Winter Swim Club
Back in October 2024

Cold Water Swimming

Our 3-day swim retreats go into hibernation during Winter and it seems such a shame to close access to our beautiful swimming pond. Cold water swimming is growing in popularity and has brought so many benefits for swimmers. So due to popular demand we keep our swimming pond open during the winter months for those who love cold water and to offer a safe space for those who want to start. 

Our Winter Swim Club runs from 1 November to 31 March each year.


NOWCA Membership

We use the NOWCA system to ensure the safety of all swimmers, so you must be a NOWCA member to swim at our pond. NOWCA membership costs £15 for 12 months and comes with many benefits including access to over 40 safe open water venues nationwide, insurance cover for personal accident & injury, big discounts from top brands, tracking of your swim stats, and Premium features on the NOWCA Wild app!


We are also part of NOWCA's Sub10 Club so any swims with us that are below 10°C will go toward your tally for your Sub10 swim badge.

Safety cover at all swim sessions.


Swimmers will have access to our natural swimming pond as well as free use of the jacuzzi. 


There is a small levy to access the wood-fired sauna - £20 per person for the entire season. You can pay cash on arrival and we will add you on the sauna guest list.

Our sessions are not time limited, which means you can enjoy the pond and facilities until 5 minutes before the session closing time.


There are toilets, an indoor changing area, and free onsite parking available.

  • Monday: 9-11am
