Open Water Swimming

Dear All, it is with regret that we have to advise that the Outdoor Swim Centre at Fritton Lake has closed for good from Saturday 30th March . Despite 3 months of negotiation and being led to believe that we would be able to continue with swimming and events this year, the management at Fritton Lake told us Thursday, that no new license will be issued. 

This also means that our SwimRun events and swimming events are cancelled and we will of course refund all entries from these. However the Triathlon weekend in June will still go ahead this year as planned. Those of you with pre-paid swim cards please get in touch for us to refund for any outstanding swims.

We introduced open water swimming at Fritton Lake in 2008 and opened our dedicated lake side swim centre in April 2010. Over the years we have made many friends and it’s been a delight to welcome everyone at Fritton. This is not what we wanted and is outside of our control but I guess all good things must come to an end.

For further information about developments at Fritton Lake including booking activities please call 01493 484008.

Full announcement from Somerleyton Estate

As a result of the current development work at Fritton Lake Resort we have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily suspend some of the activities at Fritton including the Park Run and Open Water swim centre.
Other activities including archery, tree climbing and SUP and kayaking lessons will continue to be available to book for those staying onsite by calling 01493 484008.
Over the coming months we will be adding additional facilities for our retreat owners and guests including a new swimming pool, tennis courts and children’s activity play.
We appreciate your patience as we continue the development works to improve the resort.
