Nightingales Lane, Chalfont St Giles, £6.95m

Obviously, a house with 12 bedrooms and two acres doesn’t come cheap, but for just short of £7 million you could be taking your morning dips in this picture-perfect pool in Chalfont St Giles. The vast house has an impressive cinema room too, plus there’s potential to acquire a further 15 acres.

Dukes Covert, Bagshot, GU19, £2.2m

This five bedroom house in Bagshot has its own indoor pool, which the current owners hire out as a successful business, making it a wise investment as well as a lovely spot for a swim. Inside the house, proportions are generous – each bedroom has its own en suite and the formal dining room measures 21ft.

Rodean Crescent, London SW15, POA

Palatial Rodean House in Putney was built in 2012 and spans almost 7,000 sq ft, with six bedrooms. Not only does it have a private outdoor pool, but there’s also a gym and a sauna. There’s a large poolside terrace for outdoor dining too.

Highgate Road NW5, £395 per week


At the other end of the market, a two bedroom apartment in Highgate Road is an ideal base for someone who likes an early morning swim, even if there’s no private pool. Parliament Hill’s famed lido is less than five minutes’ walk away – and if you lived here you’d always be at the front of the queue. The flat has neutral decor and an open plan reception/kitchen.

Albion Street, Lewes, East Sussex, £1.15m

Also near a public pool is this stylish four bedroom house in the centre of desirable Lewes. Nearby Pells Pool was built in 1860 and is the UK’s oldest surviving outdoor swimming pool; it remains a popular local spot with an enthusiastic swimming community, while the sea is also just a short drive away. The house has a self-contained basement flat and three further bedrooms.

Wentworth, Virginia Water, GU25, £6,923 per week

The rent may be eye-watering, but this is no ordinary house.

There’s a pool too, of course, on the lower ground floor, with a jacuzzi.

Herbert Mews, London SW2, £490,000
