Boathouse Café

Prepare to take yourself back in time as you enter through the doors of this boathouse built in the 1800s. Take a moment to warm yourself by the log fire and make yourself comfortable. Sample our homemade cakes and freshly made coffee or head out to the lakeside patio to hire one of our rowing boats. Enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Windermere over a nice cup of tea, a bowl of soup or even a cold beer.

Our younger visitors have their very own children’s menu and we also offer a variety of sandwiches and drinks to take away so you're always welcome to find a quiet spot in the park and picnic to your heart’s content.

We are happy to provide catering for group visits if booked in advance and you can hire this distinctive venue for private functions.

Fell Foot Shop

Just next to the café, nestled among the 19th-century boathouses, Fell Foot shop offers you a place to search for the perfect gift.

Here you can buy something for everyone; from our very own National Trust jams, chutneys and scrumptious confectionery, to kids’ toys and games which you can take home or play with right here at the park.

The picturesque views of boats bobbing on the water and the famous Lake District mountains to the north provide a spectacular panorama for the perfect shopping experience.
