Welcome to Greystoke Pool
Our heated open air swimming pool is situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Greystoke.
The water is heated by air source heat pumps and the water temperature is usually around 27c depending on the air temperature. The pool offers:
- dolphin slide
- separate toddler pool
- changing rooms
- adjoining play area and playing field.
- lifeguard on duty during all public opening hours.
Greystoke and District District Sports Association is a charity that is managed by a committee of Trustees made up entirely of local volunteers. The local facilities are an open-air swimming pool, a football playing field and two children’s play areas.
With the exception of the swimming pool the other facilities are used the entire year round by the local school, the village football team, youth groups, members of the local community as well as numerous visitors to the area.
The open-air swimming pool opens May to September and offers customers of all ages a safe, relaxing and enjoyable swimming facility in beautiful surroundings on the fringe of the Lake District National Park.
The Pool is open May until September

The pool has long needed a major and much needed refurbishment of the buildings which were developed in 1973. We started consulting on potential new improvements in 2018. There was clear and strong support in the community to see:
- Much improved changing rooms and showers
- A new cafe and kitchen looking out onto the play area.
The plans by Ashwood Design were submitted to Eden District Council in August 2018 and planning approval was granted in November.
The total cost of the prouject is around £150,000. We have been fortunate enough to be successful in a £94,000 grant application towards the costs from a major grant from the Cumbria Fells & Dales LEADER programme. This programme is supported by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and covers the period 2014 to 2020.
The Sport Association appreciates all the support it received in our grant application from the local community, local business and local groups. The grant makes possible the delivery of this really important project which ensures this vital community facility can be improved and made sustainable for the long term.
We will be going out to tender for the work this spring, with the aim of starting on site at the end of the coming season, with the spanking new facilities ready for the 2020 season.
