Why stay here ...

Peaceful Meathop Fell Club Campsite 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.

A surprisingly lovely area and fabulous site with far reaching views

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
Meathop Fell CAMC Here for 4 nights in May 2022 Lovely site on different levels with a mixture of grass and hand standing pitches. A few trees so a mix of sun and shade too. The grass pitches are pretty dry as it’s quite rocky beneath the surface. There are about a dozen pitches with views, both at the top and bottom of the site and around the edge of the dog field. There are a lot of non awning pitches: some of these are on tarmac. Fabulous views from grass pitches next to the Dog field. We were lucky enough to get one- pitch 58 so parked nose in to make the most of the views. The dog field is massive with fabulous views on a clear day. We needed levelling blocks as a lot of the grass pitches weren’t level. First evening had a lovely walk along the 1 mile promenade in Grange. It was very quiet with lovely views over the estuary. You could walk to Grange from the site but it’s along a quiet country road rather than footpaths. There is a footpath to the nearby pretty village of Lindale which has a pub, the Royal Oak. We didn’t have time to try it unfortunately. Took the 5 min train ride to Arnside over the estuary and walked for about 5 miles around and over Arnside Knott. This is national trust land and dogs can be mostly off lead which my dog loved after a lot of walks on lead through fields of sheep. Found a great cafe, Sandpipers as we walked back towards the station. Great coffee and cakes( incl gluten free) and dog friendly. Visited Cartmel ( can recommend Cartmel Coffee in the square) with its interesting little shops and did a circular walk to Cark. As we passed the Holker estate we stopped there for a delicious lunch at their Courtyard cafe. You can also walk in the deer park for free, with dogs on leads. We liked this site more than we expected and also loved Grange over Sands. There were some nice cafes in Grange that we didn’t have time to try.

One of the Best

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
Wonderful break at this glorious site set in stunning countryside with view across Morecambe Bay. The site has to be one of the best maintained on the network, grounds and facilities immaculate thanks to the magnificent wardens who work very hard and also go out of their way to give you a lovely stay. Good WiFi but struggled with TV reception even on the hook up with limited channels and signal break up. We were on a service pitch which was large and level. Plenty to do in the surrounding area, just wish we had booked for longer. Steam trains, boat rides, walking, museums and some beautiful villages and landscapes. Definitely come back for longer next time.

Clean, peaceful and near to things to do.

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
Very enjoyable holiday. The campsite is neat and tidy, also peaceful. I like the area we were in which was for smaller vans which attracts older , quieter people. The water station was easily accessible and always tidy. The size of the pitch was generous. The wardens were helpful and available. I like the 1pm arrival time too.

Excellent

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
Arrived meathop fell for the first visit ever. Very friendly lady warden booked us in. It’s along time since I’ve seen a club site that is as beautiful and well looked after. Love all the quirky features. The mushrooms the lights round trees. Every little section of the site was so well landscaped and the dedication of maintaining it is visible everywhere. Toilets immaculate and showers with plenty hot water. Pizza van on site at weekend and lovely meals at the hotel 10 mins from site. Grange over sand is lovely with a lovely promenade to walk. Lots of cycling routs. Best ever club site ever. Only one downside is caravaners are needing to learn etiquette and don’t cut across someone’s pitch. Sitting in van and their strolling passed the windows taking short cuts. . Would return to this site.

Perfect for South Lakes

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
Great site easy to find in good location. Some pitches slope front to back and side so blocks may be needed. The wardens we met were great and very helpful. Both the site and the block were spotless. Hotel with public bar close by which we used for drinks one day and was ideal. The walk to Grange was along a very quiet road (2 miles?) and well worth it a lovely small town with an excellent promenade. Handy for driving to Windermere, Coniston etc. and the local Steam railway a good attraction. Definitely will return soon but will stay for a week this time.
