The Meare is a boating lake like no other. The lake with its islands and surrounds covers some sixty acres and has over forty acres of water. However, nowhere is the lake more than three feet deep and so it provides a very safe boating environment. The islands were named by J.M Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan and each have their own attraction from the Fort to the Dragon’s lair the explore.

A wide range of dinghies, kayaks, large family rowing boats, canoes, punts and sailing boats are all available for hire. Many of these are the original boats from 1913, repaired over the winter and these boats lend the Meare an air of timess enjoyment.
