hot tub in winter

It may be chilly outside, but here are a few reasons why using your hot tub in winter is the best!

Let us set the scene – The snow has fallen, the sky is dark, the stars are out, and the Yorkshire air is crisp and pure. You take the cover off the tub and the steam rises. One more step to pure bliss!

What better way to enjoy your hot tub than in the cold of winter, when let’s face it, the nights are long and dark and we’re all in need of a little pick-me-up. Soothe away your tensions, aches and colds, and turn your garden into something you can enjoy 365 days a year. Our range of hot tubs are insulated with NASA-inspired Triple Thermal Shield Technology, so the cost of running your hot tub in winter is nowhere near as much as you would expect.

Banish your winter sniffles

As winter begins, the cold sets in and so do the germs. We all suffer from annoying colds and even flu in the winter time. What better way to air your sinuses than to inhale steam from a hot tub? Breathing in steam is one of the most natural ways to banish a cold. You could even add some eucalyptus aromatherapy from our Dream Scents range to help soothe your sniffles away.

Soothe your aches and pains

With the cold weather comes increased pain in the form of joint aches and arthritis. Ease inflammation and stiffness around your joints with the warm water and jets in a hot tub. The natural healing power of the water will provide welcome relief in the harshest of winters.

Defrost and keep toasty

You’ll probably want the temperature of your tub hotter than usual in the winter months. Turning it up to 40 degrees Celsius is a good temperature. The last thing you want is to be cold. Ensure you have a good insulated hot tub cover to avoid any heat escaping when not in use.

Make your garden a winter wonderland

Not purely reserved for the Christmas tree, why not try hanging twinkling fairy lights around your hot tub gazebo for a truly festive experience. Avoid the need to jump in and out in the cold weather with a floating spa bar packed with your favourite nibbles or drinks. Make sure you have a big fluffy bathrobe and slippers nearby to make the journey in and out of the tub more bearable! And finally, not one for the fainthearted; ever tried rolling in the snow straight from the tub? It’s strangely satisfying…!

Go out with a bang

Ditch the wellies, hats and mittens this year and keep cosy in your tub to watch the New Year fireworks. It’s the perfect way to celebrate in comfort and see in the new year raising a glass of fizz surrounded by warmth and luxury.

Diffuse the stresses and strains of Christmas

The run-up to Christmas is stressful; presents to buy, food to prepare, families and events to organise. Remember to take some time out at the end of the day, find a clear night and enjoy a spot of peaceful star gazing in your hot tub. You’re guaranteed to sleep better.
When the presents have been opened, the turkey and Christmas pud demolished, you can sit back and relax in your hot tub with family or friends. Hot tubbing is a great stress reliever, plus it calms down overexcited kids before bed!
