Lake House is situated on a hill overlooking Lake Windermere and many agree that these stunning views are part of what makes our guest house special. So far this summer we have had lovely warm weather, and with the lake glistening in the sun, water sports and lakeside activites are all the more tempting! With this in mind we have put together a selection of on-the-water and lakeside activities to give you some ideas of things to do during your stay at Lake House.
Fancy trying canoeing, sailing, kayaking or even paddleboarding? There are a variety of great places by Windermere Lake where you can book tuition or hire. Windermere Canoe Kayak offers hire and tuition for kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. Or if you are interested in giving sailing a go head down to the Low Wood Bay Sailing School where they offer a range of sailing classes, and different types of boats and dinghies you can take out for the day.
If watersports are a bit extreme for your taste and you prefer to enjoy the beautiful lake views from a dryer, steadier vessel, Windermere Lake Cruises offer a fab selection of cruises all year round. To make it even better, you can get 10% discount tickets for Windermere Lake Cruises here at Lake House. You can board at Waterhead Pier which is just a short walk from our location. Throughout summer Windermere Lake Cruises also offer a wider variety of trips including evening cruises, and buffet cruises with live music.
There is much to enjoy on-the-water at Lake Windermere, but finding a perfect spot to sit by the lakeshore and perhaps enjoy a picnic or an ice-cream can be just as enjoyable. You can get delicious locally sourced ice-cream from the Deck at our sister hotel the Regent Hotel, which is again only a short walk from Lake House. When it comes to somewhere to sit, Millerground is a hot spot in Windermere, there is parking nearby and several picturesque stone beaches to sit on next to the millerground jettys.
