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.

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.

Another excellent stay

As other reviewers have said this is an excellently laid out site with the best toilet block facilities we've encountered, CAMC - can all the shower cubicles have the same set up moving forward, immense improvement on a curtain and plastic chair for trying to keep an area dry-ish within a shower cubicle. Easy access to a vast area of the southern Lakes with plenty of places of interest near by. Note some of the pitches have quite a slope on them but all are laid out well. This was our fourth visit and won't be our last.

Another great stay

Just back from a week here at Meathop. Another lovely stay. Well kept & peaceful & quiet site. Lovely wardens. Some pitches are a little slopey but some also have stunning views. Shower/toilet facilities are immaculate. It's situated in a great location for getting around the South Lakes. This time my parents came with us & stayed in one of the apartments on site. They stayed in the Silverdale & It was a lovely & very spacious with stunning views across Morecombe Bay. The Woodlands hotel is a short walk & does lovely food or if you just fancy a drink you are made to feel very welcome. Will definitely be returning in the future.

Excellent lakes site.

Just coming to the end of our 7 night stay , excellent well kept peaceful site within easy reach of the southern lakes area & Arnside , within easy reach of the M6. Numerous places to visit & some extremely quaint villages /towns nearby , we found a really good garden centre at Beetham with cafe serving excellent food. Enjoyed a great visit to Levens Hall & Gardens today & the weather was glorious after yesterday's gloomy day with rain. All in all a well worth visit to a great site , spotlessly clean showers/toilets block & superb wardens. Please note some of the pitches are quite quirky.... but that adds to the individuality of this lovely site established in the grounds of a former TB hospital.
