Lake Windermere Open Water Swimming

Swimmers can now get a fresh perspective of the UK’s newest World Heritage site with an outdoor adventure direct from the shore of Lakeside Hotel.

Open water swimming is a unique way to enjoy the Lakeland landscape, suitable for anyone aged 16 and over.

Lakeside has teamed up with SleekerSwim to run 1-2-1 open water coaching sessions tailored to the needs of individuals.

Fully accredited coaches can focus on stroke techniques or open water skills, ranging from choosing the right wet suit to navigation and breathing techniques.

If your feeling inspired by the recent exploits of double World Champion swimmer Adam Peaty or you simply want to take a leisurely swim from the southern tip of Windermere down the River Leven…come and experience something new while enjoying our epic surroundings.

Lakeside offers you the narrowest part of the Lake – the perfect location to swim across the Lake.
