Property above: Trecobben, Cornwall (Sleeps 6 people).
A private swimming pool can be the making of a family holiday: perhaps an unaccustomed luxury, always a focus of fun and certainly a pleasant way to work off some energy.
If you are looking for cottages with pools then you're in luck; we have scoured the country from Devon to the Lake District, Wales to Norfolk, looking for the very best! We list everything from seaside cottages in Cornwall to romantic Scottish cabins, all with private swimming pools.
To search by size, simply type your destination into the search box above, and then on the next page you can filter by how many a cottage sleeps.
If you can't find a cottage with a private pool to suit, perhaps a cottage with a shared pool would be acceptable? We have a great selection of holiday cottages that share a swimming pool. Many of these are found in groups or complexes, and often offer further facilities, such as tennis courts, children's play areas and so on.
If a private pool is important to you, we always recommend that you confirm that the pool will be for your private and exclusive use before booking. To double check, please phone our Cottages information line on 0845 268 1307 (or +44 1282 845994 if calling from outside of the UK).
