Swimming Membership


The Lake is open to members and their guests, every day from May to September inclusive. 

We do have a waiting list for membership, if you are on the waiting list you can take up community access which allows access to the Lake on quieter days during the summer season whilst you wait for a membership place.

The waiting list is now closed, please check the website in April / May 2024 for details of if the waiting list is open and how to apply.

Members and community access users are able to apply for winter swimming.

The lake is only suitable for competent swimmers and passing a 50-metre swimming test is an essential requirement for membership.

Senior members (18 and over) can bring a maximum of two guests to the Lake. Junior guests must demonstrate the ability to swim 50 metres by taking a swimming test at the Lake. Please note, for safety reasons we do not allow entry to the Lake by members of the general public unless by special arrangement
