When the nights draw in and temperatures start to drop, there’s no better way to beat the cold of winter than with a dip in the hot tub. Pair that with exquisite self-catering accommodation at Carwinley Retreat and you’ll soon be living the life of luxury! Winter hot tubbing is a whole different experience and even comes with some unique benefits that you may not have thought about…

If you don’t believe us, here are just a few reasons why it’s so great to enjoy a hot tub at this time of year - we promise you’ll appreciate a hot tub even more with the cooler weather!

1. Health Benefits

We all know wintertime is renowned for the wretched cold and flu season, but did you know that a dip in the hot tub can actually boost your immune system? The heated water in a hot tub improves your circulation and stimulates your body’s natural production of white blood cells, which helps your body fight infections. Inhaling the hot steam can clear out your sinuses and is a good way to banish your winter sniffles too!

Here at Carwinley Retreat, we also have a very meticulous cleaning regime for each one of our hot tubs - they’re drained and deep cleaned after every guest to ensure the utmost hygiene every time you visit.

2. Stress Relief & Relaxation

The holiday season can be a stressful time of year, so it’s no surprise that many of us find these dark winter months exhausting! The nights are long and dark and we’re all in need of a little pick-me-up… We recommend managing your stress levels and treating yourself to a well-deserved break at Carwinley Retreat amidst the beautiful countryside away from all that mayhem - and have a good soak in your private hot tub! Your muscles become less tense when you’re immersed in hot water, so it’s a great way to soothe those aches and pains and relieve your stress as a result!

3. Warm yourself up

Rid those winter blues with a trip to Carwinley Retreat and we promise you’ll have an experience like no other!

The sky is dark, the stars are out, and the crisp Cumbrian air is about - but not even the cool temperatures should stop you from enjoying the beauty of nature in winter!

Immerse yourself into your own private hot tub here at Carwinley Retreat to defrost and thaw out your chilly limbs… Keep yourself toasty and warm outside in the cool open air with the bubbling hot waters - even with a bikini or swimming trunks on! Just keep your bathrobe and slippers nearby!

A hot tub can go a long way in making wintertime more memorable and enjoyable, especially when secluded amongst nature in a truly romantic retreat… With two traditional cottages, a shepherd's hut and a contemporary cabin, all of our luxury self-catering holiday lets come with their very own private hot tub and all the reasons to make you say ‘wow’.
