Overview

Brockhole on Windermere offers activities to suit everyone, from toddlers to adventure seekers to those in search of an ultra-relaxing experience whilst enjoying their time in the Lake District. It's all here in one place, set against stunning mountain views on the shores of Windermere in the Lake District National Park, Cumbria. From family activities to glorious garden tours and seasonal events, there really is something for all ages. Why not explore 30 acres of beautiful historical gardens and grounds? Or picnic by the lakeshore and enjoy secret beaches with the family? If the children are feeling more adventurous they can swing or bounce through ancient woodland on Treetop Trek and Treetop Nets. Down by the lakeshore, you can hire kayaks and rowing boats, enjoy or catch the cruise boat across the lake, depending on the season. There's also archery, bike hire and mini golf on offer during the season. Don't forget to finish your day by taking in the stunning lake views offering stunning views towards the distant Langdale Pikes at the terrace café, while enjoying local ales and dishes. There's also a well-stocked gift shop and ever changing exhibition space to enjoy indoors.

From the lovely covered picnic tables to the fab adventure playground, this place is a hit. A brilliant and inexpensive day out for families. We WILL be back to do the nets - our 3yr old can't wait and neither can we.

Booked kids in for 2 hours costing £18.00 each. They'd had enough after an hour. Looks a lot bigger on website. Really disappointing for the price.

Brockhole in an activity park for everyone adults included, it is however weather dependant. I would recommend a pick nick/pact lunch as food is expensive on site. A really good day weather permitting.
