Hathersage outdoor heated swimming pool is set in a lawned enclosure with fully refurbished and covered changing facilities, Toilets, Hot showers and disabled access. Every year from March through to September It offers the opportunity to swim in the open air, amidst the glorious Peak District scenery, in water which is heated to 28°C. It is a truly unique facility with a full size band stand looking over the pool which is often in use. Every third Friday of the month during the summer the pool hosts a "Night Swim" with live bands on the band stand allowing customers to swim whilst listening to a variety of music. In 2013 the pool was voted by the Telegraph "Number 1 Lido in the UK!"

  • Love this pool. Friendly staff and plenty of space in the pool. The pool itself is divided into a swimming lengths section and a general use section and it’s plenty big enough for both. The deep end is 2m and the shallow end is about 1m with a sharp drop off so most of the pool is 2m. This means most is a good depth for swimming while younger kids and none swimmers tend to stay in the smaller 1m section. There are plenty of changing rooms (not gender segregated as they are individual cubicles) and showers at the end of each block. There are also some showers outside the changing blocks. At the side of the pool there is a covered section and a grass section as well as a band stand that sometimes has live music. There is an on site cafe with a good selection of food including marked vegetarian options!
  • Wonderful, clean facility. I just wish there were more outdoor heated pools as this one gets so busy. Only downside for children is the pool gets deep very quickly from the shallow end meaning only children who are strong swimmers can use 2 thirds of it and the shallow end is packed full
