The Quiet Site is excited about the world reopening in the coming months. We are all looking forward to welcoming back customers both old and new and are delighted to be a small part in some of your great British holiday plans.
We have been offering holidays on one of the worlds most beautiful valleys for nearly sixty years. But as the decades pass our world is showing clear signs of being unable to cope with the consequences of humanities continued desire for growth.
We all have choices how to live our lives: where we live, the energy sources we use, if we accept single use plastic or not, what we buy and from where etc etc..
At The Quiet Site we have spent the last two decades making business and investment choices based on a desire to be fully sustainable. We consider both our place in the community as well as our our embedded and operational footprints 👣.
Choosing a ‘Quiet’ holiday means you too want to make a difference in the world.
After 20 years of re-investment we now operate as a carbon neutral company.
As a business we ask all our customers to buy into the green ethos. Reduce, Reuse, Refill and Recycle.

The Quiet Team are absolutely delighted to have received the following awards:
- Queens Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development 2020.
- Visit England awarded us with a Silver award for Sustainability 2020.
- FSB Award for Sustainability 2020.
- Green Tourism Gold Award 2020.

The Circular economy is the way the world will need to move to survive.
Designing out waste and pollution, keeping materials in use and using renewable energy sources doesn’t sound too hard – does it? We believe that there needs to be a balance between our Business, our Customers and the Community we operate in. Operating as a Carbon Neutral business is just the start of our journey to become truly sustainable. In 2021 we are developing 15 new Camping Accommodations that will be Carbon Positive, ie they will generate more energy than they use.
As with so many of the worlds problems, the technology already exists, all we have to do is get it in the right order!
