It was a shame the outside section was closed on day we went but my son and I still had a great time. Worth the drive.

I visited with a group of people and was were able to purchase a family ticket costing £21.00 for 4. The changing rooms and lockers were plentiful and the whole area very clean. There are public showers or a few in cubicles. Hair dryers are free. The pool itself was not too busy and there was plenty of room to... More

Looks awful outside. The fountains don't work and the ponds are empty. Too expensive. Overcrowded. Good luck finding a lockable changing room. Let alone a family one. Most of the lockers are out of action. External lazy river shut but no mention of this on website. Toilets disgusting and smelly. Don't go until they invest the overpriced entry fee into... More

Came here as we knew it would be suitable for our 3 months old granddaughter, changing facilities are always a bit tight and during peak times you will have to wait to find family changing rooms. Found the changing area quite clean although could do with a rinse down during the day. I had read a review on here saying... More

For the money paid it was not worth it. The water was NOT 1.1 m as it barely came to my waist and I'm 5' tall. The wave machine was off because the water was too low. And the pool was being cleaned by lifeguards with cloths while we were in the water. The pool was uncomfortably over crowded too.

Grandchildren love the shallow end as they are just learning to swim. Fountain is good fun as is the current that sweeps you along one section of the pool. The wave machine kicks in with plenty of warning so everyone had lots of fun.

If you want to swim lengths then this is not the pool for you. It is for messing about with your friends; ideal for kids. There is a slide, which has varying heights, I burnt my thigh going down it, but the kids were okay. I found very few people using the showers before getting into the pool and the... More
