Cornwall is home to some of the UK’s most beautiful beaches, and over a third of the county is labelled as an area of outstanding natural beauty. That means for holidaymakers looking for a hot tub break, Cornwall is usually one of the top destinations on their shortlist.
This guide covers the different types of lodges with hot tubs in Cornwall, our pick for the best and some inspiration for what to see and do when you get there.
Before we jump into villages, towns and beach resorts we like in Cornwall, we’ll cover our favourite holiday lodge with a hot tub, picked from a selection of over 100 of the top holiday cottage, log cabin and lodge websites in the UK.
The fact you’ve focused on Cornwall as the place for your hot tub break is a start. But, there are still 100s of different hot tub lodges to choose from, and in a range of beautiful villages, towns and coastal resorts.
Like any holidaymaker would, we’ve picked our favourite hot tub retreat in Cornwall by researching destinations, but also holiday lodge websites. We checked through reviews, prices, facilities and things to do in the local vicinity for each property. And to do this, we used websites such as Kayak, Expedia, Booking.com, Holiday Cottages, Hoseasons, Sykes Cottages and more.
Essentially, we’ve done the hard work, so you don’t have to. And that’s led us to our favourite lodge with a hot tub in Cornwall; the one we’d be booking today for the perfect getaway.
If you’ve been looking for a holiday lodge with a hot tub in the north coast of Cornwall, you’re in for a treat. Miners Lodge is one of the most luxurious and well priced lodges for groups and large families, sleeping up to 10 guests, and situated in Portreath, a small and picturesque village and fishing port.
We found many of the other lodges with hot tubs on the north coast of Cornwall to be reasonably basic considering the price, and not all had their own hot tub (but the Miner’s hot tub lodge does).
With easy access to the likes of Portreath and Porthtowan and with so much space, this makes the ideal hot tub retreat for family getaways, or for large groups (such as hen parties and stag parties).
Miners hot tub lodge is one of the best places to book a hot tub lodge in Cornwall based on all the lodges we reviewed. We think the contemporary design, mixed in with the on-site facilities (private hot tub for one), make this the best value holiday cottage we could find.
When you book into a self catering break here, you can expect the following:
Miners hot tub holiday lodge is the perfect setting if you’re after fantastic views in a secluded location, but want easy access to the hustle and bustle of coastal villages during your getaway.
Compared to other holiday accommodation we reviewed, we found that Miners lodge offered a much more centralised location.
For instance, you’ll be located in Carharrack, which in itself is extremely peaceful. Yet, you’ll have access to a range of activities (and that just doesn’t include beaches). That includes the likes of the impressive Radnor Golf Course, which has a 9 and 18 hole on offer, and a leisure facility with an indoor ski centre.
From there, you can entertain children at the Redruth Treasure Park, or absorb stunning scenery via 30 plus miles of tramways. And of course, no trip to the Cornwall coast is complete without visiting its array of golden sandy beaches, the best local ones being at Porthtowan, Portreath or Perranporth.

Whether you’re looking for coastal walks in St Ives, or looking for a romantic retreat in Truro, there are plenty of things to see and do when you visit Cornwall. The question is, which ones are the very best of all the things to do we found?
The Eden Project is a sight worth seeing if you’re in South Cornwall. It’s a combination of modern architecture and design. It’s home to a range of rare rainforest and Mediterranean plants, trails, sculptures and more.
Thinking of visiting the Eden Project in Cornwall on your hot tub getaway? We’d suggest visiting the official website of the Eden Project to plan your trip and make sure you make the most out of your day.
St Michael's Mount is located in Mount’s Bay. The island is still classed as a civil parish and lures in thousands of tourists per year thanks to its man-made causeway. That links it to Marazion town (although it’s only passable at low-mid tide, so don’t get stuck there).
Mount’s Bay is a great day out for groups and families. Whilst here, you’ll be able to visit the castle, gardens and village. And like the Eden Project mentioned above, we’d suggest visiting the St Michael’s Mount website to plan your trip.
A small village worth a look on the Cornwall coast, is Port Issac. Like Whitsand Bay mentioned below, this is an idyllic, picturesque and traditional fishing village, built during the Henry VIII era, and is still thriving today.
You’ll be able to explore quaint privately owned shops, pubs and admire the view from the modern sea wall. And whilst you’re there, we’d also suggest checking out Wadebridge and Camelford, or venturing to the hamlet of Port Gaverne.
One of the most overlooked beaches in Cornwall is Whitsand Bay, and that means it’s rarely overcrowded. And, it’s one of the most stunning fishing coves and beaches within walking distance from the cliffs playing home to Land’s End.
Whether you’re looking for a walk around town as a couple, or a day of beach going as a family, enjoying the swim and surf, Whitsand Bay in South East Cornwall is certainly worth the visit.
