Waterhead conference facilities
Waterhead is perfectly located for guests to get out onto the lake either from the famous Windermere Lake Cruises jetty or on smaller craft. It’s also ideal for getting onto the fells and explore the surrounding countryside – our friendly hotel staff will be able to provide you with a number of mapped walks for your enjoyment. We can recommend local corporate events companies, who are experts at delivering corporate days and teambuilding experiences to a high standard.
When you choose to host at one of English Lakes' conference and meeting venues, you’ll be able to take advantage of the great outdoors onsite, whether it's our gardens with lake views or the wider countryside of the beautiful Lake District.
