Enhancing a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Phil and Debra, the owners of the Baron at Bucknell, a country inn located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Shropshire. Commissioned us to design and build a natural swimming pool, that would allow their guests to swim in a chemical free pool, whilst integrating with the rustic landscape.
One of their main aspects to choosing a natural swimming pool over a conventual swimming pool was the reduced maintenance schedule. Unlike with a conventional swimming pool, there is no requirement for ongoing chlorine or shock treatment. An added benefit is there is no chemical odour or the risk of sensitive skin being irritated. Giving the Baron at Bucknell’s guests a healthier swimming experience and providing a unique selling point to their property. Additionally, this allows the busy hoteliers more time to focus on their guests. To read more about the maintenance of natural swimming pools click here.
We designed and built a 10m x 5m natural swimming pool, which is 2 metres deep. The pool looks like a natural oasis, where guests swim in pristine crystal-clear water. The pool is filtered by plants, micro-organisms, and a market leading Inspired by Water filtration system. Separated from the swimming area is a 50m2 regeneration area, where impurities are absorbed by plants as nutrients and harmful bacteria are destroyed, by natural water organisms.
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 is a traditional free house country Inn considered one of the finest, near Ludlow in England. To book a stay or find out more look here.
