The Lake District

Seen the film? Read the book? We've got Swallows and Amazons fever. Take a trip to Arthur Ransome's world and discover the beautiful Lake District, including Coniston Water and Derwent Water that star in the new film. Let the adventures begin! (Click on the picture for more). 

Steam Yacht Gondola

Tour Coniston Water aboard a Victorian steam-powered yacht, arguably the real Captain Flint's houseboat

High Strawberry Gardens

The National Trust have lots of lovely family cottages including this gem on the banks of Lake Windermere. 

Walks

Pack your Kendall Mint Cake and take a walking tour of the locations that star in the new film

Boating on Derwent Water

Make like John, Susan, Titty and Roger and set sail on Derwent Water. Rent rowing boats, dinghies and more at the Marina and head to the islands. 

Camping

Stay in the woods next to Lake Windermere in your very own 'pod', just like camping minus the tent

Borrowdale Gates Hotel

a&u recommended. We loved family-friendly Borrowdale Gates Hotel close to Derwent Water and Scarfed Pike

Ruskin Museum

Discover the sailing dinghy that inspired 'Amazon' at the Ruskin Museum
