pool-partyPool Parties

Poolside Manor Pool Parties are famous all over for the lasting enjoyment they bring.

They are suitable for children of all ages (aged 5 and above). Friends and siblings who are aged under five are welcome in the water, provided there is a designated adult prepared to accompany each of them in the water if deemed necessary by the party lifeguards upon being swim tested at the beginning. Any adults required in the water are included in the number of swimmers.

All children are swim-tested to decide who needs to wear armbands (supplied by Poolside Manor) and those that wish to swim at the deep-end are then tested again.


Parties are often booked to celebrate a child’s birthday, although any celebration is in order!

Parties take place on a Saturday and Sunday afternoon, each lasting 2 hours. There are three- 2 hour slots on each day such is the demand we face.

Guests arrive fifteen minutes before the party starts to greet each other and get changed. A maximum of thirty swimmers are permitted to swim, which includes all siblings under the age of five and their guardian.

Party format

Parties launch into their first hour with swimming delight split into two parts.

  • The first part is host to an assortment of exciting pool games, led by our party lifeguards. The second part is a complete free play session where smiles are at their widest. Swimmers roam the pool as they wish, with music accompanying their journey on floats and giant inflatables, through hoops, floating and sinking toys and jumping and diving in. After a memorable Happy Birthday sing-along, guests vacate the pool, racing to get changed for their party food. (Food, plates and table cloths are not provided by Poolside Manor, but tables are provided.)
  • Once guests have enjoyed the last of their food, dry games begin in our activity hall, ranging from party classics to some modern greats. Our party staff will also clean and tidy up while children enjoy the dry games before the party draws to an end and children go home to tell their friends what great fun they’ve had.

Number of Swimmers

The normal party format is provided for up to 25 swimmers. We can accommodate up to 30 swimmers in the pool at any one time. This does require us to provide a fourth lifeguard to comply with our swimmer to lifeguard ratios; at a marginal cost.


Poolside Manor party invites are available for all guests within the price of the party. They will be sent out to you as soon as your party is booked. They contain information such as the format of a party, our contact details, how to find us, and a little about PSM.

Parties are booked on a first come first served basis. Our pool parties are extremely popular, with many bookings taken months in advance. We therefore strongly recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment.

Please Note:
  • Party availability can only be obtained by telephoning our reception.
  • Bookings are only made on payment of the deposit amount and cannot be reserved until payment is made. The remainder of the balance is then due on the day of the party. Bookings are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
  • No alcohol is to be consumed on site due to licensing regulations.
  • In line with our Water Quality Policy, all bathers must wear swimming caps whenever they are in the pool.
  • Photography and video recording are permitted subject to approval of the party parents and/or Poolside Manor management.
