We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Hoburne Cotswold – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!
Location: Hoburne Cotswold
Parking: There is plenty of space to park at this venue
- As you come through the barrier, take the first road on the left and park in the main car park.
- On entering the building, walk to the right of the main reception desk, through the cafe area and bear left through the double doors to the pool.
- A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly NappyWraps & Liners underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in other programmes if they are not potty/toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value Starter Packs which contain everything you need for your swim lesson?
- All Swim Academy Children must wear swim hats in the pool. You can find these plus our range of goggles and other Swim Accessories here.
- You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page.
Changing rooms: Communal changing areas with cubicles. There are no nappy bins available here so you will need to take your used nappies home for disposal.

Helping you to make your special time last even longer...that’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference
You’re likely to be swimming with friends and make new ones along the way, so why not live life swimmingly away from the pool by meeting up before or after class. Here are some local places we think you and your children may like (please check Covid-19 restrictions before attending these places):
There is a play-park on site near to the car park.
The Cafe H coffee shop is available on site (please note only food bought at the café can be consumed).
Closest soft play
There is an indoor soft play area next to the cafe (this is an open plan area). There is also Magicland soft play in Cirencester.
