Private Lessons

Private swimming lessons are a great way to develop and improve your swimming technique and water confidence in the water. Our private swimming lessons are open to all abilities and ages and we tailor the lessons to fit your needs.  We provide bespoke sessions to support the swimmer at their pace whether it be for an adult or a child. Lessons are focussed around your outcomes and we put the steps in place in order to help you reach them.

Our private swimming lessons can be done in a one to one or one to two format, providing swimmers are of a similar ability. Private lessons are flexible and can be arranged at a time to suit your schedule (where possible)


Northside Farm Retreat - £25  for up to 2 swimmers, £27.50 for up to 3 swimmers from the same bubble.

Payment can be made by bank transfer, direct debit, or cash.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the water temperature like?

Unfortunately, we do not have a hydro pool at our disposal, but our pool is warmer then most public swimming pools at around 31 degrees. We find even the younger babies are fine in the water for a full 30 min lesson, with the aid of a baby wet suit or neoprene wrap which can be purchased on line.

What does my child need to bring to the lessons?

Just themselves in their swimming costumes. We supply all the swimming aids required. They can wear their own goggles and swim hats, or even bring a favorite toy if it helps them to feel more at ease. Babies and toddler who are not toilet trained must wear a double layer nappy system. Our preference is a disposable swimming nappy and a neoprene nappy, like a happy nappy.

What age can my child start?

We teach children of all ages, our youngest swimmer so far has been just 6 weeks old. The prime time to start baby swimming is from between 3-4 months old as they still have their natural swimming reflexes but are physically developed enough to be able to hold their head up and do more in the water.

How many swimmers will there be in a class?

We have a maximum of 8 child and parent pairs in our baby and toddler classes and 6 swimmers in our main stream classes. The group size will also depend on the confidence and ability of the group.

How do I enroll?

Contact Lillypad Swimmers by either email, phone or via our Facebook page and tell us what class you would like to enrol in. We will enrol you to start straight away if there are places available or we will put you on our waiting list.
