If you’re searching for a heavenly hot tub holiday spot, then Devon holds the key. Framed by the sea on both the north and south sides, and bursting with beautiful sandy beaches, quirky seaside towns and rugged moorland, this jewel of a county is ripe for exploring.
However, you may well prefer to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the area’s famous sunshine from the comfort of the private hot tub back at your charming holiday cottage. We couldn’t think of a better way to soak up the relaxed atmosphere of the South West.
As well as being perfectly picturesque, plenty of Devon’s hot tub holiday lodges also come complete with swimming pools, sun-kissed decking areas and large gardens. Some are even dog-friendly if you’re planning on bringing your four-legged friend along for the holiday. For a hot tub break in Devon, look no further than Lodges with Hot Tubs.
