Steve was a fab host and set up our crew of 20 odd age ranges with as many boats/ kayaks as he could. He made sure we were safe and happy all the way through our experience and one of the best sailing centre in the Lake District.

this was our second summer visit to the centre after such an amazing time last year. We hired a canadian canoe with our little girl who is almost 3. She was catered for very well with a small life jacket and a mini oar so she could join in which she loved, and last year when she was new we... More

We were staying beside Ullswater and I wanted to try my hand at sailing again after a looong (decades!) break. My 17 year old son who had never been in a dinghy before was also game to try. Friendly staff member got us set up very efficiently with a traditional gaff-rigged boat and we were soon out there catching some... More

Thanks to all the guys at Glenridding Sailing Centre for a fantastic weekend. My two sons and i have just finished an RYA dinghy sailing course with Steve (the South African Bruce Willis as my sons nicknamed him), and Jamie. We all had a great time. Would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking to entertain/engage teenagers.

This is the second year running we have kept our kayak at Glenridding sailing centre whilst holidaying in the lakes. Many thanks to Steve and all the team for making us feel so welcome!

Loved the setting on Ullswater, hired canoes, could stop of as we did on the shore & have lunch, could also go to one of four little islands. It was superb fun.

We did a 2 day sailing course to RYA Level 1 and had a brilliant time. All the staff were really helpful and friendly and our instructor, Steph, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We also canoed and kayaked at the end of the week as the wind dropped and generally had a fantastic time. Thanks very much to Steve and everyone... More

We rented a canoe, only £15 ph..may sound like quite a lot but it seems cheap once you're out there on the lake...so beautiful and so much fun!

Our kids did a two day beginners sailing course during half term. All the guys at Genridding Sailing Centre were friendly, helpful and very approachable. In particular their instructor, Lee was brilliant with the kids, a great teacher, fun and very patient. We also hired a dinghy, which was easy to do and good quality kit. Thank you all for... More
