The pool is open from end of March until November.

 

The pool area is a large wooden decked area surrounding the pool, with deck chairs and with a gate coming from the main patio. The area is completely surrounded by a gated fence to help prevent children entering the area, and thus the pool, unsupervised.

The pool itself is 9 meters long, 4.5 meters wide, 0.9 meters deep at the shallow end, which is accessed by steps, and 1.85 meters deep at the deep end. It has a special overnight cover which keeps a lot of the heat gathered during the day in, and thus providing a warm into the 30's degrees centigrade water, even in the mornings! It has an advanced filtering system and during the warm months is maintained by a pool man on a weekly basis to ensure clean and safe water.
