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.

Needs Improvement

Good points Woodlands Hotel is a 5 minute walk and offers good food and drink Sheltered location from wind because of surrounding woods Most pitches are level and good quality Staff are very friendly Dog run is small but dogs can be let allowed off a lead Good beach for dogs and cafe at Walney Island at Barrow but 45 minutes drive away Nice towns to look around Ulverston and Kendal TV cable on mains bollard but interference on reception probably caused by water in cable Bad Points Water pressure is poor be prepared to wait. Water supply to chemical toilet was leaking and stewards did repair it during fortnight we were there Not many public paths outside site although there are lots of woods No information in information hut presumably because of virus Grange has no beach for humans or dogs and can be dangerous with quicksands Site reception does not have a shop so no basic foods or papers

Nice site but impossible to sleep

We Arrived at Meathop Fell after a long drive from Bunree Booking in was easy with helpful staff Meathop Fell is a well layed out site with a variety of pitches with good well maintained facilities There’s a nice cycle ride into Grange over sands Unfortunately we was pitched next to a couple with two dogs that they left in their van at 7pm to go out for the evening We was ready to retire for the night by 10pm after our long drive but the dogs that had been left in the van next to us were barking non stop making it impossible to sleep By 11pm still no return of the people and dogs still continue to bark non stop myself and others Couldn’t sleep and went outside but there was nothing we could do but wait for them to get back The couple eventually returned at 11.50pm I told them it was unreasonable for them to leave dogs alone like that They left at 7.30 the next morning before anything else could be said This is not the sort of night you expect to have to put up with

We have recently returned home after a weeks stay. We were recommended this site by friends, and have had a fantastic week inspite of the weather. The site itself is extremely well maintained, and the wardens are very friendly, and very organised as far as the recent Covid guidelines are concerned. This is our 3rd visit to a club site following the re-opening of our sites, and it is by far our best experience. On this site common sense prevails thank goodness, consequently the “elastic band” system works well, obviously there was the odd occasion where the wrong band was retrieved, or the band was left on the peg by mistake! The facilities were spotless and cleaned twice daily. Meathop Fell is ideally placed for exploring the Lakes, or going South to walk on Morecambe’s extensive Promenade. We will certainly return in the not too distant future.

Excellent first time experience

We stayed here for three days after the bank holiday and really enjoyed our visit. As first time caravanners with young children we were slightly nervous but there was a good selection of pitches, clear signposts upon arrival and the receptionist was very friendly and directed us to the easiest pitches to try. We were told we were welcome to drive round and select the one we wanted. Having done this we settled in. The facilities were spotless with reduced usage (no more than 6 guests at once) and twice daily cleaning. Site was quite busy but not noisy at all. Good distance from Grange over Sands and Windermere. Would highly recommend this site.

Excellent Bank Holiday Weekend

Brilliant weekend at Meathop Fell Club Site can’t fault this site stayed on numerous occasions at this site. The facilities were up to usual standard and the band system that was in operation worked well we didn’t have to queue once to use showers. Pitch was great over looking estuary glad we had a pickup to get us on a grass pitch. Definitely will be returning before end of season.
