What is it about hot tubs? Everyone wants one. According to a recent survey, more homeowners desire a hot tub in their garden than a greenhouse. While it should be noted that the 2 products perform slightly different roles (tomato plants don’t take too well in a hot tub), it’s telling that in recent years the hot tub has become so desirable once again.

If you’re not fortunate enough to own a hot tub – or a garden for that matter – your dreams of joining the elite needn’t be cruelly dashed. The solution, when you think about it, is simple: book a luxury holiday rental that comes with its own hot tub. After a week spent drinking beer, wrinkling your skin and pretending that you’re partying in the Hollywood hills circa 1976, you’ll be ready to step out of the tub and get on with your life. Until next year at least, when you can do it all over again.

Ah, the Lake District. A draw for hill walkers, cyclists, climbers, anglers and anyone else who lives for the outdoors. From Kendal to Windermere, the Lake District never ceases to delight with its sleepy villages, market towns, riverside walks and rambling trails that lead through the hills and valleys.
