The Quiet Bar

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 1963. Little has been changed to the main structure since the original conversion.

Young children have their own playroom with table football and airhockey. Older children (and adults!) can play on the pool table upstairs. 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 Quiet Bar is usually open every night of the year for drinks.

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 always open through the day for guests to enjoy. From January 2019 the bar will be open EVERY EVENING for drinks..!

We hope you enjoy visiting the bar but do ask you to remember that when leaving the bar, do so as quietly as possible!
