Close to the west coast and the most westernly of the lakes in the Lake District, Ennerdale Water is a remote, scenic lake to paddle. The lake itself is so remote, that even in the height of summer, it is peaceful and tranquil and the perfect hideaway escape.
This glacial lake is 2.5 miles long and has a depth of 150 feet. Its width varies from 0.5 of a mile to a mile. It is surrounded by some of the best known fells in Cumbria such as Great Gable and High Crag, making it a visually stunning paddle.
