We, ve been visiting this site now for nearly 20 years, probably one of the best locations for a campsite surrounded by fantastic veiws and fells. If you like your fell walking there are tons of good walks from the site.

The pub is great with good beers and decent food and the staff are always friendly and pleasant. But one thing we have noticed over the years is the lack of investment in the site, the showers and toilets are very old and tired, some locks on the cubicles don't work and one on our last visit was dropping off. The showers are small and its very difficult to keep your clothes on the back of the door dry, Showers are initially warm, then hot enough to take your skin off then luke warm again, which is usualy where the tempreture stays. The chemical toilet disposal has seen better days and is a bit out of date.

All in all we love the site because of the location and friendly people (and the pub!), facilities on other sites have moved on in quality in the last few years so please spend a bit on updating the facilities.

We spent two nights at Sykeside just before New Year.

As always, friendly welcome, great pub and good facilities.

The site is very secluded but there is lots of excellent walking in the area.

Will certainly return.

This is a brilliant campsite.

Located in one of the most picturesque spots in the Lakes.

Access to classic walks available from the site.

The pub is good, with good selection of beers and decent food.

Always a friendly welcome!

This was a lovely, well spread out campsite in the valley of surrounding beautiful Lake District hills. The drive to get there was something else though! winding, very narrow roads! If you like hillwalking, you'd love this place. Unfortunately I don't and neither did the lots of kids that were dragged there by their parents. They hung out in the toilet block to chat for something to do. The showers had VERY short timings once you pressed the button. I have long hair and normally need to wash it twice before applying conditioner. I couldn't do that as I got so frustrated with the button pushing. You had to pay for Internet by the hour in the Brotherswater Inn at the back of the site. 1 per hour. I was a godsend though as there was nothing else to do here when the weather was bad and it was, even though it was fine outside of the surrounding hills! Thank goodness for the delicious food and hospitality of the Brotherswater Inn! There were no lights around the site at night so it made finding the toilet block a bit difficult. The washing machine and tumble dryer are used with tokens from the shop. 3 for a wash and 1 for half hour tumble dryer but they are excellent commercial ones. Oh my son complained that there was no hairdryer in the mens toilet. Men have vain needs too!

Stayed here for a long weekend, it was the first time we had stayed on the site although had eaten at the brotherswater arms last year. Very impressed with the site and as we arrived at lunchtime could choose almost anywhere on the site. We found the ground very flat and did use as recommended hard ground pegs.

The toilet/shower block was very clean and showers nice and hot and free! They are closed between 12 and 14. 00hrs but you could use the toilets in the pub which is a short walk away. There are no electric hook ups for tent users which we were unsure about but if was great fun going back to basics! The staff were very helpful and we really enjoyed the quiz at the bar/clubroom on the Saturday night.

There are so many walks from the campsite which was fab and we really enjoyed our climb up middle dodd and then dove crag including the priesthole as well. Will definitely use the site again.

Stunning location amongst the Lake District fells; ideal for hill walking.

Large level grassy area available for tents. Limited parking as a large part of the camping ground had been cordoned off as the ground was too wet to drive on. There are also some terraces that have been dug out of a slope; suitable for smaller tents only. I chose one of the terraces; a good level pitch with a fine view across the rest of the site to the hills beyond.

Facilities are fine.

The nearby Brotherswater Inn is welcoming, dog AND child friendly, has good beer and food, and an enormous wood burning stove; very welcome on a frosty February evening after a day on the hills.

This was our second visit to Sykeside recently, this time as part of a Lake District tour for New Year.

As always, excellent service, great facilities and excellent walking from the site.

Great site!

We've stayed at Brotherswater a number of times. It has to be one of the best sites in the Lakes.

Warm welcome, excellent pitches and good facilities. Pub serves excellent beer and good food. Handy on site shop in season.

Stunning surrounding, with some of the best walking available in the Lakes right from the site!

Stayed in a glamping pod here, such a lovely area! Loads of great walks, and the villages near by were just stunning! Everyone was v friendly, and the pub was super handy to stop off for a couple drinks! However, the field does flood pretty badly in bad weather, most of the tent campers left because of it! Cant say I blame them though!

Fantastic location. Immediate access to some great walks. Excellent pub and shop on site with very friendly staff. Beware, some parts of the field flood during heavy rains! Excellent breakfast served at the pub!
