Bring your swimmers and get ready to unwind in your own wood-fired hot tub located on your private patio with stunning views down the Wharfe Valley. The wooden tub, with a plastic liner, has generous seating inside and lights up at night with subtle LED lighting.
Can I bring my own wood for the hot tub or fire pit? We do not allow guests to bring their own wood or charcoal. Sustainably sourced, kiln dried timber will be provided at the accommodation.
Hot Tub User Guide
This guide has been prepared so that you can get the most out of your hot tub during your stay. It details the best way to get it up to temperature and the health and safety risks you need to be aware of.
Your hot tub has been filled with fresh spring water and has been pre-lit so that it is nicely warming ready for your arrival. We advise aiming for a temperature of around 38°C.
Please do not empty the hot tub, we will do this after you have checked out. Emptying it when hot can cause irreparable damage to the internal plastic liner. Chlorine has been added to your hot tub and we will monitor the levels during your stay to ensure your safety.
To light the hot tub stove, please follow the instructions below. If you have just arrived, please skip to number 5.
- Open the door on the side of the hot tub and Insert firelighters. Light them using matches.
- Carefully add kindling around the burning firelighters in a pyramid shape and close the door.
- Below the door is an ash pan tray, which also acts as a draft regulator. Pull the tray out 5cm for maximum airflow. This will accelerate the fire and give maximum heat.
- When the kindling is burning well, carefully add logs around and above the kindling. For an optimum fire, cross the logs over each other, leaving gaps for the flames to get through.
- You will need to add more logs regularly until the water is up to temperature.
- Repeat until the temperature of the hot tub reaches 35°C. A duck thermometer is provided.
- The hot tub will continue to heat up to the optimum 38°C. Push the ash pan tray (below the stove door) back in to reduce the airflow and slow the fire down. You should not enter the hot tub if it is over this temperature.
- If you leave the insulated lid on overnight your hot tub will still be hot in the morning.
- Please do not put any wood in the stove on the morning you leave as we need it to cool down so that we can empty it for the next customers.
- CHILDREN MUST SPEND NO MORE THAN 15 MINUTES IN THE HOT TUB AND THE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE SHOULD BE 35.5°C. THEY MUST ALWAYS BE SUPERVISED.
- ADULTS SHOULD SPEND NO MORE THAN 20 MINUTES IN THE HOT TUB AND THE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE SHOULD BE 38°C
- IGNORING THE ABOVE CAN RESULT IN FAINTING WHICH COULD LEAD TO DROWNING
