On the Lake


Fancy learning to sail, in a stunning lake with beautiful mountains around you? Want good instructors, nice hot showers and a fab café on the lakeshore? Prefer kayaking, canoeing, paddle-boarding or windsurfing? Look no further – that’s all just a 5 minute stroll.

Actually there is not one but two marinas within 10 minutes from The Mount! We can give you a discount card to use at Nichol End; and we recommend Derwent Water Marina where our children have learnt to sail.

For exhilarating time knee-boarding, wakeboarding or water-skiing, try Low Wood Bay Watersports
