Helmsley Open Air Heated Swimming Pool

We're Open Rain or Shine! ABOUTNEW FOR 2017

An Amazing Experience

 

Yorkshire’s only 25m heated open air pool. We are a charity providing affordable outdoor swimming and a ‘holiday atmosphere’ to our local community and many visitors.

Nestling in the North York Moors National Park, our 25m open air pool is in the heart of the countryside. Enjoy the clear water, fresh air and adjacent lawns, which make us a lido as well as an open air pool. We also offer free parking and there is a children’s playground adjacent.

Our timetable is a little different from what you may be used to so please take a little time to check when our sessions are. We do get very busy on very hot days and for safety reasons the pool capacity per session is limited to 100. We have never reached capacity when it’s raining, which we can’t understand as swimming in the rain is truly wonderful, a delight to the senses; although the pool with be cleared/closed if there is a risk of thunder. Whether it’s a moonlight swim or our popular Aquathlon series, there’s a lot going on for everyone at the pool.

Please take a look at our ‘friends’ page to see if there is anything you can do to help the pool.

Fabulous afternoon at the pool today! The sun was shining, the water was warm and there was a great holiday atmosphere. Hopefully many more fun family afternoons here this summer.
