This year, spending time in the great outdoors has never been more precious. Many of us have learned just how valuable a good walk, run or cycle through the trees or by water can be. It can provide an important boost to our mental health, whilst also benefitting our physical health through exercise. 

This Christmas, treat the people in your life to a Friendship with South West Lakes. Maybe it's a loved one who could benefit from spending more time outdoors, or maybe you have an avid runner or seasoned walked in mind! The Friendship provides access to all of our lakes across the south west for a year with a free parking pass, but it also crucially supports our important conservation and education work, which maintains the upkeep of the lakes for wildlife and visitors. 

This includes nearly 90 miles of footpaths, children's play areas and well appointed benches overlooking beautiful views. Here, there are plenty of opportunities to create special memories in the great outdoors. 


The Christmas Gift Friendship includes:

  • A 2021 calendar featuring gorgeous images of the lakes 
  • An annual parking permit (2 for joint or family Friends)
  • Invitations to events 
  • Regular updates on our work
  • Unique gift linked to their chosen campaign: Love Your Lakes, Take the Lead or Play and Explore. Find out more about these campaigns here.

When you take out a Friendship as a Christmas Gift, we will send you a voucher which can then be exchanged by the recipient for their Friend pack. Please make sure that you insert your details into the form, not your friend or family member. 

Our Christmas Friends offer is only available from 3 November - 18 December 2020 in order to ensure the voucher arrives in time for the big day.
