Welcome to Baby Paddlers


Our Norton Park Hotel baby swimming classes run in Sutton Scotney just on the outskirts of Winchester. It can easily be accessed from the A34, so ideal for customers from Winchester, Whitchurch, Micheldever and Andover.
Classes are held in a pool that is kept between 29C-30C and we recommend that babies wear wetsuits. This is a lovely spa pool in a beautiful location. Whilst the hotel does not encourage poolside spectators there is a separate café area, if you fancy a coffee before or after your lesson.

Want to explore the local area after swimming? We highly recommend a day out at Finkley Down Farm if the sun is shining. Alternatively a cuppa, cake and spot of toddler golf is great fun at Winchester Golf Academy!

Our Winchester Norton Park Hotel Pool

We love teaching at this beautiful spa pool just outside Winchester. It’s a great stepped entry pool, perfect for babies and toddlers. This is not a hydro pool, so we do recommend wetsuits for babies.
