Go Swimming with Farm Stay!

A swimming pool is frequently top of the wishlist for kids and adults alike when looking for the perfect summer holiday destination. More and more farmers who have already diversified into tourism are including pools as another way to attract guests, especially during the Great British summertime.

Rural holiday specialists Farm Stay UK has dozens of countryside gems across the UK that come complete with their own swim facilities. Not only that, many also offer a real insight into life on the farm with on-site experiences like animal feeding and farm tours on offer,  and an emphasis on enjoying local food and drink straight from farm to fork.

All of the farmstays with a pool can be easily found using a specific search filter on the website. Here’s Farm Stay’s shortlist of five fantastic options complete with swimming pool around the country...
