Wolsey Lodges with Pools
25 June 2019
Having your own swimming pool at home is often way too much hassle.
There's an ideal solution though. Let others do the work. Several Wolsey Lodges have swimming pools: visit in summer and you can take full advantage. Best of all, the Lodge owners are invariably as intensely proud of their pool as they are of their house, garden, and cuisine, and are only too delighted to see guests making use of their facilities.
Old Whyly - East Sussex
The banner photo shows the pool at Old Whyly, a Wolsey Lodge near Glyndebourne in the heart of East Sussex.
With a pool house cloaked in wisteria and sheltering walls trapping the heat of the sun, the pool at Old Whyly matches the elegance of the grounds, which many guests have compared to Sissinghurst. Old Whyly is very much in the forefront of the new wave of B&Bs: ultimately elegant and refined, offering a new level of sophistication and style.
The house itself is redolent with history, with foundations dating back a thousand years, and walls that could tell swashbuckling tales of the Royalist wars of the 16th century. This all adds to the pleasure of Old Whyly's very contemporary comforts.
