Went along to enquire about hiring kayakes before going for lunch and found very helpful and relaxed staff. Wetsuits and life jackets included in very reasonable price. We were the only ones hiring kayakes that afternoon and practically had the lake to ourselves. Really fun...More

My son really enjoyed his time sailing on Ullswater as part of the activity week but particularly loved jumping from high rocks into the water! Thanks to all

Booked for two days sailing tuition this summer and then went back for a third. Going back in September - what more can we say (apart from "sorry you lost your hat, Tom")!

Popped in here with the wife and daughter one afternoon to do some kayaking. Fabulous staff. Very welcoming. Changing facilities with showers. A lot more relaxed than similar setups on other lakes. Will definitely return 👍

Staff are very helpful and friendly. We hired a canoe for a morning. A very popular place so it is worth getting there early on sunny days to ensure you can get parked.
