Cold water swimming

Don't forget to join us for our weekly cold water swim, every Sunday, from 9-10:30 am. With lifeguards on hand and hot drinks to keep you warm afterwards. It's the perfect way to ease into cold water swimming as the seasons change.

The open air pool sits in a beautiful adventure playground, so a visit to swim is also a great family day out, with climbing, skating, under 5s play, our pool tuck shop and tasty local food nearby.

How the pool was created

A gift of health for the town

Presented to the people of Buckfastleigh in 1887, when the town had a thriving woollen industry, the pool was saved from closure in 2015 by local people. Volunteers continue to support and fundraise for this vital community hub and source of wellbeing, which serves all generations.
