Lake Windermere

Watersports in the Lake District

Let’s go summer 2024! Biased maybe, but we genuinely believe we run watersports from one of the best locations in the Lake District; Grubbins Point on Lake Windermere. From this sheltered bay situated on a private stretch of shoreline, we offer both instructed sessions and equipment (boards / kayaks / canoes) hire and RIB boat tours too.

We also firmly believe that no visit to the Lake District is complete without some time on the water. Guests benefit from onsite free parking, toilets and changing facilities. 

What’s included in our water activities;

  • board, kayak or canoe, paddle, buoyancy aid
  • help getting on the water
  • tips to get you started
  • safety boat cover
  • free parking next to the water
  • use of our changing cabins and portaloo toilets

Wetsuits are available to hire (£5.00 each), or you can bring your own or go without.  Wetsuits aren’t necessary for kayaking or canoeing unless you plan on going for a dip.

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 happily advise
  • a towel
  • wet shoes or trainers you don’t mind getting wet or go barefoot
  • a change of clothes if kayaking – there’s a tendency to get a wet bottom
  • a sense of fun! 🙂

The watersports centre is a ‘pop-up’, from April to September and at the end of the season, we pack up, leave no trace and allow Grubbins Point peace and quiet over the winter before all the fun starts again next year.  With no electricity or running water, we run purely on our inner energy and sunshine. 

PLEASE NOTE; we don’t take online bookings for same-day watersports in case we’re inundated and unable to staff them, so for bookings within 24 hours, please call or email your enquiry and hopefully, we’ll be able to fit you in. 🙂
