Helmsley Open Air Swimming Pool

Yorkshire’s only 25m heated open air pool. We are a Charity (1184090) providing affordable outdoor swimming and a ‘holiday atmosphere’ to our local community and many visitors. Nestling in the North York Moors National Park, our open air pool is in the heart of the countryside.

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.
