Things to do

Discover England's most beautiful lake

Nestled in a picturesque location, just a stone's throw from the Lakeland village of Pooley Bridge, Waterfoot Park is the perfect base for exploring the rest of Ullswater. Embark on exhilarating cycle rides through the fells, take to the water and discover the lake's hidden beaches by canoe, and marvel at Wordsworth's famous daffodils on the Ullswater Way. And after all that, take a seat in one of the many cosy pubs or tea rooms and enjoy a true taste of the Lakes.
