Fritton Lake Country Park is operated by the Somerleyton Hall Estate. This is open to the general public from March to October from 10am to 6pm and operates independently from Fritton Lake Outdoor Centre. There is a car park fee of £10 to access the country park giving you access to 35 acres of maintained park and woodland, including the adventure playground featuring one of few jumping pillows and a massive fort with slides. For more information on this then please contact the Fritton Arms on 01493 484008

We are one of the lead providers of open water swimming in the region. Our regular weekly sessions have been running since 2009 and attract swimmers of all types from leisure swimmers looking to unwind and enjoy a unique perspective of our lake, too athletes swim training for competition or for more extreme challenges such as channel swimming.

Open water swimming is a fast growing activity and our regular swimmers create a great community. Whoever you speak to, they'll tell you it's addictive, and that includes the winter swimmers who's plunge into the water at temperatures below 5 degrees C
