The Top 10 days out from The Quiet Site
No 1 The walk from The Quiet Site to Aira Force Waterfalls. This day constantly tops the rankings for a favourite day out. The 8 mile walk is awesome and the route can be downloaded from our Local Walks page.
No 2 The Quiet Bar. Our on site bar is often referred to the best holiday park bar in Britain.. who are we to disagree?
No 3 Ullswater Steamers. Jump off at Howtown and take the gorgeous walk back to Glenridding. Dogs welcome.
No 4 Helvellyn was voted to be the nation’s favourite walk in 2018. While we agree this is a superb day out it only made it to No 4 on the Quiet Sites list..!
No 5 Blencathra A superb high level walk and just 20 mins drive from The Quiet Site.
No 6 Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) Ullswater is perfect for this fast growing sport and instruction is available with Ullswater Paddleboarding.
No 7 The Ullswater Way A 22 mile walk around the most beautiful lake in the country. You can tackle it in stages if the full walk isn’t for you.
No 8 Lowther Castle & Gardens. An imposing ruin with an enormous children’s playground, a garden restoration project and lots of lovely cycle paths.
No 9 Open Water Swimming in Ullswater is available just 1.5 miles from us at Ullswater Swim Place.
No10 A out in day in Keswick. Great theatre, hungry ducks and lots of anorak shops!
