February 2017 Newsletter


After a great Summer and an almost perfect autumn the Lake District is now delivering a fantastic winter. Clear blue skies, snow covered tops and very little in the way of rain... what a difference a year makes !   

Bookings are coming in thick and fast for 2017 with the Hobbit Holes filling up particularly quickly.  As usual our peak times are the first to go with New Year 2017/18 already half full. 
We have had our busiest winter to date both on the park and also with new projects.  The 10 Hobbit Holes will be finished in a few days time and then, after half term, work begins on a new family shower room, to compliment the 4 family bathrooms we already have.
We hope to be able to welcome you to The Quiet Site for a well earned holiday in 2017.
Daniel and the Quiet Team.


With the final Hobbit Hole days away from  being completed we can announce that the 'tunnel' to the world's first Hobbit Hole Hotel is just about to open... There are 10 individual Hobbit Holes which can each accommodate up to 2 adults and 4 children.  The views are fantastic. Each has own toilet and wash basin and a large covered deck area means that outside cooking can continue even when the weather is not playing ball.  A large sleep ledge at the back of each Hobbit Hole guarantees that families can reconnect in a way that only a camping holiday can.

Caravan and Motorhome show, Manchester  2017
Thank you to all those who visited us at The Caravan Show in Manchester last week.  Sadly the local toffee and fudge ran out before the end of the show but it was lovely to meet so many people - past guests and potential future ones.  We shared a stand with our friends from Park Cliffe and Castlerigg Hall. The centre piece on the stand was a VW photo booth which proved very popular with stand visitors.

Pod n Pedal - top parks, top scenery!

Cyclists can now tour the Lake District's best-loved highlights on a four-day break which will see them waking every morning to a new vista from their camping pod accommodation.

The itinerary, which covers just under 70 miles of scenic grandeur, has been put together by three of Cumbria's most highly acclaimed holiday parks, all independently owned.
The Pod 'n' Pedal break begins in the north of Cumbria and works its way south via country lanes, roads and cycle paths, suitable for both road and mountain bikes.

Inclusive of three nights in comfortable modern camping pods, each overlooking a different lake with spectacular mountain scenery, the cost is just £120.00 for two people for PodnPedal and £165 for two people for PodnPedal Plus including two mattresses, two chairs and bedding.
The three parks involved in this operation are the top 3 parks rated on Tripadvisor in the Lake District.  Gift Vouchers available!
