Lake District Businesses

Ullswater, Lake District, Eden Valley

& the local area

Active Aid

Whether you are on a hill, in a forest, in an office or elsewhere. First Aid training is worth having.

With the emphasis on practical based training, Ross and the team at this business are superb at passing on what to do in various situations.

Ullswater Catchment Management CIC

Conservation, Flood Management, Wetland Habitat Creation, Tree Planting and more.

If you’d like to know more or have a similar scheme in mind, Danny is a very approachable and knowledgeable guy to chat with.

Swifts in the community

One of the best aspects of the Lake District and the surrounding area is the wealth of knowledgeable people that live around the place.

Was it a Swift, a Swallow or a Martin that you saw on your paddle or walk ?

We very often also see Oystercatchers, Buzzards, Dippers, Cormorants, Wagtails, a Heron and a Kingfisher. The Scottish Eagles have had a look around but they’re still a rare sighting at the moment. One of my favourites, Swans, are always a pleasure to watch.

Swim the Lakes

Whether you know it as wild swimming. open water swimming or simply swimming, Ullswater & some other lakes are ideal for the activity.

Like to know where to go, when to go, what to wear etc ?

This business has been operating in the area for almost 20 years. They’re always happy to chat.
