Welcome to Park Foot Holiday Park

Park Foot is a family run camping and caravan park, just 1 mile from Pooley Bridge. Set in magnificent scenery, our park accommodates touring caravans, tents and motorhomes.We also provide Luxurious self catering accommodation in holiday houses and lodges sleeping 2- 10 people, most with stunning lake views. We have some situated on the park, a few in Pooley Bridge and one tucked away towards Howtown.

Park Foot Holiday Park has been welcoming campers to their park near Pooley Bridge since 1951, with founder Jim Allen adapting the land after his grandparents offered bed and breakfast accommodation to guests for 50 years beforehand.

Guests can also enjoy the excellent food and drink experience at TJ’s Bar and Restaurant located on the park, which now includes a pool table to provide extra entertainment.

Visitors can relax at their own leisure as Park Foot has its own lakeshore beach or go for a paddle on Ullswater from the park’s launching and parking facilities.
