Throughout the lockdowns here in the UK, I’ve sought solace in the icy cold waters of our 18th Century swimming pool. Cold water immersion therapy is my favorite discovery of the past twelve months, helps me sleep and gives me the energy I need to power through my day.
A few weeks ago, our wonderful gardeners here at Mapperton drained the pool, relocated all the little critters living there, and cleaned the walls and floors. Now it looks amazing, even if it has taken a few weeks to fill back up again!
