 Another fabulous weekend with family at Hillcroft.

We were in tents, pitches are always well-tended. Good space between pitches and clearly marked.

Toilets / bathrooms / showers all immaculate and well-stocked at all times.

Short walk into Pooley Bridge for pubs / cafes / shops. Beautiful part of The Lakes. Great walks around Ullswater.

Thank you Hillcroft.

 We have been on our second visit after recommendations from a friend. Beautiful site with the very best bathroom facilities.

We were blessed with amazing weather but came last year in November and it was just as good.

Beautiful walks and very close to the village with great places to eat and have a drink and relax.

We will definitely be back and have even asked about availability of a seasonal pitch.

 Fantastic site!

The toilet block and facilities were top class.

Great size pitch with a view of the lake.

Friendly staff eager to help.

Less than 10 minute walk in to the lovely village.

Reviewer: Queencatifah 3 reviews from this member

 Good things: (1) Location: Pooley Bridge and Ullswater are lovely with lots of eateries within walking distance; (2) the pitches: spacious, private, clean and fully serviced; (3) staff: the only guy we met was very pleasant and helpful.

Bad things: (1) By far the most expensive site we have ever stayed at @ £50 per night (over Christmas) - but we wanted to be in Pooley Bridge; (2) the shower block was cold; (3) the shower sensors were unfathomable and random and it was very difficult having a pleasant shower, although the water itself was very hot.

I wouldn't stay again because of the cost. If the cost were £30 per night, then I would. It is simply unjustifiably expensive.

Reviewer: Smart Family 90 reviews from this member

 We stayed at this site for 5 nights, having booked and picked our own serviced pitch.

On arrival we had a friendly informative reception. The pitch was very large and divided by nice shrubs.

The toilet blocks were particularly nice and modern with countryside sounds played through speakers.

The nearby village of Pooley Bridge has some shops and Cafes and a few nice pubs and is a very short walk.

The bus service is very good, which we used to Glenridding and walked 9 miles back along Ullswater and we did the same to Penrith.

All the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area.

We would return.

 Fantastic campsite. We’ve stayed at a few sites around ullswater but this was by far the best.

Really friendly staff and pristine electric pitches and the toilet facilities are amazing.

5-10 min stroll to Pooley Bridge and ullswater lake and chippy/ breakfast/ pizza van on site certain nights.

I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
