Free Indoor Heated Pool
Our large swimming pool is covered by an amazing retractable enclosure. This means you can enjoy the pool from April until the end of October regardless of what the weather may be doing. The pool is heated and surrounded by a lovely patio area – ideal for a day by the pool or to cool off after a day out sightseeing.
Use of the pool is free for all our customers. Please note we do not have a life guard on duty so children under the age of 16 must be supervised by an adult when swimming and no-one is allowed to swim alone. Open from 8am until 7pm or dusk in September and October.
Over looking the swimming pool (and part of the bar area in the evening) is a large conservatory. This is available for use during the day as a place to relax and watch the swimmers. There is also a coffee machine for your use or in the evenings enjoy a drink from the bar.
Andrewshayes Holiday Park – Greg’s Bar and Cafe / Takeaway
You can enjoy a quiet evening drink and an evening meal in our friendly Bar, which is open Friday and Saturday nights throughout the season and daily in the school summer holidays.
Greg’s cafe / takeaway service is a great option after a busy day, serving good quality burgers, pizzas and fish and chips, all cooked to order. The takeaway is open in the evenings until 9pm daily from mid July to the end of the school holidays and over Bank Holidays weekends.

Andrewshayes Outdoor Play Areas
Outside for the younger children there is an enclosed adventure play park, shaded by a mature oak tree and with a safe bark surface there are swings, a playhouse with a slide and a climbing frame. It is situated opposite outdoor seating area of the the bar / cafe which means you can enjoy a drink or snack whilst watching your children play.
For the older children and the young at heart we have a playing field for football and other outdoor games. This is the only area we permit ball games.
There is an outdoor table tennis table near the reception, bats and balls available from reception.
Ask in reception about our lovely private woodland walk – this beautiful area of deciduous trees and native shrubs earned us a Special Distinction from the David Bellamy Scheme.
It’s perfect for a half hour wander or makes a lovely picnic spot, the woods are a lovely place to wander for all ages.
Popular with dog walkers as well, but if you are lucky you may spot a rabbit, a squirrel or even a deer. For the nature detectives amongst you there’s plenty to enjoy.
