We have just been to Shap swimming pool this afternoon. It is a great pool with a play park next door. The pool was warm. If it is a lovely sunny day you could spend all afternoon there. Refreshments available. We will def pop up again during the holidays.

We visited Shap outdoor pool last sunday. The water temperature was perfect, the staff were so friendly and the drinks and snacks were excellent value. It's closed now until next summer but we can't wait to go back.
