Especially created for guests looking for a relaxing holiday but also for those wanting a little more activity.
Our facilities at Poltarrow Farm have been created with a variety of tastes in mind; we know that some of our guests choose to stay with us so they can relax in the countryside, quietly soaking in the wildlife and fresh air. Families come here to get outdoors and also to have lots of fun with the children — our facilities offer the best of both worlds.
The facilities are for the enjoyment of guests staying at Poltarrow and are situated a few minutes’ walk from the cottages, just far enough away to preserve the tranquility of your holiday home.
Indoor Swimming Pool
Understandably popular, the indoor swimming pool is at a constant temperature of 30 degrees celcius, making swimming a relaxing experience, just the thing for de-stressing at any time of the year.
The Sports Hall
The large heated sports hall has a range of sports for most ages. Take a cue and step up to the table for a game of pool. Table tennis, short tennis and badminton are good fun, where you can improve on your footwork and racquet movement providing the opportunity for a vigorous workout.
The Tumble Room
Our Tumble Room is designed for children under 5 to feel safe and secure while playing, exploring and learning. It’s the perfect place to encourage imaginative minds to discover fantasy and fun. Soft building blocks, tunnels and slides make perfect hideaways, stimulating games, exercise and creative play.
In the enclosed outdoor play area youngsters can meet new friends, climb the fort steps and let their imagination flow – is it a pirate ship, a secret camp base or a wildlife hide?
The lake is fed from natural springs and has varying depths of water to accommodate the needs of rudd, perch, blue orf and the elusive carp. Experience the joys of sitting in the stillness by the water’s edge, or on the lake in the rowing boat Jubilee, waiting for the “big one”.
The Farm Trail
If you just want to relax, then why not stroll around our 45 acres of fields? You’ll pass the lake and pond on through to the woodland; watch buzzards soar above with their high pitched call and the statuesque heron standing on one leg, looking for his supper.
