Hill Of Oaks Lodge and Caravan Park Windermere, Cumbria, North of England, LA12 8NR (Location map)
1st March to 14th November
Found in the picturesque Lake District National Park, Hill of Oaks Lodge and Caravan Park is in a very special location, its rare and exclusive lake frontage onto Lake Windermere meaning this site is justifiably popular with those for whom boat (or board/dinghy) launching is a priority.
So next time you're in the Lake District on your motorhome and caravan holidays, why not book time at this campsite and find out what all the fuss is about?
Hill of Oaks Lodge and Caravan Park is an award-winning campsite, with five stars from Visit England, as well as holding a four-pennant rating from the AA and a David Bellamy gold award. Visitors can choose from a range of self catering accommodation options.
This family friendly and dog friendly campsite welcomes guests in touring caravans and motorhomes, and awnings, pets and an electric hook-up are all included in the standard pitch fee. Seasonal touring pitches may be available upon request. On-site facilities include a washblock with a family room as well as disabled access and baby changing facilities, a dishwashing area and a laundry room, plus Calor Gas is available at the park's reception and Wi-Fi is available. You can also launch your boat onto the water directly from the jetties at this site.
In addition, Hill of Oaks Lodge and Caravan Park has an on-site shop stocked with everyday essentials like milk and bread, as well as newspapers and alcoholic drinks. You can get information about the local area here, too, to help you plan your adventures. Learn more about the natural environment in which this site sits by following the wildlife walks plus there's a children's play area suitable for kids of all ages, fenced off from the rest of the park. If the weather allows and you fancy a picnic, you can do so at one of the tables on the neatly landscaped lawn which leads down to the edge of the lake.
There are also three holiday homes that you can hire, two of which sleep two, the other can accommodate four people. From all three, guests will be able to enjoy stunning views across Lake Windermere and have access to all the campsite's facilities.
Or if you fall in love with this park, you can buy a holiday home and make Hill of Oaks Lodge and Caravan Park your permanent holiday retreat. Both new and pre-owned properties are available, suiting a range of budgets.
Whatever your age, you'll find plenty to do when you visit the Lake District on your motorhome and caravan holidays. This park's location, just a half hour drive from Kendal and under an hour's drive from Keswick, makes it ideal for exploring much of the area. Whether scaling Scafell Pike or learning more about Peter Rabbit and friends and The World of Beatrix Potter, just a 10-minute drive from this site, are on the agenda, this is a lovely part of the country, stunning countryside, charming towns and villages and expansive lakes combining to create an area you'll want to return to time and again.
Local event information is available within our shop, as well as a large selection of leaflets from attractions within the Lake District National Park. There are many things to see and do, making this the perfect centre for your holiday. Why not dive to the depths in the Lakeside Aquarium, visit the Peter Rabbit Tea Garden, Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway, Windermere Lake Cruises - NOW OPERATING FROM OUR PIERS, Motor Museum or shop for a souvenir in the Peter Rabbit & Friends shop in Bowness.
Our location makes us an ideal base for touring other areas within the Lake District National Park. Take a journey over Kirkstone Pass, at 1492ft it is Lakelands highest mountain pass that leads into the picturesque villages of Patterdale and Glenridding. One of our sister attractions Ullswater ‘Steamers’ operates from Glenridding, offering lake cruises on Ullswater.
La'aL Ratty on the West Coast is home to Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, the second of our sister companies. Book tickets to both of these attractions when you book your stay with us online and save!
All above are fairly close to the park. On site there are five jetties to choose from, boat launching and access to watersport activities as well as our nature walks, we provide one of the most idyllic locations to holiday, within the Lake District National Park. Please call into reception for full details on our boat launching facilities and use of the piers. Fishing is also permitted from the shores, with the appropriate licences which are available locally.
I was very disappointed to find out that there are no seasonal pitches available on this site.
I have previously been given a weekly price for a pitch and have now been informed that there are no pitches available & the site does not have a waiting list.
Do any seasonal pitchholders, know of anyone deciding to move on for next year? Hill of oaks was exactly what we wanted, a quiet, family site.
Many thanks to anyone that can help us.
Disappointed Mum of Sam Max & Sadie.

Hill Of Oaks & Blake Holme Caravan Estate, Windermere, Cumbria
A beautifully situated site. It caters mainly for static caravans which are located in pleasant secluded bays among the trees. Some of these sites are poorly maintained by the caravan owners which somewhat spoiled the tranquility of the location. The touring pitches are all hard standing and are of an impressive size, the toilet blocks and facilities all immaculatley maintained - some of the best I have ever used. Childrens play park and football field are good but located too far from the touring area to allow children to play unsupervised. Friendly and helpful staff.
We have a seasonal tourer on the site and we abosolutely love visiting the caravan each weekend
We particually enjoy the friendlyness of the staff and other owners of caravans.
We visit every weekend during the season and when the season end we always look forward to the start again.
