#Bootique Exploring the Lake

The thrill of exploring Britain’s longest lake by boat, canoe or kayak!  Being master of your own craft gives such a sense of adventure, and it's easy to understand why books like Swallows and Amazons are still popular today. We have regular guests who kayak up from Low Wood Bay Watersports Centre for morning coffee. It doesn't get much better than that!

If you would rather someone else at the helm, there are regular Windermere Lake Cruises from the pier opposite the hotel. Leave the stress of driving behind and enjoy a tranquil sail to a choice of lake-side destinations.

Our Recommended Lake District Itinerary

There are so many exciting things to do in the Lake District it can be difficult to know where to start, so our itinerary should help those who may not be familiar with the area and who may be travelling without a car. 

Waterhead is the perfect base for exploring – right next to the jetty for cruising the lake and with a bus stop perfectly positioned for day trips throughout the beautiful Lake District countryside.
