Early morning at Fell Foot, Cumbria

Family fun at Fell Foot 

Fell Foot is open every day of the year (apart from Christmas Day), and there is plenty to see and do here whatever the weather. Get active outdoors by taking a family fitness class, and if that hasn’t worn you out then venture into our Pinetum on our Mirror Trail to learn about Fell Foot’s collection of specimen trees. After, you can get cosy in the tea room with a tasty treat.
