A sustainably-driven holiday park has got itself to the national finals of a small business awards ceremony. 

The Quiet Site, located in Ullswater, which offers carbon-neutral glamping, camping and luxury cottages, will be going through to the final of the FSBs Environmental/Sustainability Award, after claiming the award for the North-West region. 

This is no new feat for the accommodation hotspot, considering they also scooped the award last year.

Owner Daniel Holder, from London, who bought the holiday park 20 years ago, said it 'fantastic' to be able to be selected two years in a row. 

"In terms of sustainability awards, there's never a bad one to win, so it's always welcomed good news," he said. 

But being recognised for its efforts doesn't mean the venue has concluded its trailblazing efforts. 

"Good sustainable practices are so often good business practices as well. 

"We're just opening phase two of our Gingerbread house development, a complete energy positive accommodation - for us that's really exciting and also very fun to stay in. 

"We also opened a sustainable takeaway hut in the accommodation last year, which specialises in crepes and pizzas.

"We're hoping to be generating at about 70 per cent of our own energy this year and with the way fuel costs are, that's not a bad thing," he said. 

Daniel has brought his experience as an electrical engineer with a specialism in lithium battery design to the site's forefront leading the way on many of their innovative projects.

The Quiet Site will go on to the finals held in Glasgow on May 19, at the Raddison Blu Hotel, with high-profile hosts Clare Balding and JJ Chalmers presenting the awards to the victors. 

"My first job when I left school was for Clare Balding's uncle, Toby Balding, so I'll certainly have plenty to say if we get to go on stage. 

"I remember Clare as a little girl, it was a very long time ago, but hopefully there's a story to be told if we do win," he said.
