A natural swimming oasis in England’s iconic Cotswolds countryside. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966, the Cotswolds covers 787 square miles (2,040 km2) across five counties and is the second largest protected landscape in England. It is famed for its rolling hills, stone built cottages, celebrity residents (Kate Moss, Kate Winslet and Liz Hurley, to name a few), and the Prince of Wales’ Highgrove Estate.
Oxfordshire Natural Pool
A working farm and holiday let in the English countryside. Nestled in Oxfordshire in South East England is Hailey, a forest township surrounded by historic hamlets and scenic countryside. The name ‘Hailey’ means a clearing (in the forest of Wychwood) where hay was made.
Locals Kate and Ben Brown operate Turley Farm Barns, which includes two holiday lets and a traditional Cotswold stone barn beautifully restored as an entertainment venue. The 25 acre working farm is home to a variety of animals including sheep, cows, pigs, hens and horses and it is this bucolic setting that attracts holidaymakers from around the country.
Baron at Bucknell
Surrounded by the rolling Shropshire Hills – the site of well-known landmarks including Long Mynd, Wenlock Edge, The Wrekin and the Clee – the Baron at Bucknell near Ludlow in England is a traditional free house country inn considered one of the region’s finest. Located roughly 10 minutes away from the small medieval Welsh town of Knighton, the popular pub and retreat is known for its traditional home cooked British cuisine, warm and welcoming atmosphere, and friendly attentive staff.
Zhongxin Qianzhou Bay
The Boao Citic-Qian Zhou Bay project in China’s Hainan province is a new residential community constructed in what is a popular coastal region. The development features 26 villas, each with different-sized swimming pools, in addition to a resort-style club with large lotus-shaped, 625m m² pool, which has a 1000 m³ volume.
Understandably, the project had significant equipment requirements for pumps, filters and heaters, which needed to be delivered and installed within a short period of time.
Pools iN Schoolz
A unique program in New Zealand is literally taking pools to schools – and Waterco Ltd is playing a vital role with the provision of its new Hydroxypure chlorine-free sanitisation system and other pool equipment.
The Pools iN SchoolZ program is run by the Adam Brown Water Safety Trust, and it aims to ensure lower-decile school children aren’t prevented from learning water safety and swimming skills by the lack of access to swimming pools.
For most, a dip in a backyard swimming pool provides welcome relief from a hot and humid summer’s day; for Robert Chan, the prospect of an afternoon swim is not appealing at all. Robert is one of seven million Australians who suffer from eczema, a condition that causes ‘flare ups’ of red, dry, itchy and sometimes blistery skin, which can last for several days.
Water has long been associated with luxury and leisure. It has also always been considered clean and pure – therefore it makes sense that a Dubai-based sheikh would request chlorine-free technology for his brand new pools and water features in his private palace.
