Seated children at The Quiet Site

Popular parenting forum Mumsnet has recognised The Quiet Site in the Lake District as the best overall glamping site in the UK for families.

The award-winning holiday park has a selection of accommodation offerings, including pitches for caravans, motorhomes, campervans and tents.

Overlooking Ullswater, The Quiet Site is in the perfect location for exploring the surrounding area and making the most of being in the countryside.

With an emphasis on tranquillity and eco credentials, visitors can take advantage of a number of on-site facilities.

These include a zero-waste shop, pub and snack bar, as well as a playroom set up with table football, air hockey and pool tables to keep the kids entertained.

They can run free in the play field, making friends with other families and there’s laundry facilities and dedicated boot and bike washrooms to deal with any muddy kit at the end of the day.

Not far from the site is the imposing ruin of Lowther Castle, which boasts a huge children’s playground.

Then there’s the Puzzling Place World of Illusion, where you can experience an anti-gravity room and hologram gallery.

Head to the Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery to soak up some culture, and if you’re visiting between June 25th and September 10th, you’ll catch the Once Upon a Planet exhibition.

Focusing on climate change, this family-friendly event looks at how plants and animals are being affected by manmade pollution.

Being located so close to Ullswater, The Quiet Site also offers lots of opportunities to get out on the water.

Active types can enjoy stand-up paddleboarding, while the Ullswater Steamer stops off at points all around the lake, allowing passengers to embark and disembark.

The Quiet Site still has availability for the summer holidays, making it an ideal choice for a staycation.
