At Lodore we are blessed with both a great location and some great facilities.

With the majority of lake users staying towards the Keswick end we constantly find ourselves on a quiet and peaceful expanse of lake, the only way to experience the "Queen of Lakes". We also have plenty of perfect little bays and brooks to hide away from any weather that might come our way!

Our purpose built offices and changing rooms have solar energy providing light and heat and with toilets on site every need is catered for in a green and clean fashion.

On this site you should be able to find all the information you need, but if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

Every now and again we'd like to send you our newsletter containing great offers, news and interesting facts...

"Thank you very much for dealing with our first sailing lesson during the recent half term in such a friendly, reassuring and professional manner."
