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 70 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 and a large parent/child shower room. 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 review is for Ravenglass

The welcome was nice,the facilaties were nice and clean,can hear bats and owls at night which was nice but there was a generator or something running all night which was annoying and some of the people had big dogs that they didn�t stop barking early in the morning.The weather wasn�t very pleasant so not much to do locally with children.The food locally is rediculously expensive.Came home a day early due to the rain but no chance of a refund for the night we didn�t stay. :(

This review is for Ravenglass

I have stayed here twice now. 12 months in between stays. I can say that the site is kept lovely and clean, I do wonder what people expect from a camp site. You're not staying in a 5* hotel. I found the access easy. I saw huge motorhomes and caravans accessing the site with no issue. The staff were exceptional as always. Ravenglass is a lovely little village. I've eaten at both the Ratty and at the Pennington. Both were very good value for money. The special burger at the Pennington was huge. Also my wife had the chicken Kiev. It was a full chicken breast properly done, not frozen rubbish. Real ale at the Ratty is fantastic and has quite a selection of spirits. There are only two showers in the male toilet block but are of a good size and nice and warm. The toilets were always kept clean while we stayed. There are lovely walks around Ravenglass. I hope to go back there soon and have recommended the site to friends.

This review is for Ravenglass

This site needs money spent on the roads on the toilet block on the Hard standings, in fact everywhere, never mind the one month close down to get that extra pound from the members, Close it for 3 months and the members will return in droves, this was my first and last visit. I do not do lumpy roads we have them on the Motorways already. So come on spend the Cash as queuing to use the shower I can do that at home when the grand kids appear. The place has Beaches, Trains to anywhere and great Pubs

This is a really lovely site, with pubs and an estuary within walking distance.

This review is for Ravenglass

This is a really lovely site, with pubs and an estuary within walking distance. Recommend the 'Pennington Hotel' for great food and friendly service. On arrival to the campsite, we were greeted by the site manager who was incredibly helpful and friendly. The grass pitches with electric hook-up sit at the top of a slope, in an open grass area. Those without electric are under trees and more shaded. Lots of wildlife, and the sound of the sheep will keep you amused! We arrived on Tuesday and had a large area to pitch, really friendly neighbours ad generally really peaceful and relaxing. Several water points dotted around the site, dog bins. The toilet/shower/washing up/cleaning block is centrally located by gravel pathways. The reception has a small selection of items to buy including ice and you can rent out freezer blocks (our cool box broke down so this was very handy!). There are only 2 showers on site. We've visited a few C&C sites now and this was by far the smallest to accommodate 70 pitches and it was near enough full, so being able to have a shower meant learning what times were best and less busier. There are walks near to the site so good for the dogs, and a playground for the kids within walking distance. Also the steam railway is on our doorstep. The estuary is pretty in the evening at Sunset. Great base for exploring around this side of the Lake District and we visited Coniston, Hawkshead, Windemere and did a couple of hike in the 4-days we were there. It was unfortunate that we had to leave a day early but a group of campers arrived and they really had no respect for their neighbours, loud, swearing (even the kids), very rowdy, urinating in the bushes near the tents, blaring music, even turning on their car headlights late at night so the kids can play football right - they were playing away from their own tents an outside ours and other campers. Such a shame as they didn't care they were ruining it for everyone else. Shame no wardens around to monitor.
