Hot Tub Terms & Conditions

All hot tubs are emptied, cleaned and refilled after each stay, therefore the hot tubs may not be up to temperature until late evening, however we do half hot fill our hot tubs each time
Some of our shepherd huts have hot tubs and to ensure the safe and enjoyable use of the hot tubs we request that you read through and adhere to the rules of this safety document.

  • Not all our shepherd huts have hot tubs, each shepherd hut with a hot tub is for the use of those guests only.
  • We do not advise use of the hot tub during pregnancy, please contact your doctor for advice before entering the water.
  • People with skin, ear, genital or other body infections, open sores, or wounds should not use the hot tub because of the possibility of spreading infection or irritating your condition.
  • Persons with heart disease, diabetes, low or high blood pressure, or any serious illness should not enter the hot tub without prior consultation with their doctor.
  • Never use the hot tub while using or after using narcotics or other drugs that may cause sleepiness, drowsiness or raise/lower blood pressure.
  • The heat of the hot tub water speeds up the effects of alcohol and can cause sleepiness, dizziness and unconsciousness.
  • Avoid using the hot tub immediately after a heavy meal.
  • Do not immerse your head in the hot tub water.
  • Never use the hot tub alone.
  • Take care when entering and leaving the hot tub. When leaving the hot tub leg muscles may be relaxed enough to make you unsteady. Please use the stepping stones provided.
  • Never use glass near/in the hot tub, we have plastic cups/glasses provided

  • Do not use any electrical appliances near/in the hot tub.
  • If any fault or damage occurs with the hot tub please contact a member of our team at the earliest convenient moment. We will assess the damage and contact you accordingly
  • Shower with soap and water before and after using the hot tub. Showering before use washes away many of the common skin bacteria and removes lotions, deodorants, creams etc which reduce the effectiveness of the spa sanitizer which disinfects the water.
  • Do not add any liquid, soap into the hot tub
  • Do not sit or walk on the hot tub cover.
  • When hot tub is not in use please secure the lid
  • Avoid entering the hot tub water immediately after exercising as the water temperature can affect the heart rate.
  • Take care on the hot tub steps as water from the tub can cause it to be slippery.
  • If any allergic reaction occurs leave the hot tub and rinse off in the shower. If the reaction persists, contact 111 or go straight to A&E.
  • Do not turn hot tub isolation switch off as the hot tub’s power needs to be turned on to carry out the cleaning cycles.

Please note – To comply with HSE regulations the hot tub water is checked every day.
