Heated Swimming Pool
The luxury, in-ground, heated swimming pool is situated in the walled/gated garden to the rear of the property. The pool is for the communal use of all three properties. Steps span the entire width to facilitate easy entry and exit. They also provide the ideal perch for young (and not so young!) to sit in shallow water and relax. Surrounded by a sun terrace, lawns and shrub borders the pool garden is a lovely place to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life.
The pool is actively managed by John on a daily basis, cleaned and water quality tested. Our new pool heater is set at a balmy 28 degrees.
The garden is not overlooked and has views over fields of sunflowers in summer. Sun Loungers are provided. Babies and toddlers can also have their own inflatable pool and Factor 50 Sun Tent.
When you tire of the sun shady spots can be found under the walnut tree and vine covered pergola.
