All you need to know – Cedar Court Hotel Wakefield

Denby Dale Road, Calder Grove, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF4 3DB,

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

Location: Cedar Court Hotel

Parking: The leisure club has its own car park which is to the left of the hotel and round the back.  Free parking, however, parking spaces may be limited at peak times so please ensure you arrive in ample time. If that car park was full though, you can park in the main hotel car park instead and just walk around to the leisure club. 

**Please note there is security on the car park entrance at the moment whilst the hotel is closed to the public. Just let them know you have a Puddle Ducks class and they will let you through**


Essential information:

  • Follow the path from the car park to the left to the leisure club reception.
  • Leisure reception is straight ahead, and male, female and family changing tooms to the right.  
  • Please do not come onto poolside any sooner than 5 minutes before your class to avoid congestion on the poolside
  • Please do not enter the pool unless told to do so by your teacher. We only have access to the sectioned area of the pool, the rest of the pool is for member’s only
  • You will be asked to shower before entering the pool
  • Strictly no eating or smoking
  • 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.
    You can buy one of our great value Starter packs  which contain everything you need for your swim lesson.
  • You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page
  • Wetsuits are recommended for babies under 1 year old. 

Changing rooms: There are two changing rooms with showers for males and females, and cubicles. There is limited space so please be mindful of health club members. Both have direct access to the pool. There are lockers that require a padlock, these are available to purchase from leisure reception if you do not have one. There is also a small family changing room which is to share between more than one person.  This changing room does not have direct access to the pool though. 

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks use a roped off area,  members have use of the rest of the pool.


Access: No Spectators poolside or in leisure reception, there is a seating area just off the leisure reception area and a cafe in the Ocean Suite
