Location: Demelza House, Rook Lane, Bobbing, Sittingbourne, ME9 8DZ

Parking & Directions: There is plenty of free, on-site parking available to the rear of the main building. Customers must be as considerate as possible when walking from the car park to the pool, to be respectful to the families staying on-site with their children. Please note, the 3 large conservatories on the left are bereavement suites, which families can stay in for up to a few days after they have lost their child. Please be mindful of this as you are walking past these bereavement suites to the pool and do not allow your children up the ramp and near these windows.
