Can anyone recommend a nice quiet site in Lakes please.
Preferably with nice views and able to receive TV.
Cheers

"Quiet in the Lake District" may be an oxymoron.

Surely not all sites are the same Dave
I take it the lake district is the same as most place. I know it gets busy, busy, busy.

We’re at Coniston Park Coppice CAMC site at the moment. It’s a big site but lovely and quiet with pitches in small glades among th3 trees. Easy walk, probably a couple of miles, into Coniston for buses to Ambleside, Hawkshead and Windermere.

Coniston CAMC site is great, big but laid out well in the trees by the lake. Will be busy (and noisier, particularly at the bottom of the site by the play area) in school holidays. Nice walk to Coniston from the site along the lake where there’s shops, pubs and cafes.
Borrowdale CAMC is also lovely. Much smaller with no toilet/shower block. Usually a lot quieter than Coniston but similarly tucked in the trees by the lake. You can walk to Grange but there’s not much there other than a couple of cafes.
Lots of other places to try, they’re just the ones I know. We love both of them. As they’re CAMC they have TV points, which I assume work (we don’t usually use our TV in the caravan).

Not quite in the Lakes but about 6 miles from Kendal and just off J36 of the M6, Farletonview caravan site has 6 touring pitches (in a separate area from a small number of seasonal vans) with views over the fishing lake, fields and fells, and has decent tv reception. The southern lakes are in easy travelling distance, with Keswick etc a little further.
Ravenglass Camping and Caravanning Club site is more difficult to get to but gives good access to the Western lakes (eg Wastwater), and is bigger but a lovely, quiet site, also with good tv reception.

We’ve just had a fab week at Hawkshead Hall campsite just outside Hawkshead. Superb toilet/shower block (best we’ve seen) and tv room but that’s it. No entertainment, no pool. Although there were children about it was lovely and peaceful with views of the surrounding fells. There is a footpath into Hawkshead which takes 10mins. A great choice of pitches including hard standing which you choose yourself upon arrival. £25/night includes hook up high season. Highly recommended.

We spend a week every year at the C&CC site in Keswick but not their main Keswick site but their smaller Derwentwater site that is a few hundred yards further down the road than the main Keswick site. It is much more peaceful than the main site, even when we are there in high seasons, but still only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Keswick in one direction and the lake in the other.
