rounding up our tubs

We’ve rounded up our tubs!

Summer is here. We’ve dusted off the wellies and rounded up our best hot tubs in preparation for the 161st Great Yorkshire Show!

Held annually in Harrogate, it’s the biggest event in the agricultural calendar, spanning a full three days.

As in previous years, the event brings together the very best in British farming and food as well as local businesses and entertainment.

All the traditional judging will be happening, as well as a catwalk, art installations, music, entertainment, cookery demonstrations and motorbike stunt riding. It’s set to be a fantastic show!

The Great Yorkshire Show is one of our favourite events of the year and this is YHT’s 9th year exhibiting! We look forward to showcasing the very best of our range to you. We’ve already safely delivered 4 of our luxury hot tubs, with 2 fully operational and one filled swim spa in preparation for the event.

We also look forward to welcoming our favourite young professional Yorkshire swimmer to show you just how amazing swimming in a swim spa can be. On Tuesday and Thursday our demonstrator will be jumping in the spa and testing her limits against the jets! Stay tuned on Facebook for live streaming.

They’ll also be some amazing free prizes for anyone who purchases a hot tub or swim spa at the show!

As in previous years, we will be located in Hall B on Stand 632 right next to the Yorkshire Café. We’d would love you to come and say hello, have a chat and witness our luxury hot tubs and swim spas in action.

This year’s dates are Tuesday 9th July until Thursday 11th July 2019 at the Great Yorkshire Showground. Check out the Great Yorkshire Show website for travel information and tickets.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Hot Tub Garden

How an outdoor hot tub complements garden living

Hot Tub Garden

The addition of a hot tub needn’t be a manmade eyesore in your beautiful garden.

If you’re thinking of buying a hot tub but want it to blend in with the flora, then take a look at our suggestions about how to incorporate an outdoor hot tub into your garden with a combination of furniture, decking, gazebos and plants.

As it’s officially Spring now, we can start planning and preparing our gardens for the summer ahead. We’re exhibiting at the Harrogate Flower Show this weekend and have a few favourite ideas to share with you…

A burst of colour

As always, plants and shrubs will complement the natural wood, helping to provide an organic screen. Use climbing perennials and annuals such as fuchsia or clematis will add a burst of colour. If you’re thinking of a pergola then try a winding wisteria, vine or climbing rose to add scents and vibrancy. Keep these plants regularly pruned to help prevent debris entering your hot tub. A balance between a selection of evergreen plants or shrubs will ensure that your garden is green all year round.

Gazebos and Canopies

Create some cover from that Great British drizzle with a natural cedar gazebo. With designs tailored to your exact hot tub or swim spa, they provide an organic, aesthetically pleasing canopy. Add climbing plants, bunting, fairy lights, hanging baskets or wooden furniture to enhance the look.

hot tub with decking

Natural Decking

If you’re thinking of sinking your outdoor hot tub into the ground, building decking could be the perfect option for you. Building steps up to your tub so you can step in will help to blend your tub with the garden.

hot tub plant pots

Pots

Ideal for the summer, adding pots of pretty and vibrant flowers such as begonias, marigolds or geraniums offer instant and long-lasting colour that last the whole summer season.

Fragrance

As well as choosing plants you like for their beauty, it’s worth considering fragrance when planning your garden. The sweet scents of roses, evening primrose, jasmine or lavender will awaken your senses during immersion.

Use natural screening

Try adding natural screening such as bamboo around your hot tub. It’s great natural alternative to fence panels to provide screening and protection.

The addition of an evergreen shrub will not only give you good green cover but protect against the wind. You’ll also enjoy a more natural type of privacy with a green screen such as Japanese Yew or Emerald Arborvitae which can grow to up to 15 ft. These shrubs need minimal pruning (just once a year) and are fast growing.

Eating & Drinking

You could even add an outdoor bar area in addition to your outdoor furniture to enhance your garden living experience. A good quality gas barbeque or even a wood fired pizza oven provides a welcome addition to your garden that can be used all year round!

Lighting Options

Create a truly atmospheric evening hot tub experience with solar powered lighting. Add small torches either sides of paths, or on longer stems beside your tub to light the way to your tub at night. You could also consider adding some dimmable lighting. See our features and upgrades page for information on packages that can be added to your Self-Cleaning hot tub to enhance your experience.

If you need some help planning your garden and finding the perfect place to house your outdoor hot tub, then we’d love to help.

Why not pop in and see us at the Harrogate Flower Show this week, or head to our showroom in Ilkley to view our stunning range of tubs and swim spas. We look forward to meeting you!
