Went to Ambleside on the boat, drinks and sweets can be bought, can sit on deck or undercover, there was a comontater but to be honest there isn’t much to talk about

This is a cute little family run business. It wasn't quite what we expected as we thought there would be more to do on arrival in the towns where we got off the boat and train but maybe we just picked the wrong trip. The actual boat and train trips were organised wonderfully though and lovely friendly staff, especially on the steam train.

Opted for the freedom of the lake tickets which was around £20.
The boats were all clean and the staff welcoming and giving history of the lake and surrounding buildings when the cruises started.
Would definitely recommend to take the cruises as a nice way to get around and see the surrounding areas of the lake.

When in the lakes a boat trip on Windermere is a must, inexpensive, they have 3/4 different trips and an on board local historian to keep you informed on the areas history, there are refreshments on sale including a bar area

Thank you for your lovely review and five star rating. We're so pleased you enjoyed the cruise. I think local historian might be a slightly overselling it- we have a commentary which includes the history of the company and area but thank you for your praise and we're delighted you enjoyed it. We hope to welcome you again one day.
