Coracle Building

A unique way of having fun on the lake. Guaranteed fun, guaranteed to get wet!

Coracle building is our take on the classic 'raft building' session. You will be given the materials to build your own coracle. Pipes, tape and a plastic sheet are all you need to make a coracle which will hold you and your friends weight. Once built you'll float your vessel and complete a short obstacle course.

We can not guarantee you'll stay dry, but we can guarantee you'll have loads of laughs!

Our Coracle building sessions can take place anywhere but mostly they will be on Derwentwater, Keswick or Ullswater.

NOTE: DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS WE WILL BE OPERATING THE BUSINESS IN A REDUCED CAPACITY. SADLY, WE WILL NOT BE PROVIDING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES FOR THE SUMMER OF 2020.

Who is Coracle Building for?

A perfect family or group activity. Everyone takes part and will be invovled in building the vessel, everyone can have a go in trying to stay dry whilst it's afloat. Challenges and races can be set up to make the activity a bit more of a competition.
