Get on the water and explore England’s largest natural lake with panoramic mountain views which will blow your mind. Windermere at 10.5 miles long, 1 mile wide and 220 feet deep is one of the most popular destinations for watersports hire activities in the Lake District. Our base at Fell Foot on the southern tip of Lake Windermere is set within the National Trust’s Fell Foot park - a very special place which never fails to impress. Whether you want to hire a rowboat, paddle a kayak or hire a stand up paddleboard, we have something for everyone.
Access to Fell Foot & parking information
Fell Foot is a very popular destination with limited parking and therefore to guarantee entry, all visitors must book a ticket in advance, including National Trust members. Please arrive to the site 45 minutes before your booking and then check in 15 minutes before you hire time slot.
When you arrive, please have your booking confirmation details ready for the welcome team. They will direct you to our base and explain where everything is. There is plenty to do and so we encourage you to bring your friends and family and make a day of it. Picnics are welcomed (no BBQs are allowed) or you can enjoy a host of quality on-site treats including barista coffee, lunch at the Boathouse café, fresh stonebaked pizza from a unique Landrover pizza oven or an ice cream from the parlour to get you in the holiday spirit.
