Why stay here ...

Meathop Fell Club site has now opened after significant 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.

nice relaxing well kept site with exalent wardens.

We use this site quite often, we love it.Tthe wardens are very friendly, helpfull and informative. The site is well kept, clean and tidy.It is handy for the Lakes, Yorks Dales and west coast sea side resorts. We have had meals at the Gilpin Bridge and the Woodlands Hotel, both superb. fish and chips at Arnside is also a must.

another perfect club site

this was a first visit for us and as it was only 45 mins from home we were hoping for it to be a destination for a quick retreat from the bustle of everyday life. we were not disappointed. the site is well tended, clean and spacious pitches. the wardens were welcoming and helpful with suggestions of pitches that would suit us. the dog walking, although not on site was just outside the door and a local hotel restaurant is also just outside the site, doing reasonable food. we were lucky with the weather in February and enjoyed a stroll along the promenade in Grange over Sands which is only a 10 minute drive away. we shall return especially as it is so near.

Poor WiFi and leveling on some pitches difficult

This is a lovely site BUT Considering this site has had a "makeover", you would have thought that some of the points raised by members would have been improved upon - such as > WiFi is very poor on this site > Some of the pitches are almost beyond leveling for modern caravans/ motor homes. It would have been good for the club to have addressed these points and made this site 100% Suppose club members will still be raising these points throughout 2019 but I hope points are taken on-board and fixed. This site would other-wise be top rated, wardens are great, toilet blocks are superb, layout is good, the area and views are superb.

Lovely site

This is a lovely site ,immaculate, great showers, very pleasant and efficient wardens..a good walk into grange about 3 miles but easy walking, a nice lunch in grange and a good walk back, we are only an hour from home so it makes an ideal 2 nights in winter to give our motorhome a run, spring time would also be lovely here.
