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 (all are on hardstanding and numbered). Most are level and all have 10/16A electricity. There are two teepees 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. Public footpaths lead straight from the park. The regular lake steamer service calls at Pooley Bridge, the 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.
