About us and our Facilities

The Quiet Site is an Award Winning,  Carbon Neutral Holiday Park set amongst the stunning fells that overlook Ullswater.

Sustainability has been at heart of everything we have done for the last two decades.  In 2020 we won a Queens Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development –  indeed we are the first ever holiday park in the UK to receive this award.  We also have a Green Tourism Gold Award.  But don’t worry, being one of the greenest holiday parks in the UK doesn’t compromise our quality.

In 2020 we also won the AA Holiday Park of the Year.  Indeed we have won numerous Awards over the years.

In 2021 we were invited to COP26 in Glasgow to receive a Hero of Net Zero award from the Government.

There are many ‘Ways to Stay’ at The Quiet Site:

  • Gingerbread Houses
  • Glamping Burrows
  • Luxury Cottages
  • Glamping Cabins
  • Camping Pods
  • Pitches for Motorhomes, Caravans and Tents

We are ideally located,  just 10 minutes from the M6 but in the heart of the Lake District National Park.  We are positioned right on the Ullswater Way – a 20 mile circular walk wound England’s most beautiful lake.  World Class attractions just a few minutes from The Quiet Site include Aira Force waterfalls (superb circular walk from us),  Ullswater Steamers and Lowther Castle. England’s most popular mountain, Helvellyn, is just a few minutes drive from us.

It’s not surprising that 80% of our visitors have stayed with us before.
