This is one of our favourite regular swims, a sociable meander around several charming islands against (usually) a stunning sunset, followed by a fantastic fish supper – with, of course, veggie options!
It’s a great way to unwind and cool off on the hot summer days - and Derwentwater is a lake of many islands, and this swim takes in a variety of them. We meet on the shores of Derwentwater and head out to discover the charms of the wonderfully named islands – St Herbert's, Rampsholme, Lord's to name just a few.
On our return we head into nearby Keswick for a well-earned fish supper, or alternative.
There are only 10 places on each of these swims, so get in touch soon to avoid disappointment.
