Whatever you like - we can make it happen!

Did you know we can arrange a wide range of experiences for you, and you can start most of them right from our doorstep at your convenience? No having to fit in with group itineraries and set timetables. Whether you want a leisurely sample of outdoor life, an extreme adventure - or no outdoor life at all, except through the window of a guided driven tour or stately home, we can arrange that for you. The lakes are becoming known as the Outdoor Adventure Capital of the UK, and rightly so. Ullswater is lucky to enjoy the best of all that is on offer, and we can call upon the skills of qualified professionals to help you indulge a spontaneous whim or realise a life-long ambition. Canoeing, cliff-jumping, wild swimming, ghyll scrambling, bushcraft skills, sailing, mountain biking from easy to extreme, guided walks with local history thrown in, riding, fishing, chauffeur driven guided tours – the best way to see all of the lakes spectacular and dramatic scenery; to mention a few. Our closest neighbours are the nationally awarding winning Ullswater Yacht Club, and Sailing School - who offer courses and taster sessions, including popular paddle boarding. You can even hire a ‘Steamer’ all to yourself. Or have a privately guided tour of an historic house. So whether a gentle early morning wildlife watching canoe trip takes your fancy, or having a go at beating the latest Youtube record breaking descent of Nan Bield Pass by bike, (and have a video of you doing so), just ask. Please note we provide these contacts purely to help you get the maximum enjoyment out of your visit to Sharrow Bay. Ullswater is one of the most special places in the world, and we want to make it easier for you to enjoy all that the great outdoors offer
