The bad news? It’s a while before we’ll be drenching in the sun next to a turquoise-dappled swimming pool on the French Riviera. The good news? Along with our spirits, the weather is warming up – so it’s the perfect time to invest the money you would have spent on a 2021 holiday upgrading your garden. Ready to blow the budget? Whether your pace is more sautéing in an outdoor kitchen or lounging in a hammock with a dog-eared Penguin, there’s no better way to enjoy the Great British Summer than from one of these luxurious hot tubs, botanical cocktail in hand. Grab your favourite bikini (or swimmers) and hop in.

William Holland Rotundus, from £8,055, williamholland.com

If Soho Farmhouse or The Pig at Brockenhurst are anything to go by – rustic farmhouse chic is here to stay. While you’re waiting to book in, how about installing your own 530-litre outdoor bath instead? We’re dying to splash into William Holland’s Rotundus, in a choice of copper, tin and verdigris exterior and interior finishes.

Skargards hot tub

Skargards Regal, from £3,790, skargards.com

Like minimalist fashion and hygge, hot tubs are an area in which to take inspiration from the Scandis. Outdoorsy types will love the practicality and rugged feel of Skarsgards’ Regal, based on traditional designs with an integrated wood burning stove.

MSpa Tuscany hot tub

If you think you have to skimp on luxury and style for a budget friendly hot tub, think again. The perfect place for long, lazy summer afternoons in the garden, MSpa’s inflatable Tuscany tub is a pinch at under £2,000. Once you’re finished with it simply deflate and pack away.

If your fingers are anything but green, take inspiration from this re-purposed potting shed-meets-home-spa. Providing protection from Great British showers, it’s an unlikely (but perfect) spot for William Holland’s Alvius bath. Just add cocktails.
