The Lake Rampsbeck Grange Watermillock , Penrith , Cumbria, CA11 0LP, North West
Swim in the lake at night under The Milky Way, the glow of your light-up tow float keeping you company under the stars. Open water swimming specialist, Colin Hill, will be your guide in the water with you. You will experience 20 – 40 mins in the water. The session will take place in the bay in front of the hotel and will include all equipment, safety briefing and guide.
We go out in most weather conditions, if it’s cloudy, we enjoy the inky blackness on the water – it’s a wonderful experience floating in Ullswater at night.
This event occurs as part of the Cumbria Dark Skies Festival 2023.
