Camping pods at the Quiet Site, Ullswater
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 very 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.
About the Quiet Site:
The Quiet Site is a family-run site situated in a secluded position amongst the stunning fells that overlook Lake Ullswater.
This is a superbly maintained and very picturesque site, the facilities being housed mainly in old converted farm buildings.
There are many beautiful walks that you can start from right outside the Quiet Site and numerous activities and attractions a very short drive away.
The site is in an ideal position for touring both the North and South Lakes by car.
We are easily accessible from the M6, jct 40 and the charming market town of Penrith, both of which are only 7 miles away.
It's not surprising that 80% of our visitors have stayed with us before.
