Sustainable Glamping, Camping and Touring Holidays

The Quiet Site began welcoming guests in 1963 and many of our original customers have journeyed with us from a basic camping field to the state-of-the-art, sustainable holiday park we are have become.  The gorgeous views and fabulous hospitality we offer are still the same, but the facilities and our green credentials are now world class.  Sympathetic development has enabled us to retain the traditional ambiance of a Cumbrian farm while offering sustainable technologies and modern glamping accommodation. Customer service is central to all we do here.

In a nutshell, we offer quality glamping, camping and touring holidays that don’t cost the earth!
