Why stay here ...

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.

Peaceful Week

This is the second time we have visited this site. We have stopped in two different areas which gave us a feel for it. The thinking out of the trees has been a great improvement as has the creation of two dog walking areas. The site is conveniently located for exploring the southern Lake District and easily accessed. Please adhere to not arriving before the due time as the approach is tight. Grange over Sands is lovely and Holker Hall is worth a visit.

A host of golden daffodils

This is the feeling we get each time we come to meathop fell site, which is beautiful each time we have visited some twenty years or more. Having visited recently the site is immaculate and all the wardens are lovely bending over backwards to ensure your safe, happy and very well looked after in these unsettling times. There has been some new additions which have updated the look of the site. I can never understand why people complain in life, you just need to think before you put out a negative karma thought.... Because it will come back to you and bite you on the bum!!! A big thank you for all that you do.

Very Disappointed this time

We have been visiting this site for thirty two years. It is in a site in a lovely location. Now though some people arrive at noon even though arrival time is 1pm, and are allowed on to a pitch. This is very frustrating when you have been in a queue at the requested arrival time of 1pm. I asked one of the staff why arrivals at noon were allowed onto the site, he said " to ease congestion" of which there was none until the 1pm units arrived and which were quickly and efficiently booked in. During the conversation with the member of staff on this subject he just shrugged his shoulders replaced his ear protectors and drove off, very rude. Other problems, dogs not on leads or on extended leads and being allowed to wander all over others pitches, vehicle speed on site, not following the one way direction signs. Add into the mix the fact some people seem unable to follow the very simple Covid guidance where the facilities are concerned. This all points to poor management of the Club Rules by certain members of the staff and I'm sorry to say The Club itself. If the people who can't follow simple guidance are new members then perhaps they could do a bit of simple reading of the Club handbook as well as being available on confirmation emails etc before arrival.

Clean and tidy site

This was a lovely clean and well organised site. The bathroom facilities were very clean. The only downside was that there was no footpath walking from the campsite so we walked on the quiet road to and from the bay.
