Searches for holiday homes with pools are up by 250% right now, so here are the very best

There is so much of the UK many of us are yet to explore – from the hidden beaches of Cornwall to the quaint villages of The Cotswolds – so the postponement of splashing around in the Med might not be such a bad thing.

And since the government has announced the restart of domestic tourism on 4th July, a mental health-boosting trip away could be just around the corner.

Welcome: our edit of the best holiday homes in the UK with pools. ‘Cos if we’re going to ditch our white-washed Grecian villa for a property that’s closer to home, we may as well choose one that’s as reminiscent of our usual summer hideaway as possible.

On the hunt for a holiday home with a pool? Take a look at our complete guide to the most chic holiday homes with pools in the UK, which have available dates in July, August and September 2020.

Although some European countries are beginning to open their borders to Brits – with post-July “travel corridors” a possibility – the prospect of a summer holiday abroad this year still doesn’t fill us with excitement. The very thought of stepping foot in an airport right now is enough to fill many of us with dread, and actually? We’d kind of got used to the idea of an idyllic weekend break here on home soil. Country walks, sea air and fish and chips by the coast make for a pretty dreamy post-lockdown holiday. Heatwave or not.

We’ve found a seaside cottage with a pool on Airbnb, smack bang in the middle of a nature reserve in Hampshire and with plenty of availability in September, as well as a Grade II-listed converted windmill in Norfolk with space for 15 guests and availability in July, August and September.

If it’s an intimate hen-do destination you’re on the hunt for, consider this country home in Buckinghamshire which has manicured gardens, a heated swimming pool and availability in August, September and beyond. Moving away from Airbnb, Skyes Holiday Cottages has plenty on offer (like this Lincolnshire farmhouse), as does Snaptrip.
