In the Pool Barn you will find our luxurious heated swimming pool, the changing room and toilet facilities are wheelchair friendly, so pushchair friendly too! The swimming pool is a marvellous all weather facility. It is open all year round and is exclusively for guests staying on our farm.
Indoor Heated Swimming Pool with Wet Floor Shower Facilities and Changing Rooms
During your stay at Hicks Farm we feel sure the swimming pool will enhance your stay with us.
Enjoy a relaxing swim in our pool, heated to 28°C, simply lie back and let your troubles and cares just float away.
You can even swim to your favourite CD or music from your phone.
And, if you are feeling energetic, enjoy a swim up and down our 11 metre long pool – it will keep you fit!
The pool is not just a bath tub! Guests are often really surprised at the size of the pool, at 11metres by 5 metres it really isn’t small!
The swimming pool is available for use 9am to 8pm everyday of the year.
The pool is exclusively for our on farm guests (and us!). It is not open to the general public. In fact many guests say, it is “like having our own private leisure centre”.
During the pandemic we operated a timetable for the use of the swimming pool. It proved very popular & we will be continuing with this new regime until further notice. Sessions are allocated throughout the day to each property, from 9am to 7pm, with a Quiet Swim Session from 7pm to 8pm.
To make life easier for everyone we have two large changing rooms, a disabled toilet accessible from the foyer and another toilet next to the shower area.
Both changing rooms have plenty of hanging space above the plastic slatted benches, one room has a baby-changing table too!
The underfloor heating keeps everything warm and dry all year round.
Wet Floor Shower Area.
For added convenience the shower room is wheel chair accessible. A shower chair and extra grab bars are available.
By arrangement our less mobile guests can use this for showering privately.
The power showers are temperature adjustable, making showering before you enter the pool and after your swim much more pleasurable!
If you want to watch your family or friends splashing around, without getting wet yourself, the sitting area is perfect for you.
Comfy chairs are provided, however the pool hall is heated to a degree hotter than the pool water so don’t wrap up too warm!
As we do not have a lifeguard on duty all guests using the swimming pool do so at their own risk. For their own safety all children under the age of 15 years old using the pool must be accompanied by an adult. On arrival all guests are required to sign to accept our Pool Safety Code, a copy of which can be seen below.
