After a day exploring some of Britain’s best landscapes, where better to retreat to than your very own hot tub?
UK Lodges With Hot Tubs
Looking for a family-friendly getaway where even the dogs are invited? Perhaps you want to reignite the spark with a romantic break for two? Or maybe, you and some friends want a change in routine and are looking for somewhere to meet a few different requirements. Either way, a luxury lodge could be just the thing.
Choose from the likes of Wales, the Lake District, Yorkshire and Scotland – and say hello to a home away from home experience, thanks to all of the mod cons and a few little extras. Come winter, create a cosy haven inside your hot tub cabin and take in the scenes with a fire roaring beside you. In summer, chill the drinks, get your swimsuit on and open the doors to allow for uninterrupted views.
When you’re not inside your log cabin with hot tub, spend your days hiking and trekking. Stop off in neighbouring market towns and villages, and try some local delicacies. Search out the dog-friendly establishments, beaches and walks beforehand so no-one has to miss out. Or, visit the nearby holiday parks for a night of family fun and entertainment.
One thing’s for sure, a hot tub holiday in the UK guarantees plenty of things to do and lots of memories to last a lifetime.

Best mountains to enjoy a UK lodge holiday
Where? Lake District
Great Gable is one of the most popular challenges in the Lake District. Even if you haven’t heard of it, you’ll probably recognise it. It’s in the centre of the national park and looks like a big pyramid from one side but it’s actually rounded from the other side. You can also choose what you see if you do decide to hike up this mountain – some routes offer lakeside views, others more of a countryside and rock formation. Either way, it’s a great place to add to your list.
Where? Northern Ireland
Nestled in the Mourne Mountain range, Slieve Donard is the tallest peak in Northern Ireland. If you do manage to reach the top, keep your eyes open for the remains of Great Cairn – a passage tomb that’s said to be the highest of its kind. Another attraction to keep a lookout for is the Mourne Wall, which actually passes over 15 mountains! However far you make it up though, the views really are stunning and, even from the bottom, your pictures will be great.
The tallest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis is popular with hikers and holidaymakers alike. With various paths to choose from, if you fancy the challenge of ‘Ben’, you can make it as difficult as you like. What’s more, if staying warm in a nearby pub or cafe is more your sport, the town of Fort William won’t disappoint. If you do manage it to the summit, take in those views – you’re around 1345m above sea level.
Where? Lake District
Together with Ben Nevis and Snowdon, Scafell Pike makes up the popular Three Peak Challenge. From the top of Scafell Pike, you can even see as far as Wales, Scotland and Ireland on a good day – so you won’t want to forget your camera. It’s also home to the highest standing water in England and you can actually reach the top in as little as 3 hours. Of course, you’ve got to get back down but there are plenty of pubs with warm open fires just waiting for you when you do.
Possibly one of the most popular mountains in the UK, and the highest in Wales, Snowdon is said to attract more people every year than any other mountain in Britain. While there are many walking routes and hiking paths, there’s also a railway that takes visitors to the top and bottom making it a great choice for those non-walkers and families in general. The view at the top has even been voted as the most spectacular view in the UK so, if you do one thing while you’re in Wales, we recommend aiming high.
