Lynda and Lawrence were absolutely amazing at helping make the proposal to my partner perfect. Accommodating to every request, and executed without fault and to perfection!

Highly recommended to all who are visiting Lake District or Windemere area.

“Icing on the Cake”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We arranged a week in the lakes as a quick break . I have sailed since I was sixteen and have a day skipper cert but my wife really likes to relax.So we booked a three hour charter with Lawrence.

This does exactly what it claims .You can do as much or as little as you like and while I was able sail the boat for most of the three hours my wife was able to relax with a glass of champagne, though I was able to join her after handing over the boat back to Lawrence.

Lawrence is a very experienced sailor and even the most nervous and inexperienced should feel safe on this excellent charter.The boat is well looked after and has all the latest equipment and the surrounding scenery cannot be bettered.We were lucky to have a dry day with a bit of a breeze so the sailing was excellent.

From an admin aspect Lynda is totally organised and the whole booking went through very smoothly.

Some may consider the cost of this a bit pricey but remember you are chartering a boat and skipper which will take you and as many as ten of your friends or as few as you want.To us it was an excellent day out and well worth the money.The icing on the cake of an excellent holiday.

Lynda and Lawrence were incredibly communicative and helpful from the outset. They are made our wedding reception trip very special and memorable for both our guests and ourselves. We highly recommend Impulse charters, and cannot thank them enough for an amazing afternoon.

“A fantastic three hours on Windermere”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

A group of seven of us have just come away from a weekend in the lakes, the highlight of which was undoubtedly the three+ hours we spent on Windermere on board the Impulse. A great combination of relaxing sight-seeing and a demonstration of what a luxury yacht can do on the water. Lawrence and Johnny couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and all the advance preparations - including arranging for collection by dinghy from our hotel's jetty - were organised perfectly by Lynda. A big thank you to the team and would have no hesitation in doing it all again!
