Alan Rogers Review

Waterfoot is a quiet family park for caravans and motorcaravans only. It is set in 22 acres of partially wooded land developed in the fifties from a private estate. The 146 private caravan holiday homes are quite separate from the 36 touring pitches (31 are on hardstanding, the remaining 5 are grass pitches). Most are level and all have 10/16A electricity. There are four wooden wigwams, four self-catering 'hives' & five holiday cottages of varying berths for hire. Lake Ullswater is only about 400 yards away and a half mile stroll through bluebell woods brings you to the village of Pooley Bridge. Waterfoot’s touring pitches are arranged very informally in a large clearing.

There is a bar in a large, imposing mansion, in the past a family home then a golf hotel. The bar has a separate room which can be hired for rally meetings or private gatherings. The mansion has a garden which has splendid views of the lake and is open in the evenings at weekends and for longer hours during school holidays. Public footpaths lead straight from the park. The regular lake steamer service calls at Pooley Bridge and discount vouchers are available from reception. Ullswater yacht club is only 10 minutes drive and the market town of Penrith is 5 miles. The historic house and gardens of Dalemain are a short walk away.


The heated toilet block includes washbasins and preset showers in cubicles. New facilities for disabled visitors. Large, light and airy dishwashing room and fully equipped laundry. Small shop selling basics, gas and newspapers. Bar with strictly enforced, separate family room (weekend evenings low season, every evening high season). Large fenced field with play equipment to suit all ages and goal posts for football and a new play park. WiFi is available in the mansion house(charged). Electric car hire is available (Renault Twizy)
