Welcome to July's newsletter... Another collection of photographs, news and trivia from The Quiet Site. The weather has been fantastic for the last few weeks... long may it last!
We are delighted to announce that the Quiet Site has won the Cumbria Tourism Sustainable Award for 2014. This is the second time we have won this accolade. It was a hard fought category and we are extremely pleased to have been presented with this prestigious award.
The evening was great fun as we shared a table with the owners and staff from Park Cliffe and Castlerigg Hall , our partners in the PodnPedal experience.
We now go forward to the National Tourism Awards representing Cumbria. Wish us luck!
As mentioned in the previous newsletter Castlerigg Hall (Keswick), Park Cliffe (Windermere) and The Quiet Site (Ullswater) have come together to offer a unique Pod and cycling experience.
It has been extremely successful with virtually all dates available throughout the summer now booked.
The next availability is not until 30th August.
Bikes will soon be available for hire directly from Penrith Station. Contact our office for more details.
Pod'n'Pedal includes one night in a Pod at each site and a detailed map of the cycle route between them.
You can arrive and leave by train making it an exceptionally green holiday for 2 people.
Priced at just £99 for 2 people for 3 nights this can be booked directly or bought as an open ended gift voucher.
For more information on purchasing a voucher or booking a Pod'n'Pedal holiday please email firstname.lastname@example.org
