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 cottages with a pool such as farm cottages have a communal or shared-use pool while others have private pools for guests' exclusive use.
Staying in a self-catering holiday home with an indoor swimming pool is not only great fun for families. It also offers 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 sunbed 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, cottages with an indoor heated swimming pool offer just what is needed to create a memorable weekend break for families or friends. Do ask the owner to confirm whether their holiday cottage comes with exclusive/private use of a pool or a communal/shared pool. Don't wait until you arrive! NB: Shared pools can be an excellent way for children to meet and make holiday friends.

Use the contact information provided in each cottage 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.
If you are considering whether to buy your own swimming pool, book a holiday cottage with a private pool for a week and literally, try before you buy. It will help you decide what size you need, what kind of steps you prefer, and how much terracing you need around it. You'll also discover whether you and your family will use it or not. It's the perfect way to go shopping!
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.
