 A well kept site with excellent washroom facilities run by very friendly staff.

There is a small shop were you can buy ‘zero waste’ goods - just buy what you need and a welcoming pub with a roaring fire.

In the morning you can also have breakfast from the Quiet Bite and later in the day, a pizza. We tried both which were excellent.

With walks and cycle rides direct from the site, we had an enjoyable couple of days and wished we could have stayed longer.

 We stayed with other members of our family,

A nice friendly site which accommodates a variety of camping units,

Modern toilet block which are unisex. Inside the toilet block has been divided into separate en-suites each comprising of a toilet, shower and wc.

Only problem not enough with queues each morning and if you only wanted a shave or just use the toilet big problem! As apart from a small unisex older block with only two toilets and one urinal you are left to queue and hope for best.

Need to invest in children play area as it seems everywhere is taken up by a camping unit.

Nice pub on site but now to small for the expanded site.

 Well the site lives up to its name. Very quiet.

The facilities are as good as you’ll find on any good camp site and very well looked after. Dog & boot showers which a lot of sites don’t offer.

A dog safe field just over the road, most welcome. A small shop for essentials.

A snack bar offering breakfasts tea and later on pizzas made in a wood fired oven, delicious.

There’s a real friendly bar, with well priced ales and bar snacks.

The only glitch for me is the EHU. It’s only 6A so you need to be careful what you switch on otherwise it’s ‘lights out’ when you least expect it. 🤷‍♂️.

That is the only negative thing I can say about it. It won’t stop me from going back through, as all in all it’s still a great site.

 A lovely site that’s well kept. There was a sign in the toilet/shower block saying it’s due to be upgraded in late 2022 but it seemed pretty good to me - very clean and I’ve been on sites with far worse facilities.

We were only staying for one night on our way to Scotland but it was lovely to be able to go for a walk straight from site, especially as it was gloriously sunny the afternoon we arrived.

I notice some people complaining that the site was too dark at night and not much for teenagers to do but surely they’ve missed the whole ethos of the site - it’s partly in the name “The Quiet Site”!

I wouldn’t expect a truly rural site like this to have lighting and, as a camper would always bring a torch. We loved the peacefulness of it and the owls hooting.

It’s definitely a site we’d use again as it’s a very quick drive from the M6 at Penrith yet overlooking Ullswater.

My only complaint would be of our neighbours who had also clearly missed the point of the name of the site and hadn’t read the site rules saying “if your neighbours can hear your music, it’s too loud”. They clearly thought we’d all like R2 blaring into our vans too! As we were leaving that morning it seemed petty to complain but it certainly ruined the peacefulness over breakfast

 We travelled here as part of a gift experience and stayed in one of the hobbit huts.

We have a campervan so this was slightly different to our normal visit to a campsite.

The reception area and staff were welcoming and a member of staff showed us to our hut. Inside it was warm as it has an electric heater.

Car parking wasn’t adjacent to the hut but we were allowed to park closer for unloading our car.

Overall it’s a nice site with good views over the lake and to the mountains beyond. The site has a lot of eco credentials which is good.

There’s a bar open at night which has had an old barn feel to it. One night there was live singer.

The pizzas at the kiosk are very good, having been made in a wood oven.

There’s a camper kitchen with toaster, microwave, fridge and freezer.

The only negative point is that the shower block is a little further from the hut that I’d like and the shower block could do with an upgrade.

There are signs up saying the toilets are being upgraded though.

Would visit again in our campervan.

 The site is in a stunning location with views over Ullswater. The facilities on site are very well kept and the pitches are all level.

The Ullswater Way walking trail is a few minutes walk from the site.

The site has a play area, small shop, a pub with log fire and local beers, and during high season a hut that sells breakfast rolls in the morning and pizzas in the evening.

We made good use of all of these with the kids enjoying the pizzas and the adults enjoying the local Ullswater Blonde ale!

The weather during our trip was 'mixed' as you'd expect in the Lake District so we also used the dog and boot wash which was very handy.

 Stayed a couple of night on the hobbit hole I’d say it was an ok experience, the concept is great except it lacks a few things.

Firstly, it should have provision for a small kitchen at least, second, it should have a shower, thirdly, no TV at this day and age? No entertainment at night?

The holiday site lacks proper lighting at night that you have to bring your own torch to navigate in the dark.

The communal shower have hot water but lacks cold water when showering which makes it awfully hot causing headache if you insist on washing your head.

Otherwise the view fantastic and it lives with its reputation as the quite place.

The staff fantastic and helpful too bad the lack of facilities ruined it for me.

 Nice clean easy going modern eco site well maintained with very welcoming young helpful staff. Large private hard standing fully serviced pitches, so large in fact our water mains adaptor or waste pipe wasn't long enough. Helpful staff came to the rescue with extra hose and waste pipe.

Obviously during these strange times the site was very busy and we found ourselves wishing they'd built the shower block a little bigger in order to cope with demand from the people in tents and lodges. Also the wifi and 3G struggled with demand a little at peak times.

The site is on quite a steep hill so the kids were rocketing down on scooters and bikes to get to the play area. Then having to push them back up the hill to get home. There is no one way system or speed bumps for cars and I have to say it's an accident waiting to happen unfortunately.

Play area for kids is huge with tunnels, a fort, trees to climb and rope swings. My youngest is 7 and she would leave the 'van after breakfast and come back when she was hungry absolutely filthy. She had the best time. My eldest who is 13 did not however. The pokey games room is terrible with just air hockey for £1 a go, table football and a pool table. Nowhere for teens to hang out sort of thing.

Quality kiosk serving pancakes and bacon barms etc in the morning followed by pizzas in the evening. Barn converted into a cosy pub but with only two local lagers and a cider on when we visited.

Nice big enclosed dog walk opposite the site and one beautiful off the lead walk to Aira Falls and back. Didn't visit the local pub as it was a walk along the roads or through fields. If you need supplies Pooley bridge is a 10 min drive or Penrith is only about 20 mins away.

There isn't a village nearby with a shop, pub etc to walk to unfortunately. If it had that this site would be somewhere we would visit every year without fail.

But overall it's a well run site, can recommend.

Reviewer: Harriot64 5 reviews from this member

 Access to the site for inexperienced caravan owners will be difficult, unless you have a mover fitted, positioning a caravan on the pitches is not easy,

Toilet areas were poorly maintained and lighting around the site was negligible, take a torch.

Pitch fees are expensive for very little in return. The takeaway is expensive and in our opinion not very good.

Not a site we would recommend, there are much better sites in the area.

Very clean, kept well and stunning views.
