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.

Check-in Chaos

Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site
I love this site and have previously rated it 5* and the site itself still deserves that. Usually I arrive early afternoon. This occasion I left Cartmel Races 11am, so was looking for details of earliest arrival time. A trawl of booking confirmation and app booking info suggested 12 noon, the usual check-in time. I waited in a lay-by until midday, then drove onto site. Reception was shut, until 1pm, and other units were already queuing waiting to get on site. The next hour was chaos with units arriving and blocking access, units were unable to leave, and eventually the queue blocked both local static caravan access, hotel access, then the public road. Rather than hoping new arrivals manage to find the new arrival time of 1pm - why not simply keep the universal arrival time of noon, but ask departing units to leave by 11am? Problem solved.

Not returning

Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site
Arrived day of football final not that I am a football fan but supporting England. Everything ok with check in went on a pitch opposite play park nice pitch but under trees. There proceeded to be rain all night and it was like someone throwing stones on roof. The next morning people were leaving so we decided to move. As being a motorhome and having a tow car I went up to see the wardens but it was closed. We saw a pitch which had no one on it no signs, cones indicating not to go on it so we pitched up. I looked for wardens eventually finding one we told him we had moved and he said he would change the key for us. We walked up to the office, his wife then said no you will have to move off I am saving it for someone who is disabled. I said there was no signs on it and she said I haven’t put it on yet. She then proceeded to shout this is why you should ask. I was taken back by her attitude and tried to explain I had but couldn’t find them. Can I add we didn’t move until 11 am I am sure she could have put a sign on it before this time. Anyway we will not be returning due to being spoke to like a child and shame on you caravan club for letting her.

Peaceful site, lovely welcome, excellent location.

Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site
Really enjoyed our visit. Wardens were really patient and welcoming. As expected some pitches better than others but all perfectly good. Lots of lovely visits to the local area. Grange Over Sands nearby is excellent and Leighton Moss well worth a visit.

Acceptable site with drawbacks

Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site
We have been to this site before and found the pitch choice poor, as expected, because of our late arrival on this popular site. On this latest occasion, our early 1.00 pm arrival ( as requested ) was stressful because of the queues that had already built up since noon. It was hectic and not relaxed in pitch choice. It was desperate, competitive stuff. No fault of the wardens who coped admirably with a difficult situation caused by time of arrival rule changes not fully appreciated by members ( new or long standing)? Who instigates these changes without realising the subsequent problems for wardens and other members? Maybe go back to all arriving at the nationally accepted noon slot. Not a good start for our 5 day stay but having pitched up we settled into a routine of enjoying the space and quiet atmosphere within the site. However the very odd, very large motorhome with loud music, no doubt due to the amplifying effect of door/cab speakers of their music systems, did spoil things. Maybe more people should help make these members aware of the problem they may be inadvertently causing. As always there is plenty to see and do in South Lakeland with walking, safe cycling and visiting numerous interesting places within a reasonable distance. Fellow members who were our neighbours with their friendly manner all added to the joy of being in this location but please get something done to sort out the confusion and pressure felt on arrival over the weekend period. On a note of hope for the future I understand that over the winter a fairly large number of diseased ash trees with die back will be felled. This can only help add more light to many areas which can suffer from deep shade for long parts of the day. Will we return? Of course we will as we have done before, but maybe with increased hesitancy.
