Located at the head of stunning Lake Ullswater your will find Hillcroft Park.  The location is second to none with a peaceful feel and yet only a 10 minute stroll from the quaint town of Pooley Bridge which offers shops and 3 village pubs.  The famous Ullswater Steamers are also within a short walking distance from the park.

Just some of the activities available in the area include walking, cycling and sailing so this park is ideally suited to those who enjoy outdoor pursuits and getting close to nature.  For the ultimate flying experience why not try Hot Air Ballooning - a once in a lifetime activity available just a short drive from the site.

Away from the park the nearby Rheged Visitor Centre at Penrith provides an innovative underground visitor centre on seven levels including a showcase of shops restaurants and a six storey high cinema screen. 

The accommodation on the park provides a cosy and stylish base for your stay.  Choose from the luxury Hillcroft Lodge, new in 2010 or the Meadow Bank Cottage which is a modern ground floor cottage.  Both the lodges and cottage sleep 4 and are well equipped for a self catering holiday.  We love the Meadow Bank Cottage which has fantastic views of Lake Ullswater and a lovely open plan living space.

Our Top Tip
"The Sun Inn Public House in nearby Pooley Bridge is walking distance from the park and serves good quality and great value pub food."

Fun Days Out in Cumbria & The Lakes

Lake District Wildlife Park

Both children and adults will enjoy a day out here where you can see over 100 species of animals including Zebras and Antelope.  At set times you can go an see Birds of Prey flying displays as well as Zoo Keeper Presentations which are educational as well as fun. If the weather is not on your side then you can make the most of the indoor heated play area and modern cafe.  Located at Coalbeck Farm in Cumbria we think this is a must for families...

Ullswater Steamers

A trip to Cumbria wouldn't be complete without a cruise on the lake and what better way to do this than on an Ullswater Steamer.  Ullswater is widely regarded as the most beautiful of all of the lakes in the area.  This award winning attraction has been in business for 150 years and currently has four vessels operating Ullswater lake cruises.  A further option is to combine a lake cruise with some of the most breathtaking walks in the area.

Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery

Described as the number one attraction in Carlisle this place makes a fantastic day out for all the family.  Suitable for all weathers you can take in interesting exhibitions and enjoy interactive fun.  Lookout for special events which take place at various times of year such as Easter weekend and summer holidays. Open daily all year round.

Lakeland's Wildlife Oasis
Lakeland's Wildlife Discovery Centre is the perfect place for a fun day out which is also educational. The unique centre offers visitors the chance to explore many species of exotic wildlife through interactive 'hands-on' displays. These clever displays travel through 3,000 million years of evolution from the development of life on Earth. The centre is home to some of the world's most threatened species and plays an important role in international breeding.

We had a perfect few days at hillcroft. Although we often come to pooley bridge, this was our first stay at hillcroft. I was very impressed with the site. Tarmaced roads are a bonus and the whole site was peaceful and immaculate.

Fabulous cottage at a fabulous location. FYI we have stayed here before, however the cottage has had a welcome face-lift. The new inclusion of a real fire was an added bonus.
Looking forward to returning as soon as the fates allow it!

Jane
Stayed in the retreat lodge. It was lovely. Great view from living room and hot tub. Very clean and modern. Would definitely stay again.
Michael
We really enjoyed our holiday lodge. The site was very clean and tidy. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. We will visit again. Thank you very much hillcroft park.
Susan
As a family we would highly recommend Hillcroft Park. We stayed in Meadow Bank Cottage the view from the hot tub was amazing - the garden area was set out to provide privacy but still managed to provide uninterrupted views. The cottage was very well equipt (tea,coffee,sugar, salt, pepper and plenty of bin bags/dishwasher tablets etc) these items often sadly lacking at holiday parks. The staff were friendly and helpful and always seemed happy. This is a family run business, the family seemed to be very involved with the day to day running and very approachable. Unfortunately my husband was in a lot of pain during our stay due to a displaced disc in his back - this meant that we were unable to fully explore the area, we will definitely return as soon as his health improves to discover the beautiful countryside.
Robert
Lovely clean caravan. The site and surroundings were well kept. Nice and peaceful.

Great location. Perfect for dogs. Lodge was clean, tidy with all u need for cooking etc. Only issue was the TV screen was way to small to watch on the rainy nites. Will be going again.
Gareth
Outstanding
Katherine
The lodge we stayed in was immaculate and was fantastic to get complimentary milk, tea, coffee and biscuits. The staff were very helpful and friendly, as were the other holiday makers. Hillcroft is in a beautiful spot and great to be so close to the village. I can't wait to visit again!
