Our Facilities – Indoor Swimming Pool
Covid-19 Update: Current guidance means that strictly no more than 10 people can be in the swimming pool or poolside at any one time. We politely request that all guests adhere to this rule at all times and refrain from using the pool if it means that the limit of 10 people will be surpassed. Additional cleaning is being undertaken during the day and we are doing our best to ensure that guests can swim as much as possible during their stay.
Given that only a maximum of 10 people can swim in the pool at any one time we ask our guests to please be considerate to others with regard to the length of time spent in the pool so that all guests get an opportunity to enjoy the pool. Please remember the pool is still to be shared!
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.
