We have four incredible water parks at Haven, packed to the brim with fun-filled splash-tacular features for all the family including flumes, wave machines, tots pools, water-tipping buckets and many more. At our Craig Tara waterpark in Scotland, we've recently also launched an incredible light-filled filled flume which you can check out in this video.
Learn more about our four Haven waterparks and their individual features.
All of our holiday parks offer a heated indoor pool, perfect for enjoyable holiday memory-making, whatever the weather outside. Some offer an array of fun features, perfect for a splashabout with the kids, while others are more simpler in design, offering more space for guests to stretch out and swim. These pools are also perfect for little ones looking to practice their swimming skills.
The lazy rivers at our holiday parks are an ever-popular choice with guests looking to relax and unwind with the loved ones. This chilled out water wonder glides you along its path, allowing you to float and take in the surroundings.
Some coolly connect two pools, others sit amongst the slides and a number have powerful poolside jets for you to make a pit stop at. There are also a couple of indoor lazy rivers at our Splashaway Bay water parks.
Nothing says ‘holiday’ quite like a sun-kissed dip in an outdoor pool. Our pools are on hand to give you just this experience, and are a particularly popular hit on our parks, at least when there’s no water falling from above!
We’ve got Simple Pools to practice your strokes, Larger Pools for a bit more space, and pools with added flumes, slides and much more.
How swimming at Haven works
For indoor swimming before 6pm you can book slots before and during your stay.
You can enjoy up to 14 pre-6pm indoor swim slots per holiday booking. These can be booked from four weeks before your break start date and throughout your entire stay with us on park. Each swim slot lasts for 60 minutes. Book via haven.com/experience
*Outdoor pools, and some, but not all, SplashZones and Lazy Rivers, are open from 11 April – 05 September incl., weather permitting. After this date, they will be open during Saturday and Sunday only until 30 September when they then close for the season. Outdoor pools at Devon Cliffs, Golden Sands and Primrose Valley are now closed for the rest of the season. On some parks our outdoor pools, Lazy Rivers and SplashZones can only be enjoyed if you have a booking for the indoor pool session.
