There is also a 10m long indoor swimming pool heated to 30 degrees which is popular with young children. Active children will love the heated indoor sports hall where you can practice your racquet sports or just generally have a run around! But best of all, there is a Tumble Room at Poltarrow Farm which is designed especially for Under 5’s. This is packed full of soft building blocks, tunnels and slides providing the perfect opportunity for toddlers to encourage imaginative minds in a safe and secure environment.
