The site overlooks Ullswater and offers a range of hardstanding pitches, tent pitches and camping pods. The hardstanding pitches come with electric hook-ups, as do all tent pitches in two fields with excellent views and easy access to amenities. Furthermore, the glamping burrows nestle guests underground. With bathrooms, the glamping pods also have covered patios and seating areas for visitors to enjoy. For something more low-key, The Quiet Site also offer a selection of camping pods and bell tents. The pods have decking, lighting and spaces to charge devices. Similarly, the bell pods also have charging stations.

The Quiet Site is perfectly located to enjoy Ullswater to the fullest. The site is equipped with its own shop, games room and pub for visitors to enjoy everyday. Additionally, a circular 8-mile hiking route passes through the site and takes guests through to sights such as Aira Force, and access to Helvellyn and Blencathra. The Ullswater Way also takes visitors around the entirety of the lake with access to the various steamers that can take you out onto the water itself. Furthermore, various historic points of interest are never too far away. For example, Lowther Castle is just a 20 minute drive away.
