Great North Swim! Fancy making a splash in England’s largest natural lake and taking part in the UK’s biggest open water swimming event? Then you need to get yourself to Brockhole on Windermere in June. You can swim from 250 metres up to 10K, so there’s a distance to suit all abilities and ages. Go on, grab your cossie and take the plunge.
From the official Olympic open water distance – a challenging 10K, to a family-friendly or beginners 250m, there’s a swim for everyone in the Great North Swim. Whether you’re challenging yourself, raising money for charity, or just swimming for fun, you’ll find yourself taking to the lake with thousands of like-minded water-lovers. And what a setting to do it in.
Beautiful Brockhole on Windermere, with its stunning scenery, Arts & Crafts villa, and gorgeous gardens.
And if you don’t fancy getting your hair wet (maybe next year?), you can still come and soak up the atmosphere and watch all the action on the big screens. With lots of activities going on all weekend and food and drink aplenty, it’s a great day out for the whole family.
Stay close to the action in one of our nearby holiday cottages.
