We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at this lovely private pool in Austerfield, Doncaster. In the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!
Location: Church Lane, Austerfield. It is located just off the main road running through the village (A614) (from A1(M) leave at Blyth and head towards Bawtry on the A614/A638. Go through Bawtry, turn right after the petrol station (located on the left hand side) and Sainsbury's Local (on the right). This is Station Road and it brings you into Austerfield. Soon after the Mayflower pub, look for a phone box opposite KAM (Keith Ashton Memorials) and turn right just before it. Turn into the driveway and drive straight down. The Grange will be straight in front of you through the gates. If you are travelling from Rossington/Auckley/Branton/Haxey/Epworth, the entrance to Church lane is on your left just after the phone box (almost opposite KAM). PLEASE USE THE BLUE DOOR ON THE RIGHT TO ACCESS THE POOL.
Procedures to follow post-Covid: We have put together some information to help you when swimming at Kelford School. This includes arrival, changing and departure procedures. Please click here to read the pool information.PLEASE NOTE: As we have a record of who is attending our lessons through our booking system and registers we are able to track and trace should we need to.
Parking: Parking at the venue is limited so we ask that customers park considerately to maximise the number of cars that can park at the property. Parking in the laybay next to the telephone box at the end of the driveway is permitted but only as a last resort.
There is parking available in front of and around the property. You can park in front of the pool which is on your right as you enter the property. Please park in two rows of three. There is also spaces for two cars in front of the garage as well as 2/3 cars along the wall and another 3 or 4 down the side of the house on the grass (the owner does not mind parking on the grass, this is much preferable than parking on the road. PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE NARROW ROAD THAT LEADS UP TO THE HOUSE, THIS IS CHURCH LANE AND MUST BE KEPT CLEAR FOR ACCESS BY ANOTHER PROPERTY NEXT DOOR TO THE GRANGE.
