Ravenglass Camping and Caravanning Club Site
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2014

There are some sections of the main A roads from J36 of the M6 to this site, that are steep, narrow and with steep and narrow bends! Some of the hills need a decent run so don't get stuck behind a tractor! The views though are great!

We arrived to a wonderful welcome from the owner who has to be commended for going above and beyond the call of duty to so many people. We watched as he helped numerous people who could not quite cope with the steep incline and tightness of entry to many of the pitches. The pitches themselves are not the largest in the world but they are flat, though we did notice one or two campervans using levellers.

The site is lovely. Quiet, secluded, pretty and so very peaceful. We loved it and will return. Showers etc, as you would expect were clean and no push button, just a lovely lever and no button pressing! A delight to use. Shop well stocked but then it needed to be as there is very little close by, this really is a remote site. Nearest supermarket ( co-op) is in Egremont, some 10 miles away.

My only suggestion is that perhaps the information room could contain details of where to find the closest chemist, dentist etc rather than just pubs and restaurants and to give full addresses of doctors and hospitals rather than just a phone number and town name. Ravenglass itself has little apart from pubs and restaurants and that's fine but you do need to know where to access services if they are needed.

The camping and caravanning club web site states this is a top site for beaches. I would disagree. Ravenglass is on an estuary. There is a beach but it is largely out of bounds as estuary beaches usually are because they are too wet on the sand to be able to safely walk upon. Further out there is mud. The other problem is that the beaches are in in a danger zone; the army use them for firing practice. The red flag is often flying and the booms are clearly heard. This means you are only allowed on a very narrow stretch of beach.

We had a fabulous holiday here. We went far and wide and enjoyed the whole area. My comments above are not criticisms, merely what I hope are helpful pointers to those travelling here. The site is gorgeous and as I say, we will return not least to enjoy once again what this area offers; good walks, gorgeous scenery, Muncaster Castle, decent cycling, Eskdale, Li'll Ratty!
