With 18 acres of National Park to roam, Ullswater on your doorstep, a library, treatment rooms and a warm pool, The Lake has inspiration for everyone. All the family, from parents and teens, toddlers, babies and their grandparents can have a holiday here they’ll love. We know that for many of you that means spending a lot of time together and a little time apart. And that while for some of you ‘holiday’ means having a massage in Swim Club, for others it means hanging out in trees and making new friends.

Children’s spaces

For children aged 3-12, our dedicated, activity-led, Kids’ Zone are secure buildings within the grounds, including separate spaces for different age groups. These areas are suited to a variety of activities including games, arts and crafts, puppet shows and storytelling.

There is also an outdoor play area where children can start honing their forest and bush craft skills. The lake is not accessible to unaccompanied children.

Ofsted-registered, the Kids’ Zone is run by experienced, qualified staff. All staff have valid DBS checks in place. Supervised sessions run daily.

Supervised sessions

Give the children the chance to be independent while you take some time for yourself. Our teams create activities for the children in a safe environment. Evening supervision gives you the chance to get to Swim Club or dine together after the children’s Early Supper. Activities include bush craft, cookery workshops and role play.

Children’s food

There’s a range of different food options for children. We have a children’s menu in The Living Space, and in Rampsbeck Restaurant most of our dishes can be made child-friendly on request. All are fresh and home cooked and both restaurants have high chairs.

Early supper is in Rampsbeck Restaurant each evening between 5pm-6pm. The dishes are served buffet style and created for children up to 12 years old, including children’s favourites and healthier options. There is no extra charge for those staying on a dinner inclusive basis.

There are also pantries in the hotel with a microwave, washing up facilities and fridge.

Baby monitoring

Our tablet baby monitoring service can be used in Rampsbeck Restaurant, the Living Space and the library. However, if using the service, you have to stay in the hotel grounds.


We can provide a babysitter between 6pm and 2am, allowing you to have an evening out. All our babysitters are Kids’ Zone staff with up-to-date DBS checks and Paediatric First Aid.

Babysitting is available on request – £12/hr, minimum three hours.

Sports for children on Ullswater

We work with a range of different partners to offer water sports at The Lake. Kayaking, canoeing, wild swimming, sailing and stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) lessons start from our jetty and are suitable for children from five years old. All children under 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Sailing lessons with Ullswater Yacht Club include taster days as well a RYA Level 1 and 2 courses.

The Sheep Shed has all  you need to have fun paddling and swimming in the lake, including wetsuits and boots for all ages.

If you want to take the day at your own pace, we can provide you with a map and point you in the direction of the Ullswater Way walking route, cycling and running trails, or the Ullswater Steamers.
