Service Description

I really think you’re going to love this adventure and I am buzzing to share the swim with you. So, the cold water swim adventure day takes you to idyllic location of the Castle Ashby Estate in Northamptonshire. You definitely won’t be disappointed with the stately grandeur of the Castle Ashby House acting as the backdrop to the lake. Driving to the lake on quiet lanes surrounded by manicured paddocks and fields filled with sheep grazing, will get you excited. The Castle Ashby village has a newly renovated hotel which used to be a coaching inn – The Falcon. If you wanted to make your stay longer you can book a wonderful room in the Falcon Hotel. The swim circuit is 400m, but you may battle to put your face in the water because you want to soak up the energy and beauty of your surroundings. The swim is open to breaststroke or front crawl swimmers, fast swimmers or slow swimmers and wetsuit or skins swimmers. EVERYONE! The lake, which is only one hour from Harpenden, allows you to explore and experience a location that has stopped in time and experiencing a different open water swim location. No swim is complete without some wholesome food to warm us up and celebrate our swim success. Meals excluded in the cost. Cafe directions will be given on booking. I will guide you on your cold water swim journey, making sure you feel safe and have a wonderful cold water experience. This is a great opportunity to ditch the wetsuit and embrace the cold water under guidance.
