Shank Wood Log Cabin, a Canadian-style cabin for fourin achingly scenic Cumbria, has been skilfully constructed from an entire tree trunk to blend in perfectly with its natureful surroundings.  Evenings come to the most exquisite end when enjoyed fromthe eco-friendly, wood-fired hot tub that doubles up as a bath… and once you’ve bathed under the stars, we can promise that you’ll never want to run a humdrum bath indoors again!


For a taste of historic Scotland that’s infused with contemporary touches, why not head to The White Tower, a five-star tower retreat for fourthat was originally built in 1306?  Traditionally Scottish, dressed in Highlands style and surrounded by gloriously green views, you’ll feel like the monarch of your very own glen.  Survey your kingdom by taking the stairs to the roof terrace, where you’ll find a beautifully bubblinghot tub waiting for you in the turret.  Simply open your very own bubbles, sit back and relax.


Looking out over the Severn Estuary, West Usk Lighthouse is a 180 year-old conversion that’s perfectly positioned for you to enjoy all thecharm and character of South Wales – with a few quirky surprises thrownin.  
One such surprise is a Dalek in the entrance hall…and there’s a Tardis on the roof!  The Tardis doubles up as a changing room for the exquisite, softly lit modern hot tub that looks out across the roof garden and beyond.  Your regeneration is complete.


Blissfully secluded in a secretive cove on the South Devon coast, you’ll discover The Beach Hut – a grown-ups only, romantic retreatfor two that features seriously breathtaking coastal views out to sea, not to mention your own personal sandy beach.  Begin your magical holiday story with a spot of night-time stargazing in the wood-fired outdoor hot tub…simply light the woodburner and float blissfully away…


A garden makes for the perfect place to relax and let your imagination carry you away…a task made easy in A Secret Garden, a magical hideaway pod for two that was inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett’s much-loved children’s novel.  

Found in the heart of lush Kent countryside, you’ll experience all the fun and freshness of the garden inside as well as out, with stable doorsleading you to your very own sunken wood hot tub outside (not forgetting your complimentary towelling robe and slippers, of course!). 

The Beehive Hot Tub, found at North Hill Farm in Chorleywood, is seriously buzz-worthy!  Part of the homely, hive-like Beehive accommodation for two,your Queen Bee-striped heated hot bath overlooks a lush field that leads to a babbling river at the bottom of the Chess Valley – meaning soothing views and a tranquil atmosphere are assured.


Experience heaven on Earth with a stay at St. Curig’s Church, a creative 19th century conversion full of celestial charm,serenely set amongst a backdrop of the stunning Snowdonia mountains in the quaint village of Capel Curig.  Your stay will be truly complete, asyou watch the golden sun setting over the Snowdon Horseshoe with a glass of bubbly amongst the bubbles from your roomily luxurious, traditional tub!


For sumptuously sustainable camping at its most naturally reviving, try Longlands, where you can reconnect with nature amongst a North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where everyone is welcome, including the dog.  

Secluded in a private valley flanked by waterfalls and a sparkling lake, choose from five luxury safari lodgesthat each sleep up to six people, and then head for the jewel in the crown!  An eco-loving wood-fired hot tub awaits you on its very own deckabove the lake, featuring valley views that make for a stunningly scenic sunset dip.

Set along the sweeping south coast of Cornwall is the beautiful village port of Charlestown, playing host to none other than Poldark in its time!  The original ‘Loo with a View‘- these days known as Harbour Lights – is the ideal Amazing Space, its elegant restoration featuring fabulous design touches and truly unsurpassed views from the cliff top.

Trust us when we say the coastal views become even better, when they’re experienced with a glass of bubbles from the lavish, four-seater hot tublooking out across the sea.


For the ultimate in eco-friendly five-star luxury, Jackdaw Quarry Lodges is your destination, with two uniquely distinctive self-catering lodgesbuilt on the limestone cliff edges of Jackdaw Quarry, by the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.   The ideal escape for families, friends and couples alike, each lovingly-detailed lodge comes complete with its own six-person, beautifully bubbling hot tub, allowing you to look out over panoramic views of the crystal clear lake and refreshing countryside beyond.
