Private Hire

Private hire is an opportunity for individuals or families to enjoy the seclusion and privacy of our pool, with no interruptions, scenic views and calm water.

We have 2 options for private hire:

  1. Regular hire. Book the same hour privately every week. (Only currently available before 9am or after 7pm on weekdays, before 8am or after 5pm on Saturday, Sunday 6-12am or 2-10pm)

  2. One-off hire. Select the day and time you want to come once.

Please note that due to the nature of private hire availability is very limited and normally outside of swim school hours.

Guidelines for Private Hire (updated 12th October 2021)

Our current guidelines will reduce the risk of contracting COVID when you visit our pool. They do not remove the risk completely so those at high risk or shielding must decide themselves if it is advisable to come.

Prior booking is essential & contact details could be provided to support Test & Trace. We advise visitors to scan QR code displayed using NHS Covid-19 app on entry or use the paper register in reception. When making your booking acceptance of the conditions below are assumed.

DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU OR YOUR PARTY HAVE COVID symptoms or have been advised to self-isolate. Thank-you for your help in maintaining the Health and Safety of all pool users and staff.

  8. Supervise children closely - drowning is a key risk encountered in swimming pools. Our pool is not lifeguarded for your session so you are responsible at all times for the safety of your group.

  9. Our hot tub is reopened and available for client use. Please cover it after use to retain heat. Note safety advice not to use if pregnant, monitor time children are in the hot water, and use steps provided with caution.

  10. Anti-bacterial spray is available to wipe all high touch points before and after use (benches, seats, handrail, toilet, door). Our cleaning frequency is increased, but your assistance is important as well.

  11. If anyone in your party needs to use the toilet during your swim please use Client Changing room 2

  12. Collect bag and enter Client Changing room 2 five minutes prior to your end time. Shower and change promptly (if necessary).

  13. Accessible (Disabled) facilities are available at all times for those clients who require them before, after or during your swim. Please leave these for clients who need them if possible.

  15. Safety Notices are clearly displayed in the pool hall. In particular the pool is Not Lifeguarded. Pool depth is between 1m to 1.4m. No diving or running on poolside is permitted.

  16. Always bring a mobile phone with you and be prepared to alert help in an emergency. This is an unstaffed facility and you are responsible for the health and safety of yourself and all those with you at all times. There is no land line on the premises.

  17. Lighting in the changing facilities is automatic so will come on when you enter the room and automatically turn off after you leave. Lighting on the poolside is manual. If you are the first pool user of the day please turn it on. If you are the last pool user of the day please turn it off before leaving. If you are unsure if people swim before or after you please ask.

  18. There is an accident and incident book available. Please use it to record anything, and always alert the owner so that action can be taken to prevent re-occurrence whenever possible.

  21. The Water Quality is very important to your health and safety. It is checked regularly by staff but also relies on your co-operation and vigilance.

    • If there is faeces or sick in the water evacuate immediately and do not re-enter until the owner permits. Extra cleaning will be needed. If staff aren't present then make sure they are contacted.

    • If you or your child has had diarrhoea you should not swim for 14 days.

    • If you think the water in the pool looks cloudy or unhealthy alert the manager.
