Our official partners for the Windermere One Way Swim are The National Trust and Brathay Hall both of whom are key to the success of this event without their support and involvement events such as this would not be possible.
The Brathay Hall estate is the venue for the finish line of the swim and a meal will be provided for the swimmers at the end of the event.
Brathay Hall is the Ambleside base of Brathay Trust. The charity’s mission is to improve the life chances of children, young people and families by inspiring them to engage positively in their communities. When the site is not in full use for their programmes, the venue offers B&B and self-catering accommodation. Profits from this go towards their continuing work with children and young people.
B&B Bookings can be made by calling Brathay reception on 015394 3304. Quote WOW and you will receive 15% discount on accommodation.
