Things to note for families

  • Can you organise babysitting?

    Absolutely, babysitting can be arranged with 48 hours notice at £25 per hour and will be billed to your room. All of our sitters are DBS checked and many are our lovely nannies from The Playbarn, so have first aid training and are confident in caring for children of all ages.

  • How does the child listening service work?

    This unique system allows parents to relax during their evening in the knowledge that should the little ones wake up that we'll be listening and can let them know. To use this free service anytime, simply press the button on the monitor to activate the listening device and then let the reception team know.

  • Can children use the spa?

    Yes, the spa is open to our little guests for children’s swimming in our indoor pool from 3.45pm until 5.15pm every afternoon and from 8.45am until 10.15am on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Outside of these times, Calcot Spa is for our adult guests only. The heated outdoor pool is open every day during the summer months (May to October) from 8:00am until 8:00pm. Children can enjoy a splash anytime with adult supervision.
