This site is located down a farm track and feels remote, it has the mountains behind and the lake in front making very picturesque. The facilities are fine but basic, and there is also a couple of washing machines and dryers on site if needed. It does get busy so it is worth arriving early so you can get a... More

I've camped here for a night with my husband. Beautiful sceneries. We chose to camp on the higher ground where the view was the best. However, the strong wind and the rain ruined it. I would have stayed here for few days if the weather was good. This campsite charges £10 each for a night.

We really enjoyed the cafe and the huge pieces of cake. They were very welcome after a good walk up Helvelyn. The staff were very friendly and helpful our dog was welcome and the man serving was so nice and chatty

Side farm campsite is located at the end of a rugged farm road, but this courageous journey is rewarded as you arrive at the campsite and are greeted by an awesome view of Ullswater and it's surrounding mountains. The facilities although rustic are more than adequate, with hot showers and clean toilets. I would recommend arriving early to secure yourself... More

I can't rate this hidden gem enough, we've just stayed for a third time and can't wait to return in a few weeks time. The owners are so friendly, the views are stunning and with lots to do close by this place is an ideal family friendly place to stay.

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
