This was another 2-night weekend camping trip that we booked just a few days before. The site, close to Penistone is around an hour away from home so was close enough that we could pack the van and head off after a full day’s work and still arrive in time to setup camp before dark. This site is small. Really small. We drove straight past it (twice) when we first arrived. The only giveaway is an Orchard Camping banner tied to the wall next to the gate, but that was obscured by a camper’s car when we arrived.

For our longest camping trip of the year we ventured West into Cumbria and the Lake District to Sykeside Camp Site. The site itself is hidden away in a dip and situated behind the Brotherswater Inn pub off the A592. The drive to the site takes you over a high pass with great views but your passengers may spend a lot of the journey with their eyes tightly closed as there are some steep drops just off to the side of the road in parts. In fact, we pulled over in a small car park just before the road descends down to the campsite for a quick photo opportunity to take in the views down the valley to the body of water that is Brotherswater.
