Alan Rogers Review

This small touring park is located in a really beautiful, quiet spot in the northern Lakes area, just 400 yards from Brotherswater. With views up the Dovedale valley, the park has 100 tent pitches in the valley floor, in addition to 24 hardstanding pitches for caravans and motorhomes, all with 10A electricity. Tent pitches are not marked and campers arrange themselves to best enjoy the superb views. The stone-built building, an original barn, near the entrance houses all the facilities. These include the Barn End bar, which serves drinks on Fridays and Saturdays.

The site is surrounded by the fells and is ideal for active outdoor holidays with walking or climbing on the high hills.


The toilet block includes hot showers. A chemical disposal point is available. Small launderette and dishwashing room. Self-service shop with camping equipment, gas and an ice-pack service, doubles as reception. Bunkhouse accommodation for 36 persons in various groups. Fishing nearby. WiFi over part of site (charged).

From M6 exit 40 take A66 towards Keswick. At first roundabout take A592 and follow signs for Ullswater and Glenridding, continue to Brotherswater and Sykeside is on the right of the A592. The entrance is just behind the Brotherswater Inn.
