Ullswater 'Steamers' in Cumbria

Ullswater ‘Steamers’ celebrate their 150th year sailing on England’s most beautiful lake. Currently we have four vessels operating on Ullswater ; Lady of the Lake originally launched in 1877 and Raven in 1889. Lady Dorothy joined us in 2001 and Lady Wakefield in 2007.
Ullswater referred to as the ‘Dark Lake’ is steeped in myth and mystery. Linked to Arthurian legend, transport yourself through time as you set sail with us on a voyage of discovery through this spectacular valley.
A valley with a rich biodiversity of wildlife whose ancient woodlands and fells provide breeding habitats for some of our rarer species such as red deer, red squirrels and barnacle geese.
The lake runs a serpentine course in three reaches with Helvellyn crowning the plateau at the head of the lake; at 3117 ft it is England’s third highest mountain.
Ullswater ‘Steamers’ create the perfect opportunity to combine a cruise with some of the most famous and spectacular walks in the Lake District. With miles of bridleways linked by ‘Steamer’ routes there are so many opportunities for exploring the area or simply relax and enjoy the glory of nature through the seasons.
