The family glamping 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.

Family Pods are suitable for couples or camilies 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.

"Immaculate and well run site"

From when you first arrive at reception the welcome you get is second to none. The reception staff are fabulous. They make you feel like you are their number one priority. Secondly, the shower and toilet building WOW!!! So clean, immaculate, top of the league shower facilities, spotless!!! There are hair dryers in this building which come complimentary which is a welcoming change compared to all other campsites we've been on. The showers are free too. Again you have to pay on other sites. Their standards are extremely high and you can't but respect this during your stay. Mags and John do a fabulous job in keeping the cleanliness of these facilities extremely high. In all our times of camping/glamping/staying in lodges, we've never seen a site which holds this kind of high standard before. Even during our stay, Mags popped over to chat to us to make sure that everything was ok. Which was a very nice touch. To summarise everything up there is no other site we would go to in the Lake district. We always speak highly of Hillcroft to our family and our friends and 'go on' about how fabulous it is to stay there. Thank you to ALL THE STAFF. You ALL do a great job every time!! Yours respectfully. Mrs and Mr Beckley. Liverpool.

"My stay in a Pod"

Ms V Gwilliam - Stayed Sep 2019

My first time stay in a Pod. Never camped before. I wish that a bed had been included & a few more hooks in the Pod. The weather didn’t help. Love the area. Will use a static next time. Lovely clean site & toilet/ shower facilities.

"Excellent 2 day break"

Mrs L Davies - Stayed with partner, Sep 2019

We chose Hillcroft as we have been here previously 2 or 3 years ago. Excellent new toilet and shower block. The staff, all staff, were so friendly and helpful. We were offered a pod with underfloor heating, another bonus. The grounds were very well kept. The weather was good, it's a short walk into pooley bridge for a meal or a drink or a walk round the lake. We had to take the diverted route coming from the north as the new bridge is being constructed. We didn't actually know you could get to pooley bridge this way and it was just as quick for us as going the usual way. A thoroughly enjoyable couple of days at Hillcroft and we will definitely be returning.

"Chill Out"

Mrs K Octon - Stayed with partner, Aug 2019

Absolutely love this camp site, the wash facilities are second to none, even when very busy at the August Bank Holiday! The site is visited a couple of times a week by a fish and chip van and they are divine and so is the sausage van too.

We stayed in one of the family pods...this was the first time we have done glamping and it was very comfortable. There was enough space on the raised decking area to place a table and 4 chairs. You have lights, a heater, and 2 plugs inside, a little window, there are 2 doors that open outwards that are glass and a roller blind curtain, there was good space to put bags and our 4 blow up beds. The wash/shower toilet facilities were excellent and just a short stroll. It seemed to be always being cleaned, so immaculate. Staff were friendly and noticed that my 2 children could not reach the taps or soap dispenser, she said something they have not thought about, but always looking to improve things, she said she would inform the office, and maybe some little step stools would help with this. The park is walking distance to Pooley Bridge, where there are 3 good pubs, restaurant, cafe, shops. There is a shop on site, and they have the fish and chip van and sausage van come to the park for breakfast and dinner while we were there. We would definitely return.
