Yes, the hire time is for your use of the facility. You have access 5 mins before your booked time slot and 5 mins after. You must thoroughly shower before entering the pool but may decide to shower at home to give more pool time. The 5 mins beyond the hire time is for you to mop up and ensure the facility is left how you found it.
Showering helps remove sweat, lotions, sunscreen, bacteria and organic matter. This means the chlorine in the pool won’t have to work as hard, and more illnesses can be prevented. It also means we can use less chemicals which results in clearer more pleasant water. We provide shower gel and shampoo for your convenience.

The owners are parents of 3 young children and know too well that accidents can happen, especially when having fun. The pool rules are that a child needs to have been successfully and fully trained for 3 months before there is no happy nappy requirement. It is not worth the risk for the owners as its a time consuming issue to resolve and means closing the pool for a minimum of 48 hours.
This is someone’s home. It will always be immaculate when you arrive and so we expect it to be respected and left the same way for the good of everyone.
