The ever more popular way to paddle around the small islands and bays off Graythwaite Estate’s private shoreline.

These boats are paddled with double-bladed paddles, they’re super steady, great fun and a preferred choice. For experienced paddlers or complete novices, the benefits of an instructed session are that you will master the basic strokes quickly and journey with ease to make the most of your session. We’ll also be there for safety support for added confidence. We require at least one adult in your party, but not necessarily taking part. The lessons are 1.5 hours long.

Or you may opt for kayak hire if you’ve paddled before. We’re happy to hire to water confident first timers too. We require at least one adult in your party to be on the water. You can opt for one hour, two hours of you may prefer a half day adventure.

Our single seaters are spacious enough for 1 person with a dry bag and / or picnic. Our double seaters comfortably hold 2 people with space for a dry bag and / or picnic. What better place to kayak than England’s largest lake, in the heart of the Lake District National Park; Lake Windermere? As with all our experiences, this will be a private booking for your party if you book a lesson.

Watersports hub: we generally run our full-time watersports offering from the beginning of April to the end of October. That means, however, that you may miss some awesome winter days out on the water, and we wouldn’t want that!

So, please get in touch with us to discuss out of season watersports lessons and equipment hire. Our team are busy year round with land-based adventures, but love any reason to get out on the lake.
