Relax in a Cottage with a Hot Tub in Wales
Plan a wellness break in Pembrokeshire with our wonderful selection of holiday cottages with hot tubs
Pembrokeshire’s coastal location goes hand-in-hand with a wellness holiday, so why not consider booking a Wales cottage with hot tub for your next getaway?
Using a hot tub can actually be beneficial for your mental and physical health. Similar to unwinding in a hot bath after a long day at work, the warm water of a hot tub can create a sense of calm and relaxation, therefore, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. The jet streams can literally ease those sore muscles after a day walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, and that weightless feeling you feel throughout your body during your dip is suggested to help improve your sleeping patterns, which is important in the process of your body resting and repairing.
Not only that, time spent by the coast is proven to have positive effects on your wellbeing too, so choosing a holiday cottage with a hot tub on the Welsh coast is undeniably going to leave you feeling rejuvenated. A simple stroll along the beach each morning can aid your cardiovascular health whilst you soak up all the goodness from vitamin D in the sun’s rays. Blue is said to leave you feeling calm and creative, whilst staring at the seashore watching and listening to the waves has almost a meditative effect.
