I am a regular to launch my canoe from here. Staff are a brilliant bunch of people and always super friendly and helpful. My kids love coming as well as often as we can.

I hired a traditional sailing boat for 3 hours to take the non-sailing family (wife, son, grandma and dog) out on the water. I booked by phone (you can also book by email - but I recommend phoning as they check their email intermittently when busy at weekends) and had a very friendly and warm welcome. On the day the...

Fantastic setting in one of the most beautiful parts of the lakes. Kids week was lots of fun, apparently the 'best holiday ever', when the weather wasn't so good there was plenty of hot chocolate to help warm up and lots of 'action' to be had by adventurous small person. Enormous thanks to the fantastic team at GSC, we will... More

Our two boys (aged 8 and 9) took part in the Swallows and Amazons adventure at the weekend and had a wonderful time. It was a glorious sight to see them all setting off across the lake in beautiful old-fashioned sailing boats, and we felt confident that they were in good hands. They met us at the end of the...

I took a friend and his 2 sons sailing on Saturday and hired a traditional "Swallows and amazon's" boat from Glenridding Sailing Centre. It was absolutely brilliant. Extremely helpful staff and a very safe boat, together with glorious weather all made for a great couple of hours.

Our kids did a Swallows and Amazon day which seemed to involve a bit of low key tuition whilst sailing to islands to look for a message in a bottle, a map and treasure along with a water fight with captain Flint. Our kids loved it and are keen to go again. It was a little pricey but they have... More

We wanted to introduce our 4 children to the joys of sailing and decided to see if we could hire a traditional boat for the 6 of us to explore the lake. The staff were incredibly helpful and despite the lack of wind we had a great time. The dinghy was ideal for our large family and we would thoroughly... More

From being aboard the Ullswater Steamer, we had to try this out. We chose canoeing, but there were many other boating experiences to choose from. The staff were very helpful, informative, friendly and seemed to love their job (friendly beardy man)! Us sailors were on the water for an hour and a half and had an excellent experience on Lake...
