Open Water Swimming

Training for a triathlon?

Whether you are training for a triathlon or prepping to swim the channel, our Open Water Swim sessions are perfect. Bring your brightly coloured swim cap and wetsuit or swim buoy and hit the water.

We set out a circular swim course that is approximately 600m.

A swim is priced at Β£7.50, which gives you a 2-hour window. You can arrive up to 10 minutes before your session ends, at which point you will have missed your chance to swim.

We are constantly reviewing our swim sessions, so please leave feedback with a West Country Water Park team member. We are listening and will make changes to accommodate as many requests as feasible.

Lifeguarded Swims

Free your mind, body and soul.

Our lifeguarded swims are NOT YET AVAILABLE.Β 

You will be able to swim freely in an area overseen by lifeguards and from time to time we will include runways and other fun water toys in these sessions.

Lake Amenities

Here at the West Country Water Park, we have everything you’ll need for a safe and enjoyable swim. You can hire a long wetsuit (simply add to your basket when you book your swim) or bring your own. There are changing rooms for your use at the park, with an outdoor warm shower and toilet facilities.
