Lakeshore park with stunning mountain views

Situated at the very southern tip of Lake Windermere, Fell Foot is a great, family friendly location to play, explore and relax. Sweeping lawns offer plenty of space for games, picnics and gentle walks, while easy lake access makes the park perfect for paddling, swimming and boating.

Rowing boats are available to hire (from April to October) and our adventure playground offers fun for all ages.

The boathouse café is a fantastic place to be. Soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a warming cup of delicious hot chocolate, coffee or tea.

Don't miss out on our programme of events, take a look at our events page for more details.
