Swimming pools

Please note, use of our swimming and hydrotherapy pools is only for beneficiaries on our activity-based programmes and only when supervised by a member of our team as part of your schedule.

Please shower before using the pool and enter via the steps. Due to limited space in our changing facilities, we ask that anyone using either of our pools changes in their room, so you may wish to bring a robe or dressing gown with you for your comfort. Appropriate and clean footwear and clothing must be worn.

The use of snorkels, masks, flippers or inflatables is prohibited in the pool, and running, jumping and/or diving is not permitted. People with open wounds, communicable diseases, compromised immune systems or recent bouts of diarrhoea should avoid using the pool. Due to the type of lighting in the pool, there may be flickering on the water that may affect those prone to epileptic seizures.


Please note, use of our gym facilities is only for beneficiaries on our activity-based programmes and only when supervised by a member of our team as part of your schedule.

We will be limiting the use of certain pieces of equipment in accordance with the number of people in the gym at any time, arranging those in use to ensure you’re keeping a safe distance from your counterparts. Please be patient with us if a certain piece of equipment is available, as these measures are in place for everyone’s safety.

You do not need to wear a mask while you’re in the gym, but we will have disposable masks on hand if your practitioner needs to get closer to you to show you how to correctly perform an exercise during a session.

We ask that you assist us in wiping down whatever gym equipment you use before putting it away using available wipes and alcohol gel. We will allow time in between each session for our physio team to wipe everything down, but your support in achieving this will be greatly appreciated. There will also be a deep clean of all facilities at the end of each day.


We have a licensed bar on site, but it is currently only available to those beneficiaries joining us for an activity-based programme. As we are a cashless site, we ask that drinks are paid for through contactless payment. Please maintain social distancing while using the bar.


There is a designated smoking area on the patio facing the river, with a provided cigarette bin. Otherwise smoking is not permitted on the rest of the site, which includes the use of e- cigarettes and vaping. Please maintain social distancing measures when using  the smoking area.


We have an arrangement with the local golf club for guests to enjoy cheaper rates during any down time they may have. Please ask at Reception for more information.


The Charity has the fishing rights along the stretch of the River Eamont that runs alongside the centre. It is essential each person fishing the river has their own license as this may result in a charge for both you and the Charity if found fishing without one. Licenses can be purchased from Penrith Post Office for the duration of your stay.
