Our Facilities – Indoor Swimming Pool
Our indoor pool has proven to be a real hit with our guests and keeps bringing us return visitors every year! It is kept warm enough for a relaxing spot of bathing after a long day and is large enough for some light exercise and fun with family and friends. We’re proud to say that our pool is rainwater-harvested and heated with burning wood-pellets from our biomass boiler.
It is located within the cottages area, next to the games room. The pool is 12x5m in size and the temperature averages 32 degrees centigrade. It is shallow all the way through – 1m at the shallow end and 1.2m at the other end, so ideal for families. Please read our pool rules when visiting.
During the week and in school term time our pool is used for Parent/Baby classes, which means that the pool is out of use to guests for a few hours each day (please see the times). To allow guests to use the pool we open the pool earlier in the mornings and close it later, so that there is a chance for everyone to have a swim
Guests can swim at the following times:
Monday: 8 am – 9.30 am and 2 pm – 9 pm
Tuesday: 8 am – 9.30 am and 2 pm – 9 pm
Wednesday: 8 am – 9.30 am and 2.30 pm – 9 pm
Thursday: 8 am – 9.30 am and 2 pm – 9 pm
Friday: 8 am – 9.30 am and 2 pm – 9 pm
Saturday: 8 am – 9 pm
Sunday: 8 am – 9 pm
