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.

Good Site

This is a good site with friendly, helpful and knowledgable wardens and ground-staff. The facilities are excellent and maintained by the wardens to a very high standard. Our stay was affected by barking dogs - when one starts yapping they all start. If you are going to bring your dog keep it under control. Like many club sites the long access from the main road is narrow and, in key parts, steep and single-track. Because of this it is important to stick to the requirement not to arrive before the stated time - this site is 12 noon. Today when we were leaving at 11.25 we met a car and caravan on the narrowest (single-track)and steepest part of the access road and were meet with abuse from the elderly driver. Arriving early is an issue that the club has to address.

No lawn mowers?

We were on the site for two weeks between the 5th & 19th August & had generally beautiful weather. The conditions were perfect for grass to grow, but for the first time ever on a Club site we were not disturbed by the sound of mowers! The self catering accommodation on the site, however, seemed to be mown every other day & even had shrubs pruned. As this involved one warden watching & one working, it would have been good if the smaller mower, which was ‘parked’ could have been put to good use. Having said this, we would return to the site.

August Bank Holiday Retreat

After a very busy day dealing with the public we were looking forward to a warm welcome, this we did not get.....we did feel the Wardens on Friday and Saturday were not friendly!! We have a 7.37 m caravan and as we arrived at 6.30pm (early in our book) we had limited pitches, but settled for pitch 94, not sure what would have happened if we had been the last to arrive.... The pitches vary quite a lot a lot so it is a lottery. But the site is pretty. Only rated a 3 for facilities as my husband got the dodgy shower on the first morning. After a day out on the Sunday we arrived back to no electric. We went to the Office and there must of been a change over of Wardens lovely couple with a gorgeous dog, the Warden (sorry did not get the name) came to our van straight away to check the electrics, we could not find a fault and eventually got it going, many thanks to the happy Warden who helped us. On Monday my husband asked for a late departure and we got one wow. Thank you to the lovely lady warden. We do think that £92.10 is a little steep (not sure where the 10p comes from) WIFI worked good for us. The hotel next door is lovely. We will return to see the "Happy wardens" thanks again for the late stay..

Lovely site despite poor access

Loved this site as it gave excellent access to the Lake District and the coast. Facilities are spotless and the site itself seemed quiet. Small children had a play area but everyone respected the evening peace. One bug bear was no dog walk but the is some woodland just off site. U fortunately, one of my dogs could never quite make it that far without performing (usually in Front of someone's caravan!) My biggest complaint is that, despite it stating clearly in the book, not to arrive on site before 1pm due to narrow lanes, people were turning up from 11am with their caravans and being allowed to set up. We missed meeting an incoming van as we left the park, at 11.20am! Why can't people abide by the rules and why can't the site enforce them sufficiently. I would like to return to this site but would be nervous when it comes to leaving, for fear of meeting an oncoming caravan.

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
