There are a lot of pretty towns and villages in Kent which are not only popular amongst local tourists but also international visitors. Kent has plenty to offer and it is an excellent destination for all types of travellers. There are also various types of fantastic accommodation in Kent, but why not stay in a cool place with a hot tub?

Most romantic lodges with hot tubs in Kent

It is perfect for walking and cycling with a footpath to the local 14th Ferry Inn, serving a delicious seasonal menu.
Guest review: “This hidden gem was perfect for our week away. Hidden in the vineyards we got some well needed time out in the countryside. With some great stormy weather, we still managed to use the hot tub under the sky’s as it’s well sheltered in the alcove. Trekking from camber sands to Rye was great fun, and only a short drive away. Plenty to do and a very detailed guest guide at the house to give you plenty more options. Hosts responded quickly to any questions and left us to it. Check-in was super simple.” Stuart, February 2020.

We felt tucked away, yet were so close to lots of attractions and the hot tub was fabulous as the wind blew in our faces and our bodies stayed wonderfully warm - a real treat to let the pressures of everyday life drift away. The property is very well equipped; everything you need to cook (including sharp knives which is always a bonus), comfy beds and great wi-fi plus lots of basic supplies such as washing up liquid, toilet rolls and handwash which was much appreciated. We highly recommend Spitfire Barn as a great place to stay to explore Kent.” Judith, November 2020
