We booked our session kayaking on Wast Water quite last minute and very late in the season, but West Lakes Adventure were more than accommodating to our needs. From our initial contact with Caroline to getting out onto the water with Stuart and Ricky - we had the most fantastic time! We're definitely going to be using West Lakes Adventure... More

After a few mails and calls to channel our last-minute climbing trip arrangement (yep, we were a tad late, yet perfectly managed and accommodated by West Lakes Adventures), the day was finally there... outdoor climbing in the Lake District. After warm welcome and the safety introductions, we set out to a nearby crag to do our first climb of the... More

Can't recommend this place highly enough. From initial contact to find out information, the easy booking process, the high standard of equipment and having the pleasure of Al's company and expert tuition for these activities made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. A highly professional set up evident from start to finish. Anyone looking for adventure then ghyll scrambling is a... More

Me and my two boys did stand up paddle boarding on Wast Water. Al our instructor was great (Al), we were up and paddling within minutes and he entertained us and taught us how to develop our skills. The weather being a wonderful sunny day helped, but I think we would have still enjoyed it without as we were provided... More

We did these two events on consecutive days, family of four with a 9yr old boy and 12yr old girl. Both loved it all as did the adults. Well organised and well supervised by 'Al'. Would definitely recommend and will definitely book again when next in the area - probably try something different next time though!

Thank you to WLA for taking my two daughters (aged 7 and 4) for a fantastic morning's climbing adventure in Eskdale. The girls loved the experience - it gave them so much confidence and fun!! Can't wait to do it again soon!!

We booked a 3 hour morning session with West Lakes Adventure Paddleboarding on Wastwater in July. The service was excellent from start to finish. Caroline was extremely helpful and welcoming and the instructor was equally very welcoming and knowledgeable. We felt safe throughout the session and all the equipment was supplied and in excellent condition. Being novices we thoroughly enjoyed... More

We wanted a watery activity in the Lake District and were lucky enough to have West lakes adventures on our doorstep! When we dropped by, they were friendly and encouraging and we booked an afternoon's kayaking on Wastwater. With fantastic weather, a beautifully calm lake and a great teacher Stuart, we kitted up and took to the water. I thoroughly... More

I booked for my two children and my husband to go canoeing on the West Lake. The scenery was out of this world and it made an amazing back drop to do the water sport. The lady who ran West Lakes was very nice and lovely to deal with as was the instructor who was very knowledgable and made the... More
