Wooden Hot Tubs In The Great Outdoors


In need of a little hygge muddies? Enter Kernow Springs stonkingly gorgeous eco tubs. Who could possibly resist the charm of a traditional wooden hot tub simply heated by burning wood? Its what every Christmas party needs, am I right? But a hot tub is not just for Christmas – its a gift you can use all year round, so why not treat yourself?

Maybe you’ve seen the guys with their ‘Roaming Eco Spa’ over the summer. They’ve rocked up everywhere from Rock Oyster to Port Eliot adding a touch of luxe to all that damn mud. But they’ve also been busy building and installing tubs for private clients (not jealous at all*), glamping outlets and boutique hotels across the county.

*I am.


I have my beady little eye on the two person ‘Ofuro’  Japanese soaking tub for the Muddy Towers ensuite reno (yes really) – you can buy them without the heater and use it like a regular bath tub. Seems like I’m not the only one to have this on my Pinterest board –  they have several commissions for these already – no heater, just plumb in to your wetroom or bathroom and go. A warmer remedy to the current copper bath trend.

The ‘Ofuro’ wood fired tub is available in a choice of woods and heater options, from £1,549.00 which is amazingly good value. If you’re not ready to take the ‘plunge’, the guys at Kernow Springs offer a try before you buy deal, where you can hire the tub first, and if you decide to keep it, the hire charge is knocked off the price.


No bubbles (you’ll have to bring your own), these hot tubs are more for tranquil relaxation in my book. Tubs come in three wood options and range in size from the two person soaking tub to a party size 12 person tub.


These guys have made theirs portable – topfield or lakeside tonight darling?

Hot of the press – the guys now have their own showroom at the ’boutique’ garden centre Travisker garden centre Padstow. Worth a detour if you’re off to Padstow Christmas Market this weekend.
