I'm in Bowness Thursday overnight and need to get a swim session in. Does anybody know of a public pool or decent sized hotel pool near to Bowness ?

Cheers

In reply to The Hat: there's a pool at the Lakes School, sometimes open to the public, otherwise it's Kendal Leisure Centre or Ulverston.

Kendal Leisure Centre is your best option, unless you're happy in open water in which case you're well placed!

The pool at Troutbeck Bridge had been closed for quite a while now.

There is - but about 10m long. Not ideal for the OP's swim session, which is why I didn't mention hotel pools as they're generally a bit tiddly.

Because there's no such body of water? Only one Lake in the Lakes...

In reply to andy:

Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. (From wikipeadophile)

Its a Lake, It called Windermere, therefore refering to is as Lake Windermere is a common term of reference.

If there is only 1 lake in the "Lakes" why are you refering to the area as the "Lakes" then.

Pedantic parry to your pedantic thrust!!

In reply to The Hat: kendal pool probably bet option - but check opening times iratic and weird and frustrating

In reply to mgco3: I'm referring to the Lake District, commonly known as the Lakes (as in the national park) and what bodies of water are called on the OS map. There's only one that's a Lake (lots of them are lakes, obviously). And Windermere ain't it.
