Boating on the lake

See Berrington's landscape from a new perspective from our glorious lake.

  • Booking advisable
  • Admission applies

The best way to see the 14 acre lake is by boat. Hire a boat for a trip around parts of the lake and see some of the hidden spaces in the 'Capability' Brown designed water habitat.

Boat hire is for half an hour hire. See below for booking details. Normal admission fees apply. Please note last boat hire is at 3:30pm to allow for a full half hour hire.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
