The best locations for a hot tub break in Gloucestershire
Officially the most complete Regency town in the whole of Britain, the town of Cheltenham has an abundance of activities and attractions. For starters, it’s home to the Cheltenham Festival every March where people come from all over the world to try their luck on the horse races. The town itself also has a Pump Room, theatre and museums as well as a bustling community feel, day and night. A range of bars and restaurants make it a great place to go in the evening too.
Famous for its honey coloured buildings and picture-perfect village scenes, Bourton-on-the-Water is nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds. As well as plenty of natural beauty, and a lot of luxury holiday homes, this village boasts quaint cafes and tearooms, award-winning pubs and restaurants, independent shops and family-friendly activities including Birdland and The Model Village. There’s also plenty of rolling hills nearby if you want to explore the great outdoors.
A vibrant market town in Gloucestershire, Cirencester’s history dates back to Roman times. Today, visitors can expect a bustling high street packed with shops, pubs, restaurants and activities. You’re also just a few minutes from the beautiful countryside where you’ll find dog friendly walking routes that the whole family can enjoy. For Gloucestershire hot tub breaks, Cirencester is an ideal base.
A small market town in the Cotswolds and often regarded as one of the prettiest, Chipping Campden is the jewel of the Cotswolds. Families, friends and couples come here every year for the countryside adventures and charming town feel. Walkers will enjoy The Cotswold Way which stretches through the town and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants for those who prefer to take it slow. In terms of accommodation, Chipping Campden really does have it all – lodges with hot tubs, log cabins and even luxury barn conversions.
Just a short drive from Cirencester, you’ll find Bibury – a charming Cotswold village. William Morris even described it as the most beautiful village in England, and we can’t disagree. In fact, since then, Fox News and the Huffington Post have said similar things! Days here can be as packed or as peaceful as you like but a trip to the Trout Farm and Arlington Row is a must. The latter is actually the most photographed place in the Cotswolds.

Get dressed up for the day and try your luck at Cheltenham Racecourse – which holds the annual Cheltenham Races every March. Even if you’re not into betting, you’re sure to enjoy the atmosphere as well as the pop-up food and drink stalls on offer. It’s a great day out with friends – whether you’re celebrating an occasion or simply fancy a gettogether.
The Model Village
In the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water, you’ll find the Model Village which was made by skilled craftsmen and features the same Cotswold stone that the village is famous for. It showcases what life in the village was like in the 1930s, when it was built, and it has become a tourist attraction in its own right. In 2013, it was even given Grade II listed status.
Cotswold Water Park
Spanning 42 square miles and home to 180 lakes, the Cotswold Water Park is the place to go if kids and big kids alike want to let off some steam. From watersports to bird watching, golf, cycling and horse riding, there is something for everyone – even those who want to sit back and do nothing. We say, take a picnic and find a spot in one of the parks to make a full day of it. It’s also pet friendly so you can bring your dog!
Hidcote Manor Garden
This activity is one for the photographers or even the Instagrammers. Hidcote Manor Garden is one of the most popular attractions in Chipping Campden. It looks like something out of a fairytale with various flowers, hedges and unusual trees. Not to mention, lots of wildlife that call it home. As well as walking through the maze of nature, there is also a shop and cafe to enjoy.
Bibury Trout Farm
Hear us out on this one. While you might not be interested in how trout are farmed, if you are, Bibury Trout Farm is worth a visit. And, even if you don’t care, the on-site restaurant and cafe is definitely worth visiting. Not just that, but you can even enjoy your own BBQ, catch some fish or play crazy golf! You could take a freshly caught trout back to your accommodation for a delicious dinner too. Now that’s what we call a perfect hot tub holiday in Bibury.
