Honey-hewed stone, rolling pastures and traditional pubs with flagstone floors – it doesn’t get more quintessentially English than the Cotswolds. Book a cabin with a hot tub to take in the epic views in glorious tranquillity while soaking your cares away. Work up an appetite walking the Cotswold Way before whipping up a feast for dinner from produce picked up at local markets and farm shops. As you explore this area of outstanding natural beauty, you’ll trip over a chocolate box village at every turn. Take a look at our cabins with hot tubs in the Cotswolds.
At Canopy & Stars, we don’t do cookie cutter getaways, instead we find characterful, quirky, unique places for you to stay. All of our cabins in the Cotswolds have a close connection to nature and the added bonus of a hot tub provides a blissfully relaxing way of enjoying time in the great outdoors. We don’t want nature to be a pretty backdrop that you glimpse out of the window, our cabins fully immerse you in this ancient English landscape.
Hot tubs need a bit of time and care before you’re steaming under the stars. Always look for instructions from the owner on the specific type at the space, but here are a few tips to get your hot tub technique up to a simmer before you arrive.
Spanning 112km of West Country, the Cotswolds borders four major cities, more than a few smaller ones, plenty of towns and untold villages. At its lowest border it curls round the city of Bath, where natural springs push up through modern spas, and the iconic Bath stone clads grand Georgian buildings. In between, you’ll find those 112km laden with wild spaces, beautiful scenery, wildlife aplenty and every inch – worth exploring.
Dive into the invigorating world of wild swimming to awaken your senses and send any stress bubbling off downstream. Take a look at our cabins where you can get the endorphins flowing with an outdoor dip followed by a long soak in warm bubbles.
Breathe in the fresh air, crack open the bubbles and make new memories. Cuddling up together in a warm outdoor hot tub under a sparkling blanket of stars will be the icing on the cake (or the skylight in the treehouse).
What’s it like to stay in a cabin with a hot tub? Cabin life means waking up to the sound of bird song, taking that first sip of morning coffee under a blanket on the deck, gazing out over fields, woods and babbling streams. It’s not that you can’t rush around, it’s that you won’t want to. Nature has a strange ability to slow us down, calm racing minds and soothe jangling nerves. Set off on meandering strolls from your front door to discover roaring fires in country pubs, ancient castles, farmland and lavender fields. Then hunker down for long evenings unwinding in the hot tub, as you gaze at a blanket of stars in the vast skies above.

What makes the Cotswolds so special? The Cotswolds is somewhere to celebrate the lighter side of life. This is the land of Morris dancing and famous cheese rolling festivals after all. There’s a creative, feel-good energy in the air with a wealth of foodie delights, artisan businesses and mythical sites to discover. Visit the ancient city of Bath for an injection of culture, wander through historic gardens and cycle along country lanes. The Cotswolds is popular with tourists but when you stay off-the-beaten-track in one of our cabins with a hot tub, you’ll find even more to discover than you thought. Especially when our hosts give you the inside scoop on hidden gems just around the corner.
