About Us

You will not find a greater selection of boats available to hire, demo or buy anywhere in the Lake District. We are just twenty minutes from the M6 directly on the shore of Lake Windermere with its unique mountainous setting.

We offer kayak hire, stand-up-paddleboard hire and mountain bike hire from our boathouse as well as "Pedal & Paddle" hire packages offering a full days activity on the water and along the shore.

From our boathouse jetty at Ferry Nab, Bowness-on-Windermere, you can explore many islands including  ‘Thompson’s Holme’ island where you can land and take a break.

There are scenic bike routes on our doorstep.  The most popular route takes you over the ferry to the western shoreline of Windermere.  Route maps are provided.

You will find daily updates and latest news on our Facebook page or by clicking the news tab.

Our boat house at Ferry Nab. Follow signs for the the Hawkshead Car Ferry.  We are on the right just before the ferry.  See you there!
