Things you should know……..

  • Our salt-dosed indoor heated pool is available for babies over 1 year old – in accordance with health & safety advice due to salt in the water which maybe swallowed (rather than chlorine!).
  • We ask you to bring splash about nappies for use in the pool as recommended by Waterbabies who use our pool for baby swimming sessions
  • Our drinking water comes from a deep borehole on our farm land. The water is purified and is monitored by North Norfolk District Council.  It has been recommended that infants under 1 year old do not consume water from private water supplies as it is purified using salt water softening equipment.  If you are ordering an online shop from Waitrose, Tesco or Sainsbury’s perhaps add some Highland Spring or Evian low sodium spring water for little ones.
