After years of thinking and talking (as lots of you will know!) and months of plotting and scheming, our ‘spa’ project is finally up and running!
Making it happen has been exciting and a little daunting at the same time. We finally opened the doors to our guests at Easter 2015 and we have now added a coffee and ice cream bar and sauna too.
Our new swimming pool is an endless pool and is heated by our biomass boiler. It’s indoors with big doors and windows opening on to the patio to make the most of the sunshine on a beautiful day. The secure sunbathing patio means you can relax outside between swims too.
There are changing rooms, with showers and comfy seats to relax on before or after a swim. Our hydrotherapy jacuzzi seats up to 8 and is designed to ‘warm down’ after a training swim as well as being perfect to lounge and chat in too!.
The pool is open daily following animal feeding for a morning session and then again in the afternoon. Opening times vary as, although we are not required by our insurance to lifeguard all swim sessions, we do have to have a qualified first aider on call at all times. We now have a walkie talkie system in place so that you can order a milkshake or ice-cream while you’re at the pool.
Lucy has been a qualified A.S.A. swimming teacher since she first started her teaching career (a horribly long time ago!) and offers one to one teaching and coaching for children and adults wanting to learn to swim or improve their technique. Toby is a qualified life guard, and now an S.T.A swimming teacher too, so he has joined the coaching team.
