Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire | Sleeps 2 | No pets | From £185 p/night
This place is pretty special. The original beautiful ash tree forms the spine of this very special treehouse holiday cottage and the open plan accommodation wraps itself around it, gently hugging it. It’s the amazing combination of bohemian fairytale and contemporary luxury that makes this hot tub cottage so unique.
Set in the grounds of a working farm with wildlife lakes and flower meadows near Tenbury-Wells in Worcestershire, you’ll have plenty of things to see and do in the area. This area is a bit of a hidden gem with the foodie town of Ludlow close by and there are plenty of walks on your doorstep.
Crewkerne, Somerset | Sleeps 4 | No Pets | From £185 p/night
Set on an organic farm Candlestick Cottage is a perfect example of a rustic hot tub cottage in rural Somerset. It retains all the charm and character of the old cottage; well used oak latch doors, the stone fireplace and the perfectly uneven walls. But at the same time the owners have successfully introduced contemporary items and luxury touches such as a roll top bath in the master bedroom and a light and airy kitchen extension.
And the shared hot tub is a triumph; with stunning views over the rolling countryside it is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
St. Just, Cornwall | Sleeps 8 | Pets welcome | From £180 p/night
This brand new holiday home is a real show-stopper. Designed to impress, it features vaulted ceilings, a designer staircase, luxury bathrooms and boutique hotel-style bedrooms.
And its unique location on Cape Cornwall means you get uninterrupted sea views, both from the house and the private hot tub. Miles of stunning footpaths are on your doorstep so it’s great that you can bring up to three (yes, three!) well behaved dogs. Perfect for family gatherings or a group holiday we think this place is pretty hard to beat.
Perthshire, Scotland | Sleeps 4 | No pets | From £170 p/night
We don’t think any holiday cottage can be more romantic than this one. Complete with its turreted tower, The White Tower near Taynult Castle has everything to make you feel like you’re in a fairytale.
And best of all; the hot tub is positioned on top of the tower, giving you the most breathtaking views over the surrounding Scottish scenery, filled with mountains and lochs. Or on those crisp evenings, what better place to soak up the stars from this super romantic hot tub retreat.
Frome Valley, Dorset | Sleeps 4 | No dogs | From £140 p/night
For all the romantics amongst us we just had to include this chocolate box pretty hot tub cottage in Dorset. Quintessentially English, Lanes End Cottage is surrounded by rolling countryside with plenty of lovely walks from your doorstep.
That is, if you can tear yourself away from the historic cottage with its cosy sitting room with Inglenook fireplace, sociable kitchen diner, sumptuous bedrooms and luxury bathroom with a freestanding copper slipper bath.
And then there is the hot tub. Tucked away in a private spot off the patio it’s a perfect place to relax and unwind at the end of a day’s exploring with the sounds of babbling brook in the background – heaven!
Kingsbridge, Devon | Sleeps 4 | No dogs | No children under 16 | From £185 p/night
Don’t be fooled by the name – this hot tub cottage in Devon is fit for the most discerning of guests, complete with luxuries such as a contemporary freestanding bath, and wooden hot tub.
The Cattle Shed also ranks high because of its setting; secluded, with gorgeous views down to the Start Estuary as well as your own private swimming lake.
And its proximity to the coast means you’ve got some of the country’s best beaches and coastal towns on your doorstep like Kingsbridge and Salcombe.
Bude, Devon | Sleeps 2 | No pets | From £85 p/night
The Roundhouse is a super quirky place to stay, taking glamping to a whole new level. Here you really get the best of both worlds with a luxurious king-size bed and a super comfy sofa as well as an indoor/outdoor kitchen and plenty of options for al fresco dining.
And then there is the hot tub; the genuine article, wood fired of course, so you get the chance to stoke it up and then soak up the stars. Set on a peaceful glamping site near Bude in Cornwall, you also have the best beaches on your doorstep.

Another spectacular property in St. Just made it to our shortlist; The Hayloft is a luxury hot tub cottage in Cornwall with a fabulous balcony deck offering great views across the surrounding countryside. We love the fact that you can even bring your pooches; this hot tub cottage is dog friendly.
With two bedrooms and two bathrooms it’s ideal for families or if you’re staying with friends and one of the beds even features a hidden TV; perfect for lazy mornings. The open plan living area is a great place to relax with the contemporary wood burner on cosy evenings.
The large private hot tub is located just a few steps into the garden and is covered so you can enjoy it in all weathers and all year round.
Windermere, The Lake District | Sleeps 2 | No pets | From £90 p/night
It comes complete with your private hot tub, but the star of the show has to be the amazing view over the lake. No wonder then that the owners decided to make this hot tub cottage open plan so you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery from the kitchen, lounge and even your bed. Imagine waking up to this!
The Boathouse offers privacy and seclusion but is still within a short drive of the best restaurants in the area. Try Linthwaite House in Bowness or L’Enclume in picturesque Cartmel.
