Going on holiday is all about enjoying the things that you perhaps don’t have access to in your everyday life. That of course can refer to sights and attractions, beautiful walks, beaches and rural tranquillity. But it can also be features within your holiday cottage itself. Few things say luxury like a house with a swimming pool, and when combined with an idyllic cottage in a fine setting, the result can be truly relaxing and exhilarating in equal measure. You might pay a little more for a cottage with pool, but the extra relaxation benefits can be well worth it. Here we take a look at a number of attractive cottages with pools.

Great Coastal Locations
That bastion of all things geographical, Ordnance Survey, estimates that the UK’s coastline stretches for an astonishing 11,073 miles (17,820 km). If you add in the larger islands (such as the Isle of Wight and the Isle of Man), that number goes up to nearly 19,500 miles. Not only is it a long coastline, but according to the Hausdorff dimension (that measures the ‘wiggliness’ of a coastline – no, really), it scores an impressive 1.25, which is, apparently, pretty wiggly.
