Why stay here ...

Meathop Fell Club site has now opened for 2018 following redevelopment. When visiting, you’ll benefit from an improved site entrance, resurfaced site access roads and new motorhome waste point and serviced pitches. We look forward to welcoming you.

Peaceful Meathop Fell Club Site in pretty Grange-over-Sands is thoughtfully laid out with separate pitching areas attractively divided by shrubs and grass. The caravan park is an ideal base to launch your exploration of North Lancashire and the beautiful Southern Lake District.

Brockhole, the National Park Visitor Centre, is a good place to start your exploration, as it holds an enormous collection of information, books and audio/visual material about the Lakes under one roof. The entire area is a walker's paradise with its scenic beauty. Literary associations with famous artists are everywhere - from Wordsworth at Dove Cottage in Grasmere to Beatrix Potter at Sawrey. Another interesting excursion for the artistically inclined would be the Potter Gallery in the Main Street at nearby Hawkshead. The caravan site also gives you easy access to fun water activities at Windermere plus sailing, canoeing and windsurfing at Coniston. In addition, plenty of flat cycling can be enjoyed nearby.

If you fancy a change of scene then head to the seaside resort of Grange-over-Sands, perfect for a stroll along the promenade, dining and shopping.

Return visit

Another very enjoyable visit, enhanced by beautiful weather. Meathop never fails to impress, superb location for so many things to do in this wonderful location. Well run site by friendly and helpful wardens. Everything immaculate, the epitomy of what a caravan club site should be. Here's to the next time!

Our first stay at Meathop Fells

We stayed on this site for one week and all though we had a lovely weeks stay there are some negatives about the site. The approach road is very narrow so don’t try arriving before twelve because there are only a few passing places. Some Caravans were arriving at 10am when we were going out for the day and we had to pull over to let them past. The wardens should turn Caravans away that arrive long before twelve. Lots more non awning pitches than awning pitches. Lots of trees so very shady in most areas and watch for tree sap and seeds sticking to caravan/ car. Not for people with mobility problems as a lot of the pitches some distance from the shower block. The best thing about the site is it’s location to the lakes.

November 2017

We stayed here for 2 nights on the way home to Scotland. if you want wifi then best find somewhere else. I tried to do some catch up work but couldn't, however that didn't affect our stay. TV reception wasn't great but that was no big deal either, I'm sure a booster would do the trick. I do like radio though..... There were far too many wifi comments in the visitors book. Its a place to relax, chat, walk, cycle and just enjoy things away from the digital stuff. We are hoping to come down again in the summer. Its a 1 hour walk to Meathop but you can reward yourself in the cafes there. The town has a great butchers shop (sorry veggies) and we came away with a fair supply. There's nothing bad to say about this site. Don't rely on taxis or public transport.

pees and tranquillity

we have just had six nights at meathop fell and enjoyed every minuet of it. we went this time last year, it is a very relaxing site with fantastic views especially if you get down in the bottom to the left of the reception. the facility's are immaculately clean and the wardens are so very helpful and polite. i can not find anything negative to say about meathop fell at all. we will certainly be going again. we had a ride out on the saturday night with friends to the gilping bridge hotel for a meal, it was first class and not to expensive.
