Water Based Activities

We’ve Recently partnered up with Derwent Water Marina to offer a range of water-based activities as well! From Row boats to Windsurfing, if you want to get on the water they’ve got something to suit you.


Derwent water marina is based in Portinscale on the shores of Derwent Water in Keswick. For those with experience, you can hire a variety of different craft or if you’ve never done it before you can book an instructor-led session with one of their friendly staff.


Derwent Water Marina’s excellent hire fleet includes a range of over 100 good quality and well-maintained kayaks, canoes, rowing boats, sailing dinghies, stand up paddle boards and windsurfers. Whatever your age or ability, you can be sure to find something to suit. Please note: we do advise that you reserve your craft during busier times of the year.
Derwent Water is a great lake to explore by boat, offering fantastic views in every direction.
• Why not take a picnic and explore one of the islands?
