Glamping Holidays with a Hot Tub

This is our collection of amazing hot tub places to stay in the great outdoors. There are over 150 of them, from floating cabins near London to treehouse castles in France, each one visited and carefully selected by us. Some are great for honeymoons and romantic weekends away, others for a family holiday. All are creatively-designed, characterful places with the added bonus of steaming, relaxing hot tubs. 

FEATURED PLACES TO STAY

A tub for any occasion - a coastal retreat, splashing out but on a budget, a crisp winter soak at our year-round spaces or romantic tubbing time after your big day.

OUTDOOR WASHES

Hot tubs are just one way to get wet and wild. You can also find yourself showering with a view of miles of wetlands, sitting in a copper tub in the trees or running a bath in a forest. 

WOOD-FIRED HOT TUBS

SEARCH BY GUESTS

Whether you need space for the dog to run wild while you soak, or something the whole family can splash in, there’s a hot tub here for you.  

SEARCH BY LOCATION

You'll find hot tubs wherever you go! If you climb down to a crashing cove in Devon, if you climb up to a treehouse in the Garonne; if you wander through the Dales or even if you crunch out onto the ice in Finland.   


Can you go in a hot tub when pregnant?

Unfortunately it is advisable to avoid hot tubs during pregnancy due to the high temperatures. Having a quick dip may affect your baby, so it's best to be careful. Don't worry though, as there are plenty of other things to do whilst glamping, such as stargazing by the fire, connecting with nature and bringing drinks to the people in the hot tub.

Can babies go in hot tubs?

It's recommended that children under five years old do not go into a hot tub. The depth of water (many hot tubs have only low benches on the inside) is a safety risk even if you consider the high water temperature to be safe for your child.

How hot should a hot tub be?

Not sure what temperature to aim for? The ideal hot tub is about 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit). Most hot tubs have a thermometer bobbing around in them so you can check the progress. Remember to stir though! The rising heat can fool you into thinking it's hot all the way down. Then when you jump in and mix the hotter surface water with the colder depths, you've got a lukewarm tub.

Is sitting in a hot tub good for you?

Soaking in a hot tub does have some physical benefits, such as relaxing muscles and improving circulation, but the steam and heat can be a hazard for people who have circulatory or respiratory system problems so it's always good to be cautious. There's a definite psychological benefit that comes from bathing under the stars too.

What are the benefits of being in a hot tub?

The benefits of being in a hot tub can include relieving tension and stress, lowering blood pressure and inducing a solid night's sleep. When you combine this with glamping outdoors and connecting with nature, the benefits are immense! Some people say an icy cold dip is just as invigorating and while we love a bracing wild swim, it's much harder to hold champagne while you're shivering.

How long to heat up a wood fired hot tub?

It can take around 3 hours to get your hot tub up to the temperature you want, so make sure you fire it up in good time before you're planning to take a dip. The actual time it takes will depend on the temperature of the water to begin with, the size of the hot tub and what the weather's like outside. For a new year's eve soak as the snow falls, start early! And, as we've said before, remember to stir!
