The indoor swimming pool is a heated, deck level fully tiled pool with Jet Stream and the pool hall has full climate control. The showers and changing rooms are heated as part of the heat recovery system.  As part of our commitment to providing eco-friendly holidays, the pool water is now also heated from an array of solar panels on the south facing roof and a biomass boiler for grey days.

“Our family love visiting Cranmer Country Cottages and we have returned for the past 4 years. We all feel like its \'home from home\' and are always made to feel so welcome by the wonderful staff. The children particularly love the yummy handmade chocolates on arrival and they are so excited to jump straight in the pool after our long journey from Hampshire. It is so worth the drive! It is brilliantly located for fantastic family days out and long strolls on amazing beaches. We have so many lovely memories -”

Swimming with babies

Swimming with babies and toddlers
The luxury indoor heated pool at Cranmer is the perfect place to encourage babies and toddlers over 12 months into swimming. The water temperature is 29 degrees increasing to 30 degrees with solar gain. To prevent accidents in the pool we just ask that you use the neoprene happy nappy system that can be purchased from Amazon or Splashabout.

Please note that the pool is heated to 29 - 30 degrees maximum and is not heated to 32 degrees as an infant training pool dosed with chlorine might be. Babies and infants must wear neoprene swimming costumes and double nappies to prevent leakage. The pool is salt dosed which is not suitable for very young babies' ingestion. The pool is designed for recreational swimming it is not a leisure pool – it is a great place for children to build their confidence and learn to swim. If you have concerns about the temperature please download this information from Rospa.
