Film Work


We are happy to talk to film companies wishing to film scenes on the lake.

We have a range of boats we can use to offer safety cover for your activities, uses as camera boats or just transport you and your equipment to more isolated areas on the lake.

We have floating pontoons that can be positioned for easy access to a range of sites on the lake or provide a stable working platform for instance to film from or launch camera drones.

With our in depth knowledge of the lake, its surrounding and expertise in all the activities we offer, we can give you location and technical advice. We can offer activity training to the cast and crew to give them the necessary skills to get the most out of your filming.

Throughout our prep and filming John & Sarah guided us across Derwentwater, for which I cannot thank them enough. Their knowledge of the water, invention of faux seaplane rigs, patience and good humour have helped bring a new chapter of Ransome’s story to the screen and we could not have done it without them.
