Large Family Holidays With Pool Summer 2022 UK

It’s not too late to book your large family holidays with a pool for summer 2022 in the UK. The weather has been cold for the time of year but it’s set to get better so now’s the time to find the perfect large group holiday house with a pool and so much more. Make yourself comfy and check out our availability.

Summer is on its way! We’re told the weather’s picking up and it’s going to be a scorcher so now’s the time to book your large family holidays with a pool for summer in the UK. Beat the traffic and the crowds at the airport with a holiday in Devon this year. We’ve all seen the hoards waiting for flights and heard the news that anyone waiting for their passport might be out of luck. Have none of it – come and stay in sunny Devon instead in a luxury large group holiday house with everything you need to keep you all smiling.

Our group accommodation in Devon has plenty of space and so much more; we’re proud of the top notch facilities we offer – private pools, hot tubs, saunas, games rooms, children’s play areas and cosy BBQ lodges. Add to that a stunning location in the Blackdown Hills AONB with peace and quiet and views that roll on across an unspoilt landscape for miles and that’s all the ingredients for a holiday you’ll always remember.

Have you seen our brand new holiday house for groups? It went live just before Easter and is proving to be very popular – take a look at The Cedars and you’ll see why. This amazing contemporary house has so much going for it and plenty to ensure you have the best holiday ever. 5 ensuite bedrooms sleep 10 guests and there’s room for 2 more at a small extra charge per person. The setting is nice and private, the views are incredible and out on the terrace there’s a swim spa and outdoor table tennis. Get out there, slather on the sun cream, soak up the rays while the steaks sizzle on the BBQ, or have a family pizza party – make your own dough or buy bases and add your toppings of your choice; with the Ooni gas pizza oven it’s a doddle.

Just a few steps from the house there’s an all weather BBQ lodge, the perfect place to cosy up of an evening toasting marshmallows, swapping stories and telling jokes. The children will love the play area and after you’ve watched the most amazing sunset you can sit out by the firepit beneath the stars. That’s what it’s all about, spending time relaxing with the people you love most in the world, moments to cherish. 4 nights in July works out at just £87.50 per person per night for 10 of you – honestly, you wouldn’t get a half decent hotel for that in the summer, plus you’ve got everything all to yourselves. No one else in the swim spa, no having breakfast in a room full of strangers – and certainly no airport queues.

A stay at Wayside or Herons Bank is similarly priced, with both houses having the same level of  luxury facilities. Herons Bank on the edge of the quiet town of Cullompton has an indoor pool and hot tub, a games room, BBQ lodge and play area and it sleeps 14 guests. Wayside is set privately with astonishing views across the Blackdown Hills; this modern country house sleeps 13 and has a covered pool, hot tub, barrel sauna, games room, BBQ lodge and play area.

Foxhill Lodge is available in June, and we know how hot it can be then – it’s not known as ‘flaming June’ for nothing! This gorgeous barn conversion is tucked away on a working farm in the hills and sleeps 10. It has a private hot tub and a play area, as well as use of an outdoor pool that’s got a brilliant hilltop setting with far reaching views; take a dip, climb out and head for the cool of the breeze hut to sip a long cold drink, no one else to bother you, just you and yours. 4 nights in June comes in at £75 per person per night, or if you want to take advantage of our late availability offers, 4 nights in May is just £43.75 each per night.

If you’ve got a birthday or anniversary coming up you don’t need any excuse – a few days away with your nearest and dearest in a luxury group holiday house, all those fantastic features to yourselves. Couldn’t be better! And if there's more of you we have additional accommodation in our Dreamview Shepherds Huts from the beginning of July; each hut sleeps 2 adults, has its own hot tub and firepit and is kitted out to a very high standard - think of it as luxury glamping.

If you haven’t yet booked a summer holiday here’s the perfect opportunity to go for it in style at great prices. But we don’t have a huge amount of availability so don’t dither, you’ll need to act quick. And why not? Life is to be enjoyed after all. Book today and have a brilliant summer holiday to look forward to!
