Finally it looks like summer is here and we can look forward to plenty more hot, sunny weekends (fingers crossed), so how do you fancy a dip in an outdoor pool before or after your Saturday supper or Sunday lunch? Or perhaps wet your toes after a jug of Pimms?

Badgers Mount restaurant and hotel in Elmesthorpe, Leicestershire, has an outdoor heated swimming pool set within their beautiful landscaped gardens, which they open to restaurant and bar customers as well as hotel guests.

Make a splash, then relax on the terrace with views over the Leicestershire countryside. Unwind with a cocktail or chilled bottle of Prosecco, then feast on freshly cooked food from their exclusive terrace menu.

They also offer Champagne and Prosecco Afternoon Tea, as well as lunch deals and special steak and burger nights.
