The Quiet Site

The Quiet Site

Ullswater, Bennett Head, CA11 0LS

The Quiet Site is an award-winning, carbon-neutral holiday park set amongst the stunning fells that overlook Ullswater.

The venue offers full amenities and numerous accommodation options including quirky and cosy hobbit holes (pictured), cottages, glamping cabins, camping pods and pitches for motorhomes, caravans and tents.

The site is designed to minimise its impact on the local environment and the owners are keen advocates for protecting the fabulous dark skies against light pollution. As such they have installed dark sky friendly lighting across their resort to ensure visitors can enjoy the starry skies!


Stay & gaze - this location benefits from dark skies, relatively low levels of light pollution, is astronomy friendly and suitable for stargazing breaks. If you visit and find that the location is not dark sky friendly please let us know!
