Sandy beaches are fine and a swim in the sea off Cornwall’s Atlantic coast can be refreshing (bracing perhaps?) but it’s a lot more convenient to have access to a modern indoor pool just a few yards from your front door.

Trevalgas provides a superb 40 ft (or 12.3m) heated swimming pool, with male and female changing rooms and a hot shower, open daily.

The pool is free to use, 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 tell us that more often than not, they have the pool to themselves.

In addition, we know that guests have arrived as non-swimmers, and having spent time in the pool have departed as swimmers!

Opening times for Pool:

The swimming pool is open all year!

The pool will now normally be open at 7.45am to allow for a swim before breakfast, closing at 9pm (First Saturday in July & Aug), 8pm (Whitsun bank holiday in May until First Saturday in July) or 7pm (for the remainder of the year).

The only exceptions are that it will be closed on the afternoon of Christmas day, and the morning of New Year’s Day.

With such long opening hours you can enjoy a swim every day, whenever it suits you.


While we appreciate that most guests have mobile phones, there is a Payphone in the Leisure Building near to the Laundry.  This also serves as an emergency phone for the swimming pool.
