Old Down Business Park, Emborough, Somerset, BA3 4SA


There is ample free parking available in the Mendip Self Store car park, which is immediately adjacent to the pool.

On arrival at the site, follow the main driveway up through the field. At the top of the driveway, do not go straight on, follow the road to the right so that the tall hedge is on your left. Go over the speed bump and enter the car park. Please park on the right-hand side. Please do not park immediately in front of the Self Store or Practical Van Rental Reception as this is for use by their customers. The pool itself will be clearly signposted and is 10 seconds’ walk behind the Self Store Reception.
