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 indoor swimming pools and games rooms. We’d like to say that these are great for keeping the kids entertained - but we know that the adults of the group are just as likely to get stuck in!


We get it - the weather isn’t always so great here in Old Blighty at times. Which is why our cottages with indoor heated swimming pools are the perfect choice for those who don’t want to compromise on luxury! Likewise, games rooms are ideal for those rainy days away. Snooker, table tennis and table football are just a few of the firm favourites enjoyed by guests of our cottages.


When it comes to choosing cottages with an indoor pool - we’ve all got something different in mind. Maybe you’re happy with a cosy cottage complete with a sheltered hot tub? Or perhaps you’re looking to go all out with a luxury holiday at a majestic country house with a tennis court, sauna and gym?! Whatever you’re planning, you can rest assured that our team is on hand to help you choose the perfect family holiday.


Best locations to stay 

Not sure where you’d like to go? Here are our top five suggestions for large holiday homes with pools and games rooms in the UK. 

Peak District

Best for: A quiet holiday enjoying the great British countryside


The gorgeous Peak District is popular with all kinds of visitors; nature lovers, mountain walkers and even those who just want a quiet break in the countryside.  With acres of gorgeous woodlands and hillside, it’s impossible not to relax here! What’s more, it’s also home to plenty of spacious holiday cottages with on-site facilities such as swimming pools and hot tubs.


Best for: A traditional seaside holiday with the famil


There’s a reason why seaside holidays are so popular. Warm beach days, ice creams along the pier and searching rock pools for shrimps and crabs. If any of these descriptions bring back happy memories - then maybe it’s time to book a trip to sunny Cornwall. This southern county boasts its own subtropical microclimate, making it very popular with beach-goers and sun-seekers.

North Yorkshire

Best for: A walking holiday with groups of friends (or your dog)


North Yorkshire is yet another beautiful region of the UK. With its charming villages and wide expanses of moorland and countryside, it’s a wonderful place to relax and escape the daily bustle. How about a cosy barn conversion in the North York Moors? You can even select dog-friendly properties with enclosed gardens for a holiday with the whole family!


Best for: A peaceful holiday by the lakes to recharge your batteries


Home to the glorious Lake District National Park, Cumbria invites you to kick back and relax from the moment you arrive. With plenty of award-winning restaurants and not to mention its glorious lakes, there’s plenty to see and do here. How about a scenic boat ride along Lake Windermere? Or perhaps a challenging hike up to the summit of Haystacks is more your thing...


Best for: A holiday by the coast or tucked away in the countryside


Retreat to a cosy country cottage in the beautiful surroundings of Norfolk. Or, choose a beachside home on by the sandy shores of Great Yarmouth. One of the best things about this county is that the coast and countryside are never too far away from one another, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Be sure to take a walk along the stunning Norfolk Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty well-deserving of its title.
