Hi Kay C, Yes our out door pool is heated during summer months, as the pool is subject to out door temperatures, night time lows does have an impact. Sean Nell

The Cumberland hotel has an outdoor pool. However the hotel shares facilities with the Suncliffe hotel,that does have an indoor pool. In fact the facilities across the 3 hotels are very good.
