We initially stayed for three nights and liked it so much that we booked a seasonal pitch until December :)

The site is laid out very well and the facilities are very clean and modern. The bar which has an open grate fire is very welcoming and comfortable. They have live acts most weekends during the season and is very varied. There is also a mobile caterer open in the morning and the evening for several hours. There are many things to do in the Lake District and nothing is too far away. We are looking forward to the Fell walking which is the main attraction for us.

We have been coming here for many years now & leave our caravan in storage with them. There have been significant improvements to the pitches over the winter with the newer caravan pitches having water & drain on the pitch. Pitches vary in size, all have space for awning & parking on the pitch. There is a good children's adventure play area outside with a big field for them to play in. Older children are safe to run & play without need to worry. You can see them from most pitches when playing in the field. There is plenty of places to walk & ride bikes. Well behaved dogs are welcome on site & there is a lot of space to walk them. The bar is fantastic and has its own unique personality complete with soft play area for young children, pool table, table football, air hockey, table tennis & the best bit - a big open fire. This does get very busy during school holidays. The site has a well stocked shop with the basics. There is a Morrisons & Go Outdoors in Penrith for any major items.

The site has 3 family bathrooms as well as showers. Which are well maintained and very clean.

The site is relaxed with a brilliant view of Ullswater. This is the perfect place to come & relax. There are many people that are regulars & everyone is friendly. There are plenty of ideas for days out by the bar, so you should never be bored, but it's nice to sit & watch the world go by. The staff are warm & welcoming. If you want to party all weekend. This is probably not the place for you.

What a beautiful site! The location is amazing, surrounded by a variety of gorgeous walks, the facilities are spotless, modern and plentiful, the service is outstanding, and the bar is one of the best I've experienced in a site (think Canadian hunting lodge with mood lighting). There are pubs nearby for food, but even after we'd eaten We couldn't wait to get back to the Quiet Site bar. We extended our stay as we enjoyed this site so much. If you're looking for a loud 'hen party' style site do not come here. This campsite is all about relaxation and exceptional standards. We will definitely come here again!

Top location. It lives up to its name. There is a small outdoor play area for the kids at the bottom of the site. Not good if it is wet though as it will get wet. Has a common room come bar on site. The bar is only open when they decide it should be. This is I suspect when it is worthwhile. But that is fare enough. You can still go in and sit by the fire and, if you have toddlers, they can play on the small softplay area. Bigger kids are left to pay for their entertainment with a football table, air hockey and table tennis. £0. 30 to £1. 00 a game.

The bar area is really nice and cosy, and when it was open on the saturday night, the beer was good and not expensive.

The only concerns I would have is that the shower/toilets are not very big. 4 showers for the men and 4 for the women for a site that can hold 80 plus tents and tourers. No problems in February though !, and there is no security barrier. Small point, as it is off the beaten track, but something I have got used to.

Staff friendly, didn't have cause to use the shop. Quick look in though showed it is small and with essentials.

Back to the site itself. Park your van anyway round you fancy which is great considering the views you will want to wake upto. If you don't want to touch the car at all the there are loads of walks to be had from the site. Ullswater is only 1. 5miles away.

If you fancy eating/drinking out the there is the Brackenrigg at the end of the road which serves a good pint. Probably the best view from a beer garden I can think of. We ate at the white horse at scales which is a about 30minutes away but well worth the journey for the food and the beer.

Recently stayed at the Quiet site between Xmas and New Year. New to caravanning so had a few hiccups but the staff were absolutely brilliant, with both help and advice. Toilet and shower blocks are both warm and very clean. The bar was excellent. Good atmosphere and a decent artist on. Good pub at the bottom of the road and Pooley Bridge and Penrith close by if you forget anything. Views from the top of the site are spectacular. Cannot wait to go back.

Reviewer: Motley 25 reviews from this member

We've been meaning to try this site for ages, but just got round to it.

I cannot praise it enough. I normally find a couple of niggles even on the best sites, not this one.

Pitches are nicely spaced out, not in regimented lines but a more casual layout. Most of them are on steps cut into the hillside with lovely views.

No public transport to speak of, but that's hardly the sites fault. Penrith us close to hand, Keswick, one of our favourite places is within half an hours drive and of course a all of the wonderful lakes.

The site has its own bar which was quite unusual, full of knick nacks and oddities. It's a converted barn with raised platforms at each end, one of which boasts a pool table.

There's a kiddies room with assorted games which keeps them under the same roof.

There was a real stroppy customer, the type that thinks the world owes him a living. His complaint was trivial, but very loud, the Owner/Warden, handled the matter with calm and tact, I would have booted him out! And he went quietly back to his van and was not seen in the bar again.

All in all a very pleasant experience and we'll definitely be heading back.

We spent 5 nights at the Quite Site and loved every minute of it! We were very lucky as the weather was hot and sunny.

We had a pitch at the top of the site on a terrace overlooking the whole campsite and over to Ullswater!

The pitch size is really good and there is a children’s play area at the bottom of the site. It has easy access and you can park your car close to your tent. There is a small shop open during the day and has essential in there to buy as well as a good selection of meats and other foods, you can even charge our phone in there for a pound! If you want more or a supermarket the closest one is only 3 miles away and is open till 10pm. There is a covered 'campers kitchen' where you can use the fridge and freezer plus a microwave. There is a recommended board with suggested places to eat and explore whilst you are visiting. On check in they also give you 4 popular walks to do from which you can walk out from the site.

The site is extremely clean with lots of shower facilities and 2 baths. I believe these has just been refurbished so everything is new.

There is a small cosy bar on site which is open 7pm-11pm and has entertainment in most evenings and reasonable selection of drinks at good prices. There is also a pub at the bottom of the hill if you fancy some pub grub and a local ale.

You can rent out tepees, caravans and little wooden lodges as well as brining your own tent.

This is one of the best campsites we’ve been to with great facilities and a cracking view of Ullswater. We will definitely be back next year!

I LOVE this site! We stayed here for 5 (very wet and rainy) nights as part of our touring holiday. I had read about this site so many times I just had to try and I wasn't disappointed.

Ullswater is a fabulous location and we had a lovely view from our pitch. It was out first time pitching on pea gravel and I have to say it was fantastic given the rainy weather we experienced!

The toilet block was warm, clean and certainly big enough. There is a covered 'campers kitchen' where you can use the fridge and freezer plus a microwave if you wish. I think there was a also a kettle.

The absolute god-send though is the fantastic bar with it's game room, soft play and welcoming open fire. They sell some lovely real ales in here and on the Sat night we were treated to boogie woogie Will on the piano whilst Sunday night we were entertained with card tricks at the table by a lovely young magician.

Some sheep escaped into the field on our last day there which was memorable!

I certainly can't say enough good things about this site; the kids loved it, the father in law loved it, me and my partner loved it! Happy campers all round and can't wait to go back again.

My wife and I stayed at the Quiet Site this August, I would agree with the reviews on cleanliness and its setting - its great and the area is terraced so there is not problem with you moving down hill when you are asleep. As to the name of the quiet site - this could be changed for the holiday time (the not so quiet site!) but you will get by.

We stayed in a pod and for a 1st camping trip with a 5 yo & a 1 yo it was awesome. We will definitely be back for more than 2 nights next time :)

The site is easier to find than I was led to believe by some reviews and was extremely clean. I would have liked a shower over the bath in the family bathrooms to make it easier to wash the kids and me in one go but generally really impressed by the facilities.

Shop didn't have everything we needed but town was only 15 or so min drive for a large supermarket.

Lots of space for kids and despite the large numbers of children the site was quite quiet! Bar was busy and well priced in my opinion.

My only critism is really for the manufacturers of the pod - a higher up shelf would be ideal for hot dinks when the kiddies are about.
