There's never a bad time to enjoy a cream tea but there's rarely a better time than when you're sailing across Coniston Water with a beautiful view of the fells behind you. What a treat!

A truly decadent afternoon out (available by ordering online only) on our 2:30pm sailing Monday - Friday or 11am sailing Saturday - Sunday.

The basket includes:

  • homemade scones with butter
  • strawberry jam and clotted cream
  • fresh strawberries
  • pot of tea

(Basket, napkins and crockery to be returned)


Cost for two people: £62, or £82 for the champagne option (includes half bottle of Canard Duchene Brut).
