If you could bottle how you feel after a swim in Crystal Lake it would be the most priceless, healing bottle of Wellness. I've just been to the Open Water Taster Afternoon. From first enquiry, to online booking and your clear, explanatory email for the session was so easy. I'd done my research and the whole ethos and dream of Adam and Gemma off their website, comes true and you walk onto their Academy. You are made to feel so welcome. Jim was so friendly, smiley and just put you to ease instantly. Adam and Jim's induction in the Barn was professional and very informative. Your safety is paramount to them. Then Crystal Lake...its beautiful, tranquil and just envelopes you with its healing powers. I love waterfall bathing, and wanted to do open water swimming for my wellness. I've had bereavement and trauma over the last 7 months. Today was a huge achievement for me. Attending a group activity with strangers, lack of body confidence. But I did it and this was down to my courage, Adam and Jim making us all feel so welcome and comfortable and the beautiful lake. its quite a drive for me, but I've already booked some weekly session. The drive is worth it for the Wellnesses you feel in the Lake. If your reading this review thinking...shall I shan't I? I would say Do it. Don't hesitate. Book yourself onto the taster session, you'll never look back. Plus you can have delicious homemade cake and hot drink from Gemma and her mum, whilst you soak in the peacefullness before your drive home. Thank you Adam and Gemma for sharing your beautiful home and Lake. Jim for being so welcoming, funny, smiley and your dancing!
