Our Favourite Holiday Cottages with Indoor Pools & Games Rooms




Here at Big Cottages, we believe holidays should always be filled with fun, laughter, and happy memories. Which is why we’ve got an excellent selection of large cottages with heated indoor swimming pools and games rooms. Entertaining a large crowd is easy when you rent a holiday cottage with a swimming pool! Whether you are a 'lounger' or a 'plunger', a pool is a great place for everyone to gather together for relaxation and fun! And while we’d like to say that an indoor pool and games room are great for keeping the kids entertained, we know that adults are just as likely to get stuck in!


Many places with an indoor swimming pool also have other facilities onsite to keep the whole family entertained, even if they don't swim! If you're travelling in the summer heat or are expecting nice weather, make sure to book somewhere with a private garden, tennis court or children's play area. Just remind everyone to pack their swimming costume ready for a trip to the steam room or, if you're lucky enough to book luxury accommodation with hot tubs, a dip in the outdoor hot tub. 


Don’t worry about the weather either as we have BBQ lodges and cottages with indoor heated swimming pools, private outdoor swimming pools and many have a private hot tub too. Likewise, games rooms are ideal for those rainy days away. Snooker, table tennis, table football and pool tables are just a few of the firm favourites enjoyed by guests of our cottages. That’s before we even mention our luxury cottages and our pet-friendly holiday cottages with indoor and outdoor pools! Check out our properties with a tennis court onsite or golf course nearby. If you are looking for relaxation why not browse our large holiday cottages with a hot tub?


Our self-catering holiday homes with a private indoor swimming pool aren’t the only reason why guests return to us, time and time again. Whether you’re planning a family holiday or large group getaway, our friendly team would love to help. We know the UK like the back of our hand and our best price guarantee means you don’t need to worry about breaking the bank either.


Looking for self-catering accommodation somewhere in particular?


This season, instead of heading abroad and tackling long airport queues, why not stay closer to home and experience everything the UK and its Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty have to offer? For starters, there’s something for every holiday maker - whether you’re travelling with friends, family, your better half or even alone. For sandy beaches, look no further than destinations along the South West Coast Path including Cornwall and Devon, or Wales to enjoy its stunning countryside. Those in search of a city break won’t go wrong with Edinburgh, Newcastle or Liverpool. And if you want to explore award-winning national parks, head to the Lakes or Peak District National Park.


Whether you're celebrating a big birthday, are toasting your mate's last night of freedom or simply get away every year as a large group, there's plenty of locations in the UK that won't disappoint - as well as a myriad of luxurious entertainment cottages to suit. Take a peek at our favourite destinations to book a cottage with an indoor swimming pool and games room below...




  • Do holiday cottages provide towels?
    Most holiday cottages with swimming pools will provide enough towels for each guest to use in the bathroom, as well as separate beach towels to use around the private indoor pool. However, we always recommend checking the individual listing for your perfect holiday cottage before booking. You won't want to be caught short, especially if you're visiting somewhere with an outdoor swimming pool in the winter. That run back inside can be cold!
  • Can I take my own games for the swimming pool?
    Absolutely! If you have a particular game you like to play in the pool, like water polo or volleyball, you're welcome to bring your own equipment as long as they don't cause any damage to the private pool. Most owners will also have on site facilities such as floaties or inflatable beach balls, but if having access to these items are particularly important to you, it's best to check with the property manager before booking.
  • How can I choose between your holiday cottages with indoor pool? 
    The age-old question! It can be incredibly tricky to choose a holiday home when there are so many in our large selection to choose from. In our experience, it's best to pick the location first. So do you want somewhere with lots to do in the surrounding countryside? If so, a national park is your best bet. Or if you like the hustle and bustle, pick a place with direct access to charming towns. Once you've chosen the destination, have a look at the properties that can cater for the whole family or travel group. There's no point falling in love with self-catering cottages if they don't have enough space, even if you can already picture yourself relaxing in the heated swimming pool! Finally, have a look through the pictures and read the reviews to make sure your holiday home has all those must have facilities including, of course, private swimming pools, for that added bonus.
