Cardiff offers many exciting activities, whether you are into art, entertainment, indoor recreation, or outdoor adventure. It is home to many interesting museums that people of all ages love, such as National Museum Cardiff and St Fagans National Museum of History. Often called the City of Castles, it is famous for its ancient castles, such as Cardiff Castle and Castell Coch. If you like whitewater rafting, one of the best things to do is to head to Cardiff International White Water at the heart of Cardiff International Sports Village. You can also enjoy watching football or rugby at Principality Stadium. A dip in a hot tub would be the perfect way to destress after a long day of such intense sports. And with the help of this carefully curated list, you can stay in one of the best cabins with hot tub near Cardiff, UK. Check them out below.

Upcoming events:

  • Cardiff Half Marathon is one of the most popular races in the country and one of Europe’s largest half marathons. Visitors can enjoy family-friendly activities at Saturday’s Cardiff Half Junior before the half marathon on Sunday.
  • Music lovers should stop by Cardiff Castle in June for its one-day music event, DEPOT in the Castle. The event features big names from around the world.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) host status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and access to hot tub. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on July 09, 2024.

1. Lime Tree Lodge (from USD 242)

Best for: Wildlife enthusiasts

This cabin sits in Gilwern within Brecon Beacons National Park, only about 50 minutes from Cardiff. I think this is the perfect base camp for couples or small families seeking a tranquil getaway due to its superb location. Thanks to the dog-friendly policy, you may also bring one well-behaved dog. However, do note that dogs must be leashed in the garden. They also cannot be left unattended indoors. If you need a breath of fresh air, you can hang out and enjoy the stunning mountain views from the balcony.

You can also soak in the hot tub while admiring the view of the surrounding greenery. It is private, so you do not need to share it with anyone else.
