Ahead of National Hot Tub Day on 28 March, we’ve rounded up our top 10 holiday cottages in the Brecon Beacons with hot tubs. From quirky hot tubs shaped like teacups to hot tubs where you can relax in the water with a spectacular view across the national park, you’ll find them all in our guide.
Hot tubs have unsurprisingly hugely increased in popularity over recent years. After all, there’s little more luxurious or relaxing than soaking in the soothing bubbles, especially after a busy day exploring the local sights.
Whether you’re wanting to enjoy a hot tub with friends on a long summer night with a glass of wine in hand, or warm up on a chilly morning with your loved one on a romantic winter break, we have the perfect hot tub holiday for you.
The one shaped like a teacup: Trewyn Coach House
Sleeps 7 + 2 dogs
Without a doubt one of the quirkiest hot tubs in the Brecon Beacons, at Trewyn Coach House you can relax in a giant teacup. We bet that’s a new one for your bucket list!
Alongside the quirky wood-fired hot tub, there’s a beautifully converted coach house that sleeps seven, set within mature gardens at the foot of the Black Mountains near Abergavenny.
The one surrounded by trees: Under the Lime Tree
Sleeps 2 + 1 dog
A beautiful hot tub, a beautiful view, and a beautiful cottage to match; this detached lodge is just perfect for a romantic escape. Trees line the property, giving it a private escape-from-it-all feel.
Take breakfast on the enclosed veranda, and enjoy days out exploring the national park, before evenings back at the lodge in the hot tub soaking up the views of the mountains.
The one that’s an excavator bucket: The Hot Tub Hideaway
Quirky barely covers this fabulous hot tub – it's a wood-fired tub created from the bucket of a 30-tonne excavator machine! Now, that’s an unusual place to relax at the end of a busy day! And the unique hot tub is perfectly complemented with unique accommodations.
Set in the ancient hay meadows of the Welsh border, these hand-crafted shepherds’ huts are charmingly rustic, with wrought-iron details, reused scaffold boards, and antique furnishings. Perfect for a romantic break, The Hot Tub Hideaway offers total privacy for evenings in the hot tub and around the fire pit.
The one that’s next to an army truck: Big Daf
The wood-fired hot tub may not be particularly quirky, but the property that it's part of sure is: Big Daf is a converted army truck! Sleeping two adults and two children, this eccentric holiday home is sure to delight adventurers, big and small.
Have your morning coffee in the truck’s cab, and dinner alfresco under the stars on the picnic table. Set within fields (filled with friendly neighbours comprising cows, sheep, and goats), you’re guaranteed peaceful evenings to relax in your private hot tub.
The one that brings you closer to nature: Tub for Two
Step back in time and enjoy the rustic charm of this beautifully converted railway carriage and its matching rustic wood-fired tub.
Set in a totally secluded private location, surrounded by ancient wildflower meadows, it’s an idyllic romantic retreat for couples who want an off-grid digital detox. Enjoy lazy days relaxing in the hammock reading books and enjoying the peace, and romantic date nights in the spring-water-filled metal hot tub.
The one with spectacular Black Mountain views: Penydre Farm Cottage
If you like to sit back in a hot tub while admiring an amazing view, then Penydre Farm Cottage is the one for you! Hop into the hot tub morning, noon, and night to make the most of the incredible outlook over the Black Mountains. And to match the wonderful hot tub, there’s a wonderful holiday home.
This gorgeous, traditional cottage has been updated with a stunning, contemporary twist, perfect for a family holiday in the Brecon Beacons.
The one that’s hidden: The Fron
Sleeps 10 + 2 dogs
At first glance, you may not spot the hot tub hidden away under the terrace, but it’s the perfect place to escape it all and relax whilst appreciating the incredible views across the Brecon Beacons. The Fron is a large and luxurious property that’s perfect for a party.
There are endless walks straight from the front door, but it may take some convincing to get your gang to leave this wonderful holiday home, with its hot tub, sauna, games room, and terrace with spectacular views!
The one that’s inside: Llys Faen
Sleeps 8 + 2 dogs
If you hate the chilly flip-flop and towel-wearing run between the hot tub and your home, you’ll love Llys Faen with its indoor hot tub. Dating back to the 1800s, this lovingly converted barn offers bags of traditional character with a modern twist.
Situated close to the banks of the River Wye and the book town of Hay-on-Wye, you’ll find plenty to do for the whole family, before spending nights curled up in front of the wood burner or soaking in the hot tub.
The one on top of a hill: Great Escape Farm
Sleeps 10 + 2 dogs
For soaking in the views whilst soaking in the bubbles, you won’t want to miss an escape at Great Escape Farm. These impressive holiday homes are a gorgeous retreat in an equally impressive location.
Nestled into the hillside, the farmhouse and the barn have been restored with every luxury in mind. With plenty of social space inside and a snug with a games console perfect for teenagers, you can let the kids entertain themselves while you hit the hot tub.
The one where you can take the whole gang: The Hay House Retreat
Sleeps 18 + 5 dogs
If your requirement for a hot tub holiday is that the whole gang can come with you to relax in the bubbles, then you won’t be disappointed in The Hay House Retreat – it sleeps 18 and welcomes five dogs. Surely room for the largest of family or friendship groups!
This 17th-century farmhouse is set within 5 acres of landscaped grounds, in which you’ll find a wood-fired hot tub. Now, you may not be able to fit all 18 of you in it at the same time but no one will be left out, as the property also comes with a play area and an undercover games barn. Let the kids loose in there and you can enjoy a little peace and quiet relaxing in the bubbles with a glass of something cold.
