We recommend visiting the Lazonby Village and Hunsonby Village pools for swimming near Glassonby or Melmerby and the Greystoke Village Pool for swimming near Blencowe.
The Greystoke & District Village Pool, Sports Pitch and Children’s Play Area
When the weather is conducive, this great outdoor heated community pool is a fab place to while away an afternoon between May and September. The friendly volunteer team who run the pool facilities offer a selection of snacks & drinks in the tea room and are always welcoming whenever we take the kids for a swim. The pool has changing facilities and is right next to the local playground and playing fields. Just a few hundred yards up the road in the main village square is the Greystoke Village Shop and Post Office which is definitely worth a visit for local baked goods specialities, snacks and a full range of papers & magazines as is the Boot and Shoe Pub in the center of the village which does morning tea, great lunches and dinners and is very popular with local residents and visitors alike.
We recommend booking ahead when visiting these pools and checking opening times online.
