Pete and all the staff at Glenridding Sailing Centre work hard at giving my family a fun but safe time. When I leave I feel like my battery's have been recharged. I cant think of any way to make things better. SPOT ON.

My daughters had a birthday party based on the book swallows and amazons at Glenridding sailing centre. It was a great success, the staff were extremely helpful and made the day extremely enjoyable! They jumped off cliffs and sailed round the lake to find clues on a treasure hunt. A huge thank you to the staff for making it very... More

For 3 hours on the lake, we paid £40 to hire a canoe. We paddled around many small islands, stopped along the lakeside for a picnic and enjoyed the views. 3 hours is more than enough time to take in the breathtaking scenery and to enjoy the canoeing experience!

My daughter and I have had a great couple of days tuition, learning to dinghy sail. Our instructor James was superb and managed to instruct us both allowing us to complete our first levels/stages. My daughter summed up the 2 day course as - awesome! What more can you say - highly recommended! Many thanks to Steve & James.

Steve and his team made our visit a real pleasure, give or take the wise cracks, we have been before, but each visit times with different conditions. This time with a cross section of extended family, we needed flexible and fun support and we got it. The Classic dinghy are great fun and stable while the opportunity to visit Islands... More

The GSC provides excellent facilities for visitors such as great launch facilities, including tractor if required, a communal rest room with free coffee and tea, clean toilets/ changing room with shower but most of all a team of staff beyond compare. Pete and Steve head up the team who have an extremely positive approach to problem solving, no issue is... More

A really excellent introduction to sailing. The centre has a great atmosphere, very welcoming for us newbies. Three of us were taken out by Elanor, our very calm and patient instructor. We were interested in getting to grips with sailing a traditional boat at a leisurely pace. However the whether had us working hard as it was a bit choppy.... More

We visited the centre on a whim late on a thursday afternoon in June. Exactly what we hoped for, helpful staff, well used but good quality canoes, easy hire process and a fair price. The place was very quiet and my only gripe was that we had to make an effort to find a staff member before we could get... More

We ( my friends and I ) had a superb time last weekend on a level 1 RYA sailing course at this centre. The instructor was excellent and the staff really made us welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They really made us feel special. My children went on the " kids week" and our eldest daughter (who... More

Excellent, patient and very friendly instructors had me sailing at the level I wanted to achieve by the end of the week - even with fairly strong winds, interesting weather and my constant chatter! Have also visited the centre with our children and can't recommend it highly enough.
