We indulge in our obsession with swimming around islands on the Derwentwater Island Hop, and there is no better place in the Lake District to do it. We enjoy our training swims here so much that we felt that we had to share it with our swimming guests. The views from bay are some of the best in the North Lakes whatever the weather and the islands we swim to are just the right distance apart for a challenging but very manageable wild swim. They just cry out to be swam to… you know the feeling? On the return swim you can look forward to the best brew in the Lake District and the essential slice of cake:)
