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 campsite is an ideal base to launch your exploration of Cumbria 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 campsite 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.

Additional ways to stay:

Cottages - there are two 2-bedroom holiday cottages and four apartments available to rent on this site. Visit camc.com/meathopfellcottage.

Probably the best site we have been on!

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
We have been Caravaners for decades but have had a decade off caravaning until we bought a small folding Gobur caravan last July. Since then we have been to a few CL's which have all been good but visiting our son and family 300 miles away we decided to try a full CAMC site and chose Meathop Fell. We arrived at about 4pm and although the access roads were very narrow we had no problems gtting there. Good signing to a parking arrivals reserved spot. Friendly welcome and we had a map to explain the layout. We were invited to tour the site by car but chose to do it on foot and selected a hardstanding with awning pitch which was well laid out and very tidy indeed. Toilets and showers were some of the best we have ever seen for layout and cleanliness. It was May and we had wonderful weather as well for the week we were there. Bins were emptied daily. Grass was cut more often than my home lawn and looked a lot better as well. No railways, roads or other sources of unwanted noise either. Next time we visit our son and family in Cumbria I don't think we will try to look at another site, I don't think we could find a better one (but don't tell anyone!!!!).

Overnight Stay

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
An obviously kid friendly site - with lots of children on their bikes ( nice to see them enjoying themselves). A lovely dog enclosed run. Good shower and clean toilet facilities would stay again.

Lovely peaceful site

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
Fantastic site in a lovely peaceful place. Facilities are excellent, very clean and lots of showers and private cubicles. The welcome was warm and friendly, and really helpful. Close by the Woodlands Hotel serves good food and there is a great Pizza Van onsite at weekends. We are new to Campervans and still have a lot to learn - we were made to feel very welcome. I would highly recommend the site.

Nice clean, tidy, quiet site.

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
I had a very enjoyable 2 night stay in January 2024. The site is spacious, clean, tidy and quiet. I was very lucky with dry, sunny (ish) weather so did a couple of nice walks to Meathop Moss, and Grange over Sands. A bit remote though if you don't like walking too far. My pitch was flat and spacious with plenty of manoeuvring room. Nice view too. Fresh water and waste facilities were very close so no complaints. I did notice some of the pitches were on quite a slope though. Will be visiting again.

A cosy retreat

Meathop Fell Club Campsite
This was our first time at a clubsite and was very impressed with how clean and tidy it was. As we came out of season, it was nice and peaceful too. We had fantastic cold dry weather, stunning views from our caravan pitch. Very scenic. The showers and toilets were very clean and nice hot showers. Really liked the dog walking areas and the information hub. Lots of choices to visit, although not all open at this time of year. Will definitely come here again and will come when it's warmer and bring our bikes.
