Are you looking for that special venue for your wedding reception, party or conference? 

We have a function room with spectacular views of Lake Windermere and can comfortably seat 70 people. Slightly more for buffets.  The adjoining patio area is covered and sheltered.

In addition, our well-equipped kitchen is perfect for bringing your own catering team to keep food costs under control. Alternatively we can supply contact details for local caterers.  A large BBQ is also available.

The Boat Club has a fully stocked bar and we throw in the spectacular views for free!  Our in-house music system means that you can bring your own playlist on a smartphone, tablet or laptop in MP3 format and enjoy the music that you prefer at no extra cost.

A public car park is available opposite the clubhouse. 


The club is available to hire between April and October for daytime and evening events.  (Please note that there are only very limited Saturday Evenings available in the summer season).

Over the last year we have hosted meetings, weddings, company events, wakes and birthday parties for a wide range of satisfied customers.

The current basic fee for a wedding reception is £600 which includes for access to the premises on the day before the wedding and the day after for setting out and clearing up.

The day fee for parties and other similar events is negotiable between £300 and £600 dependant upon the times and facilities required.
