Toby and Susan Burton, Oxfordshire
Toby and Susan Burton live in Hambleden in Oxfordshire with their young family, overlooking the Hambleden valley...
“The water temperature is much better than we expected. We have seen averages of 23 and 24 degrees for long periods and I have a very hard time getting my boys out of the water.
"I do appreciate the fact that there are no chemicals. It is a real plus that we can do without chlorine and filters churning away all the time. The experience of swimming in pure, natural water is so superior to a chlorinated pool or even the sea.
"It is quite amazing also how everybody who walks along the footpath comments on how fabulous the swimming pond is!”
