Bird’s Farm Facilities

Bird's Farm Holiday Cottages, Essex - Swimming Pool

Swimming Pool

Our onsite 30ft by 15ft pool captures the sun, being enclosed on three sides by a wall and a fence with a gate on the other side. It’s solar heated, but has a heat pump to assist when required.

We open the pool from the end of May to the first week of September. If the weather is good, we may open earlier or later at our discretion.

Access to the pool is via steps at the shallow end or the ladder at the deep end. The shallow end has a depth of 3 feet, which gradually increases to a maximum of 6 feet 3 inches. Sun loungers and parasols are provided. The pool is for residents use only.

So on those days, why not use our games room which is located on the first floor, above reception?

It has a pool table, small table football, selection of board games, books and toys.
