“Dinghy sailing”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Stunning lake to gain further experience in a safe environment prior to trying out at sea. There is a choice of dinghies for hire as well as boat cruises on the lake, kayaks, paddle boards and also cycles to tour round the lake. The hire of a dinghy is from 1 hour up to all day if preferred.

“Great”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Located on a beautiful part of Lake Coniston, sits Coniston Boating Centre. A great place for all the family where you can hire Rowing boats, Kayaks, motor boats and more! I really enjoyed my trip there and would definitely recommend it!

Pretty area for a picnic or something from the cafe. Had we got there earlier in the day we would have tried something on the water. Looking forward to returning next time.

“Good variety of options on offer”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Offers variety to suit all tastes from motorboat to kayaks. Easy and good service and fair prices. Motorboats are slow but as you are let loose on the Lake with allcomers it's probably a good thing!
