What a fantastic site. It caters for those with children and those that are after a quiet holiday. As you enter the site, the playground is to the right and the quieter part of the site to the left.

The facilities are the best I have experienced on a caravan club site.

The approach lane is very uneven so please drive very slowly. As pointed out by the previous reviewer, at the bottom of the lane you encounter a single lane hill for about 50m. Take it wide at the bottom so that if anything is coming down they have enough room to pass. There is also another small single lane hill to the site.

I do not agree with the previous reviewer re dog walks. There is no where to let your dog off the lead to have a run. You can only walk up and down the lanes and the lane into grange can be very busy so you need to be in your guard.

Wardens on site are very friendly and are always available to assist you.

The site was exactly as described on the website. Easy to find, although a narrow road to get to the site and also quite a steep incline just before the entrance. Check in was simple and fast and the warden was extremely helpful and friendly. The directions around the site were great and the pitches were well spaced in little cluster. The pitches with hard standing were well spaced just a note, bring a hammer as the hard standing lives up to it's name (I bent several pegs and my rubber mallet didn't work as well)The play area was really good for the children and secure also in good condition and the kids had hours of fun there. The toilet block was fantastic, spotlessly clean, warm and all with individual cubicle for sinks so nice and private. The laundry and washing up area were great too. The site shop was small but well stocked with all essentials you could want from milk, bread, bacon, tinned goods. And a great selection of ice cream!

About 10 minutes drive to Grange over Sand (strange name as we couldn't find the sand). It was beautiful little village with a Co-op supermarket, a lovely fruit & veg store next to the Co-op, a Chemist, and a Spar. Plus lots of other type of shops to cover all your needs.

I would recommend this site to everyone, couples and families. Dogs are also welcome and there are some beautiful walks nearby for you and your dog. The scenery is breathtaking and this site just adds to the experience. Defiantly my favourite site so far, we will be back soon.

This site is ideally placed to visit both coniston and Windermere. The directions are spot on however the approach road has aken a beating very large dips and bumps so take care. Site is spot less. Toilet block excellent but for some reason club sites insist on keys to the toilet blocks which I find a pain there are no footpaths through the site so no chance of anyone not from the site using them. The site is split in two. Most younger families down by the park and those without children up the top. Pitches all of a good size with plenty of room between. The ground is very hard even after plenty of rain. Pitches are generally flat and van only required a little levelling. There is no dog walking enclosed area on site and the wooded area isn't great. The site shop orders bread and rolls from nearby bakers which was great plus newspapers, milk, eggs, bacon and other basics. We hired bikes at grizedale forest well worth a visit. We have had a great week here and would recommend for visiting the lakes.

Spent a wonderful Christmas here. Well laid out site with really good facilities.

Very friendly staff, we were invited for mince pies and drinks in the office on Christmas Eve.

Lovely pub next door with log fire, very seasonal. Good food and a warm welcome.

Quite a distance into Grange, but worth the drive (not really walkable)

Cooked Christmas dinner on the BBQ which was different. Altogether a most enjoyable Christmas.

Definitely recommended.

This was one of my favourite sites on my marathon Scottish /Lakes holiday. I stayed for one night before travelling back down the M6. I hadn't booked and they were very (genuinely) friendly and helpful and got me booked in even though it was after the office had closed. I met people who stayed there regularly who confirmed what a nice place it is.

The site is attractive, convenient for walking and visiting places of interest in the area. The toilets and showers look brand new and absolutely sparkling clean.

I called into Grange Over Sands on my way home and it is a very attractive friendly place. There was a gorgeous bakery at which I bought beautiful bread, a cake and a gift for a family member. It had an adjoining cafe and I bought a take away coffee which was really good.

Very enthusiastic about this site and have already made a decision to go back and stay for longer.

Stayed here for two nights on our way down south. Nice site with tremendous toilet facilities. Good pitches with room between them. Lots of mature trees so maybe would be a good idea to see which way the sun falls on a particular pitch before settling down. Site seemed quite busy for the time of year, however everybody was on hardstanding pitches and the grass pitches remained empty.

Good information room with lots of leaflets.

We had a day out to the little model village just outside Grange Over Sands and then went on to visit the Motor Museum which my husband loved, the museum had a great tearoom which served really decent food at good prices, would recommend this for a day out.

We would return to this site for a longer visit as there is so much to see in the area, however this would also be a great overnight stop site as it is so near the M6.

Straight forward drive, sat nav directions spot on. Very narrow long lane on the approach, lots of passing areas along the way. We arrived just after 12 along with everyone else it seemed. It was raining and all the tree free pitches had been taken. We managed to get on one of the few hard standing pitches left. There were several people who arrived after us who had to pitch on grass. Lots getting stuck and churning up the grass, what a mess, we felt sorry for the wardens who had to push and pull some caravans out of the mud as the pitches were vacated they were closed. This is the first site we have visited were there are awning and non awning pitches. What happens if people who have booked a no awning pitch, pitch on an awning pitch? The shower block was probably the best I have visited, plentiful and very new. Good phone and wifi signal (3 network)

Great base for getting around. Grange-over-sands is small, has a lovely park. Morecombe was wet and windy. Kendal very busy main street, lots and lots of shops. Visited Cartmel to get some sticky toffee pudding, called in the Cavendish arms (dog friendly) for lunch, lovely staff and very nice lunch. What a charming town even has its own racecourse. The finale to our week was a visit to Tarn Hows, absolutely stunning, the drive over was a little scary(very narrow roads) but definitely worth it.

Booking was easy enough, site is well sign posted and not too far off the A590, the access road is a bit steep in one place but not a problem.

The site itself is superbly organised, check-in was great and all the staff were amazing - helpful, chatty, friendly and interested !

The site was the best I've been on so far, clean, tidy throughout, nice pitches and a new amenities block which was clearly well looked after and very clean. Everything worked. There is a well thought out site shop thoughtfully stocked with everything you could reasonably want (the local bacon and sausages were great!)

Have no fear with this one - its a great site with great staff.

Reviewer: Moss the Boss 5 reviews from this member

Caravan Club site so second to none for facilities, cleanliness, pitches. However, Caravan Club site fees expensive and increasingly uncompetitive, especially in high season. No security barrier at this site so caravans need to be secured with a clamp. Road to the site is bumpy and narrow with a steep slope at the end. Important arrival and departure times are adhered to or problems if two caravans meet.

Nice area, it's The Lakes but don't forget the Morecambe Bay coast as well. Lovely walks nearby at Hampsfell, Humphrey Head, Whitbarrow, Cartmell & Grange Promenade with its views over to Arnside & across the bay.

Grange is a three mile drive with a Spar, Coop, Bargain Booze, chippy/take aways and banks.

Reviewer: Scoutabout 13 reviews from this member

Newly refurbished toilet block plenty of showers never had to wait. Very clean and well maintained site, wardens very helpful and pleasant. Pitches roomy, some require levelling blocks. Tv and mobile reception good. Play area near bottom of site.

Nice short walk to pub serving meals. Site shop sells basics and you can order papers. Good information hut with 2 phone booths. Local shops and small supermarket in Grange, room for motor homes in car parks.

A good base to explore the many nearby attractions, Low Sizbergh farm shop great for local produce and a meal, then a look around.

Only problem is approach road to caravan site, its narrow and people will insist on leaving after 12 and arriving early despite instructions not to.
