We think Derwent Water is the prettiest lake, close to Keswick and surrounded by the hills of Skiddaw, Cat Bells and Borrowdale. The sheltered coves and islands, along with an abundance of wildlife, make this a fantastic lake to explore by boat.
If you would like to enjoy Derwent Water from the comfort of your own boat, we have 58 berths afloat. There is plenty of room for dinghy or kayak/canoe storage.
Hiring a boat is the perfect way to explore Derwent Water. We offer a wide range of activities including paddle sports, sailing, windsurfing & ghyll scrambling (canyoning).
If you are looking for a base to explore the Lake District, we offer comfortable accommodation with spectacular views in our lakeside self-catering apartments.
In our well stocked shop, we sell chandlery, outboard engines, electric engines, kayaks, canoes, paddle boards and a wide range of water sports accessories and clothing.
