Longueville Manor Hotel, Jersey, UK
What’s so great about this pool?
This is a charming, secluded pool in a lovely estate in Jersey – one of the loveliest of the Channel Islands. It’s in a very relaxed setting, outdoors in a beautiful garden. When the sun is shining, it’s like being in a woodland glade. And because the climate in Jersey is warmer than the mainland of England, it’s a great place to lie back and catch a few rays of sunshine.

- It is kept at a balmy 35 degrees centigrade

The pool’s fab – so what about the rest of the hotel?
Longueville Manor Hotel is a five star hotel in a large 18 acre (7 hectare) estate. The hotel has woodland walks, an ornamental lake and an original Victorian kitchen garden. It is a superb place if you’re looking for light exercise. There is a spa, tennis courts, a nearby golf course and it’s only a mile to the nearest beach.
It’s a small hotel – only 30 rooms – but they are all very luxurious. The restaurant boasts a top chef, excellent cuisine – using locally sourced produce – and a superb selection of wines.
What else is there to do around there?
Jersey is relatively small (just nine miles long), so its very easy to get around. The Longueville Manor Hotel is only two miles from St Helier, the island’s capital and major shopping centre.
There are heaps of golf courses, loads of places to walk and you can take boat trips to see the stunning coastline. There are wonderful beaches and in summer, the sands rival almost anything n Europe.
There is also an art museum and, because of the strategic importance of the island, there are forts including ancient castles and German bunkers built in World War Two, when the Germans occupied the Channel Islands.
