Beautifully crafted, elegant and simple; a wooden hot tub is a joy to behold.

A little bit of luxury for your garden.


We are currently in the process of renovating our workshop and will be unable to take any hot tub orders until later in the year. Feel free to get in touch if you have something specific you require or would like to talk about.


Designed with elegance an simplicity, wooden hot tubs are a marvel in relaxation. As at home on a patio as they are in the middle of a woodland our hot tubs are beautifully crafted, durable and require virtually no maintenance.


Benefits of Wooden Hot Tubs:

  • Economical: Wood burning internal heaters waste no heat, and take around 3-6 hours to heat up fully, and external heaters up to 8 hours. Compared with an electric heated hot tub which can take up to 36 hours to heat water using electricity.

  • No Wires: The sky is the limit when it comes to location, as long as you can carry a bag of logs you can put your hot tub wherever you like – on a patio or on top of a mountain.

  • Crackling Log Fire: The fire is part of the experience; the faint smell of the wood smoke as the temperature increases adds to the atmosphere.

How often should I change the water in my hot tub?

This really depends on use, but generally for private use every week. If being used intensively for lots of different people you may want to change it every day. You will get a good idea of when the water needs changing through using your own tub, but if you wish to leave it for longer periods of time then a filtration system should be looked into.

Remember, never leave your hot tub empty of water.

How do I clean my wooden hot tub?

We recommend only using natural cleaning products. Depending on the amount of use you may want to add disinfectant to the hot tub about an hour before emptying. While the timber is still wet (you can wait for it to drain, or start during draining) scrub all accessible areas with a soft brush or sponge. Rinse thoroughly with clean water.

How long do wooden hot tubs last?

With good maintenance, a cover and a good exterior preservative applied once a year then it can last for many years. Although we have not had one on the ground for decades yet, we would predict at least 15 to 20 years if well looked after.

Does the hot tub leak?

Yes, when they first arrive they do as the wood is not swollen – once filled with water, the wood swells to create a a watertight seal, which is the reason you should always keep your hot tub full.

How long does the water take to heat up?

About three to six hours, depending on tub size, the surrounding air temperature and the quality of the firewood used. Use the paddle to stir the water and help distribute the heat.
