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.

The site is perfectly situated for access to ravenglass and muncaster castle.

This review is for Ravenglass

The site is perfectly situated for access to ravenglass and muncaster castle. We arrived early in order to pick a good pitch as you do unfortunately the camp warden who received us had his own system of allocation and even though there where a number of empty suitable pitches we where allocated one of the three worst pitches along with two other motorhomes and the reason we three were given was that he gave the good pitches to those who were staying for a week or more where as we three were only there for three nights. Our money is as good as others and should not be discriminated against. This particular warden had an attitude problem but I must say that the opposite site couple were different again pleasant and accommodating. Other than this unfortunate stay we would recommend the site

Our first real camping trip and Ravenglass campsite did not disappoint.

This review is for Ravenglass

Our first real camping trip and Ravenglass campsite did not disappoint. We were welcomed at the entrance by very friendly staff and escorted to our pitch. We had plenty of room for our 5 man tent with porch and car, situated amongst the trees it was perfect. The campsite was well structured with a little shop at the entrance for limited groceries (a good breakfast could be had), a small selection of secondhand books could be purchased for 50p (I bought one just in case, but didn't look beyond the front cover so handed back when leaving :) The toilets/(2)showers in both male and female blocks/washing up room and laundry were fairly central to all campers. All of the facilities were spotlessly clean and the grounds themselves were kept in excellent order. It seemed the area is popular with both cyclists and walkers alike. Just up the road less than 5 minutes walk away is the Roman bath house site.The village consisted of 3 pubs all dog friendly I believe (we visited 2 out of 3) a post office and the railway with railway museum. The 7 mile mini steam train ride was around £15 per adult and I think £1.50 per dog and took you to Dalegarth station. Just outside Ravenglass is Muncaster castle £11.50 per adult to get into the grounds, dogs are welcome here but not inside the castle/maze or hawk and owl centre. After spending the days out we returned to the campsite which was peaceful and relaxing. Although we intend to try out many campsites we will definitely be returning here in the future. Thanks to all the staff for helping make our stay great!

This review is for Ravenglass

The gravel track around the site is very lumpy and has a very destructive KERB at one point that has been washed out and exposed, nobody has bothered to fill it or level it, most caravans passing over it nearly sustained damage, so watch out for it. The Warden is obsessed with vehicles driving on the grass and spends most of her time shouting "keep off the grass" when you might think she is standing behind your vehicle to make sure that you don't damage your vehicle. Not the best welcome, I felt that I was trespassing or something. The Chemical Toilet disposal point is disgusting, situated right by the Rubbish Skip, on many occasions I saw spillage/water running across the concrete. The disposal area looks like it was left by the ROMANS when they left hundreds of years ago. The toilets were somehow "tacky" but clean and the same with the dish washing room. The precious grass was very long around fences and trees and Stinging Nettles and Docks were a major feature. I would not have liked to have towed or positioned a caravan on this site, it is very restricted for space. The barrier by-passes are covered with pea like gravel that makes them dangerous when manoeuvring a bike or motorbike around the barrier, as the barrier will not work for these vehicles and anyway the barriers are not safe for use by bikes etc. Most pitches are under trees, not good for rain or sap dropping onto your paintwork. Would I go there again? Very unlikely.
