I visited Ambleside for my hen weekend, we booked the yacht cruise and weren't disappointed. Lawrence, Lynda and Jonathan are lovely people who make you feel very welcome aboard their boat. myself and my friends loved the trip and we will all be booking again :)

Together with 4 friends we enjoyed a short cruise with afternoon tea. We took our own champagne and had a wonderful time. Lawrence and his son looked after us royally and the sun made a well timed appearance after heavy rain in the morning. The food was terrific and where better to enjoy it than in the middle of Windermere? Thank you to our daughter and her partner for the gift and to Impulse Charters for making our day.

We were fortunate enough to get a gloriously sunny day when skippers Lawrence & Jonny took our group out onto Lake Windermere this summer, but even if the weather hadn't been on our side it wouldn't have deterred from the fun we had and the 5 star service we experienced. We had a great time aboard Impulse and I look forward to booking another charter for my next visit to the Lake District. Highly recommended! Thank you Lynda, Jonny & Lawrence!

Skipper Lawrence will tailor make your trip to suit the occasion. Ours was a 70th. Birthday celebration during which, our Birthday Boy together with captains hat took to the helm. It was the most beautiful of days during which we had our own RAF fly past by courtesy of a tornado doing low level sorties over the lake. Other than that, there was little to spoil the peace and tranquility of the occasion except for the clink of champagne glasses, the click of cameras and lots of laughs. A truly memorable day and one that will be remembered for many years to come. For a special celebration, this cannot be beaten.

I was looking for a romantic marriage proposal idea and selected Impulse Charters due to all of the “5 star – Excellent” reviews here on Tripadvisor. Perhaps like me, when you read reviews on a site that aren’t in the hundreds or thousands and they are all excellent with not a single bad review, you wonder if they have just been written by the owners or friends.

If I could think of even one little negative comment to make this review more believable I would write it down, but Lynda, Lawrence and their son John couldn’t have provided a better experience and I just couldn’t fault it.

Everything exceeded expectations by a long shot, the booking service through Lynda couldn’t have been easier (especially after I got the time wrong and Lynda was able to still accommodate me), the yacht was amazing, and best of all Lawrence and his son were such easy going and great hosts.

There were so many little touches that made the experience great, I don’t think there is anything they could do to make it better. I’m positive that after you’ve had your day with Impulse, that you will be here writing the same thing yourself.
