The 8 Best Hotels with hot tubs in The Cotswolds
The Cotswolds is one of the busiest regions for tourists in the entire United Kingdom. Visitors flock from far and wide to enjoy this quintessentially English region with its pretty rolling countryside and picture postcard perfect villages. Inevitably this means that good accommodation can be expensive and difficult to book (they're busy year round), but if you plan ahead you can bag yourself one of the best hotels with hot tubs in the Cotswolds and enjoy a relaxing, or romantic, treat amid glorious scenery.
Some of our hotels with hot tubs in the Cotswolds offer suites with private gardens or terraces with their own tubs. These are obviously the ultimate in indulgence and don't come cheap. But for that premium you are getting top notch service, delicious food and the ultimate luxury break. All are also ideally located to make the most of the area: one's a des-res in Chipping Campden, one's a manor house in the centre of Moreton in Marsh, one's a luxury, family friendly affair in Tetbury and our final choice is an opulent property between Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton on the Water. The following list is our pick of the best hotels with hot tubs in the Cotswolds. The list is not in order of any preference!

There are comfortable bedrooms, an indoor pool and an outdoor hot tub next to a roaring fire.
- The Cotswold House Hotel is an historic property in the heart of pretty Chipping Campden. Rooms are modern with indulgent bathrooms - think rain showers and large free standing baths.

The 19 rooms are all different, some featuring four-poster beds and stand alone baths, some with bold wallpaper and colourful fabrics, so consider a few before you make your choice.
