The best pools in the UK??

The UK is a beautiful place. We lived there for many years. The history, the countryside and the diversity of the people all combine to make it a singular place – like no other place. But, a recent article by the UK’s Independent newspaper happily asked the question which are the best UK hotels with swimming pools?

Again, having lived there, this is the first time that I’ve been presented this statement. At first, I thought it was a joke: let’s face it, it rain a lot in the UK. And, being so far in the north of the planet, it can really be a crap shoot to plan a day out at the pool. (Just to calm those of you who might be upset by this train of thought, yes the summers in the UK can be glorious: sunny, not too hot and bestowed with some of the most fluorescent greens you will ever see in the trees, the grass and the fields.) It can be a wonderful place.

So, again, courtesy of the Independent, let’s have a look at a few of the noteworthy. Their experts have carefully curated the best hotels with swimming pools in the UK – whether you’re booking a couples or friends spa break or travelling with children. Find hotels all over the UK, including the South East, Cornwall, Wales, the Lake District, Scotland and the Highlands.
