The Quiet Site
Experience Life in a Hobbit Hole…
Our new Hobbit Holes are large underground living spaces with an amazing view over the Ullswater valley. They are superbly insulated, energy efficient, secure and virtually invisible unless you know where to look … hobbits like to blend into the local scenery! They are four times larger than a standard Camping Pod and are therefore suitable for larger families or those wanting a little more in the way of space and facilities.
The generous space is ideal for family living. The interior is 15m square and can accommodate up to 2 adults and 4 children. Inside there is a bench, table, heater, bin, lights, plugs and USB charge sockets. A large soft covered sleep ledge (3m x 2m) covers one end. There is also a small toilet and wash basin in each Hobbit Hole.
Outside is a large covered patio with a magnificent view over to the lake and fells beyond. The sheltered patio area – providing a flat area suitable for portable BBQs – allows you to cook, admire the view and yet stay dry when the weather is less than its perfect self. A picnic table enables a real inside/outside living experience.
All you need to bring is your camping gear – minus the tent – and take advantage of all the facilities on offer on site. With no tent to erect or pack away, your holiday could just have become a whole lot less stressful.
Dogs are welcome in some of our Hobbit Holes. Please specify when booking.
What does it cost? One night will cost from £65 to £90 per night for up to 2 adults and up to 4 children.
Experience camping in a Pod…
The Pod is a timber built, insulated hut designed to be used just like a tent but unlike a tent it is already set up on the site, ready for you to move in! With no tent to erect or pack away in the rain your holiday could just have become a lot less stressful.
They are manufactured by a small firm in the south lakes and are the inspiration of a man known only as Ian. Some say he has a slightly pointy head. Each Pod has plenty of headroom and a floor area of 2.3 metres by 2.7 metres – ample space for 2 people or even 2 adults and 2 small children.
The Pod is designed to accommodate the variable British weather with ample ventilation for the hot days and lamb’s wool insulation for those chillier times – a wooden ‘tent’ for all seasons. A Pod offers a higher level of security than a canvas tent.
The Quiet Site Pods are a simple progression from the holiday under canvas; they offer a convenient alternative to the tent but retain all the ambiance of the ‘camping holiday’.
All you need to bring is your camping gear – minus the tent. The Pods are completely empty on arrival. They have a carpeted floor and a light wood interior. Those staying in a Pod can take advantage of all the other site facilities. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept dogs in the Pods, sorry.
What does it cost? One night’s Pod camping costs from £35 to £60 per Pod.
Experience camping in a Bell Tent…
Bell Tents are well made, water proof, good looking but most importantly, they are already up when you arrive! With no tent to erect or pack away your holiday could just have become a lot less stressful.
Each Bell Tent has plenty of headroom and ample space for up to 2 adults and 4 children. The Bell Tents are designed to accommodate the variable British weather with ample ventilation for the hot days. All you need to bring is your camping gear – minus the tent. The Bell Tents are completely empty on arrival. Those staying in Bell Tents can take advantage of all the other site facilities. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept dogs in the Bell Tents, sorry.
