A holiday just wouldn’t be a holiday without a quick dip in the pool! Swimming is one of those easy, leisurely sports that is both healthy and fun and is appreciated by all ages and abilities. Whilst we can’t offer you the experience of swimming in a warm open sea, we can offer some great swimming facilities, including our own open air heated pool!
Hathersage swimming pool dates back to 1936 and has been completely modernised to provide all mod cons whilst still retaining its original character. Today it offers swimmers the chance to swim in the open air amongst the stunning surroundings of the Peak District. And don’t worry about the water being cold, it’s heated to a constant 28°C. Facilities include a covered veranda, cafe and play area. It’s an unbeatable experience and highly recommended!
