Disappointed

Ravenshill Caravan Site
Stayed here in June 2022 followed the site direction which lead to me to a lodge site called Clear Sky Lodge Park. I could not see Ravenshill Caravan Site I pulled in to look on foot and walked into which thought was a carpark and found a Ravenhill sign but no Caravan Club sign. The area has no grass to enable you sit out and look at the view although above the lodges is spectacular. Whilst we were on site building work was being carried out on the lodge site which meant building vehicles were passing the entrance to site. I think the £25 a night price is very high for the facilities supplied.

Enjoyable Stay

Ravenshill Caravan Site
Spent 3 lovely nights here. Lovely weather, beautiful scenery and friendly hosts, we'll hopefully return next year. Generous sized hardstanding pitches with hook up and shared water. We did have to use levelling blocks but only to the first notch. Chemical waste and grey waste are perfectly adequate. As already mentioned, no TV, phone or Internet signal at pitches which was actually quite nice for 3 nights but you can get Internet at the onsite phone box. Look forward to returning.

Very good CL site

Ravenshill Caravan Site
Three nights stay. Large pitches with water and EHU. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Unfortunately we could neither get internet or phone signal, however you are unlikely to get it anywhere around this area. The site has a very good black water disposal point with adjacent 'drive over' grey water disposal point. Tranquil spot, great for star gazing. The site overlooks the holiday lodge park but it was very quiet and not an issue for us. Very peaceful and great for bird watching. Not a complaint, just an observation, it would be helpful if the waste/recycling bins could be labelled a little more clearly. Would stay again.

Could be great but… Not worth £25

Ravenshill Caravan Site
A fairly newly built but badly constructed site on slope with grey chippings, many washed away to bottom where the five main pitches are left bare and v muddy. These have not been carefully levelled so blocks required. No grass to sit out. EHU per pitch, and water per 2 pitches. Good Wi-Fi in old phone box at top of site, but does not reach pitches. Nice views up head of valley and over high quality lodges below. Grey water disposal a joke! Small grid in centre of sloping slab so water runs off and down to pitches. Stayed 4 nts. On one night there were 8 units. CL rules??? Owner said she does not follow an online booking site so gets overbooked, and also allowed one arrival to stay without a booking. Greedy? Lovely location (though about 1 mile walked to the lake head through Kielder village which is ghastly!) Just not worth top price of £25 when several basic faults. It’s a shame.

Stunning location

Ravenshill Caravan Site
Having read some of the more negative reviews, I do agree that Ravenshill is a basic campsite and costs £25 per night… which is exactly what it says in the description, so I would argue there are no surprises! But the location is absolutely idyllic and, if you love walking and/or cycling, there really is no need to move your vehicle for the duration of your stay as there are glorious walks and rides right on the doorstep. Walking distance to the pub too, although the owners were on honeymoon so we didn’t get to try it and had come fully stocked up for our 5 day stay anyway. We did drive up to the Observatory for a brilliant presentation. These book up very early but we were fortunate to be able to get a cancellation (and thanks to Jackie for pointing this out in her information as we wouldn’t have thought to check otherwise.) The wifi in the phone box was excellent and secure, which was a real bonus as both the campsite and surrounding area are pretty much off-grid in terms of phone signal and 4G. And, although we had the site to ourselves and therefore had our own personal water supply, we would only have been sharing it with one other vehicle if it had been full, which is better than most large sites. Would we come back…yes, in a heartbeat.
