Ask any child (or often adult) what they want on their holiday and they’ll likely say a swimming pool, but most wouldn’t immediately associate it with a farm stay in the British countryside…
Most of us love water and access to a private swimming pool is high on many a list as part of the perfect family break. So why not ‘take the plunge’ and book your UK staycation with a pool on a working farm?
Indoor, outdoor, private or shared…
Sometimes pools can be provided solely for your own personal use, other times they might be shared with other holiday makers but having easy access to a heated, indoor pool means the kids and grown-ups can have hours of fun and entertainment right on the doorstep.
Farm Stay UK has listings for bed and breakfasts, glamping, self-catering and other types of holiday venues with a swimming pool.
While there are plenty of summer hot spots with an outdoor pool or infinity pool to take in the stunning countryside views, many farm stays offer year-round poolside relaxation with an indoor swimming pool on site.
Parents can sit by the poolside while the kids burn off lots of energy in the water, safe in the knowledge their accommodation is close by.
You could even organise your own swimming gala for all the family!
The benefits of having a swimming pool on your Farm Stay holiday
Having such a great facility means it is a treat for everyone. Do a few lengths before breakfast, ready for a farm fresh breakfast, or maybe just take cooling dip if the weather is hot, hot, hot!
Swimming is also a great way to improve fitness with little or no impact on body joints so is perfect for the whole family. Have a swim and most of us are ravenous afterwards.
Luxury cottages, superb glamping, cosy B&Bs dotted in the heart of our wonderful countryside are guaranteed with Farm Stay UK.
Families can have a rural staycation and the added bonus of a swimming pool too!
