Spring trip to Hathersage pool

Please join us for a Spring trip to Hathersage pool in the Peak District on Saturday 1st April, returning on Sunday 2nd April.

We will swim at Hathersage Swimming Pool on Saturday, and then we have the choice of either Hathersage on Sunday or the geothermally heated New Bath Hotel Pool in Matlock. There’s an indoor cafe at Hathersage pool for any non-swimmers to keep warm in while we swim.

We’ll stay overnight in YHA Hathersage (costs £15 each, based on 6 sharing a private room). The dorms aren’t public and can be shared with up to 6 of our group. There are currently 3 more rooms available, to sleep a maximum of 18 people.

Practically, this means sorting ourselves into groups of six and then booking a room. The hostel recommends booking very soon as this was one of the last Saturdays that’s not booked up. There may be other accommodations in the village too.

It’s would take a long time by train, so we’ll need to work out lifts.

Approximate itinerary:

Saturday – Drive up in the morning, (2 hours 45 minutes) swim at Hathersage Lido, lunch, a walk nearby for anyone who wants to – it’s close to Stanage Edge and lots of lovely tors.

Sunday – Swim at either Hathersage or New Bath Hotel Pool in Matlock, lunch, and potentially another walk and then drive back returning early evening.

Timings, and more information on booking our swims at the lido coming soon.
