Welcome

circle icon

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, 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.

The 2021 Season

circle icon

We are running the swimming pool a little differently this year, in line with Government Covid-19 guidance and with your best interests at heart. 

BOOKING SYSTEM: Please use our new booking system and pay online. It's easy to use, honest. Tickets can be purchased for all our sessions, and you can also buy season tickets. We do have a card machine at the pool if there are any problems paying online. 

SEASON TICKETS: If you’re buying a Season Ticket please purchase this in advance online, via the booking system. To do this, you must go to the ‘Class Pass’ section of the booking system, select the relevant Season Ticket, then also select a specific swim session and then follow the payment steps. Your season tickets will be waiting at the front desk ready for your first swim.

SESSIONS: Numbers are limited to 60 people in the pool per general swim session. General swim sessions are 2 hours, this includes changing time. Lane swims are limited to 30.

AT THE POOL: Have your booking reference and season ticket to hand when you come to the pool. Masks should be worn if you are spending time in the pavilion with sanitising units available for use. Please respect your fellow attendees with regards to personal space and everyone feeling secure post lockdown during their visit to the pool. We've all had differing experiences this past 18 months - making our pool environment a happy one is paramount.

CHANGING ROOMS: Our front row of changing rooms will be available to use but, where possible, please arrive at the pool ‘swim ready' to avoid any congestion. Our family changing rooms will be available for General Swim sessions. 

TOILET FACILITIES: The toilets will be open but with limited access.

REFRESHMENTS & CONFECTIONERY: From August we will be offering our usual range of munchies, ice pops plus hot and cold beverages. Please bring your travel mugs for hot beverages please - we will not be serving in our usual mugs. 

PRIVATE HIRE: We are now taking bookings.

FUN: Absolutely essential to have a lot of this after such a long break from the pool...

Looking forward to welcoming old friends and new to Moreton Pool this season!

Moreton Pool Fundraising

circle icon

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Swimming Pool Lottery over the years. Covid restrictions this past year made it impossible to collect lottery money, so the Trustees decided to replace it with a donation page on Just Giving. Far less sociable but needs must!

This season funds have been raised to resurface the pool surround. This winter's plans are to renovate the toilet blocks and sandblast the swimming pool whilst undertaking essential repair works, so any contributions will be greatly received. You can donate HERE

Many thanks to everyone who has donated money to our community pool so far. Here's to future seasons at Moretonhampstead Community Swimming Pool.
