Anybody know of a good place to stop for one night in grange over sands
Theres a CC site. I think its called Grange over sands
Is the CC site Meathop Fell Caravan Club Site, Grange-Over-Sands too expensive?
Yep ,just made sure i had this in the correct section ,yep i was right ,wildcamping
If you are as anoyed as I am at some of the CCs policies then camping there is Wildcamping!
Since I sign in on the home page I don't necessarily notice which section a post is in!
Sorry if I ruffled any feathers by suggesting anyone paid for a site.
No feathers ruffled no need to apologize ,not a member of CC so I'm not sure what you mean ,We are booked on a site Sat and Sun but want to go on Friday but cant get there until late Friday (work Commitments )So was thinking of a stop over for Friday night and get to the site early Sat,anybody help please.
If it is a free overnight you could try the Station carpark but be ready to move off early. I recently use the Gretna Green one and was comforted by the number of cameras watching over me.
If you are looking for some pub grub then it is worth asking if you can park overnight in their car park (before you confirm your meal booking!).
The road leading to Meathop fell cc site just off the dual carriageway has a few stoppable spots if I remember rightly. Or what about the road leading to Sizergh castle a few miles before. Lovely big (quiet) layby there.
In fact following on from ips's suggestion, there's the Strickland Arms, right next to the gates for Sizergh - they have a decent car park & there's a sigh that clearly says you can leave your car overnight, so I would think if you asked them there wouldn't be a problem with the van - the beer in there is ace too :thumb:
Or, instead of turning on to the A590 up to Sizergh, take the B road turnoff to Sedgwick. Couple of very quiet lay-bys and the opportunity to watch the salmon jumping up the weir! Also lovely walks through Levens Park Estate, dogs welcome on lead, lots of wildlife - buzzards, deer, Bagot goats, the occasional fox..............
Usually cc sites have a late arrivals pitch or two outside the gate, with EHU if required for overnighting. Most have 2 or 3.
