We may be biased but genuinely believe that we run watersports from one of the best locations in the Lake District; Grubbins Point on Windermere. From this sheltered bay situated on a private stretch of shoreline we offer both instructed sessions and boat hire.
Journeying in these Canadian style boats is the ultimate in relaxation as you paddle around the small islands and bays off Graythwaite Estate’s private shoreline. We feel that no visit to the Lake District is complete without spending some time on the water and this is an ideal way to do just that. Hire may be your preference, rather than opting for an instructed session, if you have previous canoeing experience.
Our 2-seater canoes are spacious enough for 2 adults and up to 2 small children, a bag and / or picnic. Our 3-seater canoes comfortably hold up to 3 adults, again with space for a bag and / or picnic.
We require at least one adult in your party to be on the water. You can opt for one hour, two hours of you may prefer a half day adventure.
Guests to Graythwaite Adventure can enjoy a variety of other awesome land and water-based experiences; 4x4 off-road driving, clay pigeon shooting, archery, axe throwing, air rifles, kayaking, paddleboarding, bushcraft, RIB rides and more. Experience : Explore : Escape.
ItineraryUpon arrival at Grubbins Point, please make use of our free parking before meeting one of our friendly team at our watersports hub. Following introductions, we'll kit you out with buoyancy aids and head to the water's edge where the canoes will be ready for you. We'll run through the basics and answer any questions you have before helping you set off. How far you venture depends on your experience and the weather conditions on the day. We'll provide everything you need; canoes, paddles and buoyancy aids. All you need to do is turn up, get paddling and enjoy. Wetsuits aren't necessary, unless you're planning to swim. If you have your own wetsuit you're more than welcome to bring this or we have a range of sizes available to hire. Please note, if you're not entirely confident to hire a boat, we'd recommend one of our instructed sessions.
This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:
- Hen / Stag parties
- School groups
