Boat Hire

A memorable momenton the water

Head down to the jetty on a summer’s day and discover Holkham Lake by rowing boat.

You don’t need an Olympic medal to dip your oars in here! Just pop on your life jacket and take to the water with your family and friends (your furry friend is welcome on board too).


Fancy a splash?

What better way to while away a summer’s afternoon than in a rowing boat on Holkham’s mile-long lake? This stretch of water is a haven for wildlife and a great way to see the Hall and park from a new, rather relaxing, perspective.

Take a book and unwind as you gently bob along, or grab your camera or even your binoculars and see what you can spot.

As you take to the water, you’ll discover the lake has a couple of islands to navigate, too – hold onto your oars!
