The Quiet Bar

***COVID-19  The Quiet Bar is closed, in line with current law. The bar will be one of the last of our facilities to reopen. Don’t Despair!  Drinks will be available through the shop serving window for you to enjoy at your own accomodation. Please email your order to a few minutes before you wish to pick up your drinks. We will confirm back with the price and ask you to call to make payment and confirm pickup time.  Social distancing must be observed at all times and anyone not abiding by these rules will be asked to leave the park.

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 air hockey. 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 but will sadly be closed until further notice.

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.

We sell locally distilled spirits including: Lakes Gingerbread Vodka, Sticky Toffee Pudding Rum, Herdwick Gin, Kendal Mint Cake Vodka, Rhubarb Gin, Elderflower Gin, Slow Gin and Lakes Vodka.

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!
