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.

4 day trip in winter

Just spent 4 days in the wake of storm Denis. Although the weather was poor, the site is fantastic for a stay in southern lakes. Great reception when we got there and plenty of very large pitches to choose from. We chose pitch 42 as it had great views across the valley. The shower and toilet block are the best we have seen at any site. Immaculately clean and perfectly kept. A credit to the hard work the wardens didn’t. Their is a great hotel 5 mins walk that serve great food. We took our westie who was greeted into the bar area. We will go back, hopefully with better weather, although the rain didn’t detract from what is a great run, clean site. Highly recommend

Great Base

Good site - as many have already described. Can have no-car days and walk into Grange [and beyond - to Humphrey Head]; or along the coastal path the other way. Outlying fells only 10 minutes away - eg park at Millside for Whitbarrow Fell. Wildlife around - deer in the woods; and owl hooting at night. Nice to be there at quiet time of year. Farm tea shop at Sizeburgh really good - great for children - can see the cows being milked - whilst you enjoy delicious homemade fayre.

Wonderful site

The staff are friendly and helpful. It is open in winter, including the shop. It takes very big motorhomes (like mine), and the motorhome waste area is easy to access. The facilities are great, the information room has everything you might need. The Wifi isn't free (it's the club Wifi) but was fast and worked perfectly the entire week I was there. And cheaper than most, so great value for money.

Best site ever

Been to this site a couple of times now and it just keeps getting better, lovely and peaceful with very helpful friendly staff. Only a couple of hours from home and when we left home it was blowing a gale and pouring down, so much so my wife was all for staying at home. After battling the weather to get there we discovered this site was very well sheltered to the point where we could still sit out in the awning that evening. A perfect peaceful sheltered gem of a site that is handy for motorway or lake district. My favourite site so far.
