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 and 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
Hot tub holidays are particularly ideal for couples, small groups of friends, families and even large groups (such as work gatherings, hen parties and stag parties).
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 to enjoy a romantic break – a luxury lodge or traditional cottage with a hot tub will be time very well spent.
By holidaying at wooden lodges or cosy cottages with hot tubs means you are less reliant upon ‘favourable’ weather. It doesn’t make much difference whether you holiday in Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter you will be able to enjoy endless hours of relaxation in your private hot tub.
It’s not ‘just’ about the hot tub… There are lots of holiday lodges, cottages, parks and barns 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.

Beginning of the month = Medium demand
Mid through to the end of the month = Low demand
The 1st is public holiday. Expect the 2015 New Year and the run off into the first week in January to be a busy period. Also, many lodges and cottages are being booked up for the Valentine’s weekend.
Early and late month = Low demand
Mid to late of the month = High demand
Beginning just after the mid way point is the February’s half term holiday for the schools and Valentine’s day is, as usual on the 14th, which is a Saturday. Bookings for Valentine’s day breaks increase from early February.
Early and mid month = Lower demand
End of month = Lower demand
Mid way through the month on the 17th is St Patrick’s Day. Good Friday on the 25th, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday on the 27th and 28th together with the end of term school holidays.
Early and end month = Medium demand
Middle of month = High demand
End of term school holidays means April will likely see lots of couples, families and friends taking short and long breaks at the start and end of the month.
Beginning of the month = Medium demand
Mid month = Low 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 2nd, Spring bank holiday is on Monday the 30th together with school half term holidays beginning (approx).
All month = Med demand
With the remainder of the school half term falling over from May into June, demand will be high in early June. With the long, light nights, temperatures on the rise (we can hope!) – many holidaymakers look to book up and take their break before the schools break up and probable prices increase. These factors all account for the steady demand for June.
Beginning of the month = Med demand
End of month = High demand
Peak season is beginning due to the school summer holidays starting part way through the month.
All month = High demand
Summer bank holiday and the school holidays together with one of the warmest time 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 could 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.
Beginning of the month = Low demand
End of the month = High demand
Half term school holidays begin in the last week of October. 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 early autumn sun.
All month = Low demand
The only Bank Holiday is St Andrew’s Day for Scotland. Without any school holidays and autumn is fully upon us which sees lower than average demand and in turn usually brings lower prices, which are ripe to be taken advantage of.
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 holiday in a lodge or cottage – if you’re wanting to book a holiday let over these dates, then it is recommended to book early.
