Swimming Pool

Kingfisher Barn Swimming Pool is for guests to use at leisure. It's a private indoor heated pool and proves to be very popular with families and wheelchair users alike.

With it always heated above 30°, our guests appreciate the fact that it is usable all year round. Self catering customers are entitled to use the pool for an hour a day, every day, during their stay subject to availability or if pre-booked.  Bed and Breakfast customers may also use the pool. There is an 'early bird' slot for B&B guests, which operates between 7 - 8 am on weekdays and is complimentary.

Kingfisher Barn Swimming Pool - Safety At All Times

To ensure everybody enjoys the pool as much as possible and because we know most people don't read terms and conditions, we would like to ask you to take notice of the following points:

  • There is no lifeguard present in the swimming pool area. Everybody using the pool is responsible for themselves and their belongings

  • You must read, sign and abide by the pool Terms & Conditions - click here for more details

  • There is a maximum of 8 people allowed in the pool at one time and a maximum of 2 spectators

  • There must be a responsible adult (over 18 years old) in charge of the group at all times

  • If you need to know how to use any of the equipment in the pool area, please contact a member of staff before your session begins

The pool can be hired privately for a one off session or a block of 10 sessions if you are a non-resident (which must be used within 12 months of purchase). Please contact us for more details.
