Netherton Farm natural swimming pond

Holiday homes with a natural swimming pond!

If you are looking for a holiday venue with something unique to offer then we recommend you consider Netherton Farm near Kingsbridge in Devon – it has a natural swimming pond!

We recently converted the pool there from a traditional chlorine treated system to a naturally filtered BIOTOP swimming pond. The pond is partially heated to take the chill off and is open for use between May and September. Sally and Laura who own and run Netherton Farm wanted to get away from the constant reliance on chemicals to keep the pool clean and opted for a naturally filtered system to let nature help do the work.

The natural pool is full of life and it is possible to see amphibians hiding in the planted regeneration zone while dragonflies dart around over the water. There is always something interesting to see as you would expect with a living biological system. Swimming in a natural swimming pond is a unique experience and perfect for those who want an alternative to swimming in chemically treated water.

Sally and Laura are the most welcoming hosts so if you are looking to get away and fancy swimming with nature you should give Netherton Farm a try.

An Environmental Impact Assessment was essential before work began.
