Our Area & Hot Tub: Hot Tub Instructions

Our log-fired, cedar-wood hot tub is located in the wood behind Manesty. It seats four people and can be booked by the day for exclusive use at a price of £25.

The tub is kept locked at all times when not in use. On the day of your booking you will be provided with a key, a copy of these instructions and a demonstration on how to use it. Firewood, kindling and firelighters will be provided.

Please read and follow the instructions carefully and if you have any questions or problems, please ask. The whole heating process takes 3 – 4 hours, so we suggest you start early! However, if you used the tub the day before the water will be quite warm and will only take about an hour to reheat.

Happy hot tubbing!


1. Be sensible

Do not use the tub under the influence of alcohol. Do not overheat the water; use the cold water at the bottom of the tub which is always cooler than the top to cool it.  If you have allowed it to overheat and it gets too hot top it up with cold water from the hose BUT this takes a lot of water and should only be a last resort. Do not use the hot tub if you have had diarrhoea or vomiting in the past two weeks. TAKE CARE when lighting and feeding the fire. The chimney gets very hot so DO NOT TOUCH it!

2. Supervise children

Children, fire and deep water do not mix. Closely supervise children AT ALL TIMES. If you leave the tub, replace and lock the lid so that other children cannot use it.

3. Consider others

Please do not use the tub after 11pm. At all times, keep noise, and to-ing and fro-ing to a minimum. Use the route for your cottage that avoids going in front of other cottages.


1. BEFORE lighting the fire

The tub is kept full to prevent the cedar wood drying out and causing leaks. We will have refilled the tub with fresh water for you before you use it. Before you light the fire check that the hot tub is full, at least to the bottom of the ‘R’ is Rustic. This ensures that the firebox is covered with water and stops it from overheating. If the tub is not full enough DO NOT LIGHT IT the fire: come and see us.

2. Lighting the fire (ONLY if the tub is full)

Take the black storm lid and the metal lid with the handle off the fire box and put in the rubber firelighter and kindling. Light the fire and bank it up to the top of the firebox with small dry logs. Replace the metal lid leaving a small gap on the side furthest from the chimney. The fire will burn hottest (which is what you want) when the metal lid is open about 2-4 inches. This will also keep out the rain or splashes of water!

3. Feeding the fire

45 minutes after lighting bank up the fire to the top of the box again. After a further 45mins (having now filled the firebox twice, once to light it and one refill) check the water temperature. When the top of the water down to the seat is hot to touch and below the seat the water remains unheated it is time to use the tub! At this stage stir the top of the water gently with your arm to mix the water above the seat until it is just right. Ideal hot tubbing is having the bottom of the the tub distinctly cooler than the top – float your legs out in the warm water above the seat level.

4. Controlling the temperature when heating

Control the temperature by monitoring the fire and water carefully, visiting the tub initially every 45 minutes after lighting. After 1 and 1/2 hours, visit every 15 – 20 mins and monitor the water temperature with the thermometer; dip the thermometer about 8 inches into the water when measuring the temperature.  Optimum temperature for hot tubbing is between 37C – 42C at the top; use the thermometer. When you are in the tub the bottom of the tub should always be much cooler than the top.

When you start to feed the fire for the third time (after 1 and a 1/2 hours) be careful not to add too much wood. With 2 fills of the firebox you will have heated the water from about 10 degrees C to about 35 degrees C. You probably won’t need a full fill to get it the extra couple of degrees to perfect hot tubbing temperature! Add the wood in smaller lots (1/3 – 1/2 fill at a time) and more frequently (every 15 – 20 mins) and measure the temperature before adding more.

5. Enjoying your tub

Use the colder water towards the bottom of the tub to control the temperature; gently bring up water from lower down with your arm to cool the top layer.

Control the fire to control the temperature; close the lid of the fire box completely once you have got the water to your idea temperature. The fire will continue to burn slowly and keep the water warm. Reopen the lid 2 – 4 inches to heat up the water more if you want to.

Control the temperature if it really gets too hot, by topping up with cold water from the hose. However, this is a last resort and it takes a lot of water to cool it down. Overheating the water is dangerous, disappointing AND a waste of wood.

Four people in the tub will move water around more than just two, bringing up more of the cooler water at the bottom. You may need to add more wood while you are in the tub.

The tub will seat 4 adults at a time. If you have more people, the water will over-flow and then when you get out it will leave the fire box exposed and it may overheat and melt. Keep the tub topped up whenever the fire is lit.

7. Leaving the tub

Leave the tub full to the bottom of the “R” of ‘rustic’ (top it up if necessary). Replace the firebox storm lid and metal lid and lock the lid of the tub.
