Can anyone recomend a nice public swimming pool near Dartmoor?

Going camping there next week and worried about the weather. In case we can't hit the beach is there a nice pool near by, one with flumes, etc. We're staying at River Dart country park. Thanks.

The River Dart Country park is quite a way from any beaches, but it depends on how far you wish to journey.

There is a waterpark at Paigntonnear Torquay,
but again it's quite far, as the crow flies.

A great place for fun is Woodlands near Dartmouth, which caters for all weathers. No swimming there tho.

That waterpark looks mainly outdoors? I was thinking of an indoor one. Thanks though. smile

Most towns are small, and have normal type pools, ie at dartmouth, kingsbridge ivybridge.

Plymouth has an indoor fun pool too with a wave machine type thing!!

oh there's a normal type pool in Totnes, that's probably closer to where you are staying.

It certainly looks like everything is a long way from the campsite. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a sunny week.
