There are two great lakes available for open water
swimming within 10km of us. Both lakes have easy access from either grassy banks, pontoon or a small beach. Each lake has an island that can used for sighting practice or to swim around.
The larger lake has a number of facilities including: cafe serving drinks and lunches, shaded picnic area, pedalo hire, childrens play area and animal park, Around the perimeter of the lake are well maintained trails, ideal for running before or after your swim.
Wetsuits are not needed during the summer
months. During good weather, some guests take googles and shorts in their jersey pockets to finish the days ride with a short swim before reaching home.
There is one 50m and several 25m open air swimming pools in the area - open
summer only - or an indoor pool, slightly further away where the
local triathlon club meet.
