Water activities on Windermere
Hill of Oaks is located on the south-east side of Windermere and boasts exclusive lake frontage along the shore of the lake for around a mile. All our guests can make use of the six jetties and the multiple slipways for boat launching. If you are a self-catering or touring guest, you're welcome to bring your own canoe, paddle board, wind surf or roof top boat and make use of the beaches and slipways. Charges apply - £20 per item, per stay. This can be added upon booking.
Please note the piers are for our holiday home owners use only. Our holiday home owners have access to power boat storage and all boat launching facilities including the jetties.
This service is suspended in 2021 - Windermere Lake Cruises pick up daily during the summer holidays from our twin piers and run a service to Lakeside . You can take a cruise from Bowness Pier a short drive away to visit The Lakes Aquarium, Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway, or enjoy a cocktail or two at the Lakeside Hotel & Spa. Or you can travel further afield to Wray Castle, Bowness-on-Windermere, Ambleside and Brockhole.
