Considered by many to be the loveliest lake in England, Ullswater offers excellent sailing, quiet anchorages, and fell & low-level walks amongst spectacular scenery. Good hotels restaurants and pubs are all available nearby. Ullswater Yacht Club offers a warm welcome and excellent facilities, including launching.

  • Sharrow Bay – £650.00 plus 20% VAT = £780.00

We offer a 15% discount for all mooring licence applications received by 15th March. You can also spread the cost of your licence fee and we offer different ways to pay. Please refer to the Payment Options form, available to download HERE, which gives details of all fees and ways to pay. All you have to do is complete and sign the form and return it to us together with your cheques if applicable and your application form (available to download HERE) and a copy of your Third Party Insurance Certificate should you wish to proceed with an application.

The mooring tackle (the weights, chains and buoys) is the sole property and responsibility of the mooring licensees. It may be possible by private negotiation to purchase any existing tackle from the outgoing licensee. Existing tackle can be lifted and surveyed, and serviced by Mr J. Smith, an independent contractor who also lays new mooring tackle when required. The positions and numbering of the moorings are monitored by the National Park Authority. Please see Terms & Conditions for further information.
