What could be more romantic than a hot tub escape along Cornwall’s stunning coastline? That is exactly what you will find at Three Mile Beach, just off Gwithian Beach, where each beautiful beach house features a decked out outdoor area with a sunken cedar hot tub and a barrel sauna. If you prefer a lake view in the Cornish countryside, Lake View offers a spa area with Jacuzzi and sauna, allowing you to relax without leaving the lodge. Of course, you will have to leave the hot tub some time, and when you do, there are plenty of amazing things to do in Cornwall, including romantic beach walks and sunset picnics. (TT’s sites at Looe and Holywell Bay could be included in this?)
The Lake District is beautiful and romantic, with or without a hot tub. Spend the day revelling in the area’s stunning landscapes and charming towns, enjoying the tranquillity of nature, taking a romantic boat ride, or just a lakeside stroll. Then, retreat to your luxury cottage and relax in your soothing hot tub, as the cares of real life melt away. At the Windermere Boutique Hotel in Cumbria, a four-star, adult-only guest house known as Brandy Lodge features private indoor or outdoor hot tubs in seven of its eight gorgeous suites. Step out of your hot tub and into a provided fluffy robe, perhaps to await an in-room massage or beauty treatment.
The Scottish Highlands are mystical and magical, perfect for a romantic holiday, with stunning views and plenty to do. If you are looking for a hot tub escape in the Highlands, though, those are plentiful as well. At the Kessock Highland Lodges, in North Kessock, you’ll enjoy deluxe, chalet-style accommodations, with gorgeous outdoor spaces and decadent private hot tubs. You can completely relax in this rural retreat, or plan an outing to explore an ancient castle, stroll through an elegant garden, watch playful dolphins as you glide through the water, or enjoy the bustling city of Inverness, just a short drive away. Scenic hikes and starlit hot tub evenings will set the stage for the perfect romantic getaway.
What is more romantic than a hot tub getaway in the idyllic settings of the Cotswolds? In the quaint villages of this region, you will find charming cottages and inns that offer private hot tubs in picturesque settings. Consider Dormy House, a converted 17th-century farmhouse just above the honey-hued village of Broadway, where a peaceful pool, an outdoor hot tub, and a Scandinavian-inspired thermal suite are all part of the location’s offerings. Some suites at Dormy House also have a silver slipper bathtub or a private hot tub. Another great option is the Old Stables in Oxfordshire, where you can relax in the large hot tub before enjoying the wood-burner and underfloor heating. At either of these locations, you can spend your days exploring romantic gardens, strolling through lovely villages, and enjoying countryside views.
In the intimate and charming Yorkshire Dales, you will find your hot tub bliss in lodgings that include cozy cottages, barn conversions, and secluded cabins. There are plenty of things for couples to do in this beautiful area. Picture a day spent hiking amidst the splendour of a rural setting, having supper at a cosy local pub, perhaps by a crackling fire, then heading back to your snug little hideaway to relax in a soothing hot tub while you reflect on the day. Consider the Blue Plain Dairy in Pateley Bridge, one of the most gorgeous towns in the Dales. In this cosy cottage, you will find warm, comfortable finishings and an outdoor hot tub. Another great option is Crane Field Laithe in Airton, where your spacious living area leads out to a stunning patio and a hot tub with a view.
Escape to a hot tub on the enchanting Isle of Skye, where you will enjoy secluded, romantic settings with breathtaking views of the rugged landscapes. Maybe you will stay in a little log cabin in Lochbay, where the hot tub and Conservatory offer stunning sea and skyscape views. Perhaps you will even catch a glimpse of Aurora Borealis! If you decide to tear yourself away from your secluded self-catered retreat, we recommend taking a hike together, exploring coastal cliffs, and soaking in the tranquillity of the island.
In the Surrey Hills, you will find luxury accommodations in boutique hotels, country estates, and spa retreats, all offering private hot tubs. From rustic log cabins and glamping to captivating cottages and Edwardian country style homes, there is no shortage of hot tub stays in the Surrey Hills. What will you do when you’re not relaxing in the soothing bubbles? Enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds you, or visit a garden like Leith Hill Rhododendron Wood or Winkworth Arboretum. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants for a date night, including Firedoor, Pellegrino, Jane, and Beau, and you can get ready for your night out with a spa day at Guildford Harbour Spa or the Spa at the Runnymede on Thames.
What could be more romantic than a hot tub retreat amidst the majestic landscapes of Snowdonia? There is no shortage of properties like the Enlli Lodge, a getaway for two with sea and mountain views, surrounded by farmland. A short walk from the beach and next to the Wales Coastal Path, this cosy lodge boasts a hot tub where you can relax after a day spent on the beach, walking, cycling, or enjoying the glory of Snowdonia, with its breathtaking landscapes of rugged mountains, lush valleys, and serene lakes. Take a hike, explore some waterfalls, enjoy the wilderness, and then spend the evening in your private hot tub retreat.
Along the elegant coastlines of Norfolk, you will find boutique beachfront accommodations and seaside cottages boasting private hot tubs. Consider the quirky Old Cricket Pavilion in Warham, just a mile inland from the North Norfolk Coast. Peaceful and serene, it has a wood-fired hot tub perfect for relaxing at the end of a long day of coastal activities. Take a seaside walk, engage in some beachcombing, enjoy some fresh seafood, then head to a cottage or a boutique hotel to soak in your bubbling hot tub.
Looking to spark romance in the crackling electricity of a trendy urban setting? In cities like London or Manchester, you will find romantic hot tub escapes in boutique hotels and penthouse suites, boasting private hot tubs and city skyline views. Picture a stay in London, visiting the iconic sites, strolling the streets, maybe catching a show at the West End or dining at a chic new restaurant. As the day comes to a close, you make your way to the New Road Hotel in Whitechapel, situated in a former textile factory, where your deluxe room features a bubbling hot tub on your terrace with its sweeping city views. Another great pick is the Standard, where the rich and trendy go to play. In the Junior Suite Terrace, you can enjoy incredible views of St. Pancras Station from the steamy hot tub on your private terrace.
