The Bowdon Hotel has a small, quiet leisure pool situated in the hotel grounds.

With a separate entrance via the Leisure Club, the pool is 13m x 7m and slopes gently from 1m to 1.4m in depth with steps that are easy and safe to use while holding baby.  The temperature of the water is maintained at a welcoming 32˚C and there is also a poolside viewing area.

The reception is just inside the entrance and there are comfortable sofas and chairs in the lounge area – the ideal place to relax after class! Once you have signed in you can also leave car seats and push chairs here before heading to the changing rooms.

There is a main open changing area in each changing room with a further two cubicles and some lockers (with £1 coin). We suggest it is safer to change baby on a mat on the floor so please bring your changing mats with you.

Three showers are available in each changing room and there is an additional shower poolside.

The pool is accessed directly from the changing rooms.

Aqua Babies has hired the pool here for many years and we have really good relationships with the Hotel Manager and the Leisure Manager, who always make us very welcome.

What our Customers say...

“I just wanted to say that we really appreciated the (free) Extra Classes. They have made a massive difference in just a few weeks and Oliver is back to being confident and happy swimming.”


Grace is loving her new swimming lessons, so I just wanted to say thank you to all the teachers who have taught her.

I think Aqua Babies is a wonderful swimming class for young children and my daughter has definitely benefited and have recommended Aqua Babies to all my friends.

Helen has been brilliant with my daughter. I am totally delighted with the results we have achieved in the last two terms!

Charlotte Wedd with Pre-schooler Gizelle

I have had Sue teach throughout for both boys and think she is excellent at what she does and more importantly my children respond well and really like her.  I have nothing but praise for the classes I have been attending.
