I took my 3 month old here for her first ever swim and it was fab! It did rain to begin with but it didn't stop us as the pool is still fairly warm. I think it's normal about 28 degrees, but if you put them in a wetsuit type swim suit it's plenty warm enough for a 5-10 min... More

If you avoid the school holidays this is a great outdoor swim . Simple and clean. Has lanes and well situated in centre of Topsham . Parking gets busy in the adjacent public carpark though.

Visited on a popular August hot day. Pool was very busy, as it was Children's Inflatables Session, so not so much room to swim in as kids would have liked, but lovely little village pool nevertheless.

When I was young, there were loads of these outdoor pools. Now they are rare. All the more reason to visit when I can! This is a heated pool. It is small but absolutely fine. Friendly staff. Changing facilities rather public if you are embarrassed!

One of the rare public outdoor pools. Great for a sunbathe and a swim on a sunny afternoon. Or lengths before work or of an evening. Not a bad entrance price compared to other public pools.

Standard outdoor pool with seating around the outside. There isn't really anything inside apart from the changing rooms and reception and the changing rooms are pretty standard and there's a hot drinks and vending machine outside. Used to go there as a kid and on Wednesday afternoons (I think) they did the big inflatable course which was the best. Easy... More
