Indoor Swimming Pool, Games Room and Fitness Gym

Our indoor swimming pool complex is a very popular facility with our holiday cottage guests. It houses a 10 metre x 5 metre indoor heated pool, a Finnish sauna, a fully-equipped gymnasium and a large indoor games room.

The building, which from the outside resembles a barn, is carefully sited between mature trees and hedges so that it does not interfere with the natural beauty of South Coombe.

Outside it is landscaped with terraces, plants and shrubs enclosed by the existing natural Devon banks in order to make the most of its sunny south facing aspect. The main entrance is approached by a ramp in order to facilitate easy access.

Swimming pool complex
Open all year round.

The swimming pool is housed in a large airy space with wonderful oak beams straddling the large vaulted ceiling. The water is at a constant depth of 1.2 metres and is kept comfortably warm.


Overlooking the pool is our Finnish sauna, completely clad in specially treated timber and with a smoked glass door. Adjacent to the sauna is a shower for use before and after using the pool and the sauna.

“There’s too much to say about south coombe cottages! Relaxing, beautiful, comfortable, stunning surroundings.

The facilities include a swimming pool that the children were never out of, a games room, a gym (£10 for the week) sauna and an outdoor play area.

Chris and Jonquil the owners were so welcoming and helpful and made our stay even more enjoyable.

I would highly recommend these cottages. We are booked for august 2014 and can’t wait!”
