5 Outdoor Swimming Pools within a 2 Hour Drive of Newcastle



I asked over on my Facebook page if Haltwhistle Outdoor Pool was worth a visit and it was a resounding yes (click here to read the responses). A few people mentioned cheaper alternatives though so I decided to put them together in one handy post. Let's hope we have the weather for it this summer! Let me know in the comments if you have any outdoor pool recommendations too.

Stanhope Pool is a heated open-air pool and registered charity in Durham. There's a small indoor pool for toddlers too. A lovely reader has informed me that they are currently trying to raise funds for a new slide and that there are stepping stones by the river to enjoy nearby.

  1. I had no idea that any of these existed! SO useful, I'm going to keep this in mind for when our niece and nephew come to visit next month (just hope it's going to be hot and sunny!)
