Splash Out on a Holiday Cottage With a Pool!
Here’s a choice selection of holiday cottages with swimming pools in all corners of the UK: Whether heated or unheated, indoors or outdoors, shared or private, dive in here to find a 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 pool while others have pools for exclusive use by guests. Staying in a self-catering holiday with its own indoor pool is not only great fun for families, it also offers an invaluable wet weather alternative, 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, putting in a few laps to work off all those lovely poolside BBQ calories. Don’t forget to pack your pool towels and flippers! 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.

Want to know more about the swimming pool at a holiday cottage? They come in all shapes and sizes. Some will be heated, some under cover making them usable for bathing all year round. Sizes range from small plunge pools to up to 25m - perfect for lap swimming. Pools in luxury cottages will often have underwater lighting allowing you to swim on balmy summer evenings. What you get around your holiday cottage’s pool is almost as important as the pool itself. Pools aren't just for swimming in, they make a great poolside location for a BBQ, sunbathing or just relaxing surrounded by aromas from nearby shrubs and flowers such as lavender. Check that the pool has a nice terrace with sun loungers - and ideally is placed to catch the sun in the afternoon (which will help warm the water) Ideally there should be a poolside shower allowing you to rinse off (suntan before your dip and the smell of chlorine after your swim).
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. 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. By booking directly with the owner, you can reassure yourself that the pool facilities are exactly what you need before confirming your reservation. 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.
