We had a look around the site when it was closed and decided to splash out on a service pitch due to the lovely views you would have from the lounge of your caravan. We asked if we could go on the pitch nose first to face the views and the lady behind reception said no you have to back on the pitch which ment the back of your unit would be facing the views, so we booked a pitch opposite. On arrival we went to reception and the lady behind the counter was on the phone and didn't make any eye contact with us whatsoever. We appeared to be unnoticed for a whole 10 minutes until another lady came in and booked us in. When we got to the pitch we had booked we noticed the caravans behind us above us were all facing forward looking at the views. As you can imagine we were not very happy about this as we were told we couldn't do that. So off to reception we went and complained asking why those caravans were facing the views and we couldn't. She said those pitches were seasonal but they shouldn't be like that and they will be empty but when the people return they will be told to turn them round so the backs of their caravans are facing forward to the views. So we went back and set up and settled down but looking on their website we noticed the same two caravans that were facing out to the view behind us were in the same position on the website photo, so the lady wasn't being at all truthful and two days before we left one of the seasonal occupants arrived and the caravan was not turned around. So does this mean that rules for seasonals are different than for those that are touring? It seems silly having pitches overlooking a lovely view and having to put the back end of your caravan looking out to it so you're facing the caravans over the road. It's like a warden at a site with a sea view saying that you can't face it you have to position the back of your caravan towards it. This is the only reason why we won't be going back....Read less.

Site is fantastic and would recommend to others. Unfortunately the hard standing pitch flooded in parts BUT once mentioned to staff they did their upmost to rectify the problem by laying extra gravel on the pitch also offered to help us move to a new pitch if we wanted to. Having only two nights left of our stay we declined the offer to move. The warden Mark (nice bloke) was very helpful and apologised for the unfortunate flooding. New toilet block better than some 5 star hotels we’ve stayed in. Will definitely return....Read less.

High quality site with all the facilities. Well laid out and caters for all types of holiday from tents to holiday homes. The activities seem good although we visited in April so not all were being used. Walking distance of Pooley Bridge and the Ullswater steamer quayside. Also close to Sharrow Bay hotel which has good restaurant and does great afternoon teas with fabulous views over Ullswater.

Access at entrance to site is much too narrow and could dangerous due to abrupt incline from road, however it seems as though this issue may be in the process of being addressed....Read less.

We have stayed here several times, we liked it when you just parked up in the field on what is a working farm, it was a bit of a hike to the toilet block. However, the improvements are amazing. Last season saw the opening of the super pitches, they are huge and have water and drainage, great to not have to cart along the barrel etc. The new toilet block was under construction. So we were eager to try the new toilet block this season and weren’t disappointed. It’s modern, spacious with good showers and loved the unique sound effects. Also, there are extra super pitches and lots of pitches in the original field now have hard standing. It never feels overcrowded and is a fantastic base if you like walking.

This is the second time we have stayed at Hill Croft Park and we really enjoyed it. We stay here as we like that the pubs and shops are near by and all within walking distance. The Grounds of the park are well kept and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

This time we brought our trailer tent which was a bad idea given the poor weather. After 4 hours of trying to set it up in the snow we gave up.

When I called reception, they offered us a family pod. We felt this was very kind and nothing was too much trouble. We had the keys to the pod within 5 minutes. The pod was next to the toilets and we like how near the toilets are to all of the campers. The toilets and showers were amazing and very warm.

We were a little disappointed that there was not a games room and we feel the park would benefit from a small pub/entertainment area.

We are planning to stay again next year with friends.

From arrival to departure our experience at Hillcroft as been absolutely positive. Highly recommend to try this beautiful very well situated & extremely clean facilities. Obviously slot of hard work on the new shower/laundry facilities. The pitches are a very good size with fantastic views.

Probably the only suggestion I would make is maybe a helping hand could be on offer or available incase of difficultly in pitching the caravan. My husband recently had a back operation & unfortunately our motor movers were not working , (& we didn’t want to cancel the weekend planned at Hillcroft with the part not arriving in time to fix MM)

On other local sites at Keswick which we frequent they always send a couple of their worked to see if any help is need to pitch the caravan , maybe something to think about at Hillcroft . Pooley Bridge is a absolutely hidden gem, with beautiful walks to quiet a good selection of eating/drinking establishments, along with the lovely gift shops. Very friendly people. Definitely on our return list . Thank you and wishing you all a successful season at Pooley Bridge.

We booked to stay here on a camping pitch at the beginning of November, so needed electricity.

On arrival we saw the camping pods and decided to see if we could upgrade to one as it was really cold and raining. The very friendly staff did this for us with no problem whatsoever.

We had a great stay with only the one downside, it being that I don't think the heater was working very well as , even tho I know it was a very cold night , it didn't seem to make much difference to the temperature inside , despite it being on all night. As it was very late when we got back to the pod after our night out we didn't have chance to say anything about it. But if you are reading this , it was pod 8

Overall we had a great stay and we would definitely come back

The new toilet block wasn't open and it was a fair trek to the old block. The new touring block is on two levels, we were allocated a pitch on the upper level. It was all gravel with no pitch markings and piles of rubble and bits of machinery scattered about. The surrounding grassy area had a lot of rubbish on it which was a bit problematic walking the dog. The service points look to have been put in the wrong way around. The water tap was virtually inaccessible due to the fence being too close. A water container was impossible to fill . These were on pitches B14-17.On the lower level B28 has the chemical toilet on it's corner, not pleasant sitting outside in the summer. The location and views are lovely and it will be nice when finished and the service points corrected. I would advise anyone to look at the site plan when booking and get a pitch away from the chemical toilet . There was hardly anyone in the pods and no campers but I imagine it will be very busy in high season....Read less.

I wasn't going to leave a review, but after I saw other reviews on the site I thought I would add to them!

It's a lovely location and normally quiet, only now a Hot Tub has been installed for a static caravan and its next to several of the camping pitches and it goes ALL NIGHT! the entire row of campers got kept awake by the thing 'humming' on and off through the night! some of us complained (myself twice!) and got told it would be dealt with but after 4 days it wasn't! and speaking to somebody who stayed the next week, it had not been sorted by then either!

Also, Ball games need banning on the camping fields! every single day our tent endured countless hours from 8am to 10pm of footballs being kicked against it! This has been a problem for years but never this bad! again, I told the staff and they said they would put up notices diverting ball gamers to the field specifically reserved for ball games!....yet again, this NEVER HAPPENED!

Sort these two main issues out and we will return, otherwise ourselves and several others will not!

On a small note the toilets were very clean and tidy except for one day when they didn't get touched so they ran out of toilet paper and got really quite unpleasant! as it was late evening and nobody was about we had to share with other campers our only toilet roll we brought with us! this is despite their cleaning records being signed three times that day as checked!!...Read less.

We stayed in the hobbit House which my 3 year old son loved from start to finish. The facilities were perfect for us with the hobbit House having plenty of room, a pull out bed, heater, sockets etc. The staff were very friendly and knowledgable of the local area giving directions to do food shopping and offering some savings on ullswater steamers. The shop onsite was stocked with the essentials and the park was very well maintained. Easy to navigate around and the pods / hobbit House was close to the facilities. The shower blocks were very clean but a little dated although this wasn't a problem as able to have a hot shower plenty of sinks mirrors although it wasn't busy during our stay. The play ground was geared to slightly older children and was abit boggy due to rain but didn't affect his enjoyment. The gate was broken and due to be fixed so didn't close at 8pm as it would normally but this wasn't an issue for us, some people may have felt this may be a concern security wise but an engineer was due out.

The only downside to this site was the wash facilities. They were really outdated and could do with modernising. My husband was in the end shower and when other people used the other showers the water flow in his reduced significantly. For a site this large the toilet facilities were far from adequate. From our pitch the toilets were quite a long walk and in the dark it wasn't very well lit. There was about a 3" drop at the side of tarmac road to the grass verge which really needs to be seen to as in the dark this is not visible which did result in me falling off it. To be fair they are in the process of building new toilet facilities at the top end of the site which when completed should improve the toilet situation. However the existing facilities really do need updating also. Overall the site was good and I would stay here again. It was only a very short walk into Pooley Bridge which was very convenient....Read less.

A well organised park with plenty of space. Very conveniently located next to Pooley Bridge with a nice selection of restaurants. The shower block was a little too far away from the touring pitches (strangely located in the middle of the statics which would presumably have a bathroom?) and the showers were becoming a little bit dated but were always very clean. There was a little building work going on near the touring pitches (which was not disruptive) so maybe this is already being addressed.

There is a lot to like about this site but I am not convinced that I would return. The showers, toilets & washing facilities were all excellent. Just a short stroll into Pooley Bridge but it's all up hill coming back & the entrance to the site is steep also. The main problem is that the majority of the pitches are sloping - this did cause a few problems. I have stayed at Parkfoot just down the road - although this is a busier site, it is a more pleasant walk along the lakeside into Pooley Bridge. Also, I think charging £6 extra for electric hook-up & £5 extra per adult is a bit steep - these extras usually cost about £3 at most sites that we have visited....Read less.

Arrivived Friday afternoon with friends.

Immediately told we weren't allowed to put our tents where we had put them due to fire safety. However we have been to this park before and never once have we been told not to put our tents in a social circle.

Anyhow we moved our tents so wasn't as close together, even though half of the site had there tents in some social circle, again I feel we were targeted!

Friday evening/Saturday morning 3am a tent across the field from us had music blasting and was making a lot of noise, yet never to be told to be quiet.

Saturday however we had some slight music on roughly 10/11pm was so quite that the man driving around did not hear it until we asked about having music on, to which his response was "you get that turned off now, it should be off before 10pm"

However the tent behind us had music on at the same time at a much louder volume. The security man took it upon himself to disobey the site rules and left that tent with loud music, this continued throughout the night with nobody commenting on that.

This all be said it is a lovely site however I believe we were targeted as soon as we arrived on site and did as we would do normally on every previous visit.

I will not be visiting this park again as it is now very unsocial and felt targeted from the outset!...Read less.

We arrived at Hillcroft Park and on first sight it seemed a nice well laid out site. We checked in for 8 nights and it seemed adequately friendly at reception. Unfortunately we were given what seemed to be the boggiest plot on the site even though other plots looked available (it had suffered from a lot of rain). I decided it just wasn't acceptable and went to complain. When I explained the situation to the lady on reception she was more than helpful and resited us with no hesitation which was very much appreciated. The walk to the shower block seemed a little far but there was another shower block been constructed and looked almost finished and would have been on our door step if complete. For the amount of people staying on the site the shower block in service was never overly busy and a shower and toilet was always available. The Childrens play park was adequate but again quite distant from our plot for what I am used to. We used the laundry facilities which was around £5 for a wash and dry, managed to get a lot of washing done due to the load of the machines although the clothes were still damp when they came out of the drier. Hillcroft is a 10 minute walk from Pooley Bridge which is a fantastic village and plenty of activities going on and overaul we enjoyed our stay at Hillcroft. When I return to Pooley Bridge I would look for a site with more facilities for children and on site entertainment but would have no problem staying at Hillcroft again. The mobile chip van that came to visit was excellent and good value. In my opinion I did get the impression that the static caravan owners were priority and the tourers and tents were playing second fiddle to the site this never caused us any problems and we all had a good 8 nights at Hillcroft....Read less.

Quiet time is generally 23:00hrs which keeps too much noise to the minimum, but after our day out all was quiet.

We were impressed from arrival to four days later on leaving Hillcroft Park, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Our pitch had a slight slope, as we sleep in the van it wasn't too much of an issue but the groundsheet and carpet in the awning continually drifting south was a pain! The whole site is maintained well and kept very tidy. The toilet/shower block is dated but always very clean, the shower cubicles are just that little bit too small though. The opening of the new toilet/shower block later in the year will be a great bonus for field B campers, slightly larger shower cubicles if possible please. We will definitely return though.

This is a very nice site which is kept clean and tidy. Have see good improvements this year for tourers, with the new super pitches. Also building of new toilet block which looks very impressive and is needed as the older block is quite a walk from the touring pitches and although kept clean is a bit dated.

Hillcroft is in a nice location just a few minutes walk from to the centre of Pooley Bridge.

Our only problem on this visit was we were placed in the first pitch next to the building works (although site was almost empty ?). It was not very relaxing with work vehicles turning in pitch next to us and noisy tools going on all day.

Will be back later in the year when hopefully work will be done .

Have to say it was an absolute hit with our daughter, she loved the quirkiness of it being something a little different to just a standard camping pod.

I was disappointed that after a tiring day walking and exploring Keswick that I couldn’t get to sleep due to the noise of other campers around us.

We are a young couple ourselves (26 years old) so we aren’t the type to be complaining of noise or parties etc. I don’t mind what noise or parties go on at a reasonable time, however when we were completely shattered and at 10.30pm the noise was horrendous, I kept thinking it’s ok because at 11pm it will go quiet or people will walk around asking for people to quieten down, this didn’t happen. I was awake until 1.00am, In the end I text the emergency number asking if there was anyone who walks around as the noise was just ridiculous, there was music blaring away, people laughing, shouting, singing at the top of their voices, with their children! Like I say I eventually fell asleep not long after 1am, I don’t know if this was because they went quiet or due to being that tired.

The lady who answered my text message was rude, not polite and didn’t apologise once. Not very good customer service, nothing was mentioned when we handed the key back the next morning either.

I must say, I have stayed on other sites such as Park Foot which is far more busier and far more children, and at night theirs is A LOT more quieter than this one. They have wardens that go around at 11pm asking people to be quiet. During the day

this site seemed quieter and a lot more older couples until the evening came and the noise was unbearable.

So all in all, the pod was ok but it spoilt our weekend away as we were too tired to carry out the walks we were going to do the morning after.

We had been here before 10 years ago in a tent and decided to return with our caravan.

Pitch size was great but a long way off from the main toilet block which was a significant climb up and down the hill when doing umpteen times a day. The laundrette and chemical disposal point were poorly signed and difficult to find. I had to walk up and down the hill to find either.

The new toilet bkock will be a fantastic boost in the quality of stay when it does open. I would not return beforehand.

We found it difficult to find anywhere nearer than Penrith for shopping . Pooley Bridge would benefit from one small convenience store although that it outside of the control of the camp site.

One last point. I love the protection by trees and to hear the local wildlife but there were dozens of really aggressive loud crows which stopped several members of my party getting a good night's sleep. I noticed a lot if good left overs from barbecues and one pitch had left dog food outside with Dr real crows helping themselves to it I suspect the lack of awareness of the draw that food debris has on scavenging crows does not help the situation. I heard several people complain about the noise from crows so it might help to encourage people to a little more mindful to clear food leftovers away before retiring for the night.

Overall positive review. Just a couple of niggles. Always room for a little improvement. 😁...Read less.

We stayed on a super pitch which was great. The park was very well maintained, in a great location and helpful staff. We will definitely be returning, love the lakes!

Myself and some friends were competing in a sport competition at nearby Park Foot Camping and Caravan park but after looking on their website decided to shop around to see if we could get better value for our accommodation for the weekend. We found Hillcroft and decided to book. The staff were very helpful when booking and the guys who arrived first have told me they were really welcoming. Didn't see much of the staff over the weekend because everything was in good working order so we didn't have to. Had a lovely time staying and waking up to the beautiful countryside on the doorstep. Local supermarket was only 15 minute drive away. Great location and great weekend. Thank you....Read less.

Booked 3 nights but only stayed 2 as pitches directly behind B19 ( ours ) were reserved for film crew & their catering vehicles, wardrobe vehicles, & shuttle buses. Area used as early morning meeting point & catering facility from 6,30am with people giving briefings / on phones / shuttle transport arriving departing. Noisy to say the least so cut our loses & departed !!!!!
