Whatever the season, or weather, hot tub breaks always make for a great holiday.
From storm watching to star gazing, nothing beats kicking off your flip flops (or hiking boots) and slipping into some blissful hot bubbles to clear the mind and sooth aching muscles. Especially when accompanied with a glass of your favourite tipple!
Whether you’re booking a romantic getaway, a family Staycation, or a get-together with friends, why not make your next UK cottage break even more special by choosing a holiday cottage with a hot tub?
