Private Fishing Lessons

Private Fishing Lessons

With over half a mile of Ullswater lake frontage and your own private boathouse and jetty you are in the perfect spot to go fly fishing or line fishing and take in the wonders of Ullswater. Ullswater is thought by many to be the most beautiful of all the lakes in the northern Lake District, a serpentine body of water snaking a seven mile course under the lea of magnificent fells, woodland and mountain.

Whether you are a seasoned pro or fancy a few lessons we can make these arrangements for you. Should you even wish to head out into the middle of Ullswater and fish by boat this is something we are only too happy to arrange for you.

This beautiful lake is the second largest lake in Cumbria at more than seven miles long and just over half a mile wide. Ullswater holds Salmon, Brown Trout, Perch, and perhaps an odd Pike. However, Ullswater's mysterious waters are also home to the very rare Arctic Char and Schelly, an endangered and protected whitefish relic from the last Ice Age.

Please contact us to discuss your personal needs.


Private Guided Walking

Private Guided Walking

For those who like getting up high, there are some of the best mountains and fells on your doorstep, the most famous being Helvellyn and the precipitous Striding Edge. A gentler walk is Aira Force, probably the most famous of the Lake District waterfalls. The main force falls some 70ft below a stone footbridge - so don't forget your camera. So whether you want to start your own Swallows and Amazons adventure or walk in Wordswoth’s footsteps you are in the perfect place. 

Waternook is proud to offer its guests the ability to have a fully qualified private guide that can tailor a walk to your needs and experience.

Please contact us to discuss your personal needs.
