It’s hard to believe that, just a stone’s throw away from busy cities such as Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Sunderland, you can find some of the most stunning countryside and rugged peaks in the whole of the UK. From the sweeping sandy beaches of the Northumberland coast, to the wild beauty of the North Pennines, this is a unique place to enjoy a hot tub holiday in every season.
No trip to the North East is complete without an excursion through the North Pennines - a registered UNESCO World Heritage Site and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. By day, you can ramble through the picturesque hay meadows, moorlands and woods of the national park, and by night you can hunt for shooting stars underneath some of the darkest skies of the UK. Alternatively, you can trace the constellations from the comfort of your hot tub cottage, as the warm bubbles keep the cold at bay.
If the cold doesn’t bother you, plan a trip during the winter months, when you can ski down the Pennine mountains at one of the award-winning ski clubs at Weardale, Allenheads and Yad Moss.
For a perfect seaside vacation, choose a cottage with a hot tub by the sea. The Northumberland coast stretches more than 30 miles and features some stunning wildlife reserves on the Farne Islands or Druridge Bay. The North Sea might be cold, but it also boasts some incredible opportunities for water sports such as scuba diving (check out the famous wrecks of the Somali, the Abyssinia and the Britannia), seal-spotting and windsurfing
After a chilly day at sea, there is nothing better than returning home to a log fire, a home-cooked meal and - of course - an outdoor hot tub of your very own.
