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.

Just the tonic

Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site
Stayed mid-November 2021 for 9 nights. Meathop Fell is a lovely site. I found it to be quiet with pitches well laid out and spacious. The site is close enough to the M6 to be really handy and far enough from the A590 to be quiet. The road to the site from the A590 is tight but doable. Nice walk into Grange-over-Sands and a nice walk/cycle on the 70/700 cycle route that runs past the site entrance. We ate at the Commodore Inn in Grange-over-Sands one Sunday lunch and it wasn't great. Also had a meal at the Pig and Whistle in Cartmel and it was delicious. Cartmel itself is a lovely place to visit and is about 14 minutes from the site in the car via A590. For those who enjoy a good stroll I will suggest taking the walk from Harrowslack National Trust Car Park to Wray Castle (the walk took us about one and a half hours each way) along the side of Windermere. All said and done Meathop Fell is a site that I will probably go back to.

Nice well kept site.

Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site
Just returned from another short break at meathop, if you want a quiet break within reach of the lakes this site is ideal. you do need transport i would say as the main road and bus stop is about a mile away, our holiday was RUINED due to the butchers in grange over sands being shut (monday) lol, it really is that good. from grange its a 5 minute train to arnside or carry on to lancaster. The wardens do a good job of keeping check in smooth as long as members listen, facilities are kept clean and tidy as are the grounds , woodlands hotel is within walking distance ( 500m ) for drinks and food or take away. looking forward to a return visit.

Fab Views

Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site
Reviews - When I read reviews I'm looking for useful information. Meathop is quite a pretty site with some great views. It has lots of open pitches only a few dark tree ones unlike a recent review stated. All the usual great facilities which we don't need to mention. Useful, the bus stop is a bit of a walk, don't wait in the shelter, stand on the main road and put your hand up, otherwise buses will ignore you! Get a One day saver for £7.50, you can go to several places but still a limited service rather disappointing but I had already checked this prior to booking site. The lane to walk into Grange was flooded so that was not possible to do. Woodlands hotel bar, very friendly, allows dogs and had an excellent meal on last night. Dog exercise area good, 2 of them. Disappointing no circular off road walking for dogs, only a couple of linear road walks, yes quiet roads but not ideal. Would not recommend to stay for more than 3 nights if in a Motorhome.

Another Perfect Stay

Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site
I stayed here for the second time, in September. The rain was pouring down when i arrived at the same time as several other caravanners. Top marks to the staff who were fast tracking people to their pitches because of the weather and the queue to check in. Very peaceful site and the facilities were spotless. I can recommend Arnside chippy, and you can even watch the bore wave during a high tide. The woodlands hotel next to the site does a good take away too. Pity I never caught the little visitor that came into the awning every night to see what was in the bin! Got to expect that in the countryside I guess. I will hopefully be back in the not too distant future.

Restful quite vacation

Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site
My wife and I stayed here in late September, we really enjoyed our stay, we stayed on a service pitch which works really well for us, we have noticed some people use service pitches and still use the site facilities, we think this is a waste, we go on a service pitch so we can use our on board facilities, we had good relationship with the wardens found them really friendly and welcoming, they work hard keeping the site very tidy, that can't be easy when autumn is starting, the site now as a second dog exercise area which is really good, we went to arnside fish and chip shop and we can highly recommend it, it's excellent, approx 12 miles away, we took a thermal bag with hot water bottle inside to bring the chips back in to the caravan,yum yummy, we are definitely coming back here in 2022.
