Hot Tub Policy

Hot Tub Policy

Our hot tubs are available for use year round.

For your comfort and safety we change the water in the hot tubs between each set of guests. As a result please be advised that your tub might not be up to temperature for the first evening of your arrival.

The hot tubs have been set and will come up to 38 degrees. This is a lovely comfortable bathing experience temperature. Do remember particularly in cold weather that you are sitting in the equivalent of a large outside bath, so do expect that temperature to drop a little!

The Dreaded Rules & Policies

Parents are advised that the hot tubs are not suitable for children under the age of four and bathers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

During pregnancy soaking in the hot tub may cause damage to the foetus so contact your doctor for advice before entering the water

Persons with heart disease, diabetes, low or high blood pressure, or any serious illness should not enter the hot tub without prior consultation with their doctor

People with skin, ear, genital or other body infections, open sores, or wounds should not use the hot tub because of the possibility of spreading infection or irritating your condition

Never use the hot tub while using or after using narcotics, alcohol or other drugs that may cause sleepiness, drowsiness or raise/lower blood pressure. The heat of the hot tub water speeds up the effects of alcohol and can cause sleepiness, dizziness and unconsciousness.

limit your time in the hot tub to a maximum of 20 minutes before exiting and having a break as extending this time can affect your inner organs and cause fever like conditions.

Do not immerse your head in the hot tub water. This increases the risk of infection and can heighten the dangers of drowning

Never use the hot tub alone

Take care when entering and leaving the hot tub. When leaving the hot tub leg, muscles may be relaxed enough to make you unsteady

Never use glass near/in the hot tub as broken glass can cause a risk to people in bare feet and is very difficult to see within the hot tub water

Do not use any electrical appliances near/in the hot tub

Shower with soap and water before and after using the hot tub. Showering before use washes away many of the common skin bacteria and removes lotions, deodorants, creams etc which reduce the effectiveness of the spa sanitizer which disinfects the water and can cause the water to turn a murky product induced colour.

When not in use please make sure that the cover is on and secured

Avoid using the hot tub immediately after a heavy meal

Avoid entering the hot tub water immediately after exercising as the water temperature can affect your heart rate

Take care on the decking/hot tub steps as water from the tub can cause it to be slippery

If any allergic reaction occurs leave the hot tub and rinse off in the shower. If the reaction persists contact the owners or go to a local doctor or A&E

No more than 4 persons at once should use the hot tub

Do not turn hot tub isolation switch off as the hot tub’s power needs to be turned on to carry out the cleaning cycles.

Do not walk or allow children or dogs to walk on top of the hot tub covers, they are fragile, expensive and could result in person/s, dog to fall into to the tub.

Please respect the local wildlife and the neighbours in this beautiful quiet countryside as they may not have the same taste in music as you do, so if you could keep the volume right down all will be most grateful..

It is your responsibility to enforce and abide by the rules of safety of the Quantock Cottages hot tubs.

If the hot tub needs to be shut down and emptied due to misuse which can include but not limited to, foods, liquids, oils, bubble bath being used in it or dogs having been in it, this will incur a charge of £100.
