This is indeed an Olympic-sized, open air pool containing heated, filtered sea water. It claims to be ‘often warmer than the Med!’ with sheltered sun terraces and a paddling pool for under-eights. The Stonehaven has been surrounded by the colourful Art Deco-listed building. It is an old pool that is over 80 years. One of the fascinating things about this place is that music is incorporated with swimming.
Bude Sea Pool, Cornwall
We must tell you that this may be the last opportunity of swimming here because of the poor funding that is threatening its closure. You can guess where this pool is situated. It is tucked under the cliffs on the north Cornwall coast and it is filled by the Atlantic twice a day. This is one of the most glorious places to be and the water is very calm. It is partly a man made and a natural made too.
Llyn y Fan Fach, Brecon Beacons, Wales
This is one of the world’s natural lake and it is thought to be one of the most haunted bodies of water in Wales. This water is situated at the western border of the indomitable Black Mountains and local lore says that at 2pm on the first Sunday of August the ‘Lady of the Lake’ emerges from its depths.Stories wildly vary, but many claim she is the wronged wife of a violent husband who walked into the lake after he struck her. That aside, it makes a wonderful place for a bracing swim.
You can see where these swimming spots have become some of the best in the country.
