Guests from the cottage are able to enjoy the pool’s generous dimensions which provide ample swimming space for family & friends.
The private swimming pool and its surrounding gardens remain in full sun throughout the year (not just during the summer months). Therefore whether choosing to holiday in Spring, during the summer period, or during the Autumn October half term break, you can be guaranteed that on a sunny day, you can bathe by the pool, in a position of full sunshine.
Ample sun loungers are provided to cater for the maximum capacity of the cottage, ensuring that all guests can enjoy relaxing in the gardens and/or by the pool, simultaneously.
The orchard trees provide ideal cover for those seeking a little shade, out of the heat of the midday sun.
Pool Features :
The depth at the shallow end is 1m, which gradually slopes down to a maximum at the deep end, of 1.8m. A safety ledge, 0.5m wide and 1m below the water surface, surrounds the deep end of the pool.
A telescopic shelter 18m long & 8m wide and ranging from a minimum of 1.4m to 2m high is used to cover the pool at night.
The shelter is retractable to enable open air swimming on hot sunny days and can provide sheltered swimming, out of season or should the weather be inclement.

The pool has the additional option of floodlighting, which enables guests to swim during the evenings and at night. The telescopic shelter provides excellent protection from insects which might otherwise have become a nuisance, being attracted by the floodlighting.
The pool’s water balance is controlled automatically by a high-tech saltwater purification system, which together with our regular monitoring ensures optimum bathing conditions at all times – no haphazard mixing of chemicals, or smarting eyes due with high levels of chlorine, or lingering after smells.
Made of the same materials, the telescopic shelter, fence and gate security systems are aesthetically pleasing to the eye and blend in naturally to the surrounding environment. The additional levels of security provide reassuring peace of mind for those visiting with young children.
