Hathersage Outdoor Swimming Pool

...where better for an outdoor swim?

This unique outdoor heated swimming pool, which is owned and managed by Hathersage Parish Council, is set in a lawned enclosure with a covered veranda to one side.

It gives users the opportunity to swim in the open air, amidst the glorious Peak District scenery and in beautiful warm water, which is heated to 84°F / 29°C. Regular users take advantage of the uniquely warm water and swim throughout the season from April to September.

Our refurbished changing cubicles and hot showers will add to this pleasurable experience. We look forward to welcoming you to Hathersage pool.

Group bookings may be made during public sessions. Private parties can be booked on Saturdays and Sundays from 5pm to 6pm.

We can cater for private parties, independently or in conjunction with the swimming pool or hard play area.

We run Aqua Fun sessions with a variety of floats and pool toys, as well as occasional scuba sessions and other fitness activities, such as Aquarobics.

We serve food, drink, ice cream and sweets from 8am until the pool closes. Eat directly at the poolside, inside in the café or outside on our large patio area. Our menu includes homemade meals, soups and cakes, with healthy and vegetarian options. We have a full takeaway service which includes freshly battered fish and chips.
