Rain + Camping = Mud? Not at The Quiet Site!
While rain fall records have been smashed this year we are happy to report that the years spent upgrading our pitches to pea gravel bases is really paying off this year. Pitches are firm and clean, just a little damp! The becks, low darting clouds and waterfalls are amazing and its all very dramatic.
After The Quiet Site won this year's Cumbria Tourism’s 2012 award for Sustainability we have now been asked to represent our region in the National finals early in 2013. Solar panel's crossed!

Does your car need a holiday too?
Please do not forget the new bus route that calls at our gates! We are now connected to Penrith Railway Station, Glenridding and Keswick by a daily bus service. This will enable our guests to tour the area without resorting to the car. The route will link us to Ullswater Steamers, Aira Force waterfalls, the foot of Blencathra, Penrith and all the fun of Keswick.
The bus stops at The Quiet Site at 8.48 am and 6.29pm each day.
All the action from the Olympics including the opening ceremony's will be shown in the bar on a huge television. A great atmosphere not to be missed.
Online photo gallery
Don't forget our online photo gallery where you can post your 'Quiet' memories.
What's going on in the Lakes this year?
From country shows to a marmalade festival! Please let us know if we have missed anything... More dates will be added as they are released.
This has enabled us to update the hook-ups to all our pitches so there should be no problem getting an electrical hook-up at The Quiet Site anymore. This is another one of those invisable investments that is never seen.
Stayed with us before?
We’d love to hear about it. We are committed to constantly improving everyone's holiday experience at The Quiet Site, and one way we can do this is by listening to what you, our guests, tell us after your visit. At www.ratethispark.co.uk/TheQuietSite there is a simple questionnaire which allows you to rate different aspects of your stay. Good, bad or indifferent, we'd love to know! Thank you for giving us your thoughts - and for helping us make The Quiet Site even better for your next visit..
Don't forget about The Quiet Site's sister company: www.lakescaravanstore.co.uk. The Quiet Site will collect your van before your holiday and return it to storage at the end of your stay at no cost. We are also happy to deliver to other Cumbrian parks at a small charge.
Don't forget we are on Facebook. Why not make us a friend.. 'a Facebook Friend'.
Please remember to record any sightings of mammals or birds during your visit here so we can keep an online record.
This week we have seen; deer, hedgehogs, buzards, red squirrels, hares, rabbits, bats, woodpeckers, nesting swallows, ducklings in the wetland area and loads more!
Royal International Horse Show
The Quiet Site is delighted to help transport George and his pony Dougal down to Hickstead this year for a crack at the cup final of horse shows. They are competing in the 13 hand class on Wednesday 18th July so if you see him please give him a shout! They qualified at the Cheshire Show and are going for the double having won at the prestigious Horse of the Year Show in October last year. George can sometimes be found helping in The Quiet shop while Dougal helps keep the site grass short in the winter. Fingers and hooves crossed!
Please remember to take extra care when using disposable BBQs and Gas BBQs. There has been a steady increase in the number of incidents over the years where BBQs have been taken into tents and caravans etc as a source of extra heat. A burning gas flame or smouldering coal produces carbon monoxide (CO), an odourless, colourless, nonirritating gas which is highly poisonous. On no account should BBQs be taken inside any enclosed spaces. Coal or throw away BBQs should always be removed from awnings and the entrances to tents etc when cooking has finished.
