Starting point

Brockhole Visitor Centre
Half way between Windermere and Ambleside on the A591, Windermere,
LA23 1LJ


Come and join this amazing route incorporating a boat trip across Windermere Lake.  Starting from Brockhole Visitor Centre you head across Windermere Lake to access the peaceful western shore.  Once disembarked at Bark Barn Jetty, make your way north on perfect surfaces designed with cyclists in mind to the impressive Wray Castle.  With plenty to see at the Castle it will be the perfect time for a breather and refreshments before making your way back to the jetty and returning via the bike boat back to Brockhole Visitor Centre.

A wide variety of tasty treats are available from the café, but you are also welcome to bring your own picnic lunch on this great ride. This route is just perfect for anybody visiting the Lakes and you will be surprised just what a difference a boat ride makes to take you away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness on the opposite side of the water!
