Sacha and James Cole, Herts
Sacha Cole lives in Hertfordshire with her husband James and two young children. “I first saw the concept in a lifestyle magazine.” she says. “The article pitted the natural swimming pond against conventional swimming pools and, for me, there really was no contest…
“I love the natural beauty of it. The way it grows and becomes part of the garden. Also the lovely clean feeling of the water and the joy of swimming without chemicals like chlorine that we really shouldn’t be allowing near our skin.
“This whole summer we’ve been in it all the time. It’s absolutely fantastic.”
