Overview

Chagford Pool is a unique friendly 34 metre river fed pool, set on the banks of the Teign in lovely countryside just outside Chagford. We are open every afternoon, with additional opportunities for peaceful lengths swimming. Please look at our website for our full timetable. The very soft water is warmed by air source heat pumps and maintained by solar covers, and is approximately 24 degrees. Qualified lifeguards are always in attendance and drinks and basic snacks are available. The under 5s paddling pool has a range of toy boats and watering cans.
