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.

Meathop

Lovely peaceful site. Friendly staff and facilities always clean and tidy. Busy site but lots of toilets, washrooms and showers etc. Cycling nearby on quiet roads. However lacking in public transport. Plenty of places to visit but being motorhomers we like to use public transport if available. We had difficulty finding site entrance from main road as the sign mentioned a Woodlands hotel and restaurant and we did not see a caravan and motorhome sign.

Great site

First time at this site and what a lovely place to relax. The promenade in Grange-over-Sands is great and the butchers and local bakery are a must when in the town. The layout and toilet blocks are of high standard and some great views around the site. My only concern is the lack of attention from the wardens with people playing with footballs around the pitches and others not sticking to the CAMC policy when positioning the caravans, a simple walk around to check would of brought this to there attention. Overall a great site and would definitely recommend this site.

I can’t share this diamond site 😮

We booked a last minute cancellation and OMG did we strike lucky. Fab wardens, beautiful location and facilities and basically with the Easter sun it’s perfect. Grange over sands only a short drive away with the beautiful Harrington’s butchers, and a superb bakery. Visit Cartmel wowzer. This place is Our 101 site since 2010 and bring it on 👍xx

Lovely site, peaceful and scenic.

Booked two nights here for two motorhomes, as we were travelling with friends. We phoned in the morning to book and the warden was most accommodating, both on the phone and when we arrived, even though we were later than planned. We had a choice of pitches and had a lovely view from the window of the bay in the distance and surrounding hills. The site is spotlessly clean, very well maintained and has everything you need for a restful break. The shower and toilet blocks are warm and clean and smelt really nice. The launderette was easy to use and efficient. We would definitely recommend to others and return ourselves if in the area again. The Woodlands hotel is 5 minute walk and served a nice evening meal and welcomed dogs in the bar area.

Return Visit

We first visited this site over 25 years ago. We liked it then and still like it now. We visit perhaps twice a year. This was our first trip out this year and again we were looking forward to the stay. As always the wardens were friendly and helpful but I have to say that we were disappointed that the shop no longer offers newspapers nor do they have the mobile chippy anymore!! The facilities were again spotless but I have to say they are again looking a little bit dated and the water pressure in the showers was poor. The television signal at this site has been poor for many years and the booster system is as much use as a chocolate fireguard! Come on club, please do something about this Having said all that we enjoyed our stay, in particular a visit to the new boat museum at the side of Lake Windermere. The trip on the steam launch was excellent. We will be returning to the site later in the year as it is in such a fantastic location
