    Great swim, great team and great location!
    My first visit to the lido whilst staying locally and it didn’t disappoint. I’d booked online but there were tickets available on the day too! Lots of useful information on the website and as I’d not been before the team pointed me in the right direction for lockers, showers and the cafe! The water was heated and I enjoyed a glorious swim!

    Nice pool but busy parking area !
    Me and my 13 year old came. We hadn't been before and on arrival was disappointed that the last on the till didn't inform us "where to go" to change etc. This would of been helpful. That being said now we have been once we do know. The issue is on arrival to a new place we went into the toilets and changed and there was actually separate changing rooms to the toilet area which were larger which we saw after we changed in small toilets. Cafe did lovely milkshake after our swim. Swim was 10 quid for me and my daughter for 2 hours session. One hour was enough. Pool warmer than the sea water but not really hot. Good time and will go again Best for those who can swim or the shallow end will be over crowded with all those who can't swim in it as they can't pass the marker to the deeper part Parking was limited so arrive in time and parking machine was not taking coins was pay by phone only !!

    A lovely quaint swimming experience that everyone should try.
    This is a fantastic day out and a great opportunity, not only to swim outdoors but to get a feel for a real local and community facility. We were able to book online in advance which was a good option given that we were travelling some distance to get there. We were able to park in the small car park outside and gained access quickly with plenty of room for changing at the poolside. In all honesty, the temperature of the water was a little colder than I was hoping for and expecting, and unless you are genuinely there to swim lengths in the pool, it can be a little ‘fresh’. However, the pool was very clean, the staff were friendly and the overall experience was a positive one. At a price of £7 each, it was reasonable, I suppose, especially given the fact that the facility no doubt has significant costs to keep it open. There were lovely hot showers available after you’d been in the pool and a lovely café for you to access in order to be the warmup or replace the calories you tried to lose in the first place! we will definitely return time and I’m very much looking forward to booking a night swimming session with accompanying music.

    An Autumnal outdoor swim
    A great experience. I would say it's a pool used for swimming rather than actual leisure. If you're stood about too long, you'll get cold. You definitely need to swim a few lengths to keep warm at this time of year. Really liked the simplicity of the changing rooms, adds to the experience. Lovely cafe too!

Gorgeous little cafe at the swimming pool! The best flapjacks I’ve ever tasted! Lovely cuppa after a very long walk from Hope! Very friendly staff. Highly recommended.

We moved to Derbyshire 18 months and have been promising ourselves a swim at the outdoor pool ever since.

The pool couldn't be in a better setting, in the beautiful village of Hathersage surrounded by stunning countryside.

It is a great place, super clean and exceeded our already high expectations.

The water was the perfect temperature for swimming. There are really good changing facilities and places surrounding the pool to sit and enjoy the sun or have a snack.

We enjoyed the visit so much that we booked for next week as soon as we returned home.

I loved being able to stay for 2 hours in the pool/premises, rather than the hour I normally get back home.
I loved the heated water (it was 22 degrees, which felt cold at first, but warm five minutes into the pool). My child (10), thought it was too cold and didn't stay for long at all. The temperature can fluctuate from 22 to 26 degrees, I understand, being on the colder side the coldest it is outside. We were 8-12 degrees outside, so I understand heating to more than 22 degrees would come at an enormous expense.
The only but were the showers, as only 1 or 2 seem to be working properly, yet this is not a problem if not busy.
The people were lovely, the views amazing, it was clean, not very busy... It even has a café. I would certainly love to be back if I'm ever back in that part of the country.
