Not only is open water swimming a unique way to enjoy the Lakeland landscape, it can also help your team focus, re-energise and grow stronger as a team.

At Lakeside Hotel & Spa, we have teamed up with SleekerSwim to offer fully accredited coaching targeted to the needs and ability of your group.

Our unique location on the southern shore of Windermere offers open water swimmers direct access to England’s largest natural lake. This accessible, low impact activity is ideal for companies wanting to push the boundaries and give their teams an exciting new challenge.

With sessions tailored to individual needs, group sessions can include a guided lake swim starting from the shores of the hotel or an open water skills session around a safe buoyed mark course. Expert coaches can also focus on stroke techniques and specialist skills, ranging from choosing the right wetsuit to navigation and breathing techniques.

We can provide open water team activities for groups of 5 to 30 people, with prices starting from £30 per person (and an additional £5 for wetsuit hire if needed). SleekerSwim’s friendly, approachable instructors will keep everyone motivated and all participants will also receive a copy of the Swim Safe Code, alongside handy tips for swimming in Windermere.
