COVID-19 Update 27th February 2021

Staged Reopening Spring 2021

12th April – Open to tents, motorhome and caravans that have their own facilities. An outside tap and chemical loo disposal point will be available but the toilets, showers, laundry room, pot wash and all indoors areas will remain closed. Only single households may share a unit and the ‘rule of 6’ will apply outside. The Brotherswater Inn may open outside only; this will depend on the weather and level of demand. The campsite shop and reception will be open daily.

17th May – All indoor accommodation including the bunkhouse and bed and breakfast should reopen, as should the campsite facilities. The Brotherswater Inn should be able to accept customers indoors. There will still be limits on households mixing indoors, social distancing and table service only.

21st June – All legal restrictions on social contact lifted.

All of the above could change if the government’s four conditions for lifting lockdown are not met. The ‘roadmap out of lockdown’ is available to view at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-response-spring-2021/covid-19-response-spring-2021-summary

We are waiting for much more detailed guidelines concerning groups mixing from the 17th May, and exactly how The Brotherswater Inn will be allowed to operate. It may be a few weeks before these are issued by the government; we will update our website and social media etc. when we know more.

We have had an extremely busy week; it’s great to see how enthusiastic everyone is! Thank you very much everyone for your patience and understanding. We believe we have moved, credited or refunded any bookings that have to be cancelled as they fall before the 12th April or 17th May. If you haven’t heard from us and are concerned please get in touch via email info@sykeside.co.uk


Lake District Camping and Pub

In the heart of the Dovedale Valley, surrounded by Dove Crag, Hart Crag and Fairfield with Brotherswater nearby, Sykeside is an inspiring location for Lake District camping, offering stunning views wherever you pitch.

We are the perfect spot for walking, whether you fancy a short stroll around Brotherswater or a full day's hike up High Street, as many footpaths leave right from our doorstep. Our central location makes us ideal for exploring the Lake District and Cumbria, whether it be on foot or by car. Alternatively, for those who wish to relax, why not sample a pint or two of local ale at the Brotherswater Inn whilst enjoying the stunning views of Dove Crag.

For brave campers we are open all year round (with the exception of the Christmas period) in all weathers, so why not join us for a spot of ice-climbing or winter walking, or perhaps just relaxing by the fire in the pub!

We are dog friendly, so anyone with four legs is very welcome in the bunkhouse, on the campsite, in the bar and resturant and in the shop. We do, however, ask that dogs are kept on a lead and under control as the local sheep and deer are a little more nervous than ourselves.
