Romantic Hot Tub Breaks
Whether you’re indulging in a long weekend or are simply looking for one night away from normality, a hot tub holiday is a treat that the whole family will love. The hardest part about it is choosing exactly where to go. For endless exploration, pack your hiking boots and head off to the Lake District National Park or Peak District. For something a little more lively, it’s got to be one of the UK’s best-loved cities like London, Manchester or Edinburgh. And, if you’re looking to combine a little slice of everything, a trip to North Wales or North Yorkshire is sure to impress.
Of course, one thing that truly makes a getaway is the holiday cottage itself – whether you’re travelling with friends, family, partners or alone. Choose from cosy cabins in complete privacy, peruse our selection of holiday homes that come with luxury extras like swimming pools, or go all out when it comes to family-friendly fun and find a home away from home in a log cabin at one of the UK’s popular holiday parks.
One thing’s for sure – a bubbling hot tub will definitely put the cherry on the top of your weekend break. From catching up with friends, taking in the scenery or providing a perfect bit of me-time, a private hot tub guarantees holiday memories that last a lifetime.
