Attending Hathersage Pool is a bit like travelling back in time. Many of the familiar things like on the poolside changing still exist here. The water is a lovely temperature and with the summer we have just had it is just like being abroad. The...More

After reading previous reviews about parking and queueing we arrived over an hour early. The car park opposite the pool was full. The pool has it's own car park too, but it's very small and of course this was full too. So we drove down...More
