Reviewer: Steve+Lin 3 reviews from this member

Very nice site, staff very helpful. Good food both at the pub and campsite bar. Trip to site tested our nerve and the car and trailer brakes as it was twisty down to the site.
Plenty of space on our hard standing to put trailer where we wanted. The only down side was that there are only a couple of water taps and these are up by the toilet block and only one waste point with on real flush only a hose.
Campsite is more set up for tents and overnight tourers. The campsite is not suitable the disabled due to very steep paths.

Whilst the site is beautiful, with good facilities and a nice pub, we had to leave after one night due to the entire site being waterlogged. I know that the rain was unusually heavy, but surely this isn't the first time the Lake District has experienced this

Stayed here in 2009, definitely planning it for this year as well. Other reviews sum it up really. A beautiful area of the Lakes, what we call 'the real Lakes'. Showers and toilets very clean (so they must be, in accordance with my standards), although at peak times the water is more luke warm than hot, so try to get there early!. Pitches good, the site I remember was quiet and everyone friendly. Shop well-stocked, friendly staff. The Brotherswater Inn (who do own the site), great, standard pub food at standard Lake District prices (2-3 on top of prices, not much of an issue). Staff keep the site very clean we noticed. We look forward to returning

Stayed one very wet night after climbing Helvellyn en route to Windermere.

Site was clean and organised. Facilities were plentiful (no queues for toilets or showers even on a Saturday night) and well maintained.

Staff were polite and helpful, even down to giving advice on routes and the surrounding area.

Barn End Bar on site very friendly, food reasonably priced and a fairly short wait for food despite the site being full.

Large drying area and washing up room inside.

Location was great, between stunning mountains and easily reachable from surrounding areas on foot.

This site is simply fantastic. If you like the lake district and want a good base for excellent walks this is the place, the campsite is surrounded by what can only be described as spectacular scenery, no matter which way you turn you are rewarded with breathtaking views. I wanted to start this review with what this site is all about but that is not all this site has to offer.
The pitches are flat, there is a ball/playing field and the brotherswater lake is close at hand. We ate at the barn end bar located on site and had no complaints and thought the prices reasonable. We ventured down to Ullswater and did some river walking then hired some rowing boats which the kids thought was fantastic.
Overall this is one of my favourite sites in the lakes, it did get very busy so booking is a must and there is a no noise policy at 11. We were reminded of this at check in and it was adhered to. Highly recommended and I will visit again. Hope you have more luck than I did on badger watch, never saw a single one!
One down side is the cost, we paid 58 for 3adults 2children for two nights, most expensive I've come across but the views more than make up for this.

We stayed here for the weekend while climbing Helvellyn. Although site was full we never had to queue for toilets and showers. The wardens were really friendly and helpful and Chris, in particular, was great. The views from the site are amazing and we will definitely be returning soon.

Well what can I say, we had made a booking and the deposit was paid, my 5 year old daughter was really excited. We then made a second booking on in the morning for our friends (2 people), again everything was confirmed by the campsite.

When we arrive they told us they couldn't accept us and had to cancel our booking as our group was too big, in my opinion 5 adults and 1 child in one tent and 2 adults in a separate tent should not have caused a problem - but it did. So we left the campsite with a very upset 5 year old, who thought we might have to go home and she was going to miss out on her camping weekend.

I decided to take the folding camper for its first outing. I only wanted to go for a weekend so I used the new search feature to look for sites in the Lake District. This campsite ticked all the boxes :) Open all year, pub on site, serves food, not too far from me.

I can only echo what has been said in the reviews below. Great site! The drive to it was spectacular, views from the site were stunning, staff were friendly, beer was spot on and the food was too! Good bit was dogs are allowed in the pub, which made for good entertainment when one of those Yorkshire terriers decided to have a go at a bigger dog! LOL. All in all a nice relaxing weekend :)

2nd visit to this site and even though this visit was in feb it was just as good as last Summer.

We checked in at the Brotherwater Inn as the shop was closed till Easter. The staff are very friendly and even though we turned up a day early they were very accommodating. They informed us the site was still a bit waterlogged so advised us where to pitch and gave us information on some of the rules.

The shower block and loo's were spotless and plenty of hot water, one of the perks of going 'Off Season'.

Once we had pitched we went back to the pub, there are local beers on draught and a good selection of lagers and cider. We didn't eat but looked at the menu, not much for vegetarian's but a few specials and quite good choice for everyone else.

The site as an area put aside for walking your dog which is quite large and allows you to let your dog of the lead but not escape too far.

The site as a driveway all the way round so even though the weather was poor you never got your car stuck.

The views from anywhere on site are stunning, looking up you can see mountain peaks from all directions, the wildlife is great, the tree's on site are home to numerous species of birds, a welcoming sound first thing in the morning.

You are only three miles from Patterdale and Glenriding where you can enjoy a trip on the Ullswater Steamer or try and pick up a bargain at the Hiking/camping shop which is very well stocked incase you manage to forget something.

I'm sure we'll be visiting this site again in the near future.

Reviewer: Agent006 4 reviews from this member

Important thing to note for motorhome owners, not all pitches have electric hookup as default!

A small site with good facilities. Two pubs on site, with the Brotherswater Inn being very good.

Drainage can be a problem as it's in the bottom of the valley, but the van/home pitches are at field edges so quite dry. If you drive a larger motorhome you will have fun getting onto some of the pitches as the access tracks are quite narrow. I had to disregard the request to not put wheels on the grass briefly.

Showers and toilets are clean and warm. Never had a problem with hot water supply. Though you will need to take a bag for your clothes as the shower sprays the entire cubicle.

13 a night in January for no hookup was too expensive in my mind.
