Heated indoor swimming pool
Trevalgas provides a superb 40ft (or 12.3m) heated swimming pool, with male and female changing rooms and a hot shower. Open daily all year round.
The pool is free to use. It has a constant depth of 4ft (or 1.27m) and is very popular with young families.
The pool is for the exclusive use of guests in the self-catering cottages at Trevalgas, so it’s hardly ever crowded. Indeed, many visitors have arrived as non-swimmers, and have left Trevalgas as competent swimmers!
Opening times for Swimming Pool:
The pool will normally be open at 7.45am to allow for a swim before breakfast, closing at 9.00pm (July & Aug), 8pm (Whitsun Bank holiday until end of June) or 7pm for the remainder of the year.
With such long opening hours, you can enjoy a swim every day of your stay, and whenever it suits you.

Outside play area
Trevalgas has its own on-site outdoor play area with adventure playground and recreation field. This area is suitable for all ages, and the recreation field is perfect for kicking a ball around with the kids.
The children’s adventure playground includes a Wendy House which children love to transform into a shop, home or even a theatre. This area is designed to keep your children happy and occupied while the older children walk the wobbly plank!
For the younger children, we have some farm-themed play equipment with springy animals to ride, and a large crawl-through tractor.
And there are a couple of south-facing benches, ideal for relaxing, while keeping an eye on the children. There is a small orchard, offering a peaceful and shady retreat. Some families bring a blanket, a book and refreshments to this area. Perfect.
Access to the outdoor play area is from the car park side of the leisure building. However, occupants of Bramblewood, Blackberry, Briar Patch and Linhay have direct entry from their gardens to the recreation area.
