The Quiet News Winter 2015
We can hardly believe another year is almost over.. our 30th here at The Quiet Site.
Mixed, excellent and lovely are the words we would use to describe our weather, staff and customers this year.. and in that order!
Our first VW weekend was a great success. Over 60 VWs was a great sight and fun was had despite the weather..! We will be repeating VW weekends next year on 4th and 5th March and 11th and 12th November.
The confirmed music dates for the remainder of this year and most of next year appear below. More music dates and the table top magic dates will be added in the New Year. We are pleased to welcome back Mean Mary, a must see American singer.
Bookings are coming in thick and fast for 2016 so if you are planning to visit us next year don't leave it too late.. With a choice of Tent, Caravan and Motorhome pitches, Camping Pods, Hobbit Holes, pre-erected Bell Tents and Luxury Cottages, we should have something for everyone.
The Power of Three..!
Ullswater, Derwentwater and Windermere are all included in this three-night lake-lovers break which has been created by ourselves and our friends at Park Cliffe and Castlerigg Hall.
The 3 Lakes Tour is on offer to owners of small and medium sized campervans, those bringing a tent or hiring a camping pod.
You will be able to awake each morning to different views of spectacular lake and mountain scenery made world-famous by poets and artists and enjoy a short break which will be long on memorable experiences.
As well as forming a perfect triangle linking three of Cumbria’s best-loved lakes, the journey between the parks can also be planned to take in many of the region’s highlights. These include the 4000-year-old mystical stone circle at Castlerigg, the Aira Force waterfalls, and plentiful picture-postcard villages and towns along the way.
As part of The 3 Lakes Tour guests will receive a money-saving bonus in the form of vouchers entitling you to discounted travel on the various lake cruises.
These breaks are available from March until November 2016 covering any three nights from Sunday until Thursday, excluding school holiday periods.
Contact Park Cliffe Reception on (015395) 31344 to make a booking or purchase a gift voucher - ideal for Christmas - or email email@example.com

The Ullswater Way
After much work by the Ullswater Association, a network of existing footpaths are now linked and signposted to form a complete walk around Ullswater. This network is to be called The Ullswater Way. We are just a few hundred meters from this new linked path and look forward to walking the circuit ourselves in the New Year.
The Quiet Ponies
The Quiet Site helps with the cost of transport and rugs for some local competition ponies. The Quiet Site Team has recently invested in a 6 year old gelding called Noble Quiet Man. He is a very good looking young boy from Ireland for whom we have high hopes !
If you have a young child who would be interested in having a ride on one of the Quiet ponies please let us know before you arrive - we will try and arrange for a pony to visit at the same time as you!
Caravan and Motorhome Show, Manchester
Come and visit us at the Manchester Caravan Show between 21st and 24th January. You will find us on stand 3-174 in Hall 3.
We are sharing the stand with our good friends from Park Cliffe and Castlerigg Hall.
