All you need to know – Lechlade Pool

Park House, The Stables, Lechlade, Gloucestershire, GL7 3FE

We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Park House – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!

Parking: Park House has parking available but it is a private property so please only park within the confines of the property itself (on the drive through the gate to the property).  Please be aware that this is a residential area and you must ensure that you drive very slowly up the private road from the main road being mindful of all residents.

Essential information:

  • Park House is located in Lechlade, located just off Oak Street (A361).
  • Approaching from Burford:
    • Follow the A361 towards Lechlade.
    • At the first roundabout, as you enter Lechlade, take the 1st exit (staying on the A361).
    • Park House is approximately ½ mile down this road on the left hand side.
    • The drive is directly opposite a red post box built into the wall next to the Lechlade Fish Bar (not the fish and chip shop near the bridge!)
    • The entrance has twin stone wall columns with round stone spheres on top.
    • Drive down the tree lined drive and when you see a big building in front of you, the drive splits.  Bear left and then continue round the drive, past the visitors car park, and carry on until you reach the end of the road.
    • Head through the open gates to Park House and park in front of the house.
    • Walk around the left hand side of the house to access the pool.
  • Approaching from Fairford:
    • Follow the A417 towards Lechlade.
    • At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto Lechlade High St (A417).
    • Straight over the traffic lights onto Oak St (A361).
    • Park House is approximately ½ mile down this road on the right hand side.
    • The drive is directly opposite a red post box built into the wall next to the Lechlade Fish Bar (not the fish and chip shop near the bridge!)
    • The entrance has twin stone wall columns with round stone spheres on top.

  • Please note that this is a private residence, and stay within the designated areas to which the owner has allowed us access.  Please be considerate to the other residents.
  • 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?
