We’ve got a secret to tell you. There are many of life’s pleasures to be enjoyed here in the Cotswolds, and many of these pleasures are the simple ones. From the melodic sounds of songbird in the morning and the view of late afternoon light glistening on the lake’s surface to the smell of old books in our log cabin libraries. But our favourite simple pleasure has to be that cold, tantalising feeling as we tiptoe across the icy decking to enjoy the bubbling heat of the hot tub in winter. The perfect cold weather contrast. And that’s our secret for hopeless romantics…..our lodges with hot tubs make the perfect romantic getaway and here are 5 reasons why.
1. Because It Makes Winter Magical
This is our favourite time of year for a hot tub holiday here on our lake. Winter offers frosty views from our outdoor wooden hot tubs…..with the possibility of snow. Can you think of anything more romantic? And because our cabins are authentically Finnish, each with its own traditional wood burner inside, you can enjoy cosying up after a long dip in the tub.
2. It’s the Best Place to Spot Wildlife
Being so close to nature is romantic in such a primitive way. And from our outdoor hot tubs, which are seamlessly set into the decking overlooking the lake, you’ll have the best views of the wildlife around you including the resident otters who love to paddle around early in the morning. Just don’t forget to pick up the binoculars from inside your cabin for a closer look…
3. You’ll be Right on the Water’s Edge
Each of our log cabins are designed with a hot tub right on the lake’s edge, so you can enjoy breath-taking views. And because we use traditional Finnish hot tubs that are heated to a blissful 39°C and stay at a constant temperature, you can hop in and out all day long. You’ll even have your own jetty and private rowing boat, perfect for some romantic lake exploration or a picnic.
4. Sunsets are Out of This World
There’s one thing you won’t be able to get enough of here in the Cotswolds and that’s the incredible sunsets. Our cabins are all thoughtfully dotted around our lake so you’ll have all the privacy you need for a hot tub sunset moment. Let us help you get champagne and chocolates arranged on arrival too if you want to add that extra special touch. If you’re looking for a magical way to propose or a way to make some unforgettable memories, our water’s edge log cabins are perfect for you and the one you love.
5. Our Hot Tub Holidays are Eco Friendly
For those eco warriors out there or just anyone who likes eco-friendly holidays, our traditional Finnish hot tubs (like the rest of our reserve) are built to be kind to the environment. Not only can you enjoy guilt-free luxury spa indulgence with the most incredible lake views, but you’ll also fall in love with our unspoilt nature reserve, a special place that has been landscaped and maintained by our family team with love and kindness for over 30 years. We’ve created a peaceful environment for our guests, so there really is no better way to enjoy the Cotswolds than on our beautiful lake. And the hot tub is a must for lovebirds or honeymoon couples!
