Just show me Ravenglass Cottages

Where mountains meet sea, get-away-from-it-all in a Ravenglass cottage scattered in and around this unique coastal village in the Lakes.

Steeped in history, Ravenglass was once a Roman port, thanks to its natural harbour and estuary, today dotted with fishing boats and leisure craft. There's a well-preserved Roman bathhouse in the village while the surrounding region is littered with ancient treasures from various periods - Hardknott Roman Fort, Eskdale Mill, St. Catherine's Church at Boot to name a few. Ravenglass oozes charm and amenities include a pub, couple of hotels and a few small shops.

Top Cumbrian attractions near your Ravenglass cottage

All aboard 'La'al Ratty', the delightful narrow gauge Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway! Trundle from the village through the Eskdale Valley and gaze in awe at Scafell Pike. There's also a café, gift shop, children's play area, and railway museum at the terminus.

Offering all kinds of special events from rhododendron tours to medieval weekends, another big attraction is Muncaster Castle and you can walk or cycle here from your Ravenglass cottage along the Eskdale Cycle Trail. Ancient seat of the Pennington Family, browse exquisite rooms, roam glorious gardens, view over 100 species of big-eyed beauties at the World Owl Trust and let the kids shrink to size with Max in the Meadowvole Maze.

What else? Play golf or walk the coastal path. Sample the Queen's favourite sausages and hams in nearby Waberthwaite. Or admire the wonders of nature at Eskmeals Dunes, Drigg Dunes Nature Reserve and Stanley Ghyll Force.

For a mix of historic and natural wonders, a Ravenglass cottage certainly fits the bill.
