it’s likely that many of us will have gotten used to the idea of enjoying a good swim while on holiday, whether from the beach or in a holiday cottage with a private pool in its sun-drenched garden. 

Come the onset shorter evenings with the arrival of autumn and winter, there’s no reason to assume that all thoughts of swimming on holiday need to be put aside until next summer. There are plenty of holiday cottages with private indoor pools all over the UK.

Why not plan a weekend break with a group of friends or with another family to chase away the winter blues by booking a large holiday cottage with a private indoor pool.

We’ve selected our favourite top ten holiday homes that offer exclusive use of an indoor heated pool for large groups of 10 or more guests. Many are in areas nicely suited for walking holidays, making the prospect of a weekend away a nice healthy one, and who cares about the weather!

From remote corners of the UK in the Highlands of Scotland and The Gower Peninsula to West Country cottages in Devon and Cornwall (where walks along deserted beaches can be added to the plan), consider one of these cottages for a luxury out of season holiday where you can make a bit of a splash with friends and family.
