Self Drives & Rowing Boats
Explore Windermere at your own pace with the hire of your own row or motor boat
Discover the beauty and tranquillity of Windermere at your own pace with one of our powered or rowing boats.
No boating experience is necessary as we provide full safety instructions, a sailing guide to the lake and life jackets for everyone on board. If you get into trouble at any time, our safety boat will come to your rescue. Choose a boat to suit your day from a romantic traditional row boat or a historic powered wooden boat. Our modern cabin boats have a handy sliding cover to shelter you from the elements and are extremely easy to drive. All of our boats carry up to 6 people and can be hired from 1 hour up to half a day (4 hours). Our popular hire times are below
