Sykeside Camping Park


Sykeside Camping Park is located in the heart of the Dovedale Valley. It is surrounded by Dove Crag, Hart Crag and Fairfield. Nearby is Brotherswater, making the park an inspiring location for Lake District camping. There are great views from whichever pitch you choose at Sykeside Camping Park.

The park is carefully laid out in order to blend in with the amazing surroundings and to provide a wide variety of location to camp across the site. Sykeside’s aim is to keep a very natural place. The owners pride themselves on their park’s real outdoor feel.

• meals are available on the site at the Barn End Bar

• Brotherswater Inn, within the site grounds, offers meals and accommodation

• please note that due to our position in the bottom of the valley television reception is extremely unreliable, and there is no mobile phone reception at all.

Members of the Caravan Club have the luxury of experiencing Sykeside from the comfort of their own caravan.

Sykeside Camping Park is open all year round. They offer 5 hard standings on their site that all feature electric hook-ups. They are situated in a secluded area of the park but are still near all of the facilities. Just 200 yards away is the Brotherswater Inn.

Brotherswater Inn is a welcoming Lake District pub that offers bar food and accommodation.
