Fell Foot Wood

2017 PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NO LONGER PERMITTING GENERAL CAMPING THIS YEAR OTHER THAN AT EVENTS (although there are camping weekends at Bank Holidays) See events page.

As a naturally occurring wood, all of the facilities offered at Fell Foot Wood are in tune with and respect the local environment.

We provide for quiet "back-to-nature" camping and your own created imaginative entertainment.

We are not a campsite/holiday complex with associated facilities.

Fell Foot Wood is a working woodland and woodyard.

It does not operate as a conventional campsite and there are no showers.

There are separate ladies and gents toilets with warm water at an adjoining sink for pot washing only.

Please be mindful of the hazards if machinery is operating and keep well away.

Please keep out of the woodyard and shop area outside of opening hours to avoid security issues/potential embarrassment.

There is plenty of wildlife in the wood – Deer ,squirrels, bats, and many bird species. Please take sensible precautions and avoid overgrown bracken areas where there is likely to be ticks and do not disturb a sunning adder should you be lucky enough to find one

NOISE AND MUSIC .Please be aware that noise can easily travel across the Lake and keep sound to low levels particularly after 11p.m at night.

Background music is OK before 11p.m but no music is allowed after 11p.m.

Please feel free to visit our location page for directions to the wood. We are at the South end of Lake Windermere just across the road from Fell Foot Country Park.


Local amenities


The National Trust Fell Foot Park entrance is opposite the Wood entrance (2 mins away).
It is open till 5p.m, free entrance on foot and there is a cafe in the boathouse alongside the lake.

Also there is a small ferry that takes you across the Lake to Lakeside station with the steam locos

Cruises www.windermere-lakecruises.co.uk  with another cafe and the Lakeside Hotel for a drink. There are 3 pubs within 2 miles.

A bus service stops at the entrance (Service 6) and connects with Windermere Railway station where there is a Booths supermarket with direct access from the  platform.
Or you can use Ulverston Railway station and buses (Service 6) from Ulverston -Windermere stop at Fell Foot park entrance.
