Welcome to our new pool in the village of Chalfont St Giles on the edge of the Chiltern Hills. You will find a dedicated parking area as you enter the grounds of the property (with plans to be revamped) and we have attempted to make your visit to the pool a warm, comfortable experience.

Our kidney shaped Pool is 12.5 X 3.5m and has a depth of 80cm at the shallow end and 2.3 meters at the deep end. The water temperature is a constant 32 degrees and although at the present time the water is sanitised by chlorine only, our intention in time is to move to a UV water treatment system.

Should your day be a little frenetic, we hope that once you get to swimming you can relax and be assured that for the next 30 minutes your children are in the hands of an experienced and dedicated teachers. We have made our changing room as user friendly as possible with hairdryers and privacy curtains if required, and a small selection of swimming sundries can be purchased from the display in reception if needed. We hope you will make use of our playroom and that you will look forward to your visits to our Bucks Pool.
