We were able to experience a total of four different types of craft which was really helpful. The whole team at Glenridding cant do enough to make your experience special and tailored to your requirements. I will... More

My daughter wanted to improve her sailing skills during our week in the Lake District. As our cottage was near Ullswater, we found this place online and asked if they had something suitable for her level -- moving on from youth to adult levels. Steve went out of his way to arrange an instructor at short notice for a reasonable... More

Spent a wonderful 2 hrs falling out of a laser on a moderately windy day. Staff were very helpful, friendly and accommodating (not laughing too much when I made the rookie error of putting my wetsuit on BACKWARDS!!) Easy to book a craft and no formal certificates were required although I did have prior experience and knowledge. Would certainly go... More

Me and my 10yr old daughter had a 2hr taster lesson with Steve teaching us the basics of sailing last month. Steve's knowledge was fantastic about sailing and also threw in some local interest of the lake too! He was enjoyable to be around and my daughter was very comfortable. His co worker (sorry, didn't get his name) was very... More

I was invited to Glenridding Sailing centre by a close friend of mine and I must admit I was a little anxious about the thought of my first sailing experience. But the experienced, friendly staff at Glenridding sailing centre reassured me and gave me the encouragement I needed. What a thrill ! Sailing on Ullswater was the best ! I... More

Many thanks to the crew who got us out onto the lake in 2x 2 man canoes - we were able to join our friends in their kayaks and explore all of the islands. Very friendly and efficient service and access to good equipment at sensible prices.

A school and scout canoe trip to Ullswater. Thankyou to the people at the centre, especially Steve who straightened our jockey wheel. What a service, drop your trailer and I will take it to the waters edge while you park up and get changed. The children were so grateful for the facilities, didn't have to get changed at the side...

Only being a novice sailor with experience in Wayfarer's, the advice I got from Steve about the Traditional Sailing Boat we hired (for five), was straight forward and really helpful. Had a fantastic time out on the water, and the boat was great (even with my 7 year old in control!). Thank you to the staff for having a smile... More
