This beautiful new building houses a
swimming pool, sauna, gym, massage chair, toilets and wet rooms. The building has a totally
sustainable approach to it's construction and the impact it has on the
environment. It sits in the lee of the hill and blends in to the landscape
ensuring that it complements the beauty of the Helsbury site.
The facilities include a 15m x 5m swimming pool which has a constant depth
of 1.2m; a gym which has a number of cardio machines including a rowing
machine, recumbent bike, cross trainer and treadmill; the sauna* is extremely
spacious, there's a massage chair* and the lounge is very comfortable with a wonderful deck and
lawn at the front of the building if you just want to take in the view and
sunbathe. It's already a huge hit with guests who have used it, and because of the exclusive nature of the Helsbury experience there's always a time when you can use the pool in privacy and peace.
The building is constructed with a timber frame, granite cladding, slate
tile floors and large areas of glass to make the most of the view of the
Camel valley. The water is heated by an array of solar panels, there’s a
ground source heat pump which takes care of the space heating and a heat
recovery system which manages the humidity of the room. The roof is made of
sedum which helps insulate the building as well as looking stunning all year

"What an amazing facility to add to an already perfect place - thank you, thank you, thank you!"
----- Once again a fabulous holiday made even better this year by the excellent pool.
We really enjoyed our first stay at Helsbury Park, the pool is excellent very clever design and was used every day. We will definitely be coming back.
We had a lovely time at Helsbury Park, the pool area is fab and the views priceless.
"We had an amazing time; in fact
we all agreed that it was the best holiday we've ever had. The new pool is
gorgeous; a good size and just the right temperature, but most impressive of
all is the view from the pool of the surrounding countryside. You're really
setting the standard for dog-friendly holidays!" -----
"We all absolutely loved the pool!
Total private luxury and we went in every day. Fantastic design with a great
view too, well done Helsbury Park!”
