If you have been on one of our trips and want to send us photos, videos, or written feedback - please do not hesitate to contact us. We love to hear from you.
We love North Wales, so we are biased with the opinions we have. We also work really hard on our trips, and think they're really good... and you've heard more than enough of us blowing our own trumpets. See what our guests have to say about our holidays:
LC - Wet Weekend in South Snowdonia
Just wanted to say how impressed I was with your set up at Gone Swimming. The food, professionalism, flexibility, friendliness.
HC - Wet Weekend in South Snowdonia
THANK YOU SO MUCH! for a really amazing time. I have actually liked my job for two whole days, because it put me in such a good mood. Thanks for looking after us all so kindly but also letting us have fantastic unforgettable adventures. I am still eating ridiculous amounts of cake and wearing a hat inside and even the slightly scummy bristolian river looks appetising (I have actually resisted so far).
RC - Wet Weekend in South Snowdonia
A quick line to say many thanks for a great weekend. I really enjoyed it all, even though it was so cold. I think my favourite was the swim in the Blue Lagoon, but I enjoyed it all. I really wasn't sure I would manage any swims when I set off on Friday so I am very proud of myself. I think my biggest challenge was the swim on Monday in the river - I know I didn't last long in the water but I think I did well considering the cold and the wind!
Everyone has said how good the food was and I can only agree - it makes a real difference to be so well looked after by both of you.
You both manage to make us all feel so welcome, well looked after and supported to push ourselves knowing that you know exactly what you are doing
Thank you again - hope to see you again, but probably when it is warmer!
MB - Wet Weekend in South Snowdonia
I really enjoyed the weekend and I am looking forward to the next one now and that ace jumping spot ;) You guys are running a fantastic operation there and I shall be singing your praises to all who will listen to me!
JC - Wet Weekend in Anglesey

JN - Wet Weekend in Snowdonia
...just to say many thanks for the wet weekend experience, I had a great time with some fab swims that I won't forget. The food was gorgeous and company was great too along with the others who came that weekend. I may see you for another weekend in the future!
SJ - Wet Weekend in Anglesey
Just a quick update for you - following the short coaching session I had with Dan during my wet weekend my crawl has improved vastly! Previously I was struggling to do one length without feeling exhausted - now I can do four lengths in a row, and last night by alternating 4 lengths crawl with 2 lengths breaststroke to recover I managed 56/80 lengths in crawl. The really amazing thing is that it hasn't made too much of a difference to my time, I'm about 5 minutes slower over 2km than if I only swim breaststroke but that's negligible (at least it is to me!). So a MASSIVE THANKS to Dan and Gabrielle and Gone Swimming! :o)
MGJ & CGJ - Wet Weekend in Snowdonia
Many thanks for the lovely weekend in North Wales.
Whilst the weather wasn't good everything else was great- your knowledge of swim locations, the lovely food and the relaxed and flexible approach. You looked after us very well and we felt safe.
We both really enjoyed it and would certainly like to repeat. Keen to hear more about the pleasure of adventure swims once you've firmed up and may get back to you with a hybrid swimming+cycling weekend proposal for next year.
PB - Wet Weekend in Snowdonia
Just wanted to drop you a line and say how much I enjoyed this weekend, I had a great time and enjoyed meeting Mike and Chrissie and of course yourself and Gabby. Thanks so much for all the effort that you both put into everything, it felt like going on holiday with friends that you'd never met before (if that makes any sense!) - I particularly enjoyed the two sea swims and the reservoir, and the picnic yesterday too, and the food was outstanding. By the end I felt thoroughly spoilt.
I've been wondering what I could suggest to improve the weekend but it's difficult to think of anything. The robies are a really great idea that you might mention in the kit list as something you provide? And I think maybe the food is undersold on the website? But really for me I'd just say keep doing what you're doing!
Hope all goes well with the Olympic volunteering and your other plans, including Gone Swimming of course! I'll be checking out the website and hope to see you again sometime on a future trip.
LG - Wet Weekend in Anglesey
Just to say Thank you for leaving the shoes for me & the lemon drizzle cake & bananas came in handy as I feasted all day Monday until found myself on board the train and food was available again.
I had a very nice dinner at the Seacroft gastro pubin Trearddur Bay, thanks for suggesting it.
And lastly for that magic experience of descending into the beautiful sea and providing me with a harmonious condition where some unsettling feelings could flow from within and be observed until they naturally subsided, and your respectful guidance, thank you again.
For the first time, I have really felt "at one" with the water. When can I come again?
SJ - Wet Weekend in Anglesey
I have just had *The Best Weekend* with Gone Swimming! Lovely people, great food (and plenty of it), glorious sunshine and fantastic swimming on the beautiful island of Anglesey. The technique coaching has given me plenty to think about and I'm looking forward to trying out your suggestions and seeing my crawl improve even more. Many thanks Gabs and Dan, I can't wait to swim with you guys again!
