Lake District cottages with pools
Use of a swimming pool is a very nice facility to have on holiday, even if it is only used a few times during the week. Many cottage complexes have a communal pool or leisure centre for their guests. These are very well maintained and differ from public swimming pools in the no lifeguards are present, parents have to supervise their own children.
Certain independent holiday cottage owners sometimes sign up for membership of a swimming pool and spa that is then available to their guests.
A self-catering holiday in the Lake District is wonderful whether there is a pool or not. The countryside and the lakes are the big attraction in Cumbria and it isn't just a national park for outdoor types, there is plenty to see and do for all ages. Take Lake Windermere for example, there are boat trips across the lake from Lakeside in the south to Ambleside in the north via Bowness-on-Windermere. There are plenty of attractions at these three points that include boating, yachting, eateries galore and a steam train at Lakeside.
Having a car makes a big difference in how much of the Lake District people can see on holiday and most appreciate exploring the rural lanes and admiring the fantastic scenery.
The Lake District is superb for active outdoor pursuits such as cycling, fishing, boating and other watersports but there are also sedate fun things to do on the lakes. The steam Gondola at Coniston is something that bit different and provides a genteel tour of the lake. The olde worlde pubs in the Lake District deserve a special mention and are much appreciated after a long walk or drive. Their ancient blackened timbers and dark interiors, often with a roaring open fire have provided tourists to the Lake District with centuries of hospitality.
Do book that holiday cottage with a swimming pool in the Lake District, you'll have a great time in splendid surroundings.
