Glamping with the added luxury of a hot tub

Even the most steadfast urbanites can’t help but be won over by the sophisticated glamping offering set in some of Devon’s most beautiful countryside. In the last ten years luxury camping has outshone it’s poorer sibling (plain old camping), by providing a solution to those who prefer their holidays in Devon’s rolling hills and woodland, surrounded by home comforts. And it’s not just home comforts on offer; for a bit of added luxury (and additional cost), glamping businesses offer sunset dips in hot tubs, Champagne on ice and top quality Westcountry food produce.
On the edge of Exmoor National Park, just a stone’s throw from some of North Devon’s best beaches, is Longlands glamping site. Their five en-suite safari tents have a king size bedroom, a twin room, and a cosy cupboard bed in the main living space. There’s also a well equipped country house style kitchen and a wood burner. The tents enjoy breath-taking views of the rolling hills and there’s even a small boating lake for guests, should they fancy a spot of rowing.
An award-winning glamping site, Longlands’ latest addition is a wooden hot tub installed by South West Spas, which drinks in the fantastic views whilst still providing privacy. Positioned on its very own deck above the lake, the wooden hot tub seats up to six people and has its very own changing room and outdoor heated shower. The hot tub is rented out by the hour; so whether you are a family, a large group or you fancy a romantic dip, for 60 minutes the hot tub is all yours to sit back, soak and relax.
All of the hot tubs South West Spas have hand-crafted or installed for customers with glamping sites or other holiday rentals, have helped to increase bookings and revenue. At South West Spas, we can provide hot tubs powered by electricity or wood fired, so being “off grid” isn’t necessarily a problem. We can advise you on the best hot tub for your needs with site visits and an installation overseen by an experienced hot tub technician.
Having run a holiday rental in the French alps with a hot tub, and regularly providing services and repairs for a large number of holiday rentals in Devon, we know what customers expect from their hot tub experience – and what you need to do to make sure your hot tub adds to your customers’ experience of your holiday let.
