In some ways we’ve decided to have our cake and eat it too with this week’s instalment of our Summer of Sports coverage. While that may sound like an unconventional approach to sports promotion, after the past few weeks of cycling and tennis, we think you’ve earned and opportunity to take a leisurely dip in a fantastic selection of properties with pools…
Swimming is one of the few sports that’s as active or as relaxing as you want to make it. As such it’s one of the most popular features for those seeking a holiday cottage with unrivalled fun, leisure and active entertainment. The upside of this popularity is that we feature hundreds of holiday cottages with pools; the downside is choosing only five for this blog post. Still, too much choice is one problem we’re sure you can all handle. So if you want to take a look at more properties with pools visit our website for some of the finest in the UK, Ireland, Italy and France.
Tewynn in Mawgan Porth, Newquay
The hardier holidaymaker may favour an outdoor pool to raise the spirits, while those seeking fun often favour frolicking in a heated indoor pool. Tewynn, and its associated holiday properties, ticks both boxes while offering plenty more charms to make for an unforgettable holiday in Cornwall. If you fancy a little wake-up in the morning then there’s a 26ft outdoor heated pool, but if you fancy something a little more leisurely then you can also tackle the 49ft indoor pool with added steam room and sauna. There’s much more to explore and enjoy at this lovely eco-park so we suggest taking a look at the property’s listing on cottages4you, where you can find lots more stunning pics.
The Beeches in Sea Palling
The phrase ‘small but perfectly formed’ could quite easily have been coined to describe the accommodation at The Beeches in Sea Palling. That being said, the comfortable and stylish accommodation sleeps up to six holidaymakers whilst also offering a large garden and its own private indoor heated swimming pool – so it’s anything but cramped, and the options provided are anything but limited! If that doesn’t quell your aquatic desires then you’ll find nearby Great Yarmouth offers plenty more opportunities for indoor and outdoor swimming. Check out the property listing on cottages4you.
Beer Farm in Waterrow, nr. Wiveliscombe
With a name like Beer Farm, you might not expect exercise to be too high on the agenda at this property. The again, like most great holiday properties, it offers more than a few surprises. The first of which is a clean, light and spacious barn conversion that can sleep up to six happy holidaymakers. There are 15 acres of private grounds surrounding the property, so it’s the perfect place for a relaxing woodland amble, but the reason it made it onto this list is for the private heated swimming pool with showers. As you can probably tell, Beer Farm really does accentuate a life of leisure. Check out the property listing on cottages4you.
Château du Treuil in Burie, Charente-Maritime
Château du Treuil offers unrivalled comfort to such an extent that it probably wouldn’t be the first place an Olympian would go to train for the games. However, if someone was looking for somewhere to celebrate a gold medal then there are few better locations! Alongside the 18th-century château, standing in 2.7 hectares of walled grounds in an idyllic peaceful setting of imposing trees with a large formal garden with statues, there’s the superb mosaic tiled swimming pool with a lovely covered terrace.

Villa Les Chênes in Montauroux, nr. Grasse, Var
Located on France’s south coast, Villa Les Chênes offers a stunning detached stone villa and large private grounds with oak trees, olive groves and shaded grassy areas to escape the heat. It also offers an outdoor infinity pool set in rocks and a terrace with a feature fountain. Yet despite being large enough to accommodate up to 12 contented holidaymakers, perhaps the biggest attraction is the fact you have the entire French Riviera to explore just a short distance from the property!
