We provide in-depth guides to the best getaways in the UK, and this guide covers everything you need to know about hot tub breaks in Yorkshire. We’ll be covering the best villages to visit, what to do when you’re there, and our pick for the best lodge with a hot tub.
Yorkshire is one of the most popular retreats for those looking for a UK staycation. Whether you’re looking for walking and hiking holidays making use of the Yorkshire Dales, or beach day in Scarborough, there are 100s of lodges with hot tubs within walking and driving distance of all the best attractions.
But, we understand that having this amount of choice makes booking your getaway difficult. And, that’s why we’ve spent hours researching 100s of lodges, in dozens of locations dotted throughout Yorkshire. Before jumping into the things to see and do when in Yorkshire, we’ll start with our favourite holiday lodge.
We started this site as we know how difficult it is to find a lodge with a hot tub isn’t exactly easy. Multiple times on our search we found what seemed like the idyllic lodge, only to realise a hot tub wasn’t included, or it was shared, rather than private.
For our top pick in Yorkshire, we visited well known cottage, log cabin and lodge websites, and filtered down to properties that include hot tubs. Sites included the likes of Holiday Cottages, Sykes Cottages, Expedia, Tripadvisor and Hoseasons.
After short listing a few of our favourite locations, we whittled our list down to choose the lodge with a hot tub in Yorkshire that we’d pick, if we were booking today.
White Willow Lodge is our top pick for those looking for a luxury lodge in Yorkshire, located in Harrogate, at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.
The White Willow hot tub lodge is a spacious and luxurious holiday cottage, suitable for up to 6 guests. It’s the perfect opportunity for families and small groups to breakaway from the city, and enjoy the beautiful countryside that Yorkshire has to offer. It sits on the doorstep of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is a fan favourite for walkers, hikers, bikers, golfers and those with a general love for the outdoors.
You’ll have easy access to the Victorian town of Harrogate, as well as popular towns such as Pateley Bridge, IIkley and Otley.
White WIllow hot tub lodge is one of the Yorkshire Dales very best. Unlike many of the hot tub lodges in Yorkshire we reviewed, White Willow comes with a private hot tub, and all the essentials (plus more) you’d expect to make sure your self catering holiday is everything you need it to be, including:
Looking for a hot tub lodge in Yorkshire, that sits right on the edge of the countryside, and suitable for groups of up to 6? White Willow Lodge, set in Nidderdale is the holiday cottage you need to book.
Visiting here puts you in the perfect location to explore not only the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but you’ll also look out to Washburn Valley. And, that makes this hot tub a favourite with those looking to explore woodland, forestry and moorlands via foot, bike or car.
And, there’s something for everyone within a short walk or drive. For instance the village of Otley is just 4 miles away, and is home to pubs, cafes and shops. Or, if you prefer to travel a bit further afield, the Victorian town of Harrogate is just 10 miles away.
Ready to book up your hot tub break, but want to know what else there is to see and do around this part of the Yorkshire Dales? Groups and families will have plenty to do, especially those that enjoy walking, hiking, or simply being outdoors.
Popular places to visit within reasonable reach of the holiday lodge include:
Whilst we’ve spent a lot time researching hot tub lodges in Yorkshire, our top pick isn’t the only one you should consider. Maybe you need smaller accommodation for a romantic retreat, or are looking at holiday destinations that are in Yorkshire, but aren’t necessarily in the Yorkshire Dales? There’s plenty of holiday lodges available here including those suitable for:
The question is, besides the Yorkshire Dales, where are the best places to stay? Here are some ideas for inspiration:
Whether you’re looking for a quaint town break in Harrogate, or looking to explore the outdoors by making the most out of the Yorkshire Dales; there’s a tonne of things to see and do on your Yorkshire hot tub break.
Enjoy walking? Hiking? Cycling? Golf and fishing? There’s something here for everyone, and here are some of our favourite things to do when visiting Yorkshire.
For people booking hot tub breaks in Yorkshire, they’re usually booking up to make the most out of the walks and hikes on offer.
And, the walks on offer vary in length. For the adventurers out there, there’s the combined Pennine Journey (Pennine Way, Coast to Coast and Bridleway) which is around 100-270 miles in total. However, there are shorter walks in the form of Lady Anne’s Way, Herriot Way, and Dales Way.
The Yorkshire Dales is also one of the locations of the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, where people aim to complete 24 miles in 12 hours across Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent.
Prefer to switch your walking boots for beach sandals? We’d suggest heading for Whitby, one of the most popular coastal resorts in the UK.
Spend a day wandering Whitby Abbey and cobbled streets, and end it with a relaxing afternoon on the beach, or walk around the harbour (which is still working to this day).
Not within driving distance of Whitby on your hot tub retreat? Head to Robin Hood’s Bay instead, located in North Yorkshire.
Whitby is certainly the most popular and well known parts of Yorkshire’s coastline, but it’s not necessarily the best. Many traditional fishing villages (Robin Hood’s Bay included), get overlooked. And, what that means, is they tend to be a lot quieter; perfect for couples looking for a romantic weekend away.
And if you’re planning to book a holiday lodge here, they’re are some luxury cottages on offer that overlook the sea.
Looking to combine a bit of culture with some stunning architecture? The place you need to visit is York Minster, Deangate.
York Minster is the 2nd biggest Gothic cathedral in the whole of Northern Europe. The works on York Minster began in 1230, and were finished in 1472. And, that timeline is reflected in the variance of design and building methods used throughout.
