Where to Park
Enter Elmore from Hardwicke and the A38. Turn right down Weir Lane by the triangle. Continue up the hill and as you drop down turn left on to the track. Follow the track to the end and the lake.
Access on Foot
Alternatively park at Elmore Farm (GL2 3NT) and it’s a 25 minute walk through re wilded landscape from parking to the swimming lake. We can arrange transport on request.
Access is using the swim ladder only. Madams’ Pool is wonderfully deep in the centre. The depth of the natural pool ensures good ecological health and water quality.
Please remember the sauna is hot and you must monitor your time in there. Please be very careful around the wood fired stove.
The beauty of the swimming location is that it’s not by any roads. Please ensure you have a mobile phone with you in case of emergencies.
At the heart of the private Estate is a 250 acre area of fields, woodland and a natural swimming lake. The land here is being rewilded, to allow nature to flourish and animals roam.
This map shows you how to walk to Madam’s Pool and the private footpaths permitted. Explore the grasslands and River Severn. Listen as you wander or swim beneath the old oak trees.
Please remember that this is a conservation area. Leave no trace, close gates, keep excited dogs on leads.
