Ravenglass is a unique Lake District village as it is the only seaside village in the National Park. From the beach you can enjoy views to Corney Fell in Eskdale and Black Coombe whilst taking in the sea air - an unusual and truly lovely combination.
Situated on the Western peninsular of the Lake District, Ravenglass is a sleepy seaside village benefiting from coastal sunshine and within easy access of the mountains of Eskdale and Wasdale.
Rivers End is a traditional fisherman's cottage beautifully modernised to a high standard to provide self-catering accommodation for 4 people. This stylish cottage has lovely sea views and a sheltered patio to enjoy them from over the estuary. The living accommodation is arranged upside down with the sitting room on the top floor and having picture window and balcony to enjoy the stunning estuary and sea views . Even in the winter you can enjoy these views sitting infront of the cosy woodburner.
Ravenglass is a wonderful starting point for exploring the quiet western Lake District. There are plenty of walks either along the coast or over Muncaster Fell to Eskdale and beyond. It is also the starting point for the famous Ravenglass & Eskdale steam railway, which makes a leisurely seven-mile trip to the Eskdale Valley.
There are two pubs in the village and the Pennington Hotel & Restaurant (open to non residents), all of which are within a five-minute walk.
The village shop and post office sells a variety of food and newspapers and the Ratty Shop sells gifts and crafts, as well as a comprehensive range of maps and guides. There is reasonable mobile reception on the beach and in certain parts of the property.
