games room by a pool

When you browse holiday cottages with Holiday Cottage Compare, one of the features you can search for is to show only holiday cottages with games room facilities on site, such as a pool table, snooker table or dart board.

You'll find games room on the Sports Facilities filter list - just tick the box to choose from over 600 holiday cottages with games room access, whether it's a private games room or shared with other holidaymakers.

If you specifically want a snooker table or a dart board, we have options for those too - and you can tick as many as you want for a single set of results.

Why we love holiday cottages with games rooms

A good games room is a great breakout space when you want to spend some time together as a family - and an extra room for some of you to escape to if you need some time apart, too!

Our holiday cottages with games rooms range from a private side room with a dart board or pool table, to cottages on holiday home and spa complexes with access to indoor sports facilities included in your rent.

In some of the latter cases, you can even book some extra coaching classes for an additional fee either ahead of time or on arrival - just check the full description on the listing to see if classes are available.

Adult games room holiday cottages

A pool table isn't just for the kids - and our 400+ holiday cottages with snooker tables definitely suit fully grown adults who can reach across the table.

Of course when you have a private games room attached to your holiday cottage, there's no closing time, so if you want to play pool, snooker or darts until dawn, that's your own free choice.

For the kids, a holiday cottage with a shared games room can be a great option, as it allows them to meet and socialise with other people their own age and even engage in some friendly competition over the pool table.

If you want to book a holiday cottage with games room for a family getaway, we would suggest using the options under 'Child Friendly' to filter the results - you'll see games room listed there too, as well as swimming pools, swings and play areas.

This option just means that you'll get results that are definitely suitable for younger people and should help to make sure all of the listed holiday cottages can accommodate the whole family.

Rainy day games rooms

As much as we would love to be able to control the weather, sometimes the summertime can throw an unexpectedly rainy day at you, while at other times of year, wet weather might be expected anyway.

Indoor games rooms make holiday cottages more versatile and give you some leisure space that's shielded from the elements - and again, it's an extra room to escape to so everyone is not in the same place when it's too wet to go outside.

Just check the description to find out exactly what games are available - whether it's a full-sized snooker table in a room with plenty of cue clearance, pub games like a pool table or dart board, or even games like table tennis and table football.

Other sports facilities

Finally, it's worth noting that our holiday cottages with games rooms are by no means the only way to get access to some sports facilities during your stay.

You'll see the other filters listed in the search options too - from indoor and outdoor swimming pools, to tennis courts and  nearby golf courses, croquet lawns, and a secure place to park your bicycle, so that you can book your perfect holiday cottage with Holiday Cottage Compare on your own terms.
