It is becoming more and more commonplace for holiday cottages to provide access to a private swimming pool. Whether they are indoor pools or outdoor pools, for people especially with families this can give enormous added value to a holiday. It is probable that more of the properties providing pools are to be found in the South of England but there are also properties in the North with indoor pools.
Shared and private pools
In most cases the swimming pool with be shared with several properties within a complex or as part of a leisure centre but in some it is possible to rent a luxury self catering cottage with its own private pool facility. There are pro’s and cons to each, but the choice is up to you - prepare to pay a bit more if you going to have a swimming pool to yourself - but this upgrade is always worth it.
Indoors and outdoors
Although the weather in this country can be temperamental at times (to say the least) when the sun does shine it can feel like you truly are in the South of France, just minus the swimming pool. After reading a book in the sun, slipping into an outdoor pool and relaxing in the fresh air is the perfect way to let the stress melt away on holiday. Or even in winter, an indoor pool means you could start the day with a refreshing swim, or have some energetic play with the kids when the weather outside is no fun.
