Holiday Parks with Wellness Facilities

The Quiet Site in Cumbria, is one of England’s top Holiday Parks with Wellness Facilities. It was recently named as the overall holiday park winner in this year’s Visit England Awards, says that “wellness” will be among the new features it has planned.

The Ullswater holiday park, said Visit England judges, fully deserved first place thanks to its outstanding facilities, amazing range of accommodation, and care for the environment.

Dedicated Wellness Holiday Park Facilities

Now the family-run business says it intends to add a wellness vibe to its facilities with the creation of a centre dedicated to helping guests benefit both their minds and bodies.

It will include classes focused on yoga and Pilates, and training on fresh-air exercise equipment.

Daniel Holder, who runs The Quiet Site with his wife Anne and their son George, said that the holiday parks with wellness facilities are likely to have a special appeal to many customers:

“Almost nine out of ten of our bookings are either repeat visitors or here as a result of a personal recommendation – and many guests share similar holiday preferences,” said Daniel.

Enjoying Tranquil and Beautiful holiday park surroundings

“Tranquil and beautiful surroundings are often a priority, and so too is somewhere to stay which has all home comforts, and is additionally both memorable and perhaps a bit quirky.

“We hope we will now be able to add to their experience by offering wellness facilities and different ways to improve physical and mental wellbeing in this glorious setting,” said Daniel.

Among existing guest facilities are an award-winning bar-in-a-barn dating from 1680, pizzeria and creperie, a zero waste park shop, and free high-speed wi-fi.

Eclectic Range of Holiday Accommodation

Daniel acquired the park in 2000 as a simple camping field with sweeping views across Ullswater, and has since added an eclectic range of high quality accommodation options:

They include underground Glamping Burrows, cabins and timber pods plus energy-positive Gingerbread Houses. There are also touring pitches for tents, touring caravans and motorhomes.

The Quiet Site’s many awards over the years include environmental accolades for its care of the natural world, and tourist board recognitions for its high quality standards.

Wellness Holidays meets Sustainable Development

A few years ago, it also became the first park in Britain to win the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development, and is now permitted to fly the Queen’s Award flag.

But Daniel said that this year’s top England for Excellent award had a special significance:

“As well as assessing the quality of our facilities, a major part of the judging criteria is the quality of the hospitality which we provide to holiday guests.

“Maintaining a friendly and welcoming atmosphere here has always been an important priority, and so we owe a big debt of gratitude to our team for helping us deliver this,” said Daniel.
