Find out about all the activities you can take part in at Fell Foot Park!
Fell Foot Park is a National Trust area that’s within a five to ten minute drive from Park Cliffe caravan park, depending on the time you travel and how many caravans you pass on your way from Newby Bridge heading to Park Cliffe. If only the road would be marginally wider and a touch straighter it would make the journey to Park Cliffe significantly less stressful!
Originally, there was just a café and shop next to the lake and an old boat house where a small ferry would transport people from this side of the lake to Lakeside hotel on the opposite side.
But, all has changed since the floods back in 2015 and since then Fell Foot has developed significantly. The site has been in the process of building a very well-equipped water sports centre which personally I can’t wait to have a look around.
Unfortunately due to its amazing location on the Lake and beautiful views, especially if you love a good picnic in the sun, it is often very busy during peak holiday times. Please don’t let this put you off visiting, but be prepared for other families and groups arriving with the same intentions.
It’s very important to mention here that the entrance and exit to Fell Foot Park are in separate places; when coming from Park Cliffe the entrance is first on your left and the exit is further on as you have to drive through the car park to reach it.
If you’re a frequent visitor to the Lake District – become a member of the National Trust and save hundreds on parking and support the awesome conservation work they do! There are lots of National Trust days out in the Lake District.
So head on down to Fell Foot Park. Spend an afternoon there, or visit in the evening, get a coffee in the café or walk your dog in the meadow.
