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.

Very enjoyable walks from site and helpful map from site.

This review is for Ravenglass

Very enjoyable walks from site and helpful map from site. The local stream train to a waterfall and walks were lovely. Was fit at the end of the stay due to walking up and down the hill to the amenities. Lovely seafood shop in Whitehaven. A very enjoyable stay will be back again.

This review is for Ravenglass

Very impressed with the site but the charges seem exorbitant at this time of the year, not comparing very well with commercial sites and age discount not applied. However we were impressed by the onsite wifi which was just �1 per stay.Good day out using the discount tickets on the La'al Ratty railway and good food at the Inn at Ravenglass (also with a discount ticket but on brochure this pub has a different name so do ask). Staff were very helpful as we phoned ahead as we were two family parties and they kindly reserved a couple of pitches next to each other for us.

This is the most dog friendly site we have stayed at.....

This review is for Ravenglass

This is the most dog friendly site we have stayed at..... our two mutts enjoyed their stay as much if not more than us! Loads of walks near the site, our two learned very quickly how to get to the field for a run around or down to the water for a paddle... it was perfect :) The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly..... I would happily recommend this site and will be returning. Not much for children to do so not many on the site, a bonus for us boring old farts that enjoy the peace and quiet :)

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.
