Step outside for an adventure in nature

Fritton Lake is a family run private country estate with free roaming deer, cattle, sheep, ponies and rich birdlife. Members, guests and owners can sign up for our exclusive experiences including nature safaris, foraging, wine tasting, cocktail classes, yoga and triathlon training.  Enjoy wild swimming, trail running, cycling, paddle boarding, sailing and adventure play, or join our rewilding team to learn from and improve our natural ecosystem. 

Invite friends and family to play tennis on grass and clay courts, volleyball, croquet or pétanque, relax by our 22 metre outdoor heated pool or practice yoga in our lakeside garden.

Relax and unwind...

The Fritton Arms serves critically-acclaimed good food made from locally sourced ingredients and is at the heart of Fritton Lake. Reward yourself by sinking into a deep sofa with a tempting cocktail at the end of the day.

Family activites

Adventure play

As well as exploring the lake with their grown-ups, and running wild in our ancient woodland, children will love our adventure play areas. Older kids can whizz through the trees on our zip wire or down our giant slide. There is also a younger children’s play area with a smaller pool, bouncy pillow and play equipment for younger children to conquer. Children must be supervised at all times.

Improve your game

Clay & grass court tennis

The club has four tennis courts, a pair of lawn tennis courts, and two clay, one of which is a new ‘all-weather clay’ allowing for year-round play. Tennis coaching is available for all abilities to enhance any aspect of a player’s game.
