Where to Stay for Cottages with Swimming Pools

We offer a wide range of holiday cottages with swimming pools. Browse through the list below for some of the most popular breaks.

Many more destinations offer private indoor swimming pools in the UK. To find the best one for you, filter your search and prepare for the most relaxing break!

Cottages with Swimming Pools Travel Guide

Before booking your next luxury holiday cottage, it’s best to know everything from when to visit and what to do. Luckily enough, we’ve got you covered! Keep reading to learn more about our private pool cottages and how to make the most out of your getaway!

When to Book a Swimming Pool Cottage

Before booking your holiday cottage with a swimming pool, it’s first important to assess the best time to visit. The weather can impact several aspects of your trip so it’s necessary to plan accordingly.

Luckily enough, there are plenty of cottages with indoor pools, so even if the weather is cold or wet, you can still make the most out of swimming in the comfort of your rental. For properties with outdoor pools, it is best to visit in the summer. Anytime between June and August is the finest time to make the most out of the great outdoors in the UK.

The south of the UK generally displays warmer temperatures in the summer. Places like Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and more are excellent choices for those hoping to make the most out of their swimming pool and other outdoor activities.

What to Do on a Swimming Holiday

Holiday homes with a swimming pool are highly popular and whilst they may come at a premium, they can provide hours of entertainment for the whole family come rain or shine. Having the exclusive use of a private pool to take a dip in before breakfast or at the end of the day is a popular facility, particularly for couples who enjoy a little privacy.

However, the social element that shared facilities can offer for both children and adults alike is a bonus. The opportunity for a little exercise to keep you fit whilst on your break is also perfect for a range of holidaymakers.

Tips for Staying in a Holiday Cottage with a Swimming Pool

Properties with swimming pools are highly sought after so make sure you book in advance. Check with the owner if you have sole or shared use of the swimming facilities and whether there are any time limitations on its use.

Whilst owners may provide towels for use in the cottage, they may not provide them for pool use, so double-check beforehand or take your own. Don’t forget to pack the swimming aids for the little ones and make sure children are supervised at all times when around water.
