From sunset swims in Buttermere to an icy dip in a waterfall pool, swimming in the lakes, rivers and tarns is an amazing way of appreciating the beauty of the Lake District.
Caroline can let you know where is good to swim, or you could see if any BassenthwaiteSwimBabes on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1611660582454545/) are doing a swim you can join. Or for a swim guide contact SuzannaSwims for private and group swims (https://www.suzannaswims.co.uk/).
Take care though: it is an extreme sport – never swim alone, make sure someone is ready to pass your shoes, towel and hot tea, and be extra careful in the colder months! But it is so exhilarating – you will feel amazing afterwards, and you may be hooked for life! We are!
