Cottages with Private Pools

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. We’ve also recently expanded our selection to include French cottages with pools.

To search by size, simply type your destination into the search box above. On the next page you can then filter by size and facilities.

If a private pool is important to you, we recommend confirming that it will be for exclusive use before booking. You can do this by phoning our Cottages information line on 0345 268 1307 (or +44 1282 845994 if calling from outside of the UK).
