After years of thinking and talking (as lots of you will know!) and months of plotting and scheming, we finally opened the doors of our indoor pool and jacuzzi in 2015. The addition of Covid to our lives has meant that our pool has become more important than ever for our guests.
In response to Covid our pool is now open for one cottage to use at a time, allowing you to swim and relax in complete safety. A chance for you to get back in the water with no one to invade your personal space and no compromise on your safety either.
Our swimming pool is an endless pool (a triathalon training 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. Our Covid swim timetable is as follows:
Sunday Bo Peep 10.30-12.30
Monday Humpty 10.30-12.30 Bo Peep 4-6.
Tuesday Bo Peep 10.30-12.30 Humpty 4-6.
Wednesday Humpty 10.30-12.30 Bo Peep 4-6
Thursday Bo Peep 10.30-12.30 Humpty 4-6
Friday Humpty 10.30-12.30
We are not required by our insurance to lifeguard all swim sessions, but we do have to have a qualified first aider on call at all times.
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.
