Found in the picturesque UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Lake District National Park, Hill of Oaks Lodge and Caravan Park is in a very special location. The Park looks out onto Windermere, a highly exclusive lake frontage, 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 motor home 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. We also won Campsites award for 'Best Caravan Park' in the North West, and are now a Honey Bee Friendly Park, with a David Bellamy Award to commend this and our thriving Hedgerows. Visitors can choose from a range of Self Catering accommodation options including Apartments, Lakeside & Woodland Luxury Pods, and Safari Tents with a stunning settings and scenery around each.

This family friendly and dog friendly Caravan Park welcomes guests in touring caravans and motor homes, 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 dish washing 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 stops off at our main jetty most mornings for you to climb aboard and go explore the Lakes from 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 is 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 for hire that sleep two to six persons with two dog-friendly options too. In addition to the Apartments, Hill of Oaks has seven Deluxe Glamping Pods, three Safari Tents, as well as a one bedroom Chalet offering stunning views across Lake Windermere. All have access to the Parks facilities.

Or, if you fall in love with this Park, you can purchase 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 large range of budgets. We also operate a 'Know Your Neighbour' policy, meaning we never allow sub-letting of our properties, so you can be assured that the friendly community around you is there to stay, and you will always 'Know Your Neighbour'.

Whatever your age, you will find plenty to do when you visit the UNESCO World Heritage Lake District on your motor home and caravan holidays. This Park's location, just a 5 mile 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 will 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.

Lovely accommodation. Apartment warm and cosy and outlook superb.


Hill Of Oaks Lodge and Caravan Park

I booked this for as a 60th birthday present. They haven’t stopped talking about the accommodation, location, quality of the finish in the apartment, including the very kind gesture of a bottle of wine and goodies left for their special occasion. As a result, I cannot recommend this park enough. Just don't tell everyone, we won’t get booked again!
