Where to find us
You’ll find us in the park between Newton Road and Ashburton Road, Bovey Tracey.
Sat Nav users follow TQ13 9FF.
From Ashburton Road, go through the gate into the park, next to the playground. Walk round the football club, and the pool will be straight in front of you.
Use the main entrance for all sessions, except early morning and lunch-time swim sessions, which are accessed through the side gate because the Kiosk is not manned at these times.
There is off-road parking within the recreation ground with access off Newton Road either, in front of the tennis courts or on the grass area between the tarmac drive and the hedge. Please respect the Cricket pitch and walk around it.
Bovey Tracey Swimming Pool is a charity, and relies on your donations
We are grateful for anyone who uses our pool – the money goes to keep our facility open. Ticket sales are our biggest income in the year. Choosing Gift Aid when you come to the pool provides a tremendous benefit to the pool, and we’d ask all our taxpaying users to help us in this way.
But we also need to fundraise to ensure our survival. Any size donation is most welcome.

Our fencing has been under constant pressure from our young footballing friends next door so we have had to erect a new perimeter high fence to protect our swimmers. This has cost us a pretty penny, I can assure you, so please respect our decision to cover costs by increasing the entrance prices this year. […]
Bovey Swimming Pool is now claiming Gift Aid from the government, and this needs your help! We have adjusted our ticket prices to reflect the increased costs but, when visiting the pool, we will ask you if you would like to pay our Gift Aid rate. If you say yes, you’ll be charged a few […]
