Description

Enjoy unspoilt woodland and lush meadows surround a sparkling lake, and wonderfully dark and starry nights.


Expect a slow paced and relaxing weekend. It will include some lake swims, optional yoga sessions and as much or as little else as you wish. There is a lot of space to walk or run or just sit and contemplate the beautiful scenery, chat with like minded guests or take some time alone in between activities. This trip really is suitable for all abilities. The food is also delicious.

Join Nicola and the SwimQuest team for relaxing swims in the lake, swim technique sessions in the heated pool and optional gentle yoga classes on this friendly and luxurious short break. 

This trip is suitable for all ability levels (both yoga and swimming) and is designed to leave you feeling relaxed and restored. 

The focus for our pool sessions will be helping you to feel comfortable in the water, moving towards an efficient and balanced stroke (whether that be front crawl or breaststroke). The sessions in the lake will be an opportunity to stretch out and enjoy being immersed in nature. 

The focus for the yoga practice will be on breath awareness, pranayama and gathering energy inwards. We will work with postures that open and close the body, open the chest and side body to increase space for deep, long breaths – all skills which should enhance and support your experience in the water. Strengthening work for the core, feet and legs will help us with both physical and emotional stability both on the land and in the water. These sessions will help us to make the most of the weekend, to find space to let go and release. 

If you have any questions or if you would like to chat to a member of SwimQuest staff about this short break, please contact the office.
