I needn’t have worried about swimming on my own at this pool. Everyone was friendly and I soon felt at home. It’s just a beautiful place to swim. I swam in the rain and the heat and wind : all excellent.

Ideal to enjoy a refreshing open air swim. The full size pool lets you get the lengths and is not hot, humid and over chlorinated like some indoor pools.

Personally we have arrived about 10 and stayed til at least. Never been given time restrictions. Beware it vets very busy so the earlier you get there the less likely of a big queue.
