What you'll do
I live in the South Lakes, closest to some of Britain's best wild swimming spots, where we'll meet on the day for a trip into the Lakes for a wild swimming adventure! We'll discuss your preferences beforehand. Would you prefer swimming in larger lakes that are easier to get to, or exploring remote tarns that require some hiking to get to beforehand? On meeting we'll drive, no more than 30 mins, to our spot. Some swimming venues may require some hiking, we'll discuss this beforehand. We'll then enjoy some walking and wild swimming in the fantastic Lake District.
Warm up refreshments after the swim: Feel free to send your preferences and I'll do my best to accommodate!
Swimming gear: Swimming bag and head cap to ensure you're safe whilst swimming!
I'm a passionate wild swimmer who's keen to share my interest in swimming in the Lakes. Over the last few years I've swam all the large bodies of water in the Lake District and 200 of the smaller tarns. I've spent time exploring the clearest, warmest and nicest swimming spots in the Lakes, all with stunning mountainous scenery.

I also love High Dam on a summers evening and not forgetting the great Coniston, Wasdale & Windermere! The time is yours and dependent on how far you'd like to swim and how much you're prepared to hike!
