Our most beautiful large cottages with hot tubs in the UK

Sarah 22 July 2020

Holidays are for making time for the things you don’t usually have a chance to do, and indulging in luxuries, like relaxing in a hot tub, just because you can. Treat yourselves on your next group or family holiday and choose a large holiday cottage with a hot tub, where you can come together, sip wine, listen to music and exchange memories beneath a canopy of stars.

It’s not just great for socialising, but it offers a little solo escape when you need 5 minutes to yourself too. It’s somewhere for early risers to sip their morning coffee, avid readers to escape with their book and parents to enjoy some downtime. We have chosen some of our favourite large cottages with hot tubs that are in truly exquisite locations, from sunken tubs in the decking at the foot of a mountain, to perched atop a cliff with panoramic views.

Grab a book and retire to the sunny terrace, call shotgun on the master bedrooms with the glass-fronted balcony or take a dip in the heated outdoor pool surrounded by reeds and grasses. The indulgent sunken hot tub is sure to become the hub of activity as the sun slips into the ocean each evening.
