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.

Lovely break

We;'ve recently returned from a lovekly weekend at Meathop Fell. It was out first visit to the site and we arrived when it was dark, so couldn't really pick out a site for the view. However, we were told that if we wanted to move pitch the following morning once we'd had a walk around in daylight we could do, which I thought was fair enough. However, as we were only there for 2 nights we decided to stay where we were. We ate evening meal at the nearby hotel which was very good. We walked into Grange over Sands and back on the Saturday and had a wonder around (not been there since I was a small child). All in all it was a very pleasant weekend.

Autumn Break

Another enjoyable return visit. Site continues to suffer from pitiful wifi notwithstanding usual Club's tariff being applied. Too many members still ignore on site speed limit. Wardens efforts to maintain a high standard of cleanliness are spoilt by members who consider it is acceptable to take non guide dogs inside washroom facilities. On balance the site is good and well worth a visit.

Short Break

Once again we have had a lovely break at this site. It is set in an area of outstanding beauty with lots to see and do without going to far afield. Only negavtives are the speeding which we witnessed. There are signs up all over the site requesting that people drive at 5mp and once again people were totally ignoring this. It is totally unacceptable and something does need to be done about this before someone is badly hurt. The only other thing I would say is that this site is at the end of a narrow lane with a steep incline and we witnessed three caravans arrived well before the 12. o clock arrival time, this would certainly cause problems for people leaving the site with their caravan. But moan over this site is well worth a visit and we will certainly be returning again in the future.

A car park

Have been waiting to come here for a long time. Been to all other sites in Lake district and most are ok - to very good. Was very disappointed here as I thought most of the site is a car park and a lot of unlevel pitches. No dog walk. Wi Fi Bring back Wells Fargo it would be quicker Stayed for two nights on way back from Scotland. Will not stay again.
