Pooley Bridge, Ullswater, Cumbria & The Lakes, North of England

Hillcroft Park is set in the beautiful Ullswater Valley in the Lake District National Park, sitting above the pretty lakeside village of Pooley Bridge and Lake Ullswater, a 5-minute walk from the park.
We believe a holiday at Hillcroft Park is about more than just good service, great amenities and a wonderful setting. We offer a peaceful and relaxed environment where you can focus on making memories, sharing stories and enjoying precious family time. Hillcroft Park is an idyllic location from which to explore the Lake District and the Eden Valley.
Set on a rolling hillside which provides some of the most stunning views across Lake Ullswater and the nearby hills.
Walking, cycling, fishing, sailing, climbing and canoeing are just some of the activities that are available within the surrounding area, or you may just wish to relax on this David Bellamy Gold Award winning Park. Hillcroft Park is perfectly situated and offers easy access to the Lake District and the local towns for those who like to discover some of Cumbria’s more specialist shops. Within a short distance from the park there are many local attractions such as the Rheged Visitor Centre and The Ullswater Steamer. Gentle walks, such as the one to the Aira Force Waterfall are just a short drive away. For the more adventurous walkers, Helvellyn and other more taxing walks are close by.

It’s lovely and you can just walk into Pooley Bridge if I had to say anything that was wrong it would be take a torch because it’s very dark on a night and could do to be more lit up

We only stayed at the park for a couple of nights but would definitely return. The park is very large but extremely well kept, the lodge was immaculate. It actually felt like we were the first to stay there it was that clean. The kitchen was well equipped but I did struggle with the oven but only because I’m not used to gas. The whole area had a power cut on the Saturday night but someone came round to ensure that we were ok. Wonderful couple of days.

We visited this site from 28/10/19 to 1/11/19. There were 4 of us (2 adults & 2 teens) in Clearwater Lodge no. 12. Wow. Such a luxurious lodge - the best we've ever stayed in & we've stayed in many! The kids loved it & announced they would like to live there! So clean & cosy. Lots of nice touches e.g. biscuits & milk upon arrival, toiletries, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets. So spacious throughout. Wi-fi so the kids were happy. Beds comfy. There is a walk in wardrobe in the master bedroom which leads to the en-suite. We felt like royalty!!! The lodge is in such a beautiful part of the country. We're from Essex which is as flat as can be, but The Lakes are a sight to behold. We visited Aira Falls, Lake Windermere, Keswick, The Lakeland Motor Museum, Ulverston (we are big Laurel & Hardy fans) & our son did a bit of pony trekking in Ullswater. We were so lucky with the weather, too - no rain, just sunshine! Unfortunately, they are building a new bridge at Pooley Bridge as the old one was damaged in a storm & this resulted in our having to go the long way round on our journeys. Think it's not finished until next Autumn. Managed to sit outside on the table & chairs which were lovely in themselves. And, of course, we made good use of the hot tub. So lovely & relaxing. Wouldn't hesitate to come back here again or hesitate to recommend to anyone.
