From sea to soak: the best coastal cottages with hot tubs in Cornwall

When it comes to dramatic coastlines and tempting tubs, there’s no better place than Cornwall to enjoy this deliciously complementary experience. And really, is there a better way to unwind after a day of coastal exploration than climbing into your own personal hot tub? If there is, we certainly haven’t found it yet.

Spend an utterly unique holiday enjoying the pure indulgence of a hot tub with the wild and untamed Cornish sea as your backdrop - it's the ultimate way to build your very own at-home spa experience. Here are some of our favourite cottages by the sea with hot tubs in Cornwall


West Cornwall

In Cornwall’s westerly stretch you’ll find rugged cliffs that shelter shingley coves and almost tropical beaches. A sight that can only be improved by sitting in the bubbling depths of a hot tub. And if you find yourself holding a glass of your favourite tipple? Even better.
