The Quiet Site Reviews

The Quiet Site 5/5 5 stars

This campsite is a fantastic place to unwind in a very quiet and secluded area, the facilities here are excellent and so are the views. HOWEVER!!!
Despite the facilities, views etc... I would never use this campsite ever gain on priciple. On arrival at the site I asked if there were any vacancies I was told by the lady in the shop that there were. At this point a gentleman who I assumed to be the campsite owner intervened and asked for the make up of the party when I told him it was seven adults, all couples he said that there was no vacancies. Literally one minute later my friend and his partner were told there were vacancies and that our party of seven was welcome to stay. On seeing that I was in their party the owner intervened yet again and said that I was not welcome. Not satisfied with this I Challenged the owner as to why I was not welcome on his site when I had used the site before. I was then informed that he could not handle a group of young people if we were drunk or making a noise. I explained that we were a group of experienced fell walkers with no intentions of getting drunk or making noise and that we were here like to enjoy the peace and quiet just like everybody else.
After much reasoning and negotiation we were allowed to stay at the campsite subject to a £20 noise pollution deposit per tent. Through the persuasion of the rest of the party I reluctantly agreed to pay the fee and accept this unreasonable compromise.
This deposit was refunded the following day. I felt this was double standards as I was kept awake for much of the night by dogs barking and found out to my disgust that none of the neighbouring tents on the campsite had been asked to pay a £20 noise deposit. This incident ruined the first day of my weekend and left me and my party short of cash for the weekend.
However, despite reaching a compromise I am still not satisfied at being prejudged and embarrassed by a complete stranger for no reason other than because of my age and appearance. I am a Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme Assessor and a civilian instructor for the Air Training Corps with ten years membership to the rambler's association. Mountaineering, walking and camping has been my main passion in life since I was eight years old, and never before have I been made to feel so small by a landowner.
I shall therefore ensure that this campsite is never used by the duke of Edinburgh’s award scheme or the Durham/Northumberland region of the Air Training Corps again or until we have atleast recieved an apology from the owner for the manner in which we were treated.

This is a top park for families and couples. The bar is the best i have ever been in, the adventure playground is a kids paradise and the site is very well run, full marks...

The Quiet Site

I have visited this campsite twice and would strongly recommend it to couples with families the name of the site says it all quiet, picturesque, with a huge play area and wooden adventure playground ideal for children of all ages. To end the day you can spend the evening in the olde worlde bar which was originally a converted barn. There is also a games room below for the children whilst the adults relax, which does not take a lot of doing in the warm and comfortable atmosphere.
