Hot tub breaks are an ideal holiday where you can take in the added luxury of having your very own hottub at your disposal. Imagine arriving back at your secluded pine lodge after an enjoyable walk in the countryside, then being able to soak your tired muscles in the bubbling hot tub on the veranda as the sun sets!
Hot Tub Breaks Are Perfect For…
Couples, small groups of friends, families and even large groups (such as work gatherings, hen parties and stag parties) can find accommodation to suit them.
Whether you are a family who want to take in an outdoor lifestyle on a 3 night short break, or a couple going away for a long weekend for a romantic break – a luxury lodge, traditional cottage, glamping in a treehouse or pod camping awaits you.

It’s not ‘just’ about the hot tub…there are lots of holiday lodges, cottages, caravan parks and barns and more which have hot tubs that also boast other facilities such as being pet friendly – so you can bring dogs, near to beaches / the seaside and have on-site fishing lakes to name but a few.

The 1st is a public holiday. Expect the 2020 New Year and the run off into the first week in January to be a relatively busy period, especially as Schools are closed. Also, many lodges and cottages are seeing increased demand for the up and coming Valentine’s weekend.
It’s a very popular time for people to book their break for the coming year and many of the most popular dates get snapped up. If you have specific dates in mind, don’t hesitate.
Early parts = Low demand
Mid to late of the month = High demand
Availability from the middle of February onwards and continuing into the month will be very high. If you’re looking to book these dates it’s advised not to leave it until the last minute. Late availability will be scare due to the February half term holidays as well as Valentine’s day – the 14th falls on a Thursday this year. It’s popular time of the year for self catering breaks.
Early and mid month = Mid demand
End of month = Mid demand

End of month = High demand
Two Bank Holidays and the school half term break should provide many with the opportunity for a long weekend or a full week away in May. Early May bank holiday is on the 8th, Spring bank holiday is on Monday the 25th together with school half term holidays beginning (approx.).
All month = Med demand
This year there are no notable dates in June. Long, light nights, temperatures on the rise – there’s still demand as holidaymakers look to book up and take their break before the school’s year finishes to avoid the higher prices. These factors all account for the steady demand for June.
Beginning of the month = Med demand
End of month = High demand
We’re entering peak season due to the school summer holidays starting part way through the month.
All month = High demand
Summer bank holiday on Monday the 31st and together with the school holidays and one of the warmest times for the UK means, as usual, holiday lets will be in high demand in August.
All month = Medium demand
No Bank Holidays and the start of the new school year will mean slightly lower demand compared to August. However, with the summer season still upon us for most of the month, there will be significant demand still for September breaks. Many people start to plan and book accommodation for New Year’s Eve whilst there is still reasonable availability.
Beginning of the month = Low demand
End of the month = High demand
Half term school holidays begin in last week of October for many. The beginning and middle part of the month is lower in demand, yet still fairly popular as the temperatures are usually reasonable and there’s a chance of catching some sun in early autumn.
Beginning of the month = Medium demand
Mid and the end month = Low demand
The only Bank Holiday is St Andrew’s Day on the 30th which is a Monday.
Beginning and middle of the month = Low demand
End of month = High demand
Lower demand for the first part of the month. The Christmas period and especially New Year are times when many want to spend the holidays in a lodge or cottage – if you’re wanting to book a holiday let over the Christmas and New Years’ period, then it is recommended to book early.
