Reviews from the Hoseasons website

This park and accommodation were excellent. The park was clean and well maintained, as was the accommodation which had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this park and the accommodation.
I found Hillcroft location excellent and within walking reach of the village, therefore car is not a must. You have walks and boats at your doorstep!!. Also the accommodation in the lodges was great, from home to home with nice furnishings and warm atmosphere. The park for the children make it excellent for families with young children. Overall experience was great.
Accommodation furnished to a high standard and very clean and comfortable. Exceptional views from balcony on lodge we stayed in but if you have young children you may wish to ask for a lodge at bottom of site overlooking play park. Had a wonderful holiday and would recommend to anyone wanting to explore this part of the Lake District.
