kielder waterside lodges cumbriaSometimes a view can make or break a holiday.  We've chosen the lodges with hot tubs and the most gorgeous views we could find. 

These lodges not only have views to die for but the inside of the lodges are pretty special too.  Ideal for romantic breaks and special occasions.

Landal Kielder Waterside in Northumberland

These spectacular lodges with hot tubs certainly make the grade when it comes to our selection of the best lodges with tubs with magnificent views. 

Located in the Lake District in Cumbria it's hard not to have great views!  The gorgeous shoreline of the lake sets the backdrop for lodge holidays here.  In fact it's the largest man made lake in northern Europe. The surroundings are perfect for anyone who loves outdoor activities with running, cycling and walking on the doorstep.  There's also the opportunity to try some snorkelling and fishing too!

The lodges at Kielder Waterside are stunning.  We love the Otterstone Superior which sleeps 4.  The lodge offers stylish living space in an open plan design and even comes with a playstation console!  The Hareshaw Superior lodge is another brilliant choice which offers views over the reservoir from the hot tub - bliss!

Nunland Hillside Lodges in Southwest Scotland

Another strong contender for the lodges with hot tubs with the best views.  Surrounded by the beauty of the Scottish Mountains, these lodges offer relaxing holidays in lovely woodland surroundings.

The views are obviously one of the highlights here, from the lodge you can see the forests and foothills of Dumfries and Galloway.  You can choose from hilltop lodges which offer panoramic views of the Scottish countryside.  Or opt for a delightful valley lodge with traditional exteriors yet modern interiors.

To make you stay extra special here you can order a "luxury snuggle pack" with flowers, chocolates, bath robes, Champagne and more...

This holiday location would suit both families and couples.  There are lots of restaurants and pubs close by and Dumfries itself is less than five miles from the lodges.

Our favourite lodge here is the Criffel Hilltop VIP lodge which offers lots of space and luxury with roll top bath, 50 inch TV, amazing hilltop views and of course a beautiful outdoor hot tub.

Gwel an Mor in North Cornwall

WOW! is all we have to say about the views in this resort.  It's easy to see why Gwel an Mor have won multiple awards.  Overlooking the charming fishing village of Portreath, the sandy beach will really appeal to families.

Some highlights include the indoor pool, gym, croquet lawn and wellbeing spa.  You can try out lots of activities from rock pooling and swimming to wildlife walks and fishing.

For fabulous sea views we recommend the Tregea VIP Lodge which is a spacious luxury lodge with balcony.  This is a real Scandinavian log lodge with amazing views of the sea. Also comes with a private two person hot tub.

Recent customer reviews have praised the stunning lodges, lovely hot tubs and top quality restaurant food.  We love this recent review...

"Most of the lodges faced south so the large deck with outdoor furniture and the hot tub had the sun most of the day. Very well looked after animals on site and a lovely walk through a bluebell wood to the small town of Portreath. I would definitely go there again for the lodge itself but also access to the coast, the mining heritage and the pretty scenery".

westholme lodges weekend break yorkWe have just returned from a fantastic lodge holiday at Westholme Lodges. 

The Westholme Estate manages to combine peaceful, tranquil surroundings with luxury lodge accommodation. 

Highlights of our stay included a visit to Aysgarth Falls just a couple of minutes drive from the lodges, our lovely meal at Henderson's Restaurant on site and the breathtaking view of the Yorkshire Dales from our lodge.

Westholme Lodges will appeal to both families and couples looking for a relaxing getaway in Yorkshire. 

The views from every aspect of the park were beautiful and the whole place had an "away from it all" feel. 

Although we crammed a lot into our stay including a trip to Lightwater Valley on Saturday and Aysgarth Falls and The Forbidden Corner on Sunday, we still came home feeling relaxed and rested.

There are so many local attractions to explore that we would be keen to go for longer next time.  The local villages, castles, waterfalls and caves are within easy reach of the westholme lodges yorkshire daleslodges and it would be shame not to see as much as you can of the local area. 

In particular White Scar Cave and Bolton Castle are well worth a visit.

The lodges vary from real log lodges to timber clad cabins, many with amazing views.  Choose a VIP lodge if you want a hot tub as an added touch of luxury.  We loved the Oak VIP and the Laburnum Premier VIP lodges.

With a rural location there are plenty of opportunities for relaxing and getting away from the stresses of daily life.

On site you will find Henderson’s Bar and restaurant with Wi-Fi access where you can enjoy a bite to eat or a relaxing drink in a laid back environment.

We received this review from Craig Marsh who enjoyed a stay at Westholme Lodges:-

"Wow, What a fantastic holiday. The lodges are like home from home and offer a very high standard. The staff are wonderful and will do their best to help you in any way and the on westholme lodgessite restaurant is very good and quite reasonably priced. The grounds are very well kept and the hot tub was an added bonus after a long walk in the dales.

It is a must to visit the falls and the Wensleydale Creamery. There are not many shops around so do stock up prior to your visit. There are some great local pubs to visit that also do great food but might be best to book in advance. All in all, its a fantastic place to visit. Looking forward to our next visit."
