Splash Out on a British Holiday Cottage With a Pool!
Here is a choice selection of UK holiday cottages with swimming pools. Whether heated or unheated, indoors or outdoors, shared or private, dive in here to find a British holiday cottage with a pool that would be perfect for your holiday. Some holiday lets such as farm cottages have a communal or shared-use pools while others have pools for exclusive use by guests.
Staying in a self-catering holiday home with its own indoor swimming pool is not only great fun for families. it also offers an invaluable wet weather or out of season appeal, with heated indoor pools being usable all year round. In summer, relax by the poolside on a sun bed while the children splash around, or use your pool for some healthy exercise, swimming a few laps to work off all those calories acquired at a poolside BBQ. Do not forget to pack your pool towels and flippers! That being said, many cottages with pools have a collection of inflatable toys or buoyancy aids just waiting to be used. It's a good idea to ask the owners about this when booking.
In winter, a cottage with an indoor heated swimming pool is just what is needed to create a memorable weekend break for families or friends. Do ask the owner to confirm that their holiday cottage comes with exclusive / private use of a pool, or whether it is a communal / shared pool. Don't wait until you arrive! NB: Shared pools can be a great way for children to meet and make holiday friends.

Use the contact information provided in each listing to e-mail or phone the owner - or just visit its website using the 'Visit Website' button on their advert. For example, ask if pool towels are provided or whether guests need to bring their own pool towels. Ask also if things such as buoyancy aids, water wings or airbeds are also available to save you some unnecessary packing.
While pool owners will try to keep their pool open for as long as possible, outdoor pools in the UK, even heated pools are not generally available all year round. So, before you book, do check with the owner that the pool in your holiday cottage will be available for your use during your stay.
Finally, and this is important if you have elderly or very young people in your party, how easy is it to get out? Are the ladders, 'Roman Steps' or will you just have to heave yourself out unaided - not good unless it is a 'skimmer' pool where the water level is equal to the edge of the pool. Remember also to check that the pool is secure and that little children won't be able to access it without an adult to open poolside entrance doors or gates. By booking directly with the owner, you can reassure yourself that the pool facilities are exactly what you need before confirming your reservation.
