Skinny Dipping in Blackmoss Pot

The Lonely Planet web site has named Blackmoss Pot, approximately two miles from Stonethwaite, as one of their top 10 places to go skinny dipping. You can find Blackmoss Pot in the Langstrath valley at OSGB NY267113.

It has a waterfall at the upper end and is surrounded by steep rocks, which conceal swimmers from prying eyes on the nearby bridleway, making it ideal for a nude swim allegedly.

There is room just in front of the telephone box in the tiny village of Stonethwaite in Borrowdale for half-a-dozen or so cars. Otherwise you need to park sensibly on the verge before the village.
