So from treehouses and shepherds huts to safari tents and yurts, here are 25 amazing glamping holidays with a hot tub in the North West.
Price per night: From £155 for 2 people
Location: Lorton, Cumbria
Why stay here: Somewhere that would not look out of place in a remote part of Scotland, Hinterlandes Cabin is what glamping is all about. From a marble-clad wet room and contemporary brass fittings to ash flooring and ash worktops, this cabin is nothing short of stunning. However, perhaps my favourite thing about the cabin is the large panoramic window that frames the view of the woods outside perfectly. Venture beyond the window and you’ll find a raised decking and seating area for dining al fresco by the fire pit. And of course, here is where you can also sit back in your private wood-fired hot tub.
What guests say: “Hinterlandes is the perfect place to get away and take in the beautiful Lake District. It has everything you need for a relaxing break. The bus conversion has been completed to an amazing standard. Everything has been thought about. The plus of having a hot tub was fantastic and really adds something special to your stay.”
Price per night: From £90 for 2 people
Location: Frodsham, Cheshire
Why stay here: You’ve probably seen a fair few glamping pods in your time. They’re one of the most popular glamping options out there because they’re usually pretty cheap. But Lady Heyes Pods are more than just your typical glamping pods because they all come complete with their own private hot tub. Book one of their Superior or Deluxe Pods if you want a little more luxury, or opt for their Original or Windsor Pods if you want to save some pennies! No matter which you opt for, they all benefit from the luxury of a private hot tub so you can soak to your heart’s content.
What guests say: “Absolutely stunning pod, spacious as well as nice and clean. All staff very helpful and polite. Hot tub amazing, especially at night with the LED lights! The clubhouse is very elegant, the tea rooms have a large variety of cakes as well as serving breakfast and afternoon teas, at the other end of the clubhouse is a well-stocked bar!”
Price per night: From £200 for 6 people
Location: Scorton, Lancashire
Why stay here: Fancy relaxing in that hot tub above with all your nearest and dearest? Yep, I thought so. If that alone isn’t making you rush to book a stay here, I’ll give you some more reasons why Wyresdale Park Safari Tents are worth booking a stay at. Firstly, Wyresdale is proud to host the poshest of all the Feather Down tent range. We’re talking bespoke made kitchens, large living room space, and gleaming new wood-fired hot tubs. Not only that but the tents are also set in beautiful mature woodland overlooking a private lake. Views don’t get much better than this!
What guests say: “Utter bliss!!! If I could live in these tents forever I would, the views are breathtaking yet close enough to everything you could need, we overlooked the lake so hired a boat, even the damp weather couldn’t ruin things, Neil was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed – I can’t recommend this place enough! Just perfect.”
Price per night: From £240 for 6 people
Location: Penrith, Cumbria
Why stay here: Featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, The Lodge at Edenhall Estate is what cabin dreams are made of. It’s basically cabin porn on steroids. As soon as you arrive, you’ll be quickly transported from the Lake District to the remote alpine forests of Canada. A great place to stay with family or a big group of friends, the cabin sleeps up to six guests. The central living space benefits from a log burner, a fully equipped kitchen. dining space and ample cosy seating for board games, book reading and afternoon naps. And of course, you can’t forget the hot tub which is set in the decking itself.
What guests say: “The setting simply takes your breath away, you feel like you could be in a Canadian alpine forest, completely secluded and teeming with wildlife. We whiled away hours sat on the deck with our binoculars looking out for the infamous otters, with resident kingfishers, woodpeckers and herons popping past all the time. We enjoyed a brisk plunge in the river, followed by warming up in the hot tub, and comfy sofas in front of the log-burner.”
Price per night: From £170 for 2 people
Location: Penrith, Cumbria
Why stay here: Situated on the same estate as The Lodge you’ll find the Bothy at High Barn. Inside you’ll find art prints and eclectic furniture in abundance. The white roll-top bath is a great addition too, as are the two cosy log burners and the huge hand-carved bed that just screams a good night’s sleep. Stepping outside, the story is much the same. Aside from the wood-fired hot tub, my favourite piece of outdoor furniture is the stargazer bed. I’m not sure what’s more idyllic: stargazing in a hot tub or stargazing from your outdoor bed snuggled up in a blanket.
What guests say: “We had the best stay at The Bothy! A place which is even better in person than in the pictures, inside the decor is great… really unique. The amenities provided are brill and the bedroom with a lovely bath looking across the views is perfect. We didn’t realise how secluded The Bothy would be, surrounded by fields it’s just ideal for a relaxing break away.”
Price per night: From £120 for 2 people
Location: Barnoldswick, Lancashire
Why stay here: If Copy House Hideaway Shepherds Huts don’t look appealing to you then I’m not sure what will. Home to two beautifully appointed shepherds huts, a staycation doesn’t get much more romantic than a stay at Copy House Hideaway. The huts are filled with all kinds of luxuries, such as a Krups coffee machine, Lloydloom dining chairs, Abraham Moon fabrics and hotel grade pocket sprung mattresses. Next door you’ll find an adjoining log cabin with an indoor seating area and wood-fired hot tub. Absolute bliss if you ask me. Enjoy a dip while soaking up the panoramic long-distance views – you won’t regret it!
What guests say: “We did not want to come home! Wish we’d booked a week. Everything about these huts is just perfect, the owners Phil and Lisa have literally thought of everything. The welcome hamper of a drink of your choice and homemade biscuits was a lovely treat, plus the added extras of bread, milk, coffee etc. The huts themselves are beautifully done. The views from the hot tub are out of this world, the sunsets were breathtaking.”
Price per night: From £85 for 2 people
Location: Carnforth, Lancashire
Why stay here: Spacious and pretty budget-friendly, booking a stay in one of Fell View Park’s Pods is a no-brainer really! A stay here will involve long hot tub dips, countryside walks, and picnics galore, which sounds like the perfect recipe for a weekend away if you ask me. These pods are far from the pods you’re probably used to seeing – they’re more like luxurious holiday homes. Inside you’ll find a fully-fitted kitchen, living area, king-size bed, widescreen TV, wood-burning stove, and an en-suite. You really can’t ask for much more! (Well, aside from your own private hot tub, that is. But don’t worry they deliver on that front too!)
What guests say: “We spent three nights here staying in the Wandales Escape pod. This was our second visit here and the team continue to maintain a very high standard of quality interiors, BBQ, deck with outdoor furniture and a wonderful hot tub. The small kitchen has everything you need for a short stay and we thoroughly enjoyed the benefit of the wood burner.”
Price per night: From £150 for 4 people
Location: Clawthorpe, Lancashire
Why stay here: Kelker Well is all about sustainability. It’s important to the owner, Adele, that her roundhouse is off-grid, and supports the environment and local people wherever possible! But you shouldn’t just visit Kelker Well for its sustainable credentials. This gorgeous roundhouse warrants a visit of its own accord! Not only is the interior beautiful but it also boasts everything you could need to have a really special stay. From a tasty brunch of bread, jam and Whin Yeats Farm eggs and cheese, to guidebooks, books, and games galore, there’s plenty to keep you busy. And when you do go outside you’ll be rewarded by long hot tub dips, hammock snoozes, and spectacular views.
What guests say: “What can I say about this place? It’s absolutely amazing! Totally unique because it’s completely on its own. The wood-fired hot tub is AMAZING! I’m not usually a fan of hot tubs because of all the chemicals and the fact that the water isn’t changed for months on end. This one, however… fresh water each time, no nasty chemicals, so comfortable to sit in and best of all: it heats up really quickly. The roundhouse itself is perfect: spacious but still cosy.”
Price per night: From £185 for 3 people
Location: Burton, Cheshire
Why stay here: Lazy Bear Hideaway Cabin is easily one of my favourite places to go glamping with a hot tub in the North West. I mean, just look at it! If this cabin doesn’t just scream ‘cosy’ then I don’t know what will. It’s safe to say that I’d be chuffed with a stay here no matter rain or shine. In the sunshine, you can explore your surroundings (a private lake, woodlands and open fields) and in rain, you can curl up inside in front of the log-burning stove. And the best bit is that you can relax in the steamy wood-fired hot tub or on the covered porch either way!
What guests say: “Gorgeous. Magical. Stunning. Unforgettable. Quirky. Historical. Relaxed are just a few words I would use to describe this beautiful place. The host is wonderful and it is clear a lot of thought and effort has gone into making this place what it is.”
10. Thornfield Pods
Price per night: From £85 for 2 people
Location: Dalston, Cumbria
Why stay here: Providing a warm welcome for you, your kids and even your four-legged friends, Thornfield is a great place to take all the family. Each pod is well-equipped with all the home comforts you could wish for. There’s a full bathroom-separate shower cubicle, toilet and sink, underfloor heating, a country style kitchen with a Belfast sink, induction hob, fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster in each pod. You can choose between extra-large pods which sleep four adults and large pods which sleep two adults. And you have the option of adding a hot tub to each pod too!
What guests say: “Peaceful, friendly, perfectly situated little glamping site. They have everything covered for the adults, the children and even the dogs. The loveliest couple and nothing was too much trouble. The logs were super dry so lighting the night fire was easy and as for sitting in the hot tub watching the view – delightful.”
Price per night: From £69 for 2 people
Location: Clitheroe, Lancashire
Why stay here: Although Hedgerow Glamping Pods have the name ‘pods’ in their name, these pods are more akin to small cabins. And not just cabins – ridiculously luxurious cabins! Think underfloor heating, a Bluetooth speaker system, an interactive TV, a built-in wine cooler, a Krups coffee maker, a dishwasher, and an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower and heated towel rail. And of course, that’s not even to mention your private hot tub! This really is the height of luxury. You can even pay a little extra for a fire pit package, breakfast pack, and even proposal/honeymoon packages.
What guests say: “Hedgerow really is a cut above the rest. The effort Hilary puts into these pods and the site is evident from the moment you drive in. The pods are set around a small pond, and are all really private and well set out with parking right outside. Hilary also leaves some really brilliant extras including local gin and homemade truffles. The best part was the fresh eggs from the hens on site and the chance to collect your own from the hutch!”
Price per night: From £125 for 2 people
Location: Penrith, Cumbria
Why stay here: Sitting comfortably down by the pond with views over the farm to the Pennines, the best word to describe Crake Trees Manor Shepherds Huts would be ‘picturesque’. These two gorgeous shepherds huts and their accompanying wood-fired hot tubs really are a little slice of paradise. The huts themselves are totally off-grid and a little simpler than some of the other glamping holidays with a hot tub in the North West. But this just means that they allow you to get even closer to nature!
What guests say: “The hut is so cosy and beautifully furnished. We enjoyed a really peaceful evening with great views and a fantastic night’s sleep. We also hired the hot tub for the evening which was so relaxing. Ruth delivered a delicious breakfast basket the next day.”
Price per night: From £130 for 2 people
Location: Dalston, Carlisle
Why stay here: Whether you fancy going away with the family, a group of friends or with your partner, Pasturewood has you covered. But my personal favourite place to stay here is in one of their romantic pods for two. Separate from the main pods you’ll find the Quiet Pasture, a part of the site specially designed for couples who want to enjoy a private, luxury break in the countryside. Three of the Quiet Pasture pods include a two-person outdoor wood-fired hot tub, while one lets you enjoy the views from an indoor luxury copper bath. Each has a star-gazing window too to make your stay extra romantic!
What guests say: “Just home from a weekend stay and cannot recommend this place enough! We stayed in the Fell View Pod, it was immaculate and had everything we needed. The hot tub was ready for us when we arrived and had lots of supplies to keep it going all weekend. The site itself is so well kept.”
14. Silva Treehouse
Price per night: From £345 for 6 people
Location: Penrith, Carlisle
Why stay here: If you’re planning a glamping holiday with a hot tub in the North West with a larger group of people, Silva Treehouse will be right up your street. It might be on the more expensive side, but I promise this large holiday home is worth every penny. (As are the sunsets!) This multi-level treehouse houses everything from king-size beds to a mountain-view hot tub to a games room reached by a slide. And all these luxuries are accompanied by ridiculously beautiful interiors that I just can’t get enough of!
What guests say: “Silva Treehouse is a magnificent home-grown masterpiece! It’s big, beautiful and full of all the charm. Grant and Lucy’s hard work has made it what it is; expert craftmanship, fun and playful features and those kinds of aspirational interiors you will want to recreate at home.”
Price per night: From £125 for 2 people
Location: Lower Withington, Cheshire
Why stay here: Welltrough Hall Farm Woodland Hut is easily one of my favourite places to go glamping with a hot tub in the North West for that spacious decking alone. I mean, evenings don’t get much better than dining alfresco before heading for a long dip in the hot tub with a glass of bubbly in hand! Oh, and did I mention that the views are unreal too? However, this hut is so much more than its surroundings. Inside, the adult-only hut is beautifully furnished to the highest standard, with a double bed, kitchen, TV, ensuite, and so much more! Get me here pronto.
What guests say: “It was just perfect. The wood-fired hot tub is the most romantic touch, and the views from the hot tub, and even the bed are just phenomenal. It had everything we needed… a comfy bed, a TV with Netflix, heating, a beautiful outdoor seating area, I honestly couldn’t fault it! It is so quiet and secluded, and the place was also SPOTLESS!”
Price per night: From £75 for 6 people
Location: Kendal, Cumbria
Why stay here: Next up we have Long Valley Yurts. I’ll start by saying don’t you already wish you could jump into the gorgeous wood-fired hot tub above? Looks pretty idyllic to me. Another great reason to stay here is that yurts offer one of the more rustic, back-to-nature glamping experiences. Each yurt is furnished with a distinctly Moroccan feel with woollen rugs, bright colourful throws, twinkling fairy lights, solar lighting and a large skylight, perfect for evenings spent stargazing. Inside you’ll also find a games chest, full of games retro and new, so you can disconnect from technology and get a little competitive too!
What guests say: “The best glamping holiday we’ve ever had. We got it as a last-minute cancellation and was the best decision we could have made. Two young boys absolutely loved it, they were in their element. It was lovely even when it rained – we sat inside played games and had the fire on. 5* will definitely be back.”
Price per night: From £55 for 2 people
Location: Water, Lancashire
Why stay here: Rossendale Holiday Glamping Pods is one of the two cheapest places to go glamping with a hot tub in the North West. With prices starting from only £55 a night, booking a stay here is pretty much a no-brainer. And the best bit is that despite them being cheap, they’re far more than just cheerful! Unfortunately, only one of the pods on-site comes complete with its own private hot tub and that bad boy is Falcon. This family pod sleeps up to four people and benefits from its own shower and toilet, living area, a double bed and a sofa bed. On-site you’ll also find a cafe bar, gift shop, and a games room.
What guests say: “Staff on site were extremely friendly and helpful. We ordered breakfast bacon barmcakes that were delivered hot and with sauce to our rooms. They have a small selection of food to choose from, which is very reasonable in price and can be delivered to your room or pod. Lovely and quiet on site, towels were of good quality and they also have hairdryers.”
Price per night: From £150 for 2 people
Location: Keswick, Cumbria
Why stay here: Easily one of my favourite glamping holidays with a hot tub in the North West, The Stag Shepherds Hut is nothing short of gorgeous. With unparalleled views of the Lake District countryside and a beautifully decorated interior, you won’t be able to decide whether you want to spend most of your time here inside or outside. Inside you’ll find a large king-size bed, cosy sofa, wood-burner, well-equipped kitchen with a kettle, toaster and gas hobs, and a modern en-suite bathroom. And outside, the wood-fired bath makes a perfect spot for lying back and taking in the views (or glorious night skies if you go for a late-night bath!). Set under a thick oak tree, you won’t find a spot more picturesque than this.
What guests say: “From the moment we arrived we were in love! Beautiful views, beautiful cabin! The hosts were fantastic, beforehand I contacted them to tell them it was a getaway for my boyfriends 30th birthday, they left balloons and a banner up and a bottle of Prosecco out for us to celebrate! The place itself is stunning and the hut is so spacious and the comforts like the huge sofa are lovely after a long walk, like home from home!”
Price per night: From £55 for 4 people
Location: Langho, Lancashire
Why stay here: For the most budget-friendly glamping holiday with a hot tub in the North West, book a stay at Wigwam Holidays Ribble Valley. With prices starting from just £13.75 a person a night, you won’t find anything cheaper than this. (Well, with a hot tub, that is!) Ribble Valley is a beautiful rural location that provides the perfect backdrop to your glamping holiday. The eight luxury pods comprise a double bed, sofa bed, kitchenette, dining table, and ensuite. And outside you’ll also find your own private BBQ and seating area so you can enjoy the scenery while dining alfresco!
What guests say: “This site is just perfect and the views are fantastic. The wigwams themselves have fantastic facilities, everything you need for breaks all year round. Get a wigwam with a hot tub if you can, it’s well worth it. The site is so quiet, all we could hear was the wood crackling as it burned to heat up the hot tub – so serene and blissful. It was our second visit and hope it won’t be the last.”
Price per night: From £137 for 2 people
Location: Bartington, Cheshire
Why stay here: Tucked away in recently landscaped private gardens alongside the River Weaver in the Cheshire countryside, this Shepherd’s Hut is one of my favourite places to go glamping in Cheshire. These surroundings are seriously picturesque! Despite the wood-fired hot tub, picnic table, and two benches outside, you’ll have a hard time being pulled away from the hut because it’s just that beautiful. The hut houses everything you could need and more, including a kitchen, dining table, and double bed. Your private toilet and shower room is just a stone’s throw away, but believe me, it’s worth the walk!
What guests say: “Expect a beautiful space in the most stunning scenery, with so much more space than you see in the photos and amazing facilities available. Barbara and David are exceptional hosts who couldn’t do enough. The most thoughtful touches are included and it is maintained and cleaned beautifully – I am obsessed with cleanliness and this was 5*.”
Price per night: From £100 for 2 people
Location: Lorton, Cumbria
Why stay here: Remember the cabin at the beginning of the post? Well, the owners of that gorgeous cabin own a converted bus too. What a dream! The bus is an imported American Community bus with a VW t25 welded to the top. An electric mix of features, you could easily spend hours just exploring all the bus’ nooks and crannies. Some things to look out for are the reclaimed oak strip flooring from a Birmingham school, door handles salvaged from the famous Hempel Hotel, 1950’s bulk headlights salvaged from a German cargo ship, cupboard doors from the Natural History Museum and a vintage anglepoise machinist light. Phew, that’s a lot.
What guests say: “We had a wonderful, cosy, two nights in this truly unique accommodation! The stove and the hot tub fire were roaring away when we arrived and we were greeted by the friendly owners who had laid out a nice little hamper of essentials before leaving us to enjoy the secluded spot alone with only sheep for company.”
Price per night: From £98 for 8 people
Location: Greystoke, Cumbria
Why stay here: Ullswater Heights Safari Tents take ‘heights’ to a whole new level. I’ve never seen a safari tent with a second level before! Sleeping eight people, the safari tent is ideal for larger family or friend getaways and you can bring your furry friends along too. The open-plan living space comes complete with a wall-mounted Smart TV and wood burner, which leads onto a kitchen with fridge/freezer and four-ring electric hob. When you arrive you’ll be welcomed by tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits. The perfect way to get your stay off to a great start! Outside, the safari tent has a decking area with gated access, along with quality outdoor furniture and an outdoor hot tub.
What guests say: “The eight-person duplex safari tent was far more than we imagined/envisaged. The tent was spotless when we arrived. Plenty of towels, complimentary robes to cover up when escaping the hot tub on the decking. Quiet location and relatively new. The restaurant and bar were top-notch, staff were fantastic, very welcoming.”
Price per night: From £100 for 4 people
Location: Clitheroe, Lancashire
Why stay here: Little Oakhurst Yurts allow you to get closer to nature in the best way possible. But don’t worry, you won’t have to compromise on comfort here. This oh-so-cosy retreat for two has romance written all over it, from a chunky wooden double bed and cosy woollen blankets to twinkling fairy lights and a wood-burning stove for crackly log fires. And just next door you’ll find your own private shower, roll-top bath. If you’re somehow still not persuaded to book a stay here, maybe the on-site alpacas will do the trick? Yep, you can not only go say hi to them but also lead them on a trail around the farm!
What guests say: “Booked Little Oakhurst for my partners birthday, Joanne kindly decorated the yurt before we arrived. The yurt was spacious and had everything you could need – a portable heater, log burner, kettle, blankets, electric blankets – the list is endless! The hot tub was a great addition. The private bathroom was spacious and toiletries were provided.”
Price per night: From £100 for 6 people
Location: Lower Green Bank, Lancaster
Why stay here: Dolphinholme Farm Safari Tents will take you far from the North West, straight to the plains of South Africa. (Well, almost – I can’t guarantee the good weather…) But no matter whether the weather is on your side or not, you’re guaranteed a great time here, not least because these safari tents aren’t harsh on your bank account. Especially great for families, the farm is a fantastic natural playground for all ages. Expect both indoor and outdoor play areas and ample opportunities for den-building in the deciduous woodland. The tents themselves are ridiculously spacious, comprising a double bed, bunk bed, cupboard bed, a kitchen, sofa, dining table, and an ensuite. You’ll have to pay a bit extra for your wood-fired hot tub, but it’s worth every penny!
What guests say: “Fabulous escape! Beautiful site with a goat farm, a river you can swim in and peaceful countryside all around. Freshly laid eggs that you can pick yourself every morning! Lovely shop that has all the basics covered. The tent was well equipped and had a real sense of rustic charm. Our wood-fired hot tub was wonderful. So was the lovely shower.”
25. Evelyn Wagon
Price per night: From £75 for 2 people
Location: Lockhills, Carlisle
Why stay here: Last but by no means least, we have the quirky Evelyn Wagon! Set on a stunning location right on the banks of the River Eden, the wagon is kept away from the outside world. Of course, you can enjoy these views from the comfort of your own wood-fired outdoor Japanese bath hot tub. Taking inspiration from Japanese bathing culture where the focus is as much on relaxing the body as washing, this large deep 600-litre bathing tub allows you to uniquely immerse your whole body without lying down. It also has an armchair style design so two adults can sit side by side. Cool, right?!
What guests say: “We stayed for two nights in Evelyn the gypsy caravan with our little dog. What a lovely friendly and relaxing place to stay. We had a lovely few hours in the wood-burning hot tub, used the barbecue and fire pit both evenings. We had two of the best nights of sleep. Steve and his daughter met us when we arrived and both very helpful.”
