UK Cottages With Pools: Take the Plunge!

Discover the delight of self-catering in holiday homes with a pool—an ideal choice for families, promising both enjoyment and year-round allure, thanks to heated indoor pools. Summer invites you to relax poolside or engage in energetic laps, countering the calories from poolside BBQs. Remember to pack your pool essentials and inquire with the owners about inflatable toys or buoyancy aids available for you to use.

Winter transforms those cottages with indoor pools into perfect havens for a memorable break with family or friends. Verify with the owner whether the holiday cottage grants exclusive/private or communal/shared access to a pool. Clarify details before arrival; shared pools provide an excellent opportunity for children to meet holiday friends.

To ensure your stay is hassle-free, use the contact information in each holiday cottage listing to contact the owner via email or phone or visit their website using the 'Visit Website' button. Inquire about provisions such as pool towels and accessories like buoyancy aids, water wings, noodles, or airbeds, avoiding unnecessary packing.

While pool owners strive to keep their facilities open as long as possible, note that outdoor pools in the UK, even when heated, are typically unavailable year-round. Before booking, confirm with the owner that the pool will be accessible during your stay.

An essential consideration, especially for parties with elderly or young members, is the ease of pool access. Ascertain whether the pool features 'Roman Steps' or if self-extraction is necessary. This becomes crucial, particularly for 'skimmer' pools where the water level aligns with the pool's edge. Families with children should also verify the security of pool fencing to ensure child safety. Booking directly with the owner ensures you can be happy that the pool facilities align with your needs before finalizing your reservation.

For those contemplating a personal pool purchase, consider a 'busman's holiday'—test your preferences by choosing holiday cottages with a private pool. This experience allows you to assess factors like size, preferred steps, required terracing, and overall usage by your family.
