Let your hair down and enjoy one of the Lake District's most beautiful lakes in peace and quiet. We often have some stunning days in October and as long as you wrap up warm you can have a great trip on the lake in one of our Mystic motorboats. All well behaved dogs are welcome on board so no need to leave your four-legged friend at home!

Another great way to enjoy some beautiful Lake District scenery is to whiz through the trees and pedal your way through our woodland trails with all the family! We have bikes available for all ages here on site so just come and see Phil, Chris and the team down on the lake shore.
