its frrrrreeeezing as not heated!!!! Even the kids didnt want to go in. On a hot day it was 16c!!! indoor is ok but forget the outdoor one unless you have a wetsuit...


Had a great time here with my 4 children and friends during the hot weather. Although we enjoyed our time here there were a few things that definitely could of improved it ... 1st being there are only 4 toilets 2 for females and 2 for males they were disgusting and didn't have toilet paper, this leads me to thinking that the pools sanity will be affected by this! Secondly people could basically do what they liked once in and I saw parents putting babies in the pool for long periods of time without swim nappies and nothing was said, whilst swimming I was frequently passed by rubbish that had blown in, the bins were over flowing, the childrens pools had a slimey bottom and looked murky I suspect this is a combination of lots of sun cream and babies in without swim nappies! In conclusion could be a very nice day out if steps were taken to improve the hygeine of the place.
