What a treat we had today. We visited Hustyns today and had a very lovely swim in an amazing swimming pool. We gathered in Lerryn car park and headed out across some snowy roads, thankfully now some what clearer, pass the village of Withiel (we live in Lostwithiel) and arrived at Hustyns.
It is fantastic. It is set in the middle of some open fields. It is a long drive to the hotel and I must admit a lovely way to arrive. The building itself is amazing architecture. I think it was built in the 1960s and comes complete with it’s own nuclear bunker. We weren’t staying in any rooms, but the hotel does have a lot of them. This would make an ideal wedding venue. Not sure if you can get married here but Withiel church is a mile down the road and is a beautiful place to be.
What we were wanting to see was the swimming pool. It is a 20 metre pool and it comes with a sauna, steam room, hot tub and they have a swimming lane roped off when the pool is full. The swimming pool is open to everyone, the rest you need to be 16 and over. Take a look at this page to see the swimming pool: https://www.hustyns.co.uk/facilities/. We had an hour to totally immerse (pun intended) ourselves in the swimming pool and it was fun. They have a ton of soft toys, balls and several floating basket ball nets. An hour slipped by and I jumped out leaving the young people and the other leaders to enjoy another 30 minutes. It was over too soon.
Hustyns is welcoming and full of very helpful people. They couldn’t do enough for us and we had an amazing time. Thank you to all the Hustyns staff, you made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed ourselves.
For anyone reading this that runs a youth club, then heads up you can camp here as well, which in my opinion makes it the perfect venue. Hopefully, we’ll be camping here in the May half term.
