Lake Swimming

The health benefits of cold water swimming are very well known. With our lake frontage you can step into the lake from your front door. We recommend lowering yourself in the lake slowly from our jetty to let your body acclimatise first. Extra towels are available in our reception and can be delivered to your room.
