South Lakes Wild Swims – The Elterwater Trilogy

By |2017-10-26T14:39:31+00:00February 5th, 2016|Ambleside, Articles, Great Days Out, Lake District Days Out, Wild Swimming|

My top tip for this week is a lovely area of the South Lakes to swim as it has multiple swimming options, and a good café and pubs nearby too if the weather gets really miserable and you need to put your escape route option into play. I have also seen the otters and the lovely goldeneye ducks fishing and playing around here over the past two weeks which is always a lovely sight.
