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 both bars 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.
Stuck for a last minute gift? We offer gift vouchers across all accommodation for any amount from £5.00 to £500.00. We can also email the voucher directly to either you or the recipient or send a copy the old fashioned way by post. Please contact reception on 017684 82239 or email us email@example.com for more details.
After years of extremely slow internet access due to our location we have recently installed satellite broadband to enable us to have a reliable and much speedier connection. It is not as fast as fiber-optic broadband but it has increased our speed from 0.01MB to around 5 or 6MB and it doesn't stop working for days on end. Wi-fi hot spots are available in both bars, in the bed and breakfast rooms and in the cottage. There is a small charge of £1.00 per hour to use the wi-fi as it is a lot more expensive to run than traditional broadband. We have so far been thrilled with the improvement!
We are open as normal on Thursday 20th December. The Inn and the campsite are then closed from Friday 21st December up to and including Christmas Day. We reopen at 12 noon on Boxing Day with a limited lunch menu, and will be serving a full dinner menu from 6pm until 9pm. We will be open as usual until New Year's Eve (limited lunch again), we close at 4pm, then only serve dinner to pre-booked guests. We open at 9am on New Year's Day. For any further information please give us a call on 017684 82239.
