Overview
More
Brockhole on Windermere offers activities to suit everyone, from toddlers to adventure seekers to those in search of an ultra-relaxing experience whilst enjoying their time in the Lake District. It's all here in one place, set against stunning mountain views on the shores of Windermere in the Lake District National Park, Cumbria. From family activities to glorious garden tours and seasonal events, there really is something for all ages. Why not explore 30 acres of beautiful historical gardens and grounds? Or picnic by the lakeshore and enjoy secret beaches with the family? If the children are feeling more adventurous they can swing or bounce through ancient woodland on Treetop Trek and Treetop Nets. Down by the lakeshore, you can hire kayaks and rowing boats, enjoy or catch the cruise boat across the lake, depending on the season. There's also archery, bike hire and mini golf on offer during the season. Don't forget to finish your day by taking in the stunning lake views offering stunning views towards the distant Langdale Pikes at the terrace café, while enjoying local ales and dishes. There's also a well-stocked gift shop and ever changing exhibition space to enjoy indoors.

We called here in the afternoon on our way back from Ambleside to take the kids pony riding. The rides were £15 for 15 minutes, but was well worth it for the experience. You take a short walk down to the lake and then along...More

The owner of this lovely place & park, the National Trust, has managed to attract the crowds with courageous investment into a tree top walk, tree net experience and a super long zip wire (don't miss it!). Complemented with a few other outdoor offerings like...More

I agree with others that there's a lot here for children to do and it's ostensibly 'free to enter'. However, when you get onsite, all activities have to be paid for (and on busy high season days, I would imagine you'd have to pre-book most...More

Many thanks for your question. The only stipulation we have here is that we ask our boats not to head to our left in a southerly direction as we like to have sight of visitors in their boats at all times. Boats can explore... More
