Boat Hire

Derwentwater is the perfect playground for anyone wanting to get out onto the water and enjoy all that it has to offer. Being shallower than some of the other lakes, means that the water is often warmer – which is a welcome bonus if you want to splash, swim and have fun. The unique setting and direction of the lake makes for interesting winds and fun sailing activities, whilst still having sheltered bays available in which to kayak more sedately. Here at Nichol End, we warmly welcome you to enjoy an activity you love or try something completely new.
