Hot Tubs & Cooking

Pidley Bottom Cottages & Shepherd’s Huts at Sidings Farm

Hot tub next to shepherds hut

Supplier: Naked Flame Eco-Tubs
Telephone: 01484 766233

Description: Luxury, self-catering accommodation set within a small working farm deep in the heart of the Cambridgeshire countryside
Product: LuvTub and a wood fired sauna

Details: The owners at Sidings Farm were attracted by the low water volume and fast heat up time (one hour) of the LuvTub. Made from solid Scandinavian timber, hot tubs from Naked Flame can be supplied in sizes to suit all spaces and arrive with the customer fully built.

The site also ordered a wood-fired sauna. Bespoke layouts including changing rooms, outdoor seating and various storage options give each design its own personality and, with the addition of the new semi internal wood-burning sauna heaters, there is now no need to take any fuel into the sauna room itself. Simply load from outside eradicating the potential for any mess inside. Electric heaters are also available if preferred, and both are available in the classic barrel design as well as the pod shape (pictured).

Feedback: “From the moment we contacted Naked Flame we were impressed with the level of service, attention to detail and communication. Throughout the order and delivery process we were kept informed as to the build time and exact delivery date and time – something that was important to both us and our guests.

“The build quality of both the tub and sauna are exemplary and Naked Flames’ after-sales service means that technical questions are answered promptly and in full. The addition of these facilities means that our booking rates have increased and our guests have been assured an added dimension to their stay with us – we wholeheartedly commend Naked Flame!”


Pot A Doodle Do Wigwams

Pot A Doodle Doo huts

Supplier: Logspan
Telephone: 01389 887205

Description: A glampsite on a working farm on the North Northumberland coast with 27 Wigwams, three canvas yurts, a restaurant, shop, craft studio, fishing and play area

Product: Three 11m2 Finman BBQ Huts

Details: Pot A Doodle Do Wigwams saw the benefit of offering a warm, dry environment where their guests could eat. They wished to test the waters with one BBQ hut, with the option of adding more if uptake was good. It wasn’t long before they had three popular BBQ huts up and running, adding another unique selling point to an already very popular glamping site.

Feedback: “We saw these BBQ huts at the Royal Highland Show and felt they would be a great addition to our site for guests when the weather was not so great. We received excellent advice from Logspan regarding installation of the huts and the building of them.

“The quality of these huts is superb. You can BBQ at anytime of the year, whatever the weather. Lots of our guests enjoy great nights in the BBQ huts. They are easy to use and with the extractor fan fitted they are foolproof. They are very easy to clean and very low maintenance. We would certainly recommend Logspan BBQ huts as an addition to any site.”


South Wales Camping

South Wales camping hot tub

Supplier: Universal Glamping
Telephone: 01269 853957

Description: A camping and glamping site set in rural South Wales with a fishing lake
Product: Deluxe hot tub with log burning stove

Details: The owners of the site chose this product as they were looking for a luxury item and were attracted by features including built in lights, bubbles, filter and an insulated cover. It only takes on average two hours to heat unlike electric hot tubs, which can take double the time. It was easy to set up and sits perfectly alongside the pod accommodation creating a luxurious setting.

Feedback: Owner Jacqueline said: “From point of sale, Universal Glamping was very helpful with the description on how to install the hot tub. It was delivered on a pallet and was put into place by a Hiab vehicle. Once situated all that was needed was the flue to be assembled and a drainage pipe for waste water. As this is a freshwater hot tub we do not use chemicals and this has proved very popular with our customers. It is a low maintenance hot tub with easy cleaning and works extremely well for me as a glamping site owner.

“Since installation this has boosted my bookings and increased customer feedback.”
