The sport and leisure facilities at Poltarrow have been especially created for guests looking for a relaxing holiday, but also for those wanting a little more activity.
The facilities are for the enjoyment of guests staying at Poltarrow and are situated a few minutes walk from the Cottages, but just far enough not to spoil the tranquility of your holiday home.
Indoor Swimming Pool
Understandably popular, the indoor swimming pool is at a constant temperature of 30 degrees celcius, making swimming a relaxing experience, just the thing for de-stressing. The pool is 10m long and 4m wide and a constant 1.4 m depth. Ideal for parents with small children. There is also a changing room and shower. For safety, access can only be obtained through a security system and is available to guests from 7am to 9.00pm. (except Saturday mornings when it is closed for cleaning) So perfect, whatever the season - whatever the weather. The swimming pool is available from Mid February to the beginning of January.
The large heated sports hall has a range of sports for most ages. Test your skills with a quiet game of short mat bowls or take a cue and stepup to the table for a game of pool. Table tennis, short tennis and badminton can be good fun, where you can improve on your footwork and racquet movement providing the opportunity for a vigorous workout.
Specifically designed for the under 5's, where children can feel safe and secure. This is the perfect place to encourage imaginative minds to discover fantasy and fun. Soft building blocks, tunnels and slides make perfect hideaways, stimulating games, exercise and creative play.
The lake is fed from natural springs and has varying depths of water to accommodate the needs of rudd, perch, blue orf and of course the elusive carp. Experience the delight of sitting in the stillness by the waters edge, or on the lake in the rowing boat Jubilee, waiting for the "big one". Now's the time to get fishing.
If you just want to relax, then why not stroll around the forty five acres of fields, passing the pond with appleyard, call duck, mandarin and carolina ducks. Through to the woodland where you can get closeup to the wildlife. Watch the resident buzzards soar above with their high pitched call, the statuesque heron standing on one leg, looking for his supper. You are certain to find something that will make your visit to Poltarrow special.
