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.

Disappointed

Just returned after a short stay at this site. I have stayed here a few times but this time was disappointed. We stayed on service pitch. My view is I won't again due to location of pitches, there are far better pitches around the site and for the extra money the location of the pitches offer no views over the lakes and the pitch I was on was far from level. They looked as though they have been thrown together not the normal pitch standard. The hot water pressure in the whole toilet block was extreamly poor and just about a trickle making showering not worth it. I did draw it to the attention of the wardens but no real answer and nothing changed all the stay. The cold was normal pressure so something is wrong but the wardens don't shower in the shower block !! Remember there is still no fog walk and you have to go onto the lanes outside the site and into a small wood, not best. WIFI still pathetic, is this not the 21st century ? I can get better wifi on a bus and it's free not £25 a year and very poor. Think you need to invest caravan club and stop wasting money on your re branding which wasn't needed. I watched a warden change signs on the site with signs that said exactly the same !!!!! Am I missing something is this where the members money goes!!!! Well moan over and won't be returning until they get a grip. Much better caravan club sites in the lakes

One of our favourites

We spent 3 nights here in June at the end of a 3 week trip. We have stayed here several times in the past and the site is one of our favourites. It is a large peaceful site in a wooded setting(most pitches are in the shade of trees), with excellent and well kept facilities. The walk into Grange over Sands, with a small inquisitive dog, takes us about an hour - a nice walk on a quiet, fairly flat road. The Woodlands Hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the site and well worth visiting for good food, a pleasant bar and an outdoor garden area. The hotel is dog friendly, so book a table in the bar and you can enjoy a meal in the company of your pet.

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.
