The photo of the bluebells above was taken last week halfway up the Kirkstone Pass.
We received our first delivery of wood chip last week . The biomass boiler popped into action on Thursday. Our thermal solar panels are regularly generating 200kW hours + a day in this lovely weather. The panels will work in conjunction with the new biomass boiler and the whole biomass/solar system is computer controlled and will represent one of the most energy efficient and sustainable systems of any UK holiday park. It is predicted to pay for itself within eight years.
This biomass boiler will replace six gas and oil boilers around the park. The bar, both luxury cottages, the service block, all the bathrooms and the children's playrooms are heated using this one boiler.

Spooky bat shot above taken over Ullswater at midnight last week.
Lots of reasons to visit us!
We are very well placed for walking with many trails starting right at the site. The classic eight mile walk round trip walk to Aira Force waterfalls is one of lakelands best. Ullswater steamers are planning a new pier at Aira Force so even more walks will become available.
Dougal is off to Horse Of the Year Show!
Dougal has qualified to compete at HOYS again later in the year. He qualified in Lincoln on Thursday and will have a little well earned rest before getting himself ready for Hickstead in July. (For those of you who don't know, Dougal is a pony ridden by George who helps out at The Quiet Site. We also help out with transport and rugs)
