Reviewer: GingerFiFi 4 reviews from this member

After a mad dash up them6, trying to beat the sunset, we ended up panicking about making it here for 9pm. A quick text to the site owner, and they assured us we would be fine to book in at the bar. Arrived in the pitch (I mean pitch!) black - as this is an evolution site, there are no outdoor lights - be prepared with head torches if you're arriving late. Our gravel serviced pitch wasn't the most level (needed wheel levellers and a fair bit of messing with the jockey wheel/steadies to get level). Quite difficult in the dark, but we got there. We noticed our neighbour had his back steadies on three wooden blocks the following day, so the slope is there.

Fabulous views, lots of walks nearby. Children's adventure play field is great - more than just a play park, encouraging them to run about and be a bit more adventurous. The dog walking meadow is a lovely place - not just a square field, but bushes and places for him to explore which he loved. The indoor soft play area is small, but our 3 year old loved it - and it meant we could relax with a drink on the Saturday evening, as she was playing with her new friends right next to us. Entertainment (piano singer) in the bar was really low key and chilled on Saturday night.

Facilities were spotless, family bathrooms a nice touch. Shop was small but well stocked. Would we come back? We're considering a seasonal pitch.

What a lovely site! We stayed for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very well maintained, very clean and modern showers. Live music in the site bar our first night was great and our 3 year old loved the wee play area upstairs - a great idea so the parents can have a couple of drinks and some adult time.

Amazing location, beautiful scenery. Would highly recommend. The only downside would be the gravel pitches, a bit sore on the knees!

I can't add much that hasn't already been said. This is an excellent site. It does everything that other campsites do, but does it all a little bit better than most. We loved the bar, which had all the atmosphere of a proper country pub. We loved the bathrooms - being able to give the children a bath after a long walk was great! Although the gravel did make it hard to pitch the awning, we were grateful not to have the ground turn into a muddy puddle when it rained and would choose to pitch on gravel again, particularly in the Lakes! The food from the sausage van was great too - the children even ate the mashed potato (unheard of at home!) Children's facilities were the best we have encountered and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only possible downside to this site is that if you don't want to use a car when you're staying here your options are quite limited - but there is a bus stop at the end of the lane. The site initially appears quite expensive, but there are no hidden extras for awnings, hook ups, showers etc. , so it works out as average for the Lakes (in our experience).

This is one of my, if not the most, favourite camp sites. We've stayed here 5 times in total now over the last 9 years, and wherever else we might go I always feel myself drawn back here. It's in a beautiful location, and the site is extremely well maintained and eco-friendly. The staff are lovely - really cheerful and they couldn't be more helpful. There's a great olde worlde bar if you want it, which often has live music or a magician entertaining people. And it's quiet when it's supposed to be quiet, so no inconsiderate people to spoil it for everyone else. I definitely recommend this camp site, and will of course be returning again.

We have just returned from this site which we have visited several times in the past.

The magnificent views from the site, the fantastic bar and the friendly staff are still as good as ever but unfortunately since our last visit the site has been rearranged to its detriment.

Part of the site adjacent to the facilities now houses two rows of static caravans. The area for tents and tourers has been terraced to provide more level pitches, but many if not all of these pitches are a piebald mixture of grass and pea gravel and are unsightly, uncomfortable and not great for standard pegs. Luckily I carry a range of pegs and used the heavy steel 'V' type, but one night when it was windy we could hear people hammering in extra pegs for their tents and awnings.

The static caravans runs across the otherwise short route from the touring pitches to the excellent facilities, so a visit to the toilets or showers means a detour around them. A pathway between the statics could easily have been incorporated into the site layout.

Fabulous site, away from everything but also not too far away.

Greeted on arrival and taken to our spacious plot. Pitch was a mix of grass and gravel so hard pegs needed. But as the weather was inclement to say the least, tent was spotless and dry when we took it down. Bit of a walk from near the top of the site to the facilities, but all helps keep us fit. Fabulous little bar with some games for older kids and a small soft play area for the kids. Wash up area clean and spotless with plenty of hot water, and large washrooms with a couple of fsmily bathrooms.

Weather was shocking but the site was not, will definitely be back.

The Quiet Site is one of the best sites we have stayed on being very well laid out with large individual pitches and superb views over Ullswater from the top of the site. It is well maintained and the toilet and shower facilities are excellent including family bathrooms. The pitches are a mixture of grass and pea gravel which can make it difficult to hammer tent pegs in, but at least they do not get too muddy when the inevitable Lake District rain comes! There is a great real ale bar on site. The site is dog friendly and has a good dog walking area. There are plenty of walks from the site.

We have stayed on the site a few times and will be returning.

Just returned home from this site and I have mixed feelings

We arrived on Thursday and the staff were wonderful and more than helpful at first I loved the site everything was clean and tidy and well laid out I was saddened that my shampoo etc was missing after I'd leftbitvfor only an hour which I've never had before in 30 years of camping but

Then the bank holiday started and I expected the site to get busy but I felt hemmed in by cars and other units I had over half hour wait for the shower in the morning and it certainly wasn't the quiet site and the silent rule was not adhered to sadly and the static caravan based at the back of us were rowdy until 2. 30 am which again I've never come across before

I think if I was to go back I'd only go out of season

The facilities were fantastic there was a great dog walk area and again the staff were great

It may be as I'm used to walkers sites which are normally more traditional but all sai and fine this is a great site

This was our first visit to the Quiet site where we have just spent 4 nights camping. All the facilities are excellent and always clean. There are 4 showers in both the ladies and gents plus family bathrooms and two hairdryers in the ladies. Wash up area has 4 sinks with a step for younger children to help with the chores. Didn't use the washer or dryer, but would definitely stay for more than 4 nights next time so we would make use of these then. Large fridge/freezer was great and the kids loved the pub and the play facilities where they made more friends. We invested in electric hook up while we were there and expected to pay more for the last 3 nights, but it was all included in the original price which was very reasonable compared to many other sites. Will definitely return.

I really can't add anything about this site that hasn't already been said. The location, the standards of the site and the walks from the site are wonderful. We were met by the warden Claire who had only been in the job for less than a week. I can truly say that we had the warmest, friendliest welcome that we have experienced. She was very helpful and a credit to the site. We will return.
