Abstract: Planning a trip to Wales and not sure where to stay? I put together a list of the 15 best cottages with hot tubs in North and South Wales.
Wales is famous for its dramatic coastline, cute villages and amazing landscape and it is a great place to go on holiday in the UK. If you are looking for a distinct culture, outdoor activities and a place to unwind then Wales is your place.
No matter where you choose to stay, you will always find amazing places to see and fun things to do in Wales, both in the north or in the south. We travelled to Wales in different seasons, even during the winter when it was freezing cold. At that time, we stayed in a cute pod with a hot tub. Soaking into the hot tub during the night surrounded by nature was very relaxing and somewhat surreal.
If you are looking for an experience like mine, you are in the right place. Luckily for you, I have put together a list of the best lodges with hot tubs in Wales including cottages and cabins.
