This was our first time at the site and found the location lovely with great views. The facilities were great - family bathrooms with baths a great plus for our family with 2 small children. Also a microwave for warming the milk.

There was plenty of room in the fridges & freezers on site, and even though this was peak season we only had to wait a few minutes for showers / bathrooms. The bar is lovely & cosy especially on a cold wet night with a great soft play area for under 5's but as it only opened at 7pm, we didn't get to use it much. The outdoor playground and field was loved by our children.

However, we found the management running the site to be unfriendly on a number of occasions which made us feel unwelcome. Therefore, due to this we will not be returning to the site and would not recommend it which is a shame as everything else was great.

We have stayed on this site twice within about 2 weeks. This is generally a lovely campsite, the play area/recreation field is brilliant - the children loved being able to roam around. There are loads of toilets, a few showers & these are cleaned regularly.

The bar is absolutely lovely, full of charm plus there's a games room downstairs where the children enjoyed table tennis & air hockey. Upstairs there is an under 5's soft play area that looked good however our children were too old to use it. The shop was a little disappointing in that it was not very well stocked & bit of a waste of time really.

The site is very well maintained & the views around the campsite are lovely.

The first time we stayed we were given a plot next to a camping pod as we requested so that we could be near friends. It was at the entrance of the tent field & a great location for popping to the facilities. Our friends found the pod great although they found sleeping by the door drafty & the prices were more expensive that other sites that include a heater & lighting in the price.

The second time we came we were given a plot in the furthermost corner of the tent field. Initially we thought this was lovely but it was a trek in the middle of the night to pop to the loo plus throughout our 2 night stay we discovered lots of dog doo in that corner! It was rather unpleasant & we were continually watching our 6yr old - being a young boy he wasn't looking where he was putting his feet!

We spent 2 nights at this site with the kids recently - this is a great site in a really good location.

There was an outdoor play area for the kids (basic but kept them entertained) and plenty of space to run around in. There was also an indoor soft play area for under 5s as well as a couple of games rooms. I have to say I was very impressed with the on site bar - it was great to have such a nice bar and ales available on site. The nearby kings arms is also well worth a visit and offers good pub food and ale.

Showers, toilets and washing areas were well specified and maintained - I liked the idea of the family bathrooms also (there were 3) which we found useful.

We were checked in promptly and showed to our pitch by the lady running the on site shop (also good) - we were given a couple of printouts with local walks from the site on - I thought this was a nice touch.

Overall a very good site and I would return again.

A beautiful looking, beautifully kept site. The pub is very nice though gets very crowded in high season.

Child friendly in respect of the nice play area, though one of the wardens was too sharp with kids on several occasions, my own included. (these are little, excited kids I'm talking about, not teenage tearaways).

The site and facilities are lovely, expensive but worth it. The majority of staff are very friendly.

Nearby Aira Force is well worth a visit as are the steamer boats on the lake.

Unfortunately the snappy warden put us off this site and if going back to the area would probably try another site.

Just returned from our 1st visit to this site, and we are very impressed, We have a 5yr old daughter who was very impressed with the generous park area, the adults were equally impressed with the on site bar!

Very cosy with a small indoor soft play area for younger children and pool table for older ones, out of earshot is a TV room, Table football + Table tennis = peace and quiet for the parents, genius!

Staff very helpful if a little stretched at times when several people showed up to check in at the same time

Very well placed site to get to many nice places to visit, Ullwaster, Keswick, Windermere etc, all needing to get the car out so not ideal for motorhomes I shouldn't imagine.

Facilities very good, showers very hot, good for adults, a little too hot for small children but 3 family bathrooms on site to use instead.

An excellent campsite with friendly and helpful staff. Great location away from busy roads and with lovely views including a peek at Ullswater.

The facilities are good and apart from showers there are private family bathrooms. I took my son for a shower at 8 in the morning and we had the block to ourselves. Great bar with log fire and real ale, the kids loved the stuffed animals, antlers and bear skin that adorned the walls.

Great site for kids as there is plenty of open space for them to roam along with an adventure playground, soft play area and games room. Can also recommend Rheged if the weather is bad.

It didn't live up to its name of the 'Quiet' site on the first night as one one anti social group decided they wanted to disturb the rest of the site into the small hours, however they were dealt with by the excellent staff the following day and there were no further problems. Great site for families and we'll definitely return.

Visited this site a few years ago and decided to try out the pod this time to ease my other half into camping. On arrival the owners were fantasic, very friendly and welcoming. When shown the pod we were amazed how nice and spacious these things are and plenty of room to fit a double airbed in and space on the sides to put things down.

The pod comes with a window at the top of the back of the pod and a light that gives off a bit of light. We found the pod to be much like home with the warmth and the front doors open nice and wide. They are nicely situated under the trees and have plenty of space at the front decking for tables and chairs.

We visited the bar on the night time which is coal lit and very warm for those cold nights to have a nice relaxed friendly drink in. All the visitors on the camp site were very friendly and the shower block / toilets are spotless and very nicely furnished indeed. The womens block has electricity supply for straighteners etc too at a small cost.

Situated up from ullswater lake but perfect for getting back onto the road up too keswick. An excellent site and will be back

We visited the Quiet Site with my family who were over from Australia for a few weeks - they stayed in two of the pods and we stayed in a tent which they let us pitch right next to the pods.

The site has immaculately clean washrooms and toilets and even has private bathrooms so you could have a bath if you wanted! The facilities were great and there is a small shop on site. The bar is worth a visit, it's certainly unique and has a log fire which was much appreciated by the Australians.

Unfortunately the location was a bit far from the lake and we got lost the first time we tried to find it, plus it is popular with caravans.

The pods were well insulated and have a thin layer of carpet on the floor, are of a good size and were about twice the price of a tent pitch but a good alternative for anyone unsure about camping! As for the tent pitch, it was flat and of a good size.

We'd definitely think about staying at this site again but honestly we'd probably go for a lakeside one next time. It's certainly an upmarket site!

This September myself and 3 friends stayed in Watermillock cottage, one of the Quiet Site’s holiday cottages. The cottage, an old farmhouse, was absolutely idyllic. It had been renovated and had all the style and comfort we could wish for, there was even an aga. All the bedrooms were lovely, bright and spotless with luxurious beds and an excellent unique bathroom. The cottage shares access to the back garden with Ivy cottage (the holiday cottage next door) but we had it to ourselves. The garden is secluded and well cared for with tables and chairs outside. The garden would be great for kids it has a sunken trampoline and a playhouse with lights!

We had a wonderful, peaceful stay. The site is in the most beautiful location, the scenery was absolutely stunning. We are avid fell walkers and so were in our element. We also visited the picturesque lakeside towns and relaxed! I would thoroughly recommend the site and the holiday cottages to anyone, we couldn’t have wanted more. The cottages even have wi-fi for those who need to keep in touch with the real world. The site staff were all friendly and helpful, there is even a little site shop and an amazing bar that is not to be missed!

Having spent 3 wonderful (sunny!) days on this campsite with friends I would thoroughly recommend it. The location is absolutely stunning with many beautiful walks nearby, really felt I was getting back to nature.

The staff were friendly and helpful, facilities were excellent; the family bathrooms even have baths, what an excellent idea. Hot water was free and the shop supplied everything we had forgotten. The bar is brilliant and quirky, well worth a visit, I doubt there’s anywhere else like it!

An excellent aspect to this campsite, and a reason I, as someone who is conscientious about the environment, will be returning, is that they are striving to be carbon neutral. There is a reed bed water treatment area, they run a program planting trees in the local area, there are recycling points and in this vein a beautiful wild flower meadow has been created that is lovely to walk through.

Yes the site is on a slope but pitches are available that are flat and there are ‘pods’ available that I had never seen before, little futuristic cabins that I will definitely be staying in next time. As mentioned in previous comments you do have to drive to find a restaurant but the seclusion of this site only adds its charm.

I think I have sung its praises long enough, the only negative was that the site was quite muddy as has been mentioned. However the lake district is notorious for its ’changeable’ weather so I’m not holding it against site itself.
