Kernow Springs offers spectacular, eco-friendly and indulgent wood-fired hot tubs, available for the home, commercial use and events.

For Kernow Springs, it all began when Cornwall-based, former boat builder and father of two Martin Dean built a pair of wood-fired hot tubs, after being inspired on a family holiday. Using different types of wood has always been second nature to Martin in his work, so word soon spread of his beautiful, backyard creations. Demand soared, to the point where he decided it was time to launch his own company. Now, Kernow Springs is one of the south-west’s leading suppliers of wood-fired hot tubs!

Not just for personal enjoyment, when installed in your holiday properties, these wonderful additions can help add year-round appeal, even in the cold depths of winter. After all, nothing’s more tempting than a relaxing dip in the hot tub. But why choose one that’s wood-fired? For a start, being handcrafted from the finest timbers, they look stunning and can really complement the ambience of your garden.

What’s more, being heated by burning wood means that no electricity is required, which means much lower running costs, no noisy pumps and only minimal water treatment required – 100% natural and 100% sustainable! Indeed, these fabulous tubs caught the eye of popular actress and TV personality, Caroline Quentin, who simply couldn’t resist their rustic charm. “I love my Kernow Springs hot tub,” beams Caroline. “It’s a joy to use and looks wonderful too. Sitting under the stars, up to my neck in
hot water is a wonderful, eco-friendly way to relax.”

As well as gracing many homes and holiday cottages across the south west, these stunning tubs have proved popular in hospitality venues too. The Old Mill House, for instance – a wonderful Padstow bed and breakfast, decided a wood-fired hot tub would make the perfect addition. Indeed, after instalment, the team watched its Valentines weekend package sell out in record time! General Manager, Adam tells us: “I would highly recommend a Kernow Springs Eco tub. Not only is it a one-of-a-kind product, but Martin’s knowledge and dedication is exceptional.”

So, if you’re looking to boost your revenue, year-round interest and eco-image, why not contact the Kernow Springs team? If you’d like to see the tubs in action, visit the home show or head down to Trevisker Garden Centre in Padstow, where several of these wooden beauties can be found on show. Wild Spa Rentals are also now available!
