Piel Island

A wonderful day trip for those looking for some summer holiday inspiration! It was lovely and quiet when we were there and the children once again LOVED the boat trip!!

Piel Island is on the tip of the Furness peninsula and was well worth the drive for us, postcode LA13 0QN. The island is only very small with a castle to explore and a pub for refreshments. You can also camp on the island which we will certainly be doing when the children are older!

Piel Ferry leaves Roa Island daily during the summer season from 11 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. (subject to weather.) There is a small charge for those 4 years and over.

Camping is available for £5 per tent and must be pre booked.

There are so many other things to see, and do, in South Lakes that you could easily link a trip to Piel Island with many other excursions such as South Lakes Safari Zoo or the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway in Ulverston.
