Ravenglass C&CC Site, Ravenglass, Cumbria, CA18 1SR, Tel 01229 717250

To Find Site:- From the A595 watch out for signs to Ravenglass and take road into village. In a few hundred metres turn left at brown camping sign and through stone gate posts and site is on left in about 20 metres.

This rustic, wooded site with its unmettled roads reminds me of a few French and German sites I have been on. The site is quite hilly and the 55 or so hardstanding pitches spur off the site roads and are generally level. At the top end of the site there is an area for tents. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use blue CEE17 connectors. Some of the electrical bollards have TV connections but according to the site staff these are not supported and are a left over from the previous private owners. There is one central toilet block which is functional rather than luxurious. The block contains a small laundry room and a covered washing up area. The only chemical emptying point is next to the toilet block. There are numerous water and grey waste disposal points around the site. The motorhome service point has an open grill grey water disposal but it is fairly small so positioning would be crucial. There is free site wide Wi-Fi although I found this rather slow, using my own 4G data was much quicker. The site has a few Camping Pods for hire.

It is only a short walk, via a handy footpath, into Ravenglass. On the way you pass a small children’s playground. As you approach the railway bridge you can take a right which will bring you to the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. It is a 15-inch narrow gauge railway. On site there is also a small Museum which is free to enter, there is also a cafe. There is also a mainline station for stops north and south along the coast. There are several pubs in the village which do meals and a Tea Shop. There appears to be no other shops so you may have to venture further afield to top up supplies.
