Action Watersports’ lake proves to be a fantastic open water swimming venue.

The lake is approx. 650m long with marker posts for distance reference, has an easy-to-follow course with user-friendly entry & exit points and warms up very quickly in the summer making it the ideal place to train. The 500m sheltered, straight course offers you the best wild swimming experience. You can go as far as you like, no need to go to the 500m sign!

Tow buoys are compulsory. 

We stock Swim Secure Tow Buoys at very competitive prices. Hire also available – just £2. Wetsuits also available to hire – just £5.00
