Owner description: The lake runs a serpentine course in three reaches with Helvellyn crowning the plateau at the head of the lake; at 3117 ft it is England’s third highest mountain. Ullswater ‘Steamers’ create the perfect opportunity to combine a cruise with some of the most famous and spectacular walks in the Lake District. With miles of bridleways linked by ‘Steamer’ routes there are so many opportunities for exploring the area. Free commentary app download for apple and android users.

We took one of the ullswater steamers around the lake last week when my parents visited. The weather was amazing which helps but the trip was great - scenery amazing and service also very good!

It was raining during our outward trip from Glendidding to Pooley Bridge but it did not dampen the scenic views on offer even with some mists and fog. The return trip was much better as it stopped raining and there were bits of sunshine.The boats were well maintained and very clean. Staff were all friendly. Recommended!

Fantastic views of an absolutely stunning part of Britain, very friendly staff, and a very relaxing trip the length of Ullswater. I wouldn't fault this attraction.

We were based in Glenridding for the week so ideally located to use this service. The all day tickets enabled us to stop off at different points and walk round Ullswater. The staff were pleasant and helpful. 3 years ago this service came in handy when we were in poor weather conditions having to find an alternative route for our coast to coast walk, as across the top to Shap was not allowed by rangers and mountain rescue on that particular day. We had much better weather this time, enjoyed the cruises and walks that day.
