After a long day walking the coastal paths of Devon or a day spent on a sandy beach at play in the salty sea, what better than a dip in a pool at sunset? The warmth of a summer’s day remaining as you slip into the swimming pool to wash away the holiday activity of the day. Choose one of our Premier cottages in Devon with a pool and you can do just that, any day of your break.
As parents, you won’t forget the joy of your children’s shrieks when you let them know you’ve booked a holiday cottage with a swimming pool. It will take you back to your own childhood and holidays spending hours in and out of the pool, laughing, splashing and diving with brothers and sisters, making new friends, turning brown as berries.
As long as your children are strong swimmers, a swimming pool can be a great childminder, keeping the kids entertained for hours on end. It’s also an opportunity for you have some holiday fun, return to your childhood with them, playing water polo, games of tag or for the more competitive family, swimming races. All quality family time spent together that the children will thank you for and remember forever.
For the more committed, the health benefits of exercising in your holiday cottage with a swimming pool, are numerous. We holiday to escape the stress and strains of day-to-day life, now more than ever. Swimming is well known as a low impact activity that exercises every part of the body, including the mind. The feeling of freedom when floating free in water destresses us while swimming lengths of a pool boosts blood flow, endorphins (feel good hormones) and helps us burn calories.
While we’d like to say the sun always shines in Devon, the UK’s climate isn’t always that predictable. An indoor swimming pool can also salvage a holiday when the weather takes a turn for the worst. While swimming in an outdoor pool in the rain will also give you a holiday experience to remember.
Choose a luxury cottage in Devon with a pool for the family or for your own health and wellbeing and you won’t regret it.
