Lakes hatches plans for adventure by Windermere
Bookmark and Share
The Lake District National Park Authority has revealed it is planning to create new adventure activity facilities at its Brockhole visitor centre on the shore of Windermere.

It is seeking ideas from suppliers of such activities for the new attraction, with a tender to be issued to the best bid.

This could include watersports, rope slides and an aerial walkway, which Brockhole's development manager Gill Curry said were things visitors to the centre have been saying they would like to see.

"Designed to bring a taste of adventure, we think these activities will encourage people - particularly our young visitors - to explore the national park’s amazing landscape, especially the mountains and lakes," she added.

The provision of more family-friendly activities could encourage more people to go caravanning in the Lake District.

Caravan sites near Windermere include White-Cross-Bay and the Skelwith Fold Caravan Park near Ambleside, which is also usefully located for exploring the Langdales.
