for-saleFancy owning your own Lake to indulge your passion for open water swimming?

Here’s your chance, if you have around £300,000. Esthwaite Water in the Lake District is up for sale.

Esthwaite Water is a privately owned lake which has been run as a fishery for many years and swimming is not currently allowed.

The Lake does have other attractions such as the nature trail and fishing boat safaris, perhaps its biggest attraction for fishermen, not swimmers, is it's claim to fame for England’s largest pike catch at 46.5lLbs. (Gulp!)

Whats in it for the open water swimmer?
