TWO GREAT LOCATIONS - SEASON OPENS MARCH 2024

ROWING BOATS

Rowing is a no-impact moderate activity suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. Each boat sits a maximum of 5 people with one person using a set of oars to propell the boat across the water.

Whether you’re wanting to go fishing, have a picnic or just want a gentle family adventure on the water, these recreational rowing boats are the perfect way to explore Ullswater.

ROWING BOAT HIRE

Rowing boat hire has various options.

Boats can be hired for up to a maximum of 5 people up to 310kg (including dogs) and they can be hired by the hour, for a half-day or full day.

It's a great way to get out on the water in a leisurely way and take in the beautiful scenery all around Ullswater.

We recommend an adult rower as it can be hard work. Children are OK to have a go too, but always come ashore to swap seats first!

All boat hires require somebody over the age of 18 to be out on the lake with anyone under 18 at all times.

See below for full details of hiring a boat.
