Rising demand for hot tubs in UK holiday homes

Latest News  /  08 April 2022

With brits planning their 2022 summer getaways, holidays closer to home are set to remain a popular choice – specifically where there is a hot tub involved. 

With this in mind, we conducted research using data from Airbnb* to find out just how much holiday makers would be willing to pay for a UK break with a hot tub. The data revealed that the average price for a bubbly addition during summer was £282.68 per night compared to the overall average price of £135.37. As similar difference exists during winter, where the price with a hot tub stands at £232.46 per night compared to the overall average nightly price of £121.55.  

But which areas of the UK are the cheapest when it comes to adding a hot tub to your holiday stay? 

Top 5 cheapest locations for hot tubs this Summer:

LocationAverage price with a hot tub (per night) Average price (per night)

South Wales topped the list as the least expensive place to holiday with a hot tub, with an average price of £105 per night with a hot tub and £94 per night without.
