Side Farm camp site has two major attractions, the location and the views! Otherwise it is fairly grim. It is a real shame as this site could be a real gem if only it was give a touch of care and attention. This is not by any means a complaint as I have just had three amazing days with two... More

Found this place online. Situated on Lake Ulswater which you can access directly from the camp site. Fantastic views and the weather really made it for us. The facilities were very basic but it's camping so nobody should expect the ritz. The field was not flat but that was half the fun. The views if the lake and all other... More

Great little hidden treasure for campers. Good location and within a stones through of lake. Really upsetting to see green/lime lines in the grout in the gents showers and the floors were truly minging. Really needs a deep clean in the ablutions. As for the camping, well if your expecting some flat level ground then don't visit side farm.

This site blew me away, such a perfect location of the views of the area and the Lake, such beauty surrounds you. Toilet and shower facilities where available, as well as washing and drying machines and a pot wash area. What the hell more could you ask for? The price was right, the shops arnt far away and there's a... More

Very nice place with beautiful view from tent or camper. There is small building with toilets and showers, area for dish cleaning (include in campsite price). Also you will washing machines and dryers, but this will cost you extra money. Few miles from campsite is small village Glenridding where you will find pubs, shops, hotels and attractions like Ullswater Steamers,... More

We stopped here with a medical problem. The farmers could not have been more genuinely helpful and kind. It's such a treat to come across this type of human kindness in an age of dreadful public service. Also, the cakes are great!

This was the first time I went camping, this campsite is fantastic. The views are stunning, and access to the lake is great. Facilities are just what you need, you're camping. .. you don't expect hotel standard bathrooms. Yes the road is a little bumpy on the way up to the site but that's the fun of it! Our 10... More

Stayed here over the August bank holiday weekend and had a great time. Really central for a lot of walks including the Lakeland classic, Striding Edge. Whilst the track is a bit rutty, I managed to get my 350Z all the way from the farm yard to the far side of the campsite just by driving sensibly. Lovely hot showers... More
