The Quiet Bar
A Bar with a difference...
Often described as the best campsite bar in Britain, the atmosphere in this building is without doubt, unique! To many the bar represents a great place to swap stories and tales about the day's events.
The original building was erected in 1648 as an agricultural barn. It is attached to the farmhouse in the traditional Cumbrian Long barn style. The barn was rebuilt in 1752. The Barn was converted into a bar in the 1950s.
Little has been changed to the main structure since the original conversion.
Young children have their own room upstairs with a playhouse and soft play centre.
Older children (and adults!) can play on the pool table. Adjacent to the bar there is another games room with table football and air hockey.
Recent work includes a complete new Westmorland slate roof which boasts Scandinavian levels of thermal insulation, a new sandstone flag floor and carbon neutral heating. Life has never been as warm!
The bar sells a good selection of beers headed up by ales brewed at the local Tirril Brewery. These include Red Barn Ale, Academy Ale and the latest offering - 'The Quiet Pint' - an ale guaranteed to satisfy even the hardest of fell walkers!
Our own brew - 'The Quiet Pint' - is available to buy in the site shop.
The bar area is usually open through the day as a place for tea and coffee, drinks are available in the evening. During low season the bar may not be open in the evening.
We often have live music on in the bar - Click here to view our events
We hope you enjoy visiting the bar but do ask you to remember that when leaving the bar, do so as quietly as possible!
The unique bar here at the Quiet Site is available for hire throughout the year. Private functions, weddings receptions, parties, corporate events and even children's parties are all welcome.
We are happy to discuss individual requirements such as catering, entertainment, live music, activity days etc.
