Holiday Homes With A Private Indoor Pool

Booking a large group holiday is easy with Group Stays; our self catering accommodation for big groups has everything you need whether you want to get away for a family holiday, a reunion of friends, a hen weekend, celebration or corporate break. You can relax because you know that everyone is going to be comfortable and that there’s something to keep everyone entertained. Especially popular are our large holiday homes with a private indoor pool because that means you don’t need to think about the weather and there’s year round fun for all ages.

Not only that, we have big holiday cottages and houses with hot tubs saunas, games rooms, BBQ lodges, and play equipment for younger children; hot tubs are often under cover, so again, you can use them come rain or shine. Most of our luxury properties are tucked away in private rural locations surrounded by beautiful countryside in Somerset, Devon, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, so you really can unwind and relax together whether you prefer an English country cottage, a big country house, a timber-clad holiday lodge, a rambling old farmhouse, or one of our fabulous barn conversions.

Take a look at our large group holiday houses in Somerset with an indoor pool; at the foot of the Quantock Hills AONB is The Granary, which sleeps 18+6  (that means there's room for 6 more at an extra charge per person) and has heaps of space, a games area, BBQ lodge, hot tub and an integral indoor pool. In fact, most our indoor pools can be accessed from inside the house, so you don’t even have to go outside if you fancy a swim – the perfect solution to having fun on a rainy day. Also close to the Quantocks are 5 luxury timber-clad lodges, each set privately and each having its own private pool – see Thorncombe, Foxcombe, Cockercombe, Crowcombe and Ramscombe. These lodges sleep 12-14 people but if there are more of you, you can book Crowcombe and Thorncombe together to sleep up to 26, or Ramscombe and Cockercombe to sleep 28.

Each in its own private 2 acre plot in a picturesque valley not far from Wellington, Ham Bottom and Fuzzy Orchard are snazzy and stylish holiday lodges, each with an indoor pool, sauna, hot tub that can be covered, games room, BBQ lodge and play equipment – honestly, what more could you want! Not far away is Jurston Barn which is very popular for hen weekends; it sleeps 12 and has a hot tub and indoor pool.

Flossy Brook has grounds of an acre with a play area and trampoline, on the edge of a peaceful village on the Blackdown Hills; there’s snooze space for 12 and there’s an in-house indoor heated pool. A few miles away is Holemoor Stables, on a private estate amidst the glorious South Somerset countryside; there’s room for 18 sleepy heads, a games room and of course, an indoor pool to play in. Near Taunton we have Pound Farm, a charming old farmstead that sleeps 18+3 and has been renovated to very high standards with barns and outbuildings put to good use as extra sleeping quarters, a sauna and indoor swimming pool.

How does the idea of your own private spa appeal? Great for corporate hospitality or just to get away and recharge your flagging batteries!  As well as the indoor pool, Henfield Barn (sleeps 15) near Bristol has a hot tub, steam room and sauna; similar to Walnut Arbour on the tranquil Somerset Levels, which sleeps 12+2, and not far away is Coat Barn with an indoor pool, games room and beds for 18. Beaverbrook 20 is a stunningly transformed barn sleeping, yep, 20; and wow, talk about something for everyone! Not just an indoor spa hall with a heated pool, sunken hot tub and sauna, but also a huge games room, BBQ lodge and play train! And the good news is that it can also be booked for groups of up to 30 (See Beaverbrook 30).

Millgrove House sleeps 12 and is just outside the Somerset county town of Taunton, in secluded grounds with a covered pool, hot tub and play area. This large group holiday home sleeps 12 and also has pool table and air hockey.

Go down to Devon and lord it up at Berry House, a very handsome country house for 16 with an indoor pool and games room, and large grounds where red deer can sometimes be seen feeding when they come down from the hills of Exmoor National Park. Also in Devon, snuggled in the folds of the scenic Blackdown Hills are Culmbridge House for 12+2 with an indoor pool, sauna, games area and BBQ lodge, and Wayside, which sleeps 13 and has a covered pool, hot tub, sauna, games room and BBQ lodge. New for May 2019 is Shires, a glamorous conversion of an old wagon shed that sleeps 12+2 and has an amazing spa hall with pool, hot tub and sauna, a games room and cinema room – and what’s more it’s completely geared up to be access friendly, with level flooring throughout the ground floor, a lift up to the south facing terrace, and a hoist that can be used in the spa hall.

In Gloucestershire on the edge of the Forest of Dean are Whitehaven and Viney Hill Country House. Whitehaven sleeps 12 and besides the big indoor pool, there’s play equipment, a pool table and table football. Viney Hill Country House sleeps 16+2 and has a covered pool, games room, play area and BBQ lodge; both of these fantastic large group holiday homes are set amidst miles and miles of inspiring countryside.
