Boat hire

There's lots of boat hire to choose from! Let our electric motor boats take the strain. Or maybe you'd like to row, row, row your boat in our rowing boats?

Try out sit on top kayaks, open canoes and have fun splashing about on paddle boards. If you can sail why not hire one of our sailing dinghies and follow in the wake of Arthur Ransome's "Swallows and Amazons"?

Where to go

From the water you can see magnificent views of The Old Man of Coniston mountain. Cruise past John Ruskin's house at Brantwood or head south towards Peel Island. Take a look at the Coniston lake users' guide leaflet (PDF) and Coniston map (PDF).

Safety equipment

Every boat hire includes instruction from one of our trained staff. Safety equipment such as buoyancy aids is also covered.
