We came to Side Farm after walking from Rosthwaite to Patterdale, via a lunch stop in Grasmere, in one very hard, long day. Carrying huge backpacks, we were a little disheartened upon arriving in Patterdale to realise we had another 20 minute walk up to the campsite (out of the village, meaning we had to add this on the next day, too, if we wanted to get to the shop in the morning). Beautiful site but not great for Coast to Coasting and I think this could have been made a bit clearer to me when I phoned, twice, for details! Not cheap, either. However, it is beautiful, and the facilities were fine.
