What better way to spend a holiday in Norfolk than relaxing under its starry skies, dreaming of the holiday adventures of tomorrow? Not just for the romantics amongst you, a hot tub is also the perfect place to catch up with pals or relax alone, book in hand, as you take a few quiet moments away from the hustle and bustle of a busy family vacation. Come rain or shine, this little piece of holiday heaven is a welcome addition to any property.
Escape to your very own hot tub at one of our cottages with hot tub in Norfolk - read on to find five that you will love.
Bimblebox Barn, Reepham, sleeps 10 and 1 dog
Bring up to ten guests and one lucky dog to this impressive barn conversion in Reepham, 18 miles from the seaside resort of Cromer on the North Norfolk Coast. You’ll love the exposed wooden beams and vaulted ceilings as well as the huge picture windows that look out onto the pretty gardens and fields beyond. A fabulous example of mixing original features with contemporary décor, this open-plan, spacious property is warm and inviting; there’s no better place to be than snuggled up in front of its roaring wood burner in the lounge, hot choc in hand as you chat about your plans for tomorrow.
Actually, we can think of something that may just top this, and that comes in the form of a bubbling hot tub in the grounds. Whatever the weather, throw your cossies on and pile in for some holiday chatter – just don’t let Fido jump under the bubbles with you!
Perfect for: Family vacationers who want their water adventures to continue back at their holiday cottage.
Brick Cottage, King’s Lynn, sleeps 6 and 2 dogs
If you want to jump out of a four-poster bed in the morning straight into a bubbling hot tub, then Brick Cottage is the one for you. Just throw open the French doors, hop across the lawn and jump in, hoping that firstly you've taken your PJs off, and secondly, one of your fellow guests brings a hot coffee and some warm fluffy croissants and joins you for a morning chat on the picnic bench. If that isn’t the best way to start the day, then we don’t know what is!
The cottage borders 12 acres of woodland and lakes and is only 10 miles from stunning coastal walks, a great option for those with beach-loving pups in tow. You are also only an hour’s drive away (35 miles) from Blakeney Point where you can explore the National Nature Reserve and spot playful seals frolicking in the surf. When you get home, sink into the warmth of the bubbling hot tub, while watching children and dogs play happily on the lawn of the enclosed garden.
Perfect for: Guests with little ones and dogs who can be supervised from the comfort of the hot tub.
Fern House, Cromer, sleeps 4 and 2 dogs
Surrounded by pastel-coloured fishermen’s cottages and with sea views from the top floor, you'll be wrapped up in your own little slice of coastal paradise when you stay at Fern House. Its contemporary design and free-standing bath make this property a truly relaxing retreat inside while in the garden, a welcoming hot tub and seating area is the perfect place for a family BBQ, perhaps enjoying some of the local crab that Cromer is so famous for.
Spend days picnicking and building sandcastles on the sandy beach, having holiday fun on the pier and exploring the Norfolk Coast Path with the hounds. When the sun sets, head home, grab a bottle of something fizzy, and sink back under the starry Norfolk skies with just the sounds of the sea in the distance as company.
Perfect for: Small families or couples who want a traditional seaside resort with pier by day and a hot tub to relax in by night.
When you have a much-awaited family holiday or friends’ reunion planned, you might want to consider spending it at this gorgeous traditional farmhouse, just 11 miles from Norwich. Start your Norfolk escape by arriving down a long sweeping drive, ready to jump out of the car and bagsy the best bedrooms. You’ll find this pretty difficult as the six bedrooms are equally delightful, with original features such as exposed wooden beams, sloping ceilings and timber-framed windows, all with charming country décor.
After you’ve unpacked, gather together for a kitchen supper in the country kitchen with its Rayburn oven warming up the room, and plan celebratory meals that will take place in the impressive formal dining room. If you can bear to leave this gorgeous retreat, take a relaxed drive to Norfolk’s beautiful beaches and National Trust properties, but make sure you hurry home to have a race around on the go-karts or a game of outdoor table tennis followed by a late-night dip in the hot tub.
Perfect for: Groups of families and friends coming to Norfolk to celebrate a special celebration – especially for big kids who love go-karting!
