Everything you need to know about the changes at Fell Foot

The stunning views at Fell Foot

Fell Foot is currently undergoing vital conservation and maintenance work. We’re working hard to get the work done quickly so that our visitors can enjoy everything the site has to offer as soon as possible. Here's everything you need to know about what we're doing and how it affects you.

What are we changing?

We are restoring the historic boat house complex and arboretum with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, improving access to the waterfront, and installing new pathways. In addition we are building new sporting facilities on site with funding from Sport England.

What are the new buildings on site for?

You might have spotted some brand new buildings at Fell Foot. This is the new Active Base – a place for you to come and try water sports on the shores of Windermere. The base officially opens in June, but some clubs are already using the base over spring and letting us know what they think.

Can I lend a hand?

Yes please! There are lots of volunteering opportunities including working on the Oral and Social History Project, leading guided tours, assisting with events and helping the Youth Ranger Team in the outdoors. If you're interested in finding out more please contact Kelley at kelley.sprostonheath@nationaltrust.org.uk or 015395 31273.

Car parking

We will continue to charge for car parking throughout the year, to support the operation and conservation of the site. This enables us to continue looking after Fell Foot, forever, for everyone. Find out more about National Trust car parking.
