Moretonhampstead Swimming Pool, on the edge of Dartmoor, is open from May through to September and is run by volunteers. Our fabulous 25m outdoor pool is heated by air source heat pumps and solar power, so you can swim comfortably even when the sun is hiding behind the clouds.

The pool offers a grassed social area, a tuck shop serving hot & cold drinks, and a timetable that offers a daily general swim for all along with lane swimming, aqua fit sessions, swimming lessons, swim club and technique coaching. The pool is also available for hire.

Moreton Pool Fundraising

circle icon

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Swimming Pool Lottery over the years. Covid restrictions made it impossible to collect lottery money, so the Trustees decided to replace it with a donation page on Just Giving. 

Any contributions towards the upkeep of Moretonhampstead Community Swimming Pool will be greatly received. Swimming pools are facing an uncertain future with increased running and maintenance costs, ours included. You can donate HERE.
