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

The pool offers a grassed social area, hot and cold refreshments, and a timetable that offers a daily general swim for all, lane swimming, aqua fit sessions, swimming lessons, technique coaching, and water polo. Each season we try to introduce new opportunities for improving fitness and confidence in the water for all ages. The pool is also available for hire.

We look forward to welcoming you!

About us & your pool

circle icon circle icon

We are a community run, open air swimming pool on the eastern edge of Dartmoor, open from May to September. The 25 metre pool is heated using air source heat pumps and solar power, and we aim to keep it at around 27 degrees.

There are changing facilities (including family and disabled facilities) as well as a small shop offering hot and cold refreshments.

The pool is surrounded by grass, picnic benches and trees, as well as a sun terrace, making it a lovely relaxing place to spend an afternoon.

We offer lane swimming sessions, aqua fit, water polo and general swim sessions for all, during which we have plenty of toys, floats and rings for children to play with in the pool. During the summer holidays we run regular swimming lessons with a qualified swim coach for children and adults.

Please see our timetable for opening times and sessions.

The swimming pool is also available for party and club hire, and a booking form is available to download on this website.
