Uncovering Idyllic Hot Tub Breaks in the UK

* Accommodation search powered by  SnapTrip
Hot Tub Breakaway focuses on one thing; finding the best holiday accommodation with hot tubs, in the most elegant parts of the UK.

We know how frustrating it is to find that perfect lodge, cottage, cabin or pod, only to dig through the property listing and see a hot tub isn’t part of the deal. Our aim is to take out that frustration when it comes to searching for your next getaway.

And we do that by ONLY listing properties on our shortlists that include a hot tub as part of your holiday. If a property is listed on our site, it has a hot tub; it’s as simple as that.

Unlike other websites offering hot tub breaks in England, Scotland and Wales, we don’t list every property available. We don’t feel that’s a useful way for people to discover the best of what the UK has to offer, and it makes booking a holiday a time consuming process.

Instead, we research sought after locations with hot tub lodges, cabins and hideaways, featuring only the most idyllic hot tub breaks in the UK on our site. And, that’s based on hours of reading accommodation listings, comparing prices and holidaymaker reviews.
