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 Caravan Park and find out what all the fuss is about?

Hill of Oaks Lodge and Caravan Park is an award-winning park, with five stars from Visit England, as well as holding a five-pennant rating from the AA and a David Bellamy gold award. Visitors can choose from a range of self-catering accommodation options including apartments and lakeside luxury Pods with a stunning view of Lake Windermere.

This family friendly and dog friendly caravan site welcomes guests in touring caravans and motorhomes, with awnings, pets and an electric hook-up all included in the standard pitch fee. 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. During the main summer season, Windermere ferry picks up at our main jetty every morning for transfer to Lakeside Pier.

In addition, Hill of Oaks Lodge and Caravan Park has a fully licensed on-site shop stocked with everyday essentials like milk and bread, as well as newspapers and alcoholic drinks. You can also get information about the local area here, 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 four holiday apartments that you can hire that sleep from two to six persons and one is dog friendly too. In addition to the apartments, Hill of Oaks has 5 Deluxe Lakeside Glamping Pods as well as a 1 bedroomed Chalet stunning views across Lake Windermere and have access to all the Parks 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 World Heritage Lake District on your motorhome and caravan holidays. This park's location, just a 5 miles drive to Bowness-on-Windermere, packed full of trendy bars and restaurants. Slightly further afield is Kendal around 20 minutes away and under an hour's drive is Keswick and Ullswater, making it an ideal base 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.

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.

There are panoramic windows in the open plan living area, with sliding doors on the front aspect. The feature of the room is the Baronial style fire place with an electric wood burning stove and flagstone hearth set against a wood panelled wall. Tartan pelmets and cushions complement the eclectic mix of sofas. The second bedroom sleeps four in bunk beds, and there’s no skimping with the bed sizes or storage space as there are two wardrobes and a trunk; the design is traditional but with modern functionality. The master bedroom is spacious with a five foot traditional metal frame bed and the use of oak furniture featuring highly for the bedside tables, dressing table and in the dressing area which does feature open plan shelves. Unsurprisingly, there is a luxurious en-suite shower room.
