Alan Rogers Review

On the banks of Lake Windermere, this park lives up to its name. Set on a hillside in mature woodland, the park offers families a safe natural environment with nature walks through the managed ancient woodlands, as well as six jetties for boat launching and access to watersports activities (jet skis are not allowed). The road into the park passing the farmhouse is long, winding and narrow, so those with long units should ring ahead for alternative access, reception being about half a mile from the entrance. Although the park is situated on Lake Windermere, most of the touring pitches nestle within the trees, not actually by the lake. All 43 have 16A electricity, digital TV hook-up and hardstanding.

Most are large enough to take a car and boat and three large super pitches also have water and a drain. Tents are not accepted at Hill of Oaks. The entrance barrier is open from 08.00 till dusk with a security code being provided for exit. There is a new reception and shop selling basics, with a tourist information room adjacent. These are on the lakeside in wooden chalet-type buildings with an abundance of hanging baskets and flowers. Privately owned caravan holiday homes have been built into the hillside on terraces and are quite unobtrusive, screened by hedges and trees.


The central tiled toilet block is clean and heated (key entry, £10 deposit). Vanity style washbasins, controllable showers and free hairdryers. Baby changing areas. Fully equipped laundry. Unit for disabled visitors (combination lock). Motorhome services. Shop for basics. Two fenced play areas, one for toddlers and adventure style for over fives. Picnic areas and nature trails. Fishing (licence required). Electric car for hire. WiFi (charged).
