In 2006 I took a job in Cumbria on a whim. I moved here permanently in 2008 and never looked back. From having never swam outdoors to spending most of my free time in a swimsuit, I absolutely love the diverse opportunities for open water swimming in the Lake District.
As well as being an experienced open water swimmer, I'm a trainee Mountain Leader. All activities are insured and risk assessed. I hold an outdoor first aid certificate, and a RLSS water safety management certificate to level 3.
Back in December 2016 when I set up Suzanna Swims, I had a facebook page with about 50 followers. Things are a bit bigger now but it's still just me running the show, and Rosie of course. Email is usually the best way to get hold of me; mobile signal is not brilliant in the areas I generally work.
I cater for all kinds of swimmer except for fast paced ones who might be looking for a training swim. I specialise in social and leisure swims where stopping to look at the view and a nice cup of tea afterwards are the order of the day.
You can keep up with my day to day swims and other activities on instagram. I post all my group swims, social events and courses on facebook, or you can sign up for my monthly newsletter.
