Grass Tents - Hobbits in Cumbria
An exciting new development is nearing completion. Our first GrassTent will open its door for the first time in the next few weeks. Bilbo Baggins and friends will be very welcome for a unique Cumbrian holiday experience. Hobbits in Cumbria! The picture shown is similar to the Grass Tent we will be offering.
The New Aira Pier
We are very excited to say work is progressing quickly on Aira Pier ready for sailings to commence towards the end of May.
This will give the opportunity to enjoy a short cruise to National Trust Aira Force to visit the waterfall, then take a leisurely wander on the new 3 mile walk back to Glenridding.
Thanks to the 'Drive Less See More Campaign' Ullswater Steamers are running extra evening sailings from Pooley Bridge to Howtown and back on Thursday evenings from 28th May to 3rd September 2015. The cruise will leave Pooley Bridge at 6.30pm and Howtown at 7pm. Returning to Pooley Bridge at 7.30pm.
The Quiet Site has been successful in securing an electric car so we can be part of the Cumbrian electric car network. The quirky, two seater Twizy, electric car will be available for hire from the site sometime in June. We will also be introducing a PodnTwizy experience later in the year so watch this space..!
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!
