3. The Lake District
It goes without saying that the Lake District is going to offer ample opportunity for kayakers to get closer to nature. Book one of our luxury hideaways near the Lakes and make best use of the area’s 16 lakes and tarns, also known as meres or waters.
There’s plenty of infrastructure for visitors who wish to enjoy the beauty of Cumbria’s waters, which helps the appeal of this area. As, in between walks, treks, swims, cycles, boat trips and watersports, guests can also explore lots of lovely villages. The best ‘lakes’ in the, er, Lakes for kayaking include Winderemere (of course), Ullswater, Derwentwater and Coniston.
As the longest lake in England, Windermere can be hard to beat for space, although it is popular and busy. While, smaller Thirlmere is another option for those seeking somewhere a little bit quieter. It’s also worth remembering that Cumbria has many rivers to offer, too.
