Take the plunge and feel the freedom

NEW! Coming in July 2022

Feel the freedom of open water swimming on your stay at Clawford Lakes. Surrounded as we are by freshwater lakes, it would be a missed opportunity if we didn’t give you space to take a dip. In our beautiful Leisure Lake, you can enjoy the amazing benefits of getting back to nature when you immerse yourself in the open waters.

With lots going on in the Leisure Lake including stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking, we have cleared the schedules from 9-10am and 5-6pm daily for swimmers. A truly liberating experience, open water swimming is for competent swimmers only. If you like your swimming a little less wild, you might prefer the fabulous pool overlooking the lake, where you can watch the open water swimmers from a safe distance!

Guests will be invited to pre-book free of charge sessions via the app in advance of their stay.
