Hydrotherapy Pool

The Windmill Hydrotherapy Pool in Fulbourn, Cambridge is specifically dedicated to people with learning disabilities and physical support needs.

Our hydrotherapy pool is designed with physical aids to allow easy access into the water.

We offer sessions for everyone, as well as individuals who need short term rehabilitation to those with severe disabilities who require regular hydrotherapy sessions.

Sessions include:

  • Private hire sessions.
  • Self-referral Hydrotherapy sessions.

More detailed information on our Self-referral Hydrotherapy sessions can be found below.

These sessions are not instructor led but offer the chance for customers to spend some time in the pool to either relax or complete exercises.

Each session is mixed with other customers and can have up to 12 bathers booked in the pool, included in the 12 capacity are any in water support needed.

We do advise speaking with your GP, consultant or physiotherapist before booking to ensure you are completing exercises that will benefit you and not cause any injuries.

Please be aware that we are not physiotherapist’s and not medically qualified, we only operate the pool, if you need a physiotherapist you will need to provide this yourself.

Customers can book into a session up to a maximum of 7 days in advance, to book please contact the hydrotherapy pool team on pool@eddies.org.uk. If you are unable to attend a session which you are already booked in for, we ask you to inform us with at least 3 hours’ notice so we can fill the space. If we do not receive the adequate notice, the charge for the session will still incur.

All sessions are on a pay as you go basis or you can purchase a loyalty card which is 12 sessions for the price of 10. Please enquire for prices by emailing pool@eddies.org.uk or calling 01223 882289.

Due to the temperature of our pool, we only recommend being in the pool for 30-40 minutes at any one time which is why the hour session includes changing time before and after.

Pool facilities

The pool is 10 metres by 5 metres with a constant depth of 1.2 metres and the water is kept at a recommended hydrotherapy temperature.

We have male and female changing areas with changing/shower beds in each.

Our pool is equipped with two remote hoisting systems and a manual hoist. The remote tracking system extends from the changing areas to the pool. It allows us to transfer a person from their wheelchair onto the shower bed and then into the pool with ease. The manual hoist allows us to ease those visitors into the pool who find walking or climbing stairs difficult.

  • All sessions are supervised by fully qualified lifeguards
  • Our sound and lighting system is available on request
  • On-site parking

Our warm and friendly facility is enjoyed by a large number of people from all over East Anglia.
