Additional information for Pods with hot tubs

What's included with the wood-fired hot tubs:

  • Your own exclusive use - hot tubs are right outside your accommodation.
  • Fresh fill of the hot tub before you arrive (not like others where you share the previous guests’ water). The hot tubs are cleaned and sanitised between each guest stay prior to filling.
  • Firewood/fuel, firelighters & matches - enough for 2-3 hours bathing time.
  • Depending on the time of year, the water takes 1.5 - 2.5 hours to heat up, so simply light the firebox before your BBQ and it will be ready for an evening's relaxation.

The latest time we undertake hot tub inductions is 8pm. If you arrive after that, you won't be able to use your hot tub until the following day. The minimum age for the hot tub is 5 years old; under-14s must be supervised by an adult. Only plastic drinking glasses are to be used when bathing, so please bring some along. A maximum of 4 people are allowed per tub or congregating around the  pods. There is a £10 charge for guests from other cabins using the hot tub and this needs to be pre-arranged with us. During freezing conditions, the hot tubs may not be available - this is rare, but if does occur we'll refund you your hot tub fee.

Wood fired hot tubs take between 1.5hrs - 2.5hrs to heat up. Once lit they require topping up with fuel every 30 mins until they reach the required temperature.

Hot Tub Pre-lighting Service £15.00
Our prelighting service will light your wood fired hot tub 1.5hrs prior to your stated arrival time. We'll then top it up after 30 mins and then again when you arrive. Leaving you to finish off the final bit of heating up the hot tub when you are settling in and unpacking.

It is REALLY IMPORTANT that you provide as accurate as possible an arrival time so that the hot tub is not lit too early or too late. The earliest time we can pre-light a hot tub for you is 2pm.  Once you select the hot tub pre-lighting option with your booking, we'll email you to confirm your arrival time.
You can advise us of any change to your arrival time up to 7pm the day prior to arrival - (sorry but we can't amend after this time).

Whilst dogs are permitted in the Jumbo Pods, they must not be allowed to enter the hot tub enclosure.  Sorry, but we don't accept dogs in the Posh Pods or Ridge Pods.
