Should you be planning on enjoying a toasty Christmas Day in one of our excellent English country cottages in Dorset, why not break the mould and try something a little different to help you work up an appetite for your Christmas lunch?

The Christmas Day Harbour Swim in Weymouth – which saw over 150 brave swimmers tackle the biting cold waters off Dorset – has become something of a tradition for locals, whilst Weymouth and Portland Lions swimming club are charged with organising the event.

Entry is free, but participants are urged to get sponsorship for your favoured charity, with the event hoping to raise as much money as possible for worthwhile causes across the UK.

An event for the whole family to enjoy, it will make that roast turkey and Brussels sprouts taste a lot nicer later on, whilst the warmth of your new Christmas jumper will never be more welcoming.
