Overlooking Ullswater in the Lake District, this family-friendly site that is open all year round really lives up to its name – it makes a great place to stay if you’re looking for a little peace. It also makes a great base if you’re a keen walker: there are lots of beautiful paths to take nearby, some of which start just outside the site itself.
We are the top rated park on Tripadvisor for the Lake District in 2015, 2016 and now 2017. Our green credentials are excellent and are the only park in Cumbria to hold the prestigious Green Tourism Gold Award.
And it's a super site no matter what kind of camping holiday you're after. There are 60 touring pitches, all of which are hardstanding, some gravel, some tarmac, some stone based, all suitable for both motorhomes and caravans. Indeed, there are two touring fields, one for tourers and statics, one for tourers and campers. Caravan storage can be arranged, too. Many of the pitches have water hook up and grey water drains. All have electric.
The Quiet Site also has an area for those who wish to pitch a tent at this pretty campsite in the Lake District. The pitches sit on a mix of pea gravel and grass and are flat, the pitches all terraced. The site's microwave, fridge and freezer can be used by visiting campers.
Or you could stay in one of the two self catering holiday cottages, next to The Quiet Site. These 16th century cottages each have a stone terrace with garden furniture, plus there's a big, grassy area outside that has a sunken trampoline, and there is off-road parking for two cars at each cottage.
Cute, timber camping pods are also available for hire. Insulated with lamb's wool against the chill of winter, but still with enough ventilation to be comfortable on hot days, the pods are totally empty, so just bring all your usual camping gear – minus the tent, of course! – and enjoy a camping holiday with a difference near stunning Ullswater.
New for 2017 are 10 new underground Hobbit Holes. They sleep up to 2 adults and 4 children and boast their own private WC's. A large covered deck area enable you to enjoy the spectacular Ullswater views, whatever the weather.
The final option is to spend your camping holiday in a pre-erected bell tent. With enough room for up to two adults and four children, again, just bring your camping kit, but leave your tent at home. And despite being tents, they even have a plug socket for charging your electrical devices, as well as mains lights.
The Quiet Site is an award winning campsite and features in the Caravan Sitefinder, Practical Motorhome and Practical Caravan Top 100 Sites Guide 2017.
This secluded site with memorable views also has a great number of facilities. The modern amenities block has toilets, showers and baths, plus there's a family shower room, and much of the water is heated using solar power. There is also a well equipped room in which to get your laundry done, as well as sinks for dishwashing, a gas exchange, many water points around the site, a chemical disposal point and a motorhome service point, barbecue stands and everyone has access to a microwave, a fridge and a freezer.
There's site-wide Wi-Fi, although access is not guaranteed on all pitches, while the well stocked shop at The Quiet Site will mean you'll never run out of your holiday essentials. You can keep the kids busy on the adventure playground, while for younger children there's a soft play centre. Adults can enjoy a drink at the bar that is open all day, or challenge one another at a game of pool. There's also a secure bike store, a public telephone and a dog walk through a wild meadow.
So it is clear that if you are looking for somewhere to spend your motorhome, camping and caravan holidays in the Lake District that is in a breathtaking location but has a host of facilities, The Quiet Site could well be just what you're after. It's also easily accessible from the M6, but it’s best not to use your sat-nav to find it; instead, follow the detailed directions that can be found on the campsite's own website.
