Located at Pooley Bridge, a 16th century bridge that spans the River Eamont, Hillcroft offers holiday homes, 100 tent pitches (some with electric hook-ups) and 6 hardstandings. Campsite has 2 toilet blocks, washing-up areas and a well-stocked licensed shop. Pooley Bridge is a five minutes walk, while Ullswater is a just a 10-minute tramp (and has pubs and restaurants). You can catch a boat at Pooley Bridge to Howtown and then walk to Glenridding before returning on the boat - this is said to have been one of Wordsworth's favourite walks. Many water sports activities are offered locally, too.
