We are delighted to have won the Platinum Loo of the Year Award in the 2018 search to find the ‘best away from home’ washrooms in the UK.

Our entry was in the Holiday Park Sector.

The Loo of the Year Awards and Associated Washroom Cleaner of the Year Awards for cleaning staff have been identifying the best washrooms in Britain since 1987 and are recognised as standard setters for all those who provide ‘away from home’ facilities for staff, customers and visitors.

Every entry received an unannounced visit from a Loo of the Year Awards Inspector and was assessed against 101 judging criteria – including signage and décor, fixtures and fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management.   Every washroom receives a grading ranging from Bronze to Platinum and the Gold and Platinum winners are shortlisted for one or more of several National Awards covering England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.

The 2018 Loo of the Year Awards were sponsored by Clos-o-Mat , Dolphin Dispensers, and Dyson Airblade Wash + Dry.

Thousands of toilets were judged this year, across the sixty one separate entry categories of the completion, with many first time entries from establishments joining the increasing number of providers who submit their washroom facilities for an annual, independent assessment.

The New Shower Block


New for 2018
Location – Ullswater

On Wednesday 4 April 2018, the much-loved comedian, Johnny Vegas returned to Hillcroft Park to open an impressive, new facilities block.   Hillcroft Park became Johnny’s Lakeland ‘Home from Home’ for six weeks in 2017 during filming for the BBC series ‘Home from Home’ which will air soon on BBC1.

Johnny opened the brand new facilities building including a shower block that must be one of the most impressive in the UK when it comes to camping bathing facilities.  Many of the fixtures and fittings would not be amiss in a luxury bathroom at home!  Not content with high quality showers, basins, taps and tiles – campers will also be able to enjoy panoramic Lakeland scenes thoughtfully installed within the facilities themselves as well as a custom made Lakeland soundscape of dawn chorus, sheep and of course, water.

For families who prefer a little more privacy, we also have two private bathrooms that can be hired for the duration of guests’ stay that include generous bath and walk in showers.
