Wild Swimming

You can’t beat that afterglow after a spot of wild or open water swimming and Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) is just down the road from Tyn Cornel Camping.

Four miles long, one mile wide and surrounded by gorgeous scenery, it is surely one of nature’s best swimming pools, if a little bracing at times (but that’s all part of the fun). Triathlons are hosted here regularly.

The gorge at Fairy Glen and plunge pool at Rhaeadr Mawddach are also not far away, as well as countless crystal clear lakes nestled amongst the Snowdonia mountains – we’ll be happy to give you directions to some of our favourite wild swimming venues.
