Middlemoor Farm Holidays

Available with our glamping accommodation




Both our narrowboats, Miss Ellie and Moonraker, our showman’s caravans, Plover and Peweet and our glamping pods, Bracken and Fern have their very own outdoor log-fired hot tubs which can be hired separately with your accommodation. Glamping with hot tubs is a certain way to help you unwind whilst taking in the incredible sunrises and sunsets across the Northumberland skies. 

The hot tubs are fuelled by kiln-dried wood and are simple to use. Once heated, the hot tub is designed to stay warm for up to 10 hours and can accommodate up to six guests, our smaller hot tubs in Bracken and Fern are comfortable for two guests. If you book our hot tub package, we will supply logs for the equivalent of one night’s heating, as well as hooded dry robes. 

Before your arrival, the hot tub will be filled with cold water and we light the fire if you wish to use the hot tub that day – depending on your estimated arrival time. The hot tub water is chlorine-free, but if you are staying more than two nights we empty, clean and refill the hot tub for you on day three.


  • Remember to bring your bathers and crocs/sliders.
  • Please use the plastic tumblers we provide whilst in/around the hot tub.
  • Do not bring your own logs for the hot tub or fire pit- we supply/sell sustainably sourced dried timber.
  • When you book a hot tub you will receive one nights worth of logs for heating, as well as hooded dry robes.
