We have just got a new camper van, best thing we've ever done. Had two great weekends camping in Northumberland. This bank holiday weekend we would like to head over to the lakes (we're in Newcastle) for couple of nights as weather looks more promising in the West.
Has anyone got any good recommendations for dog/child friendly sites (preferably with electric hook up but not essential) around Penrith/Ullswater or the northern sea of the lakes?
Already know about Pooley Bridge.

Sykeside at Brothers Water, so just beyond Ullswater to the South. Great location, with some fantastic fells straight from the campsite, from Dovedale, or round Brothers Water. Great facilities on site, The Brothers Water pub at the entrance, a couple of minutes drive into Glenridfing for small shops and the Ullswater Steamers.

Stayed at Sykeside last year and loved it, great site. We had a lovely walk up a small peak on the east of the lake, and then back by boat.
