Log Fuelled Hot Tub Safety Instructions

Both of our narrow boats and showman’s caravans now have their own log-fired hot tub outside.The hot tubs are fuelled by sustainable dried wood and are simple to use. Once heated, the hot tub is designed to stay warm for up to 14 hours and can accommodates up to six guests. If you decide to take the hot tub package when you book with us, we will supply logs for the equivalent of one night’s heating, as well as hooded dry robes. The hot tub will be filled with cold water before your arrival, and we will light the fire if let us know that you wish to use the hot tub that day – depending on your estimated arrival time. We will not add chlorine to the water, if you are staying more than two nights we will 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 in and around the hot tub
  • Do not bring your own logs for the hot tub or fire pit, we supply/sell sustainably sourced dried timber
