Types of Pet Friendly Hot Tub Breaks in the UK

Cottages With Hot Tubs

You will find the vast majority of dog friendly holidays with hot tub onsite are either lodges or log cabins.

There are plenty of dog friendly cottages with hot tubs, but there is far more available in the luxury lodge sector.

The main difference between cottage holiday homes and a log cabin retreat is the first option will usually be more suited to a family and more home from home. The hot tub cottages have usually been somebodies home at one point and later transformed into a holiday let.

They can be found in bustling villages or on secluded farmland, and there is usually only one available to rent.

Lodges with Hot Tubs

Over the last ten years, there has been a massive influx of dog friendly lodges with hot tubs coming into the UK holiday market.

Before then, it was almost unheard of to find these wooden Scandinavian type log cabins and very few included a private hot tub.

Now they are becoming the number one choice for staycations across the UK. Log cabins with hot tubs can usually be found on holiday parks and private land and can often be booked by groups as availability is not a problem.

We have seen holiday parks with over a one hundred dog friendly log cabins and all with private hot tubs.

Most are ground floor accommodation, somewhat secluded and private, making these chalets make the perfect pet friendly hot tub retreat.

What to Expect

You can expect to find facilities like an enclosed garden or patio with these properties and they are usually not on holiday parks. In contrast, holidays with hot tubs are found in larger parks and are perfect for couples or small families.

At DFG we dig out the best hot tub breaks across the UK.
