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.
