, the shop carried all the bits and bobs for day to day if you don't want to leave the site, could do with more toilets and showers but the 2 shower were excellent, better layed out than most sites.

We will be returning, we found the site very relaxing. Mostly shaded but some sunny pitches. Nice to see that the toilets and showers are properly partitioned off rather than being like a supermarket toilet (though the number of toilets and showers is a bit low for the size of site). Only real downside is lack of a reliable internet connection - particularly needed as EE and Voda have very poor reception in the area (3 is good but only 3G, can't comment on O2).

This review is for Ravenglass

There is a small shop on site which stocks necessary supplies but no local supermarket so its worth shopping beforehand. Nice walk from the entrance to the Roman bath house, its only about 500m away. You can carry on from there to muncaster which isn't far and is a great day out. Steam train to boot is also a nice day out with peaceful walks and good friendly pubs. In ravenglass we found the ratty arms in the station to be the best pub, wasn't too sure about the pennington arms, menu looked nice but it's very quiet so it felt a little uncomfortable.

This review is for Ravenglass

Arrived and after completing the formalities we were shown to pitch 12. The site has very clean facilities situated around a courtyard. The site shop is well stocked and the team were ever helpful and very friendly. The site is a great location for walks, mountain bike trails, with the added dimension of using the la'l ratty to get deeper into the cumbrian fells. We will be returning as there is so much to offer from the site.
