Some of the best swims in Britain feature in our Windermere Wild Swimming Adventure holiday. We stay in a Georgian mansion, with some of the best swimming in the country accessible from the lawn… this is our idea of heaven!
Join us as we swim the iconic north basin of Windermere, the River Rothay and the beautiful tarns and Lakes that have inspired famous poets and artists. With our exclusive access to the Brathay Hall shoreline, we invite you to swim as much or as little as you like, making the most of a great choice of accommodation, surrounded by stunning Lakeland views.
If you feel like kicking back and taking a break from the swimming, there are hot drinks on tap at Brathay Hall, along with comfy sofas and stunning views. Nearby are the villages of Ambleside, Hawkshead & Grasmere.

This was without doubt the best swim I’ve done this year! Thank you Andrea and Pete for an amazing adventure. Jane.
An excellent weekend with a really well though out sequence of swims, and such encouraging support. The accommodation was lovely and (very important) the company was fabulous. Thanks everyone! Linda & Justin x
