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 29°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, swim up & down our 11 metre long pool undisturbed during our quiet swim time!
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 8am to 9pm everyday of the year.
The pool is exclusively for our on farm guests (and us!) and is not open to the general public even if it is, as many guests say, “like a private leisure centre”.
During the pandemic we have been operating a rota with morning and afternoon sessions allotted to each property. This allows time for sanitisation between swim sessions and for the pool air handling to operate effectively.
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 is available too.
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 two degrees 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.
