There is a fantastic range of events that take place in and around Ullswater each year that celebrate the rich diversity, local history, culture and beauty of the area. Highlights include the world famous Marmalade Festival, the popular Winter Droving, Ullswater Walking Festival or Ullswater’s very own Daff Fest. Or perhaps one of the many sporting events, such as the Ullswater Triathlon or the Epic Lakes Swim is more your cup of tea?

Kayak Shared Experiences at Park Foot Campsite, Pooley Bridge
EVER FANCIED KAYAKING BUT DIDN’T WANT TO THROW YOURSELF IN AT THE DEEP END? YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
Our kayak experience on Ullswater is aimed at people who are complete beginners wanting a ‘have a go experience’, those looking for a fun few hours with like-minded people doing something a little different or those looking for a fun and exciting family day.
Our qualified instructor will teach you some basic skills before kitting you up and getting you on the water. On the lake you will have a journey, practice some skills and try some (optional) challenges. As Kenneth Grahame said “There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
No Spaces available for the morning session? We have an afternoon session on the same day which may have spaces available- afternoon session.
