The pool is heated and is generally open from June onwards. It's outdoor and is usually about 20-23 degrees. It's south facing and when the weather is warm it can be a bit of a sun trap. The depth is 3' at one end with a gentle slope to a depth of 4'. It's 12' x 24'. i hope this has been useful for you.
