"On the western edge of the Lake District National Park"
Our Club Site at Ravenglass was once part of the Muncaster Estate. Set in six acres of mature woodland, it lies on the outskirts of the pretty fishing village which shares its name, in a quieter area of the Lake District National Park.
Please note there are only service pitches on the site, therefore the fee of £3.20 applies at all times, except for tent campers.
The area is a walker’s paradise on Cumbria’s western coast.
The seafront is 500 yards from the campsite – with opportunities for fishing.
The village of Ravenglass has a craft shop, pubs and a lovely natural harbour.
The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway – La’al Ratty – is a narrow gauge railway running up to 16 trains a day.
Muncaster Castle is a great family day out and includes the World Owl Centre and MeadowVole Maze.
A Roman bathhouse is 500m from the site and marks the start of the Hadrian's Cycle Way route 72.
Whitehaven is an attractive town with a working fishing harbour.
The Beacon is the new attraction in Whitehaven. Five floors of interactive history, weather, games and much more.
Wastwater, winner of ITV’s Britain’s Favourite View, is particularly peaceful. It can only be reached from the west.
The village of St Bees – at Cumbria’s most westerly point - has a beautiful sandy beach.
Maryport Aquarium also has radio-controlled boats and mini-golf.
The mainline railway travels along the coast, reaching Sellafield, St Bees, Whitehaven and Maryport.

nice hardstanding pitches with plenty of space, different sizes for different vehicles. We overlooked a field full of new born lambs - aahhh!!!
facilities fine, you may want to avoid top level parking spaces if you want to be nearer the block. Wardens very friendly and helpful.
If you want a "hearty" breakfast before you leave, try the Turntable cafe at the steam railway station......
Mainline station very close and really handy for getting about.
overall a lovely place and would certainly return.

What a truly fantastic site. Carol made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The pitches were perfect and level. The toilet blocks were cleaner than any I have visited. The park was quiet and tranquil. Thank you to you all. We will be back, and will highly recommend this site to our family and friends. A************
This was my first time ever in a caravan. And I loved it. Andy and Sam made me feel immediately welcome without being intrusive. The site was beautifully landscaped with trees and bushes which gave each pitch a degree of privacy. There were fresh flowers in the toilet block and plenty of bird feeders full of food and there for birds and birdsong. It could not have been more peaceful, relaxing and lovely.

Ravenglass Camping and Caravanning Club Site, Ravenglass, Cumbria
This reviewer is a family with children, a camper
We visited this site in April and on arrival we were greeted by a very friendly site manager who showed us to our pitch, the pitches are of varying size and set on different levels and are amongst trees , all caravan/ motorhome pitches have EHU, levelling blocks would be advisable for most pitches. Fresh and waste water points are available within easy reach of most pitches and there is one chemical disposal point to the rear of the toilet block and a motor home service point also close to the toilet block.
The toilets and showers were kept immaculately clean throughout our stay and whilst there are only two showers each ladies and gents this did not cause a problem on our visit, there is also a family/ disabled bathroom .
The site reception also acts as a well stocked shop with local produce well represented including freshly baked bread ,local ice cream to name but a few, newspapers are to order and there is the usual range of camping and caravanning accessories available. Car hire is also available on site for those who require it
The local area provides plenty of attractions the nearest being the Ravenglass to Eskdale steam railway which is in the village and 5 mins walk from the site, also close by are the sellafield visitor centre , the coastal village of St Bees and the stunning views of Wast water, farther afield are Workington and Whitehaven and to the south Ulverston and Barrow in Furness.
The village of Ravenglass is a short walk from the site and is quiet and peaceful there is a post office and a hotel/ restaurant and also the Ratty arms pub, named after the railway and set in the old station here a very warm welcome awaits and the food is to be thoroughly recommended, there is also a good choice of real ales available. When we were there there was a quiz night on a Tuesday and all are welcome.
All in all this site and its surroundings provide a wonderful setting for a short break or longer as there is enough in the area to keep most busy for at least a week weather permitting.
