Private Indoor Swimming Pool

The pool is housed within its own purpose built building in the grounds, and is 12-metres long and 6metres wide. It is heated and features a stepped entry. At the shallow end with the entry point, the water is just 0.6 metres deep, ideal for paddling, whilst at the opposite end the pool reaches a depth of 2.2 metres. There is no lifeguard at the pool, so you are responsible for your own safety. For the safety of everyone using the pool, there must be 2 adults present at all times.

The pool has two changing rooms – both equipped with showers, toilets, and baby changing facilities. Seating is available around the pool for those who do not wish to swim.
