July 2003
I visited this site after 6 extremely hot days in Derbyshire and the cool weather of the Lakes was a welcome comfort indeed, (it rained from midnight to midday every day and sunny from midday till it got dark).

When we were driving up the road to this site all I could say was WOW WOW WOW, the view over Lake Ullswater was breathtaking and I starting getting excited about the promising views the campsite would have. Well I was gutted when we finally reached the campsite, the only place I could see the Lake and surrounding mountains was by standing at the entrance gate.

With the scenery aside the reception was very friendly and we were shown to our pitch and explained where all the facilities were. They initially put us on a hard standing pitch next to the camping field which although was a great spot, it was a bit dangerous for my 4 year old daughter who had just learnt to ride a bike because there was a big 4 foot drop from the grass to the hard standing of the pitch. We asked to be moved and hats off to the staff they came out and showed us to a new pitch, closer to the fantastic kids play areas and on level ground.

The play area was large enough although in parts did appear a little tatty with loose planks causing a bit of a hazard. They have a large open area where people can enjoy a good game of rounders, football or similar.

We used the laundry on site and this was 2 a load and 50p per 10 minutes in the tumble dryer, both were large machines so not too bad value for money. The pot wash area was clean and had plenty of hot water. The toilets themselves were cleaned daily but due to the rainy weather that one gets in the Lakes, they soon become muddy and rather undesirable. The showers were non-directional and had no shower curtain so risking getting your clothes and shoes wet unless you took along a bag to put them in.

The Olde Worlde Pub on site is pleasent enough but they do not serve food, there is no view of the Lakes and if you are like me and you like the premium beers then this is not the place for you with Fosters being the only lager on tap, they did offer Beamish and Tetleys though. One good aspect of the Pub is that kids are allowed in there all night and are free to wander between the pub and games room which are ajoined. The games room has three acrade machines, a table football game, tennis table and a TV room.

Pooley Bridge is not too far for a meal with the family with 4 pubs in the village. The Brackenrigg Inn on the way to the site is great serving a cold pint of Strongbow with fab views, but be warned they don't allow the kids in for a meal.

This site certainly lives up to its name and I cannot fault the peace and quiet, we even turned off the portable fridge late at night because the gentle hum was becoming a nuisance. I did hear a noisy dog on one night so I am assuming dogs were allowed on site.

They have a small friendly shop on site selling the basics and this campsite is perfect for those that love hiking and exploring the Northern Lakes. Windermere is 20 miles away but there is plenty to see and do locally to this site.

I would return to the Lakes tomorrow if I could but I would choose a site with a view next time and possibly a pub serving food a little nearer by.

Visited this site with my wife. We had a great week here lots of good weather and some great walks from the Campsite, especially recommend the walk to Aira Force water falls. Don't believe the hype on their web site though, it's along way from the best site in Britain and the olde worlde pub is more car boot than quaint and stinks a bit too. The 15 minute walk to the pub at the bottom of the hill is well worth it (better choice of beer too!). If you want a flat pitch that keeps sunlight past 6.00 in the summer go for electrical hook-up near the bottom of the hill. Also the showers were a bit temperamental and didn't really work on two out of the six mornings. Was very peaceful though would give it 6.5 out of 10!.

Spent an enjoyable week at The Quiet Site. Arrived on Saturday afternoon and the campsite was very busy, only a couple of pitches left, we were allocated a pitch next to the Gate which was a long way from the toilet block. One word of warning, this site is not level and the walk to the toilets can be quite long and uphill!!
The site is well run and friendly, a new couple has begun working there, called Vicky and Pete I believe.
Can recommend the Theakstons best bitter in the 'Olde Worlde' bar.
The site lives up to its name on weekdays but weekends can be busy.
Booking is highly recommended for weekends. Great area, lovely walks and great scenery.
Recommended.

Lovely site, great walks and superb kid play area. Great on-site pub with real log fire and games/tv room for kids. I will be back here again.

This is a family run site aimed at families and couples. Bar is excellent and the adventure playground is set in its own playfield. We have been going for 12 years. Services are clean and hot water is free... Small shop etc
