If you didn’t think the Cotswolds could get more idyllic, try soaking up the area’s serenity from a hot tub, with champagne in hand. Whether you choose to visit Chipping Campden or Moreton-in-Marsh, the Cotswolds is full of peaceful, charming English villages – not to mention lush hotels with a growing number of private hot tubs. Here are our top picks.

Cotswold House Hotel and Spa

A honey-gold Regency townhouse sets the tone for a blissfully restorative Cotswolds escape in picturesque Chipping Campden. Stroll through gardens of scented cypresses and neatly clipped hedges to the old coaching house, now transformed into a swish spa with a hydrotherapy pool, steam room and treatments such as vitamin-glow facials and personalised essential-oil massages. Private whirlpools beckon from your terrace in the Hot Tub Suites.

Just outside Tetbury in Calcot’s 220 acres (89ha) of gorgeously green countryside is one of the most fabulous spas in the Cotswolds. It has a devastatingly romantic fireside hot tub out in the courtyard, lit by lanterns at night. The moody indoor pool, sauna and steam rooms add to the peaceful, forget-everything feel, and you can work up a sweat at the outdoor gym or plunge into the open-air pool. Thoughtfully crafted seasonal meals (such as Wiltshire lamb and romesco pappardelle) draw regulars at the popular Conservatory restaurant.

The Greenway Hotel and Spa

Wandering around this elegant 500-year-old country manor outside the Regency town of Cheltenham, you will inevitably be tempted by the sparkling Elan Spa – with original-period wood beams, exposed brick, moody lighting and heated hydrotherapy pool. Best of all is the outdoor hot tub on a private terrace – perfect with a glass of Veuve Clicquot. The Mini Spa Day package includes a blissful Espa treatment, pool and hot tub time, and afternoon tea. Graceful country styling extends to the rooms, where you might crash in an antique four-poster bed with Cotswolds views.

Dating back to the mid-19th century, the Hare and Hounds is the kind of cosy country hideaway where you’ll want to play board games and enjoy drinks by the flickering log fire. Relax after a stroll around the market town of Tetbury, lovely Westonbirt Arboretum or Prince Charles’ Highgrove – all of which are nearby. In the forest-print-adorned Game Keeper’s Cottage, you’ll have your own hot tub out in the garden, along with a freestanding bath, while the Magnolia Suite also conceals a private hot tub.

Charingworth Manor

The story goes back 700 years at history-packed Charingworth Manor, near Broadway and Chipping Campden – TS Eliot once stayed here. Settle into the Cotswolds lifestyle with a soak in your personal outdoor hot tub – just two rooms of this kind – and a trip to the seductive spa, which has a heated pool, a sauna and a steam room infused with eucalyptus oil. In the evening, roam the expansive grounds and feast on daily-changing Gloucestershire-rooted delights such as wild-mushroom risotto and pan-fried sea bass.

    In lively Moreton-in-Marsh, the gold-tinged Manor House started life as a sumptuous 16th-century home. Walled gardens extend beyond the art-filled, smart-casual mansion – afternoon tea or cocktails on the terrace, overlooking the 300-year-old mulberry tree, are a highlight, as is the respected modern-British Mulberry Restaurant. Our top pick of the plush rooms – all with Molton Brown toiletries – is the self-contained Apple Cottage, with its own secluded terrace and hot tub.

    Another Cheltenham jewel, this elegantly modernised, gold-stone 15th-century manor blends oak beams, stained glass, antique furniture, original fireplaces and other charmingly historic goodness with bright contemporary design. In the tranquil spa, you’ll find a sauna, steam room and hot tub, not to mention luxury Elemis treatments such as the Couture Touch. The outdoor pool, bordered by cheery flower beds, stays warm all year. Grab a house-special G&T in the pub-bar, and then linger over inspired British-French cooking by the fire, all a stone’s throw from Cheltenham Racecourse.

    Built from a 17th-century stone farmhouse, uber-stylish Dormy House is part of the rambling Farncombe Estate between Broadway and Chipping Campden. The romantic Rose Cottage delights with a hot tub in the patio, floral-feast decor and exposed wood beams – or go for a Scandi-chic Hot Tub Courtyard Suite. But the award-winning spa steals the show, with its candlelit infinity pool, juniper-infused sauna, salt steam room, alfresco hydrotherapy hot tub, and tempting treatments starring Temple Spa and Natura Bissé products. Dining highlights include market-fuelled picnic hampers, vegan afternoon teas and gourmet tasting menus.
