Swimming Pool, Sauna and Steam Room

Guests are entitled to one bookable daily swim session of 45 minutes, per cottage. Sign up for your preferred time on the timetable in the pool lobby. Guests from only one cottage are permitted in the pool complex at any time.

The sauna and steam room are open and available to use during the bookable daily swim sessions.

Games Room

Children and families have been enjoying the games and toys available, which is delightful to see. There's something for everyone from baby gyms to a full-sized pool table, ping pong and even air hockey!

What to do if you become unwell with COVID-19 symptoms

We adhere to government guidance on reporting and managing potential infection cases.

  • Staff experiencing similar symptoms will go home to self-isolate for 5 days.
  • Sufferers should not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
  • If symptoms worsen, NHS 111 should be called, or their website visited:
  • In case of acute breathing difficulties, 999 should be called.

Once a property is vacated post infection, appropriate cleaning procedures will be followed.
