The best locations for countryside hot tub breaks
Isle of Skye
Best for? Walking and hiking
The Isle of Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebrides in Scotland and boasts 50 miles of adventure. Over the years, it’s become known as a world-class destination for walkers, hikers and climbers – thanks to dramatic scenery and diverse landscapes around every corner. The capital, Portree, offers a bustling port with family attractions and restaurants, and close by there are also several villages. Visitors in the area have also spotted a number of unusual and special wildlife including whales, puffins and eagles.
Best for? Ancient stories
These days Pendle in Lancashire might be known for its 43-mile walking route, Pendle Way, but the area is also steeped in history and legend. Many of the walking routes even take you past witch-related locations, if you feel brave enough. The town itself is surrounded by wild countryside and there are lots of pubs and country inns – just waiting to welcome you in. Many are even dog-friendly and serve up delicious local produce that Lancashire is famous for.
Best for? Wildlife spotting
This seaside reserve in Liverpool boasts golden sands, amongst pine woodland and rolling hills. It’s a fantastic place for walks and adventures, and also attracts nature enthusiasts and wildlife lovers from afar. In fact, few places in the UK are home to such an abundance of animals. From rare seabirds, red squirrels, moths, sand lizards, the great crested newt and the natterjack toad, there are lots to keep your eyes peeled for. The squirrels are even super friendly and can be fed nuts by hand! As well as this, fossils can be found on the beach which makes for a great adventure.
Best for? Pretty pictures
Just south of London in the Surrey Hills area of the North Downs, you’ll find Sheepleas – a beautiful nature reserve that’s packed with meadows, hills and endless countryside. Cowslip, bluebells, orchids, wild thyme and common rock rose all grow here and the landscape comes alive in spring and summer when there’s a riot of colour. Birds are in their abundance too as are butterflies (more than 30 different kinds), grasshoppers and crickets. There are plenty of walking routes to enjoy including an officially marked Woodland Trail and another being a Grassland Trail. One thing’s for sure, you won’t want to forget your camera for this trip.
Best for? Family-friendly activities
Nestled in Somerset’s countryside, Wiveliscombe is a small rural town that’s home to under 3,000 people. It’s quaint, charming and an ideal place if you want to escape the masses. But, despite its secluded location, there’s plenty to do and see including the local brewery, lots of walking routes, regular markets, a cinema, pool, skate park, nearby theatre group and several sports groups. Winston Churchill might have previously asked, ‘where in the world is Wiveliscombe?’ when national treasures were taken from London during the Blitz but it’s firmly positioned itself on the map today.
The best activities in rural areas
After a morning spent in your log cabin with hot tub, why not get out in the great outdoors and explore on foot? From the Isle of Wight all the way to the Lake District, the UK has plenty of designated walking and hiking routes for all fitness abilities. Many are even pet friendly so you can invite the whole family!
The best thing about rural retreats is beautiful landscapes and peace and quiet. So, what better way to make the most of your surroundings than with a picnic? Head into one of the nearby market towns or villages, stock up on some goods and find a quiet spot to sit back for a good few hours.
The UK is home to some Dark Sky Reserves, which are areas that are recognised for their starry nights. Many can be found in the countryside and you might even be able to spot a few constellations from your own holiday cottage with hot tub. Just be sure to wrap up warm but we guarantee it’ll be an evening to remember.
Another great activity that’ll get the whole family out is biking. Plus, there are lots of trails you can follow. Don’t forget to plan a few pit stops along the way – maybe one at a local pub for some lunch and one in a nearby village on the way back for ice creams all round.
Champagne in a luxury hot tub
One thing that sets our rural holidays apart is that all our properties come with a private hot tub – making it the perfect choice for a romantic retreat. Plus, after a long day, where better to go than your luxury cottage for some bubbles surrounded by bubbles? Whether you’re celebrating a special anniversary or just want to impress your other half, a hot tub holiday in rural landscapes is great for a romantic break.
