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.

This was our first motorhome adventure away from our local area. A great start.

This review is for Ravenglass

This was our first motorhome adventure away from our local area. A great start. Good local walks on beach when tide out. A good dog walk nearby helped. Meal at the local pub was uninspiring but I think that was due to it being late sunday after a busy weekend. Site shop is the only local source for essentials so shop before you arrive or travel to stock up as the shop only has basics. Day trip out without using the motorhome was on the small gauge railway. A walk to the waterfall and the train back took up 6 hours. Very relaxing 4 days.

We stayed at this site in June and received a very warm welcome from the site wardens Bruce and Kim. There are lovely walks to be had close to the site, the steam railway and Muncaster Castle are close by. The site is on a general slope and would suggest you take levelling blocks if you visit. The site shop has a limited supply of food, but still has more than the local shop/post office. The nearest petrol station (2 miles) does have a small Mace and there is a well-stocked shop in Gosforth, but otherwise the nearest supermarket is in Whitehaven ( 17 miles). We would recommend this site and we will visit again in the future.

We stayed at this site for a week in early April in our tent and despite the cold weather it didn't deter us and so glad we chose this site. It is a lovely site and the staff cant do enough for you, we were able to pick which pitch we wanted and the warden even offered to help us put our tent up. We were very impressed by how close things were and what a lovely quaint place Ravenglass is. We had a dog with us and found that both the Ratty pub and a hotel pub on the front both allowed dogs, the locals are extremely friendly an made us feel very welcome. We visited some fabulous places nearby including Wastwater which was breathtaking and we also visited Whitehaven, St Bees and Egremont, all lovely places but the best bit of the trip for us was a ride on the Ravenglass to Eskdale narrow gauge steam railway. Eskdale is a stunning place with plenty to do and we ate a lovely meal there to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. The only thing we critic (and its only very minor) is the nearest major supermarket is 17 miles away in Whitehaven which is quite a journey but it certainly wouldn't put us off going back to this site again. Facilities are really good and very clean too!
