From Whitsun until the end of September guests are welcome to use the outdoor heated swimming pool, which is has stunning views over the valley and is situated in our private well-tended garden. As we have one very large cottage and two smaller cottages the pool is available to cottage guests for exclusive sessions in allocated slots. All the cottages have two and a half hours per day exclusive use in two sessions, when no-one from any of the other cottages will be using the pool. The slots are varied so that all sessions are shared equally between the cottages. There are no extra charges for using the pool but for insurance reasons we require that you sign a Pool Booking Terms form upon arrival, prior to use.

The swimming pool is heated by our biomass boiler, which is very efficient. The pool is opened for the Whitsun week, although with good early weather it is possible that we can open earlier, and is closed at the end of September. Once again, depending upon the weather, we try to extend to mid October for half term. With the great British weather the pool is only therefore advertised as available from Whitsun to the end of September each year.

The pool is open from 0900 to 1300 and from 1400 to 1800 each day in season.
