National Trust, Windermere, re-opening, gradually and safely (for SUP).

We’re pleased to see the National Trust’s locations are going to be opening again very soon – albeit gradually and safely. Already the NT have opened over 100 gardens and parks in England and Northern Ireland via advanced bookings. From Monday July 6 parks and gardens will also start to open in Wales.

This is good news for paddling on Lake Windermere as you’ll soon be able to do so once again. If you’re not aware the Lake District offers a stunning place to SUP with incredible vistas of fell mountains, rolling hills and (at certain times) snow-capped peaks. Its plethora of glacial ribbon lakes are worth a visit regardless of whether you intend getting afloat. And for those who fancy combining paddling with walking/scrambling/climbing then it goes without saying the Lake District should be on your bucket list.

For opening info regarding all aspects of the National Trust it’s best to check the NT website before your visit. You can do so here. Suffice to say it’s great news to see the Lakes on the cards for travel again. And if you hadn’t already spotted McConks works closely with the National Trust so we’re keen to support them as they do us.
