It proved popular with the public, media and judges alike and
received a RHS Gold Medal and The Tudor Rose Award.
The swimming zone itself is a walled rectangular section, which
sits 30cms below the water surface. Not visible from above it
creates a deeper open area of water. Surrounding this, clear shallows
meet extensive reed beds and bold sweeps of various marginal plants.
A wetland landscape, quay-side deck areas and rustic, riverside
dwellings, which includes a sauna, a round summerhouse and a shower
(all with thatched roofs) completes the relaxed feel one associates
with a rural idyll.
