My partner and I, can't think of one thing this park needs to improve! We stayed in a pod. It is such great quality, lovely area, clean and tidy, pubs near by for lovely food and drinks, it was just perfect for our night away. Everything we needed and more, the shop has everything you would need and few extra bits. The new shower block is lovely you don't even feel your camping/glamping, because it looks so posh! Even the old shower block is nice clean and tidy, nothing wrong with it. We loved the games room too , we went there and had a laugh playing connect 4. Thanks for a lovely stay we have told loads people about it already and can't wait to come back wirh friends....Read less.

My family and I have been visiting Hillcroft for at least 3 years. We have stayed in the caravans, lodges and pods. It’s is our favourite place and there is nothing we would change. The accommodation, no matter what type, is always immaculately clean. The wine and milk on arrival at the lodges/Atlanta caravans are a lovely, thoughtful treat. The kids love the park and we feel safe letting them have a little freedom at the park and on the recreational field. The location is ideal to walk into Pooley Bridge or to get straight onto Barton Fell. Penrith for all town amenities is only a 15 minute drive away and Lowther castle is a short drive or a 3 mile walk away. I can’t really say enough, we love this site and will return for many years to come....Read less.

The new washing/toilet block is the best I have visited in 40 years of staying at campsites. The site itself was not busy due to time of year (end October) so difficult to say how well all the facilities would cope at peak times but as there is now two toilet blocks they should be ok. It would be helpful to have a tap at the motorhome service point as not all motorhomes pitch on the super fully serviced pitches. Easy walking distance of village and Ullswater is a big plus point. I would definitely return to this site (and in fact this is my third visit)....Read less.

Stayed here for a night in a pod with a few friends, had a good night in Pooley Bridge for food and drinks and sat out for a couple of hours on return to pod. The pod itself was clean, the electric plug and light help a great deal through winter and the bit of decking at the front and a picnic bench comes in very handy. Perfect location, helpful staff and an absolutely fantastic new shower block with animal noises and power showers - reminds me of a spa set up!

We love the village and the area but had never stayed at Hillcroft before. We loved it and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. One of the best things for us was the close proximity of the fells where we walked every day, followed by an afternoon walk along the lakeside. Shower and toilet facilities were second to none and as good as a top class hotel, an added bonus when touring out of season. Staff always very friendly and helpful which makes a difference to your holiday. Looking forward to visiting again, wish you were open for Christmas!...Read less.

We have stayed at Hillcroft Park before but we have been camping. The on-site facilities are brilliant, clean, warm shower/toilet facilities and well tended pitches.

This time of year, we decided to stay in a lodge - it was brilliant. The lodge was spotlessly clean and had every convenience you need - oven, microwave, dishwasher etc. The gas and electricity was all included in the bill so no nasty surprises. The bedrooms were very comfortable - double room with ensuite and plenty of storage. The twin room was more compact but beds were comfortable and linen spotless. Heating was also included and soon warmed up the lodge, patio doors led out on to the decking with patio table and chairs. The living area had a television and wi-fi was available. We would definitely come back to a lodge, another fab time at Pooley Bridge, thanks Hillcroft Park staff....Read less.

The Pod was ideal, perfect for two adults, two older teenagers and our family dog (spaniel).

It was very cold on the day of our arrival, but the heater soon warmed the pod up nicely and made for a very cozy stay.

The shower and toilet facilities at the park are exceptional, more a kin to your up- market hotel than your average campsite and unbelievably warm, which was a godsend for those of us who needed the loo in the middle of the night.

Only three things I would alter but not detrimental in any way to the site, simply a personal preference for us as a family, would be to have a pool table in the games room for older children, a designated area where you can let your dog run off lead, as our dog needs a good run first thing in the morning and last thing at night and hates the lead, with being a working dog. The other suggestion would be to face a couple of the pods in the opposite direction, so when you are sat on the decking, you can take in the view of the lake.

Got to say it though, definitely the best campsite in Pooley Bridge and we’ve stopped in a couple. Mainly for its well kept, unspoilt facilities and nice guests it seems to attract.... no noisy campers/party animals!...Read less.

We only stayed for one night but we were very satisfied with the state of the site and the facilities available. We will definitely use this site again having now explored the site and identified which pitch we would select the next time.

We arrived just after 5pm and the office was still open and we checked in at reception with no problems. We were told about the site and advised as to where our pitch was and how to get to it using a map that was on the counter. It would have been better to have been given a copy of the site map showing where all the facilities are and a leaflet with information about the site and local facilities. There was no information given to us about the site facilities or local shops and pubs in the village and we had to suss this out ourselves.

We found the toilet block was superb and very clean. Personally, I found the sound effects in the toilet block of birds, dogs and sheep, a bit 'cheesy' and would have preferred to have a local radio station or even Radio 2 playing quietly. The showers could really do with having a shower curtain fitted to stop the floor getting soaked. Even though I placed my shoes as close to the door as I could and my clothes on the seat, it is the first time that the shoes filled with water and my clothes got wet. A shower curtain being fitted would have stopped the water spraying across the cubicle, It would be better to have more than one hook in the cubicle. Other sites have at least two or three hooks available in the shower cubicles.

The motorhome grey water waste point was not signed very well and we found it by chance. The drain grate was in the middle of the concrete area which made it tricky to get over it. Most motorhomes have the grey waste outlet to one side which meant we had to enter the waste point close to the side so that our drain point flowed directly into the drain.

In the main though, we found the site very neat, clean and well kept.

We love it at hillcroft. It's now become an annual visit (twice in 2018 and will be going back in spring 2019). The lodges are lovely and contain everything you need. The surrounding area has some great walks and pooley bridge itself is a lovely little village. We never even look anywhere else.

We had a problem with the boiler this time but the staff fixed it with a smile.

If I had to pick on areas for improvement the TVs are quite small and internal speakers not very powerful.

I suppose you get what you pay for but its not cheap. Maybe a loyalty scheme for returning guests would be a good step. But overall it's a great site....Read less.

This was our last stop after driving for ten days on the NC500 (Northcoast 500/Scotland). We had done a different site every day of our journey making the trip a bit hectic but we still enjoyed ourselves. This site was an excellent end to our trip. I cannot begin to express how much I enjoyed the facilities. The piped-in outdoor sounds in the bathroom facilities was a really nice touch. I took photos to send to my daughters as they think camping is all about spiders and dirty toilet facilities. Without a doubt, they were convinced they could holiday at this site. We hope to visit again in the years to come....Read less.

I Chose the wettest weekend of the year to stay at Hillcroft but its not called the Lake District for nothing. No such thing as the wrong weather just the wrong clothing so be prepared. The owners have gone to great lengths to ensure you have everything you need if you are camping and should you get wet from walking or biking as I did, you can enjoy a good hot shower in what must be one of the smartest shower/WC blocks on the camping circuit

The owners & staff cant do anything about the weather but they can, and they do make sure your stay is everything you hoped for.

Many thanks and I would highly recommend a visit....Read less.

We stayed for a week in October, and it was probably the best holiday we have had in years. The site is beautiful, from driving through the entrance all the way to the Super Pitches at the top. Checking-in on arrival was really easy and the staff were all super friendly and helpful. The small shop on site has all the basics you might need (including some local meat that was just delicious). The park on a whole is beautifully kept, the grass and plants are all well looked after, their is no rubbish or overflowing bins. The new toilet block is absolutely stunning, better than a top end hotel bathroom. It is so well decorated with little homely touches, and it was always nice and warm (perfect for showering on a cold day). Even with a bathroom in our caravan we still opted to use the one on site because it was so relaxing.

The location of the site is perfect, it's about a 15 minute walk into Pooley Bridge which is a lovely little place and has some really good pubs. Plenty to keep you busy on an evening. It is also ideal for a lot of local walks straight out of the site.

We are already planning our next trip for the beginning of 2019, it is a firm favourite for us and we can't stop talking about it to anyone who will listen!...Read less.

My son and I camped for one night in Sept 2018. We were each carrying a small backpacking tent. I was surprised we had to pay for two camp pitches even though both tents would have easily fitted one pitch. Thus we ended up paying £36 for one night's camping. This I think was extortionate. If we had brought one larger tent between us we would only have had to pay £18 (even that is more than other sites were charging). This policy seems very unfair and needs addressing.

Other than that, the site was excellent.

One minor gripe, the site was not level, despite being assured that it would be, This also needs addressing....Read less.

Lovely park with beautiful facilities but I would not return on a weekend or through school holidays. There was a large party of five or six families staying just down from us with two gazebos put together and seemed to have at least twenty children between them. They all seemed to have a fabulous time and the children loudly ran amock around the site until after 10.30 pm on the Friday night.

It had been a few years since we'd last visited the park and were really surprised to see how much it had changed and developed since then. It is in a great location and very easy to get to from the M6 but you're right on Ullswater when you get there. Pooley Bridge is a nice spot with a few pubs to choose from for food and just a short walk back to the site. Keswick isn't too far away either.

The reception was really efficient and the map of the site we received good - I actually said "wow" when we drove past the new toilet black next to the camping field . Opened in April of this year, it is pretty amazing as far as they go. It also houses an arcade games room which was a nice touch and kept us entertained after our walk one afternoon. The dog shower at the back is also super practical and we put it to good use.

The pitches were large with plenty of room for our camper van - and they were level to.

This is one of our favourite campsites - and we'll be back - for sure....Read less.

We found this campsite by chance. We'd booked in originally for two nights and after having arrived on site, soon realised what a gem we had found (booked for a further 3 nights).

The park itself is extremely well laid out with a beautiful landscape surrounding it. We were staying in a motorhome and after booking in were allocated a pitch. As the park was not full I am sure the helpful friendly staff would have accommodated a move if we felt it had necessary. It was short walk into Pooley Bridge where there were ample places to eat and drink and just generally amble around. Ullswater was a ten minute walk away and wow what a stunning place it is.

I cannot recommend this site high enough and after having toured around Britain extensively, I can honestly say this is one of the best campsites we have come across. The washroom facilities would not look out of place in a five star hotel, simply stunning. The staff were very friendly (especially the two lads that were cutting and strimming the grass) All in all we had a fantastic stay in and around Ullswater that was made all the more enjoyable by our stay at Hillside Park. We will definitely be returning....Read less.

This campsite is in excellent condition, immaculately groomed with outstanding wash and shower facilities, even a doggy shower!! The staff were very helpful and polite at all times and I honestly would struggle to give it a negative comment. Having said that, our pitch was on a corner (62) and found it very cramped as other campers were closing in to what I would class as our pitch. I couldn't erect my porch as the area was too small meaning we were very cramped in our tent, cooking and washing facilities had to go outside. Not a big issue as we were only there for two nights so we put up with it, but these corner pitches do need looking at, either clearly mark them out or take them out altogether.

We stayed in August 2018 so peak time for families to go. However you wouldn't of thought this as the park didn't seem overcrowded at all. We stayed in the camping pods which were for 2 adults and up to 2 children. I stayed with my child and a small dog and it was perfect. It has a carpet, an electric socket, a light ( not the brightest but we brought our own bedside lamp as well) and a heater which worked really well to keep you warm into the night. In my opinion if is that you have two children aged 8 and above you would need the family pods that are slightly larger. A big plus is the newly renovated shower block- WOW! It make glamping complete! The childrens park is just behind the pods and the park itself is 8 minutes walk to Pooley Bridge

This is a friendly park and everyone respects the rules of 10 a.m quiet time till the morning. Which you do appreacite when having walked miles aech day with smaller children. An overall positive experaince which I would return too again next year. Thanks again Hillcroft.

I have stayed at Hillcroft Park several times and had enjoyable relaxing stays. The last time I stayed included the August bank holiday weekend. I was in my campervan by the edge of the camping field which became very busy over the weekend. I didn't mind the sound of families enjoying themselves and groups sitting outside or in awnings talking but when the noise continued after the 11pm "quiet time" and until 1am one morning it became a nuisance. I realise this can be difficult tents not being sound proofed in the same way as vans but please bear this in mind when you chose your dates and position on the site.

Otherwise my stay was excellent as were all the staff. Despite the site being busy there was always availability of toilets and showers which were very clean....Read less.

We had a good stay at the site and the washing facilities were second to none. The only negative comment I would give is the rudeness of the staff. From checking in I found the staff very abrupt and unfriendly. When asking a simple question regarding an enquiry we had made before the visit, the staff member became very defensive and rude.

We were also approached during our stay by another member of staff regarding noise on a night. The way we were approached was very unprofessional and rude. Saying this, the night in question the security guard passed our pitch a number of times, he did not mention anything about being too nosiy and at times standing and talking to us.

Other than this issue I feel the site was good and facilities spot on....Read less.

You most definitely pay for the facilities here but they are worth it as everything is clean and tidy with the grass kept short and well maintained all around.

Play areas for the children both inside and out and laundry room plus on site shop with friendly staff.

The showers are great but more pressure would be good.

They are always clean though.

Perhaps a bit of a security walk around on an evening would stop the noisy groups going late into the evening after the noise cut off.

Overall. Very good.

we are a family of 5 and stayed here with other family members on their recommendation, I found staff very helpful and friendly upon arrival, we were shown where to go and pitch up, we found facilities very good and nice and clean, shower blocks were exceptional, apart from one day I went to the toilet and two toilets had no toilet paper, and one sink wasn't working maybe sensor fault I dont know, and several soap dispensers were empty, but they were rectified following day as far as i'm aware, park had no complaints from kids, even played out at it in the rain, games room was adequate, there is a family bathroom which is used upon a charge which I think was a bit high, at ten pound a night, maybe as long as key is paid for by deposit and returned upon inspection that you left it as you found it, maybe an idea, rather than a costly ten pound each night, we have a disabled son with autism and were offered a room, for him to go to if needed to chill out i'm not sure where this room was but didn't need it, anyway luckily, nice and quiet on a night we were in bottom field, field was a bit uneven and had problems acquiring a level ground to put bed so I was hanging onto the bed for three nights and rolled off a couple of times but not a problem....Read less.

This place is great , they have stunning facilitys ,they keep the place very nice and all the staff are sound as a pound ! They have regular security doing the rounds at night but they do not bother you unless your doing somthing you know you shouldn't be doing .pooley bridge is on your doorstep and there are dozens of things to do in the area or alternatively the likes of ambleside is just over the kirkstone pass which is a stunning drive.There is 1 single reason why i may have to stop using this beautiful place unfortunately and use an alternative camp site and that is the fact that it seems a battle to be able to put up your gazebo/event shelter .I have been camping many many years and know most of the rules by now on camping .The second to last time i used the site i was refused permission to put up my gazebo even though there was ample room to put it up even with the tents that arrived later and the ones that was already there when we pitched up .The last time i booked i asked on the phone before booking and we come to an aggement on a certain picth and was given permission to put it up but it was not as easy as i think it should have been to get the ok due to the fact right infront of my eyes were tents extremely close together in some parts but on the other hand there is a problem with a gazebo when there is ample room to put it up for shade for the kids and also the dog without being in a red hot humid tent.I cannot say anything bad about this place or any of the staff , they all do a good job and it shows but for the reason i talked about unfortunately may not return again ....Read less.

I often go to another site near Pooley Bridge and have been quite happy there but we thought we would hive Hillcroft a try after a recommendation and some research. Well worth the extra cost mainly because of the allocated and in some cases, electric hooked up pitches and the excellent toilet facilities Praise to the park staff also, for whom nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We are all a little old to use the children's facilities, but those we saw using them appeared to have a good time and there was enough space on the fields for children to play amongst themselves. The camping fields are an adequate size to feel cosy and secure. We particularly liked the security cockerel who came around for camp inspection near BBQ time and he in turn seemed to like the odd scrap we tossed his way. Lol! Normally I would recommend this site without hesitation, but I'm reluctant for fear of it being spoilt by over popularity!...Read less.

Have stayed at HillCroft several times this year and already have several more visits booked The welcome when you first arrive is lovely. Jane and Trish are so friendly and can answer most questions about the local area. John and Jill, the owners, and their family are so hands on it’s amazing. Many friendly chats with them both at 6am in the morning. The site is beautiful and so well cared for From the camping field, pods, touring pitches to the static caravans and lodges. Everyone is catered for. The attention to detail is superb and is rarely found on sites like this any more Looking forward to my next visit next week The village of Pooley Bridge is a short walk away and also caters for everyone from snacks and lunches, to pub meals and fine dining at 1863. Small restaurant which has just been mentioned by London’s timeout as one of the 10 restaurants to visit around the country outside of London. Having eaten there recently I would recommend it to anyone looking for something a little bit different and special.

Hillcroft is a lovely site and we were very pleased with the whole layout of the site, the general upkeep of the place and the excellent facilities. It’s ideal for Motorhomes as there are good shops and pubs within short walking distance as well as some beautiful walks straight from the site. The weather was also gorgeous which showed off the site at its best.

Very unfortunately we were unlucky enough to pitch up in our new motorhome on our first weekend away, opposite a very noisy group of 4 families with children who were left mostly unsupervised and who played loud music from their card with the doors wide open. They pitched their tents in an ‘encampment’ with a huge fire pit in the middle. The noise started soon after our arrival at 2pm until past midnight. Although the field was patrolled occasionally, and we were assured by reception staff the following morning that the group had been warned to turn the music down several times, as soon as the warden had gone, it was turned up again. We felt we didn’t want to sit outside our motorhome despite the lovely warm evening as the group were so loud and disruptive but on the second night we felt we didn’t want it to beat us. Hence we did sit out but we put our own music on, not loud enough to disturb others, but so that it drowned out some of the background noise for us so we could relax a bit.

I think the families should have been asked to leave on Friday night after a couple of warnings as they continued their antics on into the Saturday from about 5pm until 11pm. The other alternative is to limit booking for groups of friends to maybe 2 camped together. This issue, and the amusements building at the bottom of the field, which was also quite noisy and frankly, not really in keeping with the rest of the up-market site, were the only negative aspects of our stay. But as most people I’m sure would agree, this type of experience can tend to dominate your memories of your stay at a particular site.

As I know people who have a static on the site I understand this is a rare occurrence but had I just booked out of the blue I don’t think we would have returned. However we will return because of overall high standards and friendliness of the staff on-site but we will camp in an area limited to Motorhomes and caravans....Read less.

Boiler stopped working on last day due to low water pressure and within 5 minutes of ringing a man was there and it was fixed.

Would highly recommend the park and we just wish we'd found it years ago when our kids were younger as it is so can't friendly.

Toilet and washing facilities were first class. Pitch was a fair size and layout of park was lovely. We were frustrated by the noise situation for a variety of reasons. First, we clearly got the impression that (like most family friendly campsites in the area) groups were not allowed. However, on 4 out of the 5 nights that we stayed on site, we were kept awake after ten pm and sometimes after 11pm by people who had grouped together, sat around having loud conversations and sometimes playing music aloud. This was sometimes groups of campers but more often groups staying in the 'pods' who had clearly come prepared for long, loud, late night barbecues and socialising. The litter left behind by these was disappointing. Moreover we were frustrated as we had come prepared with an event shelter to use at the front of our tent. Our family tent is not as big as others, and we find this a good way of having covered area for our daughter to play in, or for us to eat in, and still having a sleeping/living area inside. However we were surprised to read the site rules on the sign board saying no gazebos. This wasnt obvious to us upon booking (I confess to not studying all of the small print but it wasn't obvious). Indeed we had rejected another local site and chosen yours for this reason. To be polite, my wife went to ask at reception if we could put up the event shelter. She was made to feel uncomfortable, with the reason given that it promotes noise, but it was permitted, thankyou for this as it would have been most frustrating to not be allowed. We were then shocked by the levels of noise that were permitted (sometimes from groups with gazebos, sometimes not), when the staff had seemed so keen to prevent it. We had a gazebo, yet were silent after 8pm as our daughter was sleeping, and in bed before ten pm. May I suggest that you put your focus onto preventing noisy groups, rather than unnecessarily putting off quiet families purely because they have an event shelter?

Similarly with ball games- the stated policy of no ball games on the grass between the tents is admirable, but it should be enforced or have more clear signage! My wife and I both politely asked various groups of children on different days to follow the rules as we were concerned that they would knock out stove over while cooking. We were on pitch 12 and frequently had children and adults kicking balls into our area, as it is down the hill. Once, after asking a child politely and pointing out the rules, a mother accused us of being "the police" and "forgetting what it is like to be a child". Evidently this spoiled our family holiday to a small extent. We liked much about the park, but will be considering other local camp sites instead next time. As very frequent campers and visitors to the northern Lake District, we may return, but if we find something that appears better then we think it will be worth a try....Read less.

We chose Hillcroft on the spare of the moment as it was close to home and pet friendly. In hindsight we should have been a little more vigilant with our choice as it was our dogs first camping trip.

The park is large, has everything from mobile homes, pods, tourers and tents and was a little full on for our pooch. He was anxious from the moment we arrived and was vocal for the first hour of our visit as we pitched our tent, however he started to calm after the initial excitment.

Unfortunately a member of staff came to our pitch, when the dog was settled to say there had been a complaint. This then unsettled us, as there was loud music, children shouting and playing ball games on an area that quite clearly stated no ball games and general noise.

We couldn't relax. Everytime our dog made a noise (usually because children were being loud and playing in a prohibited area) we were on edge.

We left and were home in time for bed.

This is a lovely site, if loud and lively is your thing. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with a lively dog though. It seems the clientel have no issue with screaming kids, but barking dogs are another matter!...Read less.

Very well drained pitches (put to the test by torrential rain!), very well thought out site. Only improvements could be the water pressure was very high at some washroom and washing up sinks that meant the front of you got wet. also same in the shower the divider wasn't big enough to keep the dry area dry, so an extra hook or too could have been useful, however, these were gripes that would not put me off going, because on balance it is an excellent place....Read less.

We are a family of 5, kids ages 12, 7 and 3 and we booked Saturday 28th to Monday 30th July. Staff were really helpful and friendly on our arrival and we could see that the park was immaculately maintained. The facilities such as the toilets, showers and pot washing area were excellent and were spotless throughout our stay. There was somebody cleaning pretty much each time we visited the toilets/showers which was great to see!

There was a children's play area which looked really good but because it rained solidly during our stay we didn't get to use it but there was also a games room with arcade machines inside to keep the kids entertained if needed. We visited the Puzzling Place in Keswick while we were there and it only cost us £11.75 for us all to get in; it's less than 30 minutes away in the car and I would recommend this for rainy stays!

The only gripe I could mention was that bin area near our plot was overflowing with rubbish even though there were about a dozen large bins so I'm not sure how often these are emptied but we were having to try and ram any waste we had in where it would fit. Some people had just decided to start leaving bags of rubbish on the floor in front of them. I could see this attracting a lot of pests if it's a regular occurrence.

All in all though we really enjoyed our stay there despite the weather and we will definitely give it another go and hopefully get a bit of sun next time!...Read less.

We had a superb time this July at Hillcroft! We'd stayed before, in a pod, however this time it was a tent. Let's forget the tent, as it didn't make it back from the trip (!) and concentrate on the site.

We were first met by a very helpful and friendly gent in the reception, who guided us to our spot. Next up was some urgent supplies bought from the very handy shop. We marvelled at the new solutions block; absolutely fantastic; modern, ultra clean, trendy, and complete with realistic outdoor sounds over the internal speaker system. Fabulous! The actual tent area was great, flat with cut grass, and plenty of space to set up the tent as well as off loading the kayak. The new games area was also excellent.....the biggest Pac man arcade game the world has ever seen!!!

We spent the next two days in the kayak on Ullswater, and had breakfast and evening meal in Pooley Bridge.

We had a really nice stay. Its the first time we have stayed since the new shower and toilet facilities and we were very impressed.we have a small camper van and our family stayed in a pod. The only thing about our van pitch was that it was on quite a slope so made it so that we had a big step out of the van, our two year old grandson found this a little tricky. All the staff members were very friendly and helpful. We feel that the playground would benefit from having somethings that a toddler could play on, most of the activities are a little adventurous for a two year old.

Overall very satisfied with the whole experience, the quality and cleanliness of the wash facilities and toilets were outstanding. My only negative comments would be with the hard standing material that being that it was very difficult to erect the awning due to the difficulty of getting the tent pegs to enter the ground and once up even with footprint and awning carpet it was hard on the feet with some quite sharp stones.

Despite being the first weekend of the school holidays, and the site being fully booked, it never felt uncomfortably busy. Plenty of families and groups camping together, but noise was never a problem.

We stayed last weekend for a family get-together The reception staff were very welcoming , courteous and helpful. This set the tone for the whole weekend as everyone working at the site was equally so.

We stayed in our motorhome on a very spacious hardstanding pitch. Although the weather was hot we had ample shade from nearby trees as did the other pitches. In fact the whole site is very well set out with plenty of space. The facilities were of the highest standard and the shower block was luxurious. I have to say that given it was a weekend in summer, this has to be one of the quitest sites we have ever stayed in.

Our son and his family were in one of the static caravans. It was absolutely gorgeous, very clean, tastefully decorated and well kitted out.

There were only a couple of things we thought of that would have helped for us. We found difficulty in first locating our son's static. Having the numbers of the statics on a sign at the beginning of each road would make things easier. Also, the speed limit signs could be larger and more of them. There were some drivers not heeding the speed limit.

In conclusion, we all had a fabulous weekend at Hillcroft and will most definitely be booking again in the future....Read less.

We’ve been staying at Hillcroft for over 5 years now, it’s always delivered on exactly what we needed.

A nice, clean, well kept campsite with good facilities and great staff.

This year upon our arrival we were asked if we had seen the new shower block yet, it was being built last year when we visited. It was suggested we would be “satisfied with the facilities” by the member of staff (with a slight smirk on their face).

What we found was amazing, beautiful shower and wash facilities, a brand new games room and even a dog wash. Amazing... then we saw the private bathrooms!!! Huge showers, baths with jacuzzi functions, loads of space and a fantastic quality of finish... this was simply stunning, there’s no other word for it, the perfect environment to enjoy a long soak in after a good walk around the hills.
