The camping pods at Hillcroft Park are the perfect location for glamping near Lake Ullswater in the Lake District. Owned and operated by the Heath Family, the award-winning Hillcroft Park sits above the pretty lakeside village of Pooley Bridge.

Hillcroft Park boasts one of the most stunning locations of any UK holiday park and you are sure to have an unforgettable glamping holiday here.

Designed to meet the needs of holiday makers who appreciate the peace and tranquillity found in this part of the world, Hillcroft Park provides an ever-changing landscape that is simply breathtaking throughout the year.

Camping Pods are suitable for couples or families of up to 3 adults and 2 Children. They are equipped with a light, heater and are carpeted, however, you are required to bring your own bedding (i.e. air beds, pillows, sleeping bags, blankets, etc.) and other accessories as you would if you were camping. Think of it as going camping, but we provide you with a glamping pod rather than a tent.

We love what we do and work hard to go that extra mile for our guests. Providing the best facilities with a personal touch, we’ve an onsite shop that sells a good range of local produce and everyday staples plus a play area with outdoor table tennis and football tables. There is a dedicated laundry room and a drying room.

We are lucky enough to be located in the beautiful Ullswater Valley and there are a multitude of walks for all levels and abilities in the area. A recent addition to the list is the Ullswater Way – a 20 mile circular walking route around the lake. The route can be walked in either direction and from any starting point.

This was our first visit/stay at Hillcroft Park and overall we were very satisfied with the well presented camp/touring site. On the day of our arrival we received a call to notify them what time we would approximately be arriving so that they were available. Once we arrived at the site the staff we very helpful, friendly and informative, providing us with all of the key information we needed for our stay and locating within the site. The site itself is in a ideal location for dog walkers, with scenic routes not far away and some lovely pubs in Pooley Bridge, a short walk or drive away. The dog shower area was also a lovely touch, especially for muddy adventures. When using the toilet and shower facilities these were always clean, well presented and pleasant to be in. The sound effects of nature in the toilets was a lovely special touch to making them feel tranquil and welcoming. We will definitely be returning again in summer to explore more of the site and Lake District. Thank you!

"Great site!"

G Dobson - Stayed with friends, Nov 2022

Booked a basic camping pod for three of us, Friday- Sunday. It did not disappoint, heating, lighting inside & out, sockets, carpeted & very very cosy! Exactly as described on their website.

It did not disappoint, heating, lighting inside & out, sockets, carpeted & very very cosy! Exactly as described on their website. It was spotlessly clean inside with a lovely wooden balcony outside, all set within a beautiful countryside location. The shower block, toilets, washbasins were 5* & I have never been to such a high standard facility of this kind. A quirky feature recorded bird song, sheep & dog noises playing within this block!! :-) Location is perfect with a short walk to Pooley Bridge, swim in Ullswater & longer walks to Aira Force Falls & Glenridding. Staff extremely friendly & helpful. Thank you for a smashing stay 👌🏼

"Always A Good Stay"

The pods are fantastic, we’ve not yet done the mega pods with the toilets and beds built in. We prefer the older ones so we can bring all of our own set up. Pod 17 had a lovely new carpet which made a massive difference this time of year (October) we were offered another pod as 17 hadn’t been cleaned out on arrival, it was pod 13 which is a pet friendly pod. We said it would be fine but the smell of dog was overwhelming. I’m sure it’s fine for dog lovers and wouldn’t bother most but not for us. We were moved back to 17 after the wardens got it ready for us. Reception always friendly, wardens always chatty and facilities and close proximity to village is great. If they’d sell me pod17 I’d buy it and keep it as a base here forever! Oh and Saucy Sausage was on site for pizza night and bacon buns in the morning. Amazing

Accommodation was spotless as were the superb facilities and we were greeted by an extremely warm and friendly member of the team at the park. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, taking in a couple of the walks just outside of the site. Only a couple of things I would recommend that would make this site untouchable in comparison to other sites. One would be a small communal room with cooking facilities as when we stayed the weather was dreadful on the first day and as we were staying in a camping pod, cooking was a bit difficult as you cannot cook inside the pods. Secondly in the shower block, although it's out of this world, it's missing some small hooks near the washing sinks to hang your top or towel on, a small detail but essential. Anybody staying on this site will definitely not be disappointed and I'm certain we will be returning very soon.

We loved the site and stayed in a pod. Facilities overall were excellent, and clean. The only slight gripe I had was the dishwashing facilities were not very clean and lots of food waste left in the sinks. More bins in that area could help, and a polite sign to guide users to clear up after themselves, respecting the facilities provided Will definitely return though

This is a good campsite, the camping pod we stayed in was spacious and clean, we particularly liked the little veranda which allowed us to keep our dogs contained within the hut area. It is an easy walk into Pooley Bridge. The toilet / shower block is very good, even though the site is large there were always facilities available to use. It is a large and popular site, so expect some noise, however most of the groups around us were families with children and we weren't disturbed after 11pm.
