The Hidden Tubhouse at The Orchard Retreat
Introducing The Hidden Tubhouse – a great new addition to our fourth season!
The Hidden Tubhouse
With two cast iron baths and a shower, The Hidden Tubhouse is The Orchard Retreat’s version of a glamorous hot tub. Whether you want a refreshing shower, to bath the children or have a romantic soak, this is certainly something to try during your stay.
Having planned to add something extra special for our guests for a while, we came up with the idea of an outdoor bathroom. Nestled in a small wooded area by the stream, The Hidden Tubhouse really does add to the glamping and holiday experience. Being open air you can run a lovely hot bath and relax in utter comfort, whilst sky gazing from the tub. Perfect!
From concept to design, it was such a fun process. Working with a talented local friend, we went through a number of design ideas until the final shape was agreed. Crafted in a beautiful hexagonal shape, it feels spacious yet private. The tubhouse was built using locally sourced Douglas fir giving it a beautiful finish that will only get better with age.
On behalf of all our guests we have tested the tubhouse (well who wouldn’t) and it is just lovely. The birds were singing and the gentle babbling of the nearby stream, combined with the open view of the sky and trees made for a wonderfully tranquil experience. Family bath time will never be the same again. Have your dressing gown and flip flops at the ready to sample this new delight!
Of course there are some tubhouse rules. Please use earth friendly products only, be mindful of other guests who may be waiting their turn and children must always be supervised. But more importantly, have fun, relax and enjoy the view!
We will be offering some tubhouse packages soon – details to follow. But in the meantime, all you have to do is book your stay. Check availability via our website or call us directly and we can help you book your dream getaway. We look forward to seeing you soon.
