To make your glamping holiday that extra bit special, why not book a glampsite with a hot tub?

The perfect way to unwind and relax after a long day of exploring. Pop open a bottle 🍾, put your swimmers on (or don’t 😉!) and hop on in and let the warm, bubbly water soothe those achey limbs. Also the perfect place for a bit of stargazing in the dark night sky ⭐ 🔭 

Different Types of Hot Tubs

There are two main types of outdoor hot tubs, wood-fired or electric.

Glamping with a Wood-Fired Hot Tub.

To use a wood-fired hot tub, you will need to collect a fair amount of wood and light a fire. The warmth from the fire will heat the water inside the tub, through a series of metal pipes inside the wooden barrel.

Although this process is a little more time-consuming than pressing a button on an electric hot tub, there are many reasons to choose a wood-fired tub over an electric one!

Firstly, wood-fired tubs tend to be a bit more aesthetically pleasing than plastic coasted electric numbers.

They are also up to 6 times more powerful, meaning you're likely to have your tub nice and toasty, much more quickly.

As wood is a renewable energy source, it also makes a wood-fired option much more eco-friendly than it's electric counterparts.

Here are a few of our favourite glamping spots with a wood-fired hot tub in the UK!

Glamping with an Electric Hot Tub

An electric hot tub is a lot easier to use and maintain.

To heat an electric tub, you'll just need to press a few buttons and sit back and wait for it to heat up.

Electric tubs have built-in heaters and electronic thermostats which are designed to cut off the heat, if the water gets too hot. Wood-fired hot tubs do not have this feature, meaning they can get extremely hot inside!
