Turtle Tots Northern Ireland – The West - Our Pools
The Venue – Bushtown Hotel
The Bushtown Hotel is situated between Limavady and Coleriane. It is situated off the Drumcroone Road.
The swimming pool is situated at the back of the hotel in the Country Club. The separate entrance at the back of the hotel will be the easiest place to enter for your classes. There is ample free parking at the back of the hotel. Please may we also ask parents to leave push chairs/buggy’s/carseats outside the changing rooms.
Reception & Facilities
When you arrive at the pool the changing facilities are just on the right before the pool reception. There are male and female changing area with lockers, showers, and a toilet. As we will have multiple babies who need to get changed at the same time the safest place to change your baby is on the floor and we recommend you bring your travel changing mat with you. There will be a travel cot in the changing rooms where babies can play safely once dressed whilst parents get changed.
The pool runs at approximately at 30 degrees, with a depth ranging from 1.8m to 1.2m.

It is a fantastic facility for teaching both babies and toddlers swimming and we are extremely grateful to the Bushtown Hotel for allowing us to have exclusive use of the pool during our class times. For Health and Safety reasons we ask parents not to carry their child into the water down the steps. So for both babies, please could you lay them on the poolside (feet facing the water) and for the older babies and toddlers sitting them up on poolside. Parents are to sit close to their child and make a slide entrance into the pool, then pick up or help your little one into the water.
This pool has a strict swimming cap policy so we must wear swimming caps for our lessons. We can provide these at a cost of £2.50.
We welcome family and friends to come and watch, please just ensure they remove their shoes and bring flip flops or equivalent for the pool side. Please ensure your little ones do not run around the poolside area. Thank you.
