In order to enjoy the Hot tub safely during your stay, please read the guidelines below and to ensure all members of your party are familiar with and observe the guidelines.

General Guidance:

Undo all clips and use the cover lifter to remove the cover, please do not leave the cover on the ground.

Ensure that the hot tub is never fully switched off, as this will cause loss of heat and affect sanitation.

Take care when entering and leaving the hot tub as the patio areas can become slippery when wet.

When not in use make sure the cover is on and secured with the clips provided.

Do not use the hot tub in thunderstorms or attempt to open the cover in high winds.

Please bring towels/ bathrobe with you for use outdoors.

Your Health & Wellbeing:

Our hot tubs are set at 38oC and we recommend that this should not be exceeded. At 38oC you are advised to limit your time in the hot tub to a maximum of 15 minutes in each use. Exceeding this time can affect your inner organs and cause fever-like conditions.

Please shower and rinse before and after using the hot tub, as this washes away many of the common skin bacteria and chemicals that will reduce the effectiveness and cleanliness of the hot tub. Ensure that all skin lotions including sunscreen and fake tan are washed off prior to entering the hot tub as these may discolour the water.

People with skin, ear, genital or other body infections, open sores, or wounds should not use the hot tub due to the risk of infection. Pregnant women and persons with heart disease, diabetes, low or high blood pressure, or any serious illness should consult their doctor before using the hot tub.

Children under 16 must be supervised by a suitable adult at all times in and around the hot tub.Children under the age of 5 should not be allowed in the hot tub under any circumstances

Never use the hot tub alone. Excessive exposure to the hot tub can increase the risk of allergic reactions and skin complaints.

If any allergic reaction occurs leave the hot tub and rinse off in the shower then contact 07962245717.

Do not use the hot tub if you notice any deterioration or discolouration of the water. Contact (07962245717) and stop anyone from using the hot tub until it has been checked. If any allergic reaction occurs leave the hot tub and rinse off in the shower then contact 07962245717.

Do not consume alcohol before or during hot tub use. The heat of the water speeds up the effects of alcohol and can cause sleepiness, dizziness and unconsciousness. Do not use the hot tub while using narcotics or other medication that may cause sleepiness, drowsiness or raise/lower blood pressure. Do not use the hot tub after a heavy meal or exercise as the water temperature can affect your heart rate.

Do not drink or immerse your head in the hot tub water. This increases the risk of infection and can heighten the dangers of drowning due to suction below the water line. Ensure that long hair is tied up to avoid it being trapped in jets or filters

Do not bring glass near the hot tub, as broken glass is a serious hazard and breakages will require the hot tub to be drained and cleaned. Non-breakable alternatives are available in the cottage.  No smoking in or around the hot tub.

Do not sit on the lid which covers the filter, or the hot tub cover- it is only made of polystyrene and will break under weight. You will be liable for repair of any damage caused (new cover £400) . Take care when removing and replacing the cover. Broken clips will be charged at £10 per clip.

Do not use any electrical appliances near/in the hot tub.

For effective sanitation of water at these temperatures, the pH and sanitiser levels need to be carefully balanced and monitored, Do not use the hot tub if you have added water yourself, as this will dilute the chemicals and  the  balance will need to be reset.Do not add any chemicals to the water.

Do not exceed the maximum occupancy of your hot tub (5 persons). The water level must not drop below the level of the jets as this will lead to the pump working overtime and may lead to damage to the hot tub and subsequent loss of use.

To comply with health and safety best practice, our staff will check the hot tub daily to ensure the water quality is safe. Please vacate the hot tub if requested to allow our staff to test the water and add any necessary chemicals.  Timings will be pre-arranged with you prior to your stay.  In the event of adverse test results the hot tub may need to be closed for a period.

We change the water and clean the  hot tub between every set of guests, so it may not be up to full temperature by your arrival time.

In the event of the hot tub not being available for guest use due to malfunction outside of our control, excluding misuse by guest,  compensation will be limited to £40 per affected 24 hour period.

We reserve the right to withdraw the hot tub without refund in the event of misuse.  No compensation will be issued for loss of amenities.

If the hot tub needs to be shut down, cleaned and refilled due to misuse then an additional charge of £130 will apply.

Thank you for your cooperation and enjoy your hot tub!
