Description: CAFE: The cafe is undergoing refurbishment this winter after severe flooding in December 2015. We are trying to ensure that as a minimum tea, coffee and loos are available for bertholders, members and passing walkers. BOAT HIRE AND TUITION Is still available but is very much dependent on the weather conditions on the day. MOORINGS Moorings are available for the 2016 season. KESWICK LAUNCH Is unable to call at Nichol End at the moment due to damaged jetties. We can offer a shuttle service to and from Keswick on one of our boats to connect in with Keswick Launch. This is weather dependent and on demand. WORKSHOP The workshop was also flooded and we are only accepting small engine repairs at present. See our facebook page for updates. We are doing our very best to reopen and resume our full service for Easter 2016.

“lovely cuppa and great scones”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Popped in here after completing 12 miles of walking had a lovely refreshing cup of tea and an excellent sultana scone only slight drawback was we didnt get there till 3pm and all the fresh cherry scones had gone and my wife had to have a warmed up frozen one which wasn't quite the same but still very good.
We love this place and always make a point of coming here plus its great value.

“lovely place”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We set off walking around the lake, and stopped here half way round for a re-fuel lunch break.
It is a lovely place, you can sit inside (warmth) or outside and enjoy the activities that are going on around you.
We got one of the lovely famous big scones! and yes the are big!! We got it with jam & cream, had to rest a while after until we were able to start walking again. It cost us £8 altogether for 2 scones and 2 cans of pop.
They also have a big menu that serves lots of things, soup, baguettes, sandwiches, cakes, scones etc! :)
When returning to derwent water, will deffo come back here! thanks for the excellent and smiley services

“Crazy Lakeside Scenes & Scones!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I've been visiting Nichol End Marine - boy & man - for over 40 years and it's great to see how it's developed from a magically small green hut to the thriving waterside adventure centre it's become. There's always stuff going on, so to sit in (or outside) the café tucking into scones which seem to be scaled to match nearby Skiddaw and the size and quality of which you're unlikely to witness anywhere else - is a real treat. And when you're exhausted from watching all the waterbourne activity, you can catch the ferry to Keswick or round the Lake. How good's that?

“lakeside coffee”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

After a walk round the lake we enjoyed an excellent Cappuchino here. They also have on the menu very large (massive) tray baked square 'scones' which would feed an army of fellwalkers or canoeists. Four of us shared one!
