Just imagine the pool parties you could have here. Nestled in the Berkshire countryside between the picturesque villages of Marlow and Bray, Novello House is a six-bedroom family estate with bags of period character. There’s a home gym, cinema room and tennis court – but the star of the show is that enormous swimming pool and the surrounding patio area. Dine al fresco before taking a dip. What more could you want? Available through Hamptons for £3,350,000

Avon Court, Stratford-upon-Avon

swimming pool

Stratford-upon-Avon was Shakespeare’s hometown, and this country estate has an indoor pool that feels very Romeo & Juliet inspired. Not only is there a stone balcony overhanging the water, but it is surrounded by climbing vines and terracotta walls that exude Italianate, Veronese chic. Elsewhere in the house you’ll find five grand bedrooms, high ceilings and elegant drawing rooms. And there’s more balconies, from which you can gaze down over the landscaped gardens and river beyond. Available through Hamptons for £3,950,000

Pelham Street, South Kensington, London

More of a city slicker than a country bum? Doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your own private pool. This stylish five-bedroom South Kensington home oozes cool; everything from the open plan kitchen to the home cinema is decked out with ultramodern appliances. Descend to the basement and you’ll find a home gym and adjoining pool with mirrored walls. But the best part is that you can gaze down at your subterranean swimming spot through the glass floor of the home office. Very Bond villain. Available through Knight Frank for £7,950,000

Crockham Hill, Edenbridge, Kent

swimming pool

This magnificent country estate is a feast for the eyes. With elegant tiered gardens, seven grand bedrooms and period features throughout it’s the sort of manor you’d expect to find in a Jane Austen adaption. Alongside all this splendour you’ll also find a lovely family pool, complete with rockery and a waterfall feature that’s perfect for hot summers days. Available through Knight Frank for £7,500,000

Sol de Mallorca, Mallorca

swimming pool

It’s all well and good having a pool in the UK – but for an outdoor pool you can use year-round, it’s worth considering a sunnier location. Enter this dreamlike villa in Sol de Mallorca. It’s got four bedrooms, modern open plan living spaces and a roof terrace. Most importantly, there’s a big outdoor swimming pool surrounded by a swanky Balinese lounge area and Mediterranean gardens. Dine al fresco and live your Balearic fantasy. Available through Sotherby’s International for €2,850,000

Westbrook Hall, Bognor Road, Broadbridge Heath, Horsham, West Sussex

swimming pool

Dating from the 17th Century, this magnificent Grade II listed house has all the trappings of a traditional Georgian home. Original fireplaces, exposed beams and soaring ceilings have been preserved indoors, but freshly painted walls and updated furnishings give the house a modern feel. Meanwhile, the large south facing pool – partly walled in a sectioned off part of the grounds – is a fantastic suntrap. You’ll be hard pushed to find a better sunbathing spot for hot summer days. Available through Knight Frank for £3,295,000

St Josephs Hall, Storrington, West Sussex

swimming pool

For a period home with a modern pool, look no further than St Joseph’s Hall. A fantastic example of an Arts and Crafts home, this eight bedroom manor blends the old and the new; original fireplaces sit in freshly decorated drawing rooms, and in the traditional landscaped grounds you’ll find an ultramodern pool house that looks like it belongs on a luxury resort. Gaze out at the grounds while you swim through floor to ceiling glass walls. Very stylish. Available through Hamptons for £5,950,000

Mahon, Menorca

Just outside Menorca’s vibrant capital, this sprawling villa is built in the traditional Balearic style. The terracotta arches, painted tiles and open plan living spaces are full of quaint rustic charm. Meanwhile, the large sun patios and glistening swimming pool – both with views over the surrounding countryside – make this the ultimate summer bolthole to lay back and relax in. Available through Sotherby’s International for  €1,495,000

Westbourne Grove Mews, London

2 Westbourne Grove

Unassuming from the outside, this mews property opens up to a luxurious, architecturally-designed space with no expenses spared.

Downstairs, you can find a gym and fitness suite which opens onto the indoor pool – an impressive 11 metres – and jacuzzi. Available through Hamptons for £9.5m

Shere Road, West Horsley, Surrey

This Surrey home may be the best swimming pool house of all, for one simple reason: it also has a slide. Surrounded by over 10 acres of grounds, this seven-bedroom home is perfect for family life with a big kitchen, cosy living room and gym. There’s a stable block tucked away on the grounds, but the piece-de-resistance is that turquoise pool. Climb the poolside ladder and slide straight into summer fun.
