Water Sports in the Lake District

We may be biased but genuinely believe that we run water sports and activities from one of the best locations in Lake District; Grubbins Point on Lake Windermere.

From this sheltered bay situated on a private stretch of shoreline we offer both instructed sessions and boat / board hire.

We also firmly believe that no visit to the Lake District is complete without some time on the water. Guests benefit from free parking, toilet and changing facilities. What’s stopping you? 

What’s included in our water activities; board, kayak or canoe, buoyancy aid, and safety boat cover.  Wetsuits are available to hire, or you can bring your own or go without.  Wetsuits aren’t necessary for kayaking or canoeing unless you plan on swimming. 

What to bring; swimwear for underneath a wetsuit, or comfortable and warm clothing depending upon the activity – if you’re unsure, please ask, and we’ll advise, a towel, footwear you don’t mind getting wet, and a sense of fun! 🙂

Our watersports centre is a ‘pop-up’, from April to October and at the end of the season, we pack up, leave no trace and allow Grubbins Point peace and quiet over the winter months before all the fun starts again next year.  Click on the below links for more information and to book. 

PLEASE NOTE; we don’t take online bookings for same-day/next-day watersports lessons in case we’re inundated and unable to staff them, so for lesson bookings within 48 hours, please call or email your enquiry and hopefully, we’ll be able to fit you in :). For hires, please feel free to book away. 🙂
