An Amazing Experience

 

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 currently limited to 60. 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 Aquarobics 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.

First time here tonight! Warm, friendly welcome. Really lovely pool, so clean and a joy to watch the sky as you swim. And a great cup of tea afterwards. Really enjoyed ourselves, can’t wait to come back!
Had an absolutely brilliant night at the apogee moon swim. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and the pool is lovely. Well worth a little drive out. Can’t wait for the next one!
We enjoyed a wonderful time at this lovely pool today ,friendly attentive lifeguards, changing rooms and toilets inside, showers outside, drinks and ice-lollies etc to purchase.A fabulous pool set against the backdrop of grassy hills and sheep..just perfect we shall return.
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.
