The site will be reopening on 12th April 2021.  Our shared facilities (showers +WC’s) will not be open until 17th May.   

At present this means we are not permitted to open our Camping Pitches until 17th May. 

All weather tent pitches

The Quiet Site campsite is situated between Little Mell Fell and Ullswater in Cumbria. The views have a definite alpine feel: look West for the impressive Helvellyn and Fairfield, East for the Pennines and South for Barton, Hallin and Place Fells.

The all weather tent pitches are flat terraces with a pea gravel centre and a grassy surround.  This pea gravel centres means we virtually eliminate mud, even when we experience heavy rain.  The pea gravel is smooth and round but if you would like to borrow one of our groundsheets to put down under your tent please ask at reception.  All the pitches have lovely views down towards Ullswater.

All tent pitches have electric hook-ups, rated at 6 amps.   We do not accept gazeebos.  If your tent is larger than 8 meters please book two pitches.

Cars are parked on hard standings adjacent to the access roads. Cars are not permitted on the grass. Pitches in the middle of the park will need to carry their equipment up to 20 meters.  Please let us know if you require help.

Campers are welcome to use the campsite’s fridges, freezers, toaster, kettle and microwave and toaster. Stands are available for disposable BBQs.

Group bookings of up to two families/couples are only accepted after contacting the office.  We reserve the right to decline a booking or charge a noise deposit.

Caravan Site & Motorhomes

Caravans and motorhomes have hard standing pitches, some of which are tarmac, some gravelled and some have a stone base where grass has been allowed to grow through.

There are two fields for touring caravans. The smaller field accommodates both tourer and static caravans. This field is closer to the service building and is perhaps the Quietest! The larger field accommodates Caravans, Motorhomes, Tents, Grass Tents and Camping PODs. This field is situated on the lower slopes of Little Mell Fell. The higher up this field you pitch, the better the views, but the further away you are from the services!

Rock pegs may be required. These can be purchased in The Quiet Site Shop.

Pitches are generally reserved in advance, especially at busy times.
