  • "Firstly the positives."

    The living room furniture and bed were comfortable. There was a good shower above the bath. Decent internet speed all be it patchy. It was nice and warm when the heating was on. Ravenglass itself is a great location for walks on the doorstep and places to visit close by including Ennerdale water, Muncaster castle and St Bees. Now the downsides and the reasons we won’t be returning to this property which is a shame as we really liked the area. The property itself needs some general maintenance. A few examples are chunks missing from the wall in the hall, cracked tiles in the bathroom, lots of scuff marks on skirting boards that just require a clean or coat of paint, curtain pole bracket damaged. There was no grill pan in the kitchen. Some pans such as the griddle need replacing and weren’t fit to use. The microwave wasn’t clean. The garden wasn’t secure for our dog with a section of fence falling down as well as another section broken. There also appears to be rhubarb growing in the garden which is poisonous to dogs. The app it says to use for TV called “TV Player” was logged out. When we found an app with channels most freeview channels were missing. Thankfully we had a fire TV stick with us and the internet speed was good but patchy which might have been because it was shared with another property. I think the bathroom could do with an extractor fan.

  • "Had another fantastic holiday in Ravenglass."

    Ravenglass Haven was clean, very comfortable and is in an amazing location. Conservatory was lovely to chill in, both in the morning over breakfast or in an evening reading. The Pennington food was absolutely spot on. La'al Ratty is a fun, easy way to get in and out of the fells for walking so car barely moved all week. Muncaster Castle, grounds, owls and bird displays were beautiful to see. Weather looked iffy but we were lucky and had much less rain than originally forecast. Walking on the estuary with my camera was a lovely way to begin or end each day with more egrets than I've ever seen in one place before, heron, curlews, oyster catchers and more. Only minor issue was lack of drawers to unpack suitcase properly but am looking to book again.

The property

Holmrook 3.1 miles.

Tucked away in the picturesque village of Ravenglass, the only coastal village within the Lake District National Park, is this semi-detached property, Ravenglass Haven.

Set over two floors, Ravenglass Haven welcomes families and two pets for a delightful break close to plenty of beautiful countryside.

Upon arrival, you are greeted by an off-road parking space, positioned directly outside the property so you can easily unload your belongings.

After a day of ambling the local area, the lounge will welcome your return with the woodburning stove and Smart TV equipped with Netflix and Amazon Prime, perfect for a movie night in.

Step through to the kitchen, hosting a range of appliances including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and even a dishwasher, so washing up will be no trouble!

Enjoy a quiet read in the conservatory, or step out to the rear garden and soak up the last of the evening sunshine.

The bedrooms at this Ravenglass cottage rest upstairs, including two doubles and a bunk, along with a gleaming bathroom where you can have choice of bath and shower over.

From your front door you can stroll down to the estuary and take advantage of the fantastic sunsets over the sand dunes or discover the remains of the Ravenglass roman Bath House, established in 130 AD, from which the Hadrian’s Wall cycle track starts.

Muncaster castle and gardens are easily accessible by car and the beautiful grounds and house are open to visitors, and also host year round events such as concerts and bird shows to entertain the whole family.

Take a ride on the Ratty Steam Train up the Eskdale Valley.

It’s a wonderful experience and there is a good cafe at the of the line as well as some fantastic walks; the perfect day trip!

With the Lake District close by, a wealth of outdoor activity is within reach, including a climb up the mighty Scafell Pike, with paths ranging from easier to higher difficulty.

For those seeking adventure, embark upon one of the many mountain bike, road bike or walking routes departing from your front door.

Your situation in Ravenglass means you only have to travel just over 10 miles before reaching England's north-west coast, so why not take a day to visit Seascale?

However you choose to spend your precious holiday time, Ravenglass Haven is a superb choice, all-year-round.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
