I had the loveliest 3 days at the sea swim retreat, beautiful spot, great swimming and very safe and super friendly, it felt like being in a little new family for a dew days. Fab food and company too. I was very impressed how Rich and Mel helped everyone of all different confidence levels have fun and feel safe and enjoy the experience. I will be back for more soon!!

This was my first cold water swimming adventure and as a novice I am so pleased I picked The Wild Swimming Co. Mel, Rich and Becky were fantastic and really looked after us. I was nervous about my ability and not keeping up with other swimmers but the way the course was structured meant I was able to do everything at my own pace without holding anyone up. Amazing food, fantastic people and a really wonderful thing to have done. I will be back, highly recommend this to anyone.

Amazing trip to Bude. Rich and Mel looked after us so well and struck a brilliant balance between fun and safety. The swims and schedules were planned perfectly to give us a range of experiences. I came back feeling like a kid again and with a renewed sense of adventure! (And I’ve already booked my next trip with Rich and Mel) Thank you.

I had a fantastic time. On a practical level, I really appreciated the option of a solo room, which had a really comfortable bed and good heating with the bonus of an absolutely gorgeous view. But more importantly the experience itself was magical with a variety of unforgettable and genuinely 'wild' swims, expertly led by a lovely team who made me feel safe at all times. This really helped me to build my confidence while not losing any excitement or joy. I also really appreciated the diversity of activities on offer whereby we could also enjoy walks, time in nature and time alone with absolutely no pressure to do everything. The food was consistently delicious and filling (especially the cakes!) and the tea/coffee-making facilities were excellent. I will definitely be coming back on another retreat.

Loved this retreat! It was the perfect way to reset. I'm very new to cold water swimming but it was great way to get into it and swim in some beautiful spots. I really enjoyed getting to know all the other swimmers and Mel, Becky and Rich were amazing; catering for every dietary need (they even made me vegan pancakes!) and generally being warm, friendly and - most importantly - making sure we felt safe at all times. Would definitely love to come back! Thanks again x
