Head Lad With Hot Tub

These are the terms and conditions that you are agreeing to if you make an online booking any Dalesend Cottage that has use of a complimentary Hot Tub added to the cottage name as above.

Please read and sign the Disclaimer on page 2, as the agreement of use – see the last paragraph of this document.

We cannot allow the use of the hot tub without a signed and dated disclaimer.

Very occasionally (e.g. during peak booking season) your hot tub may not be ready for a 5pm arrival time, but this is rare. We reserve the right to advise you if there is any short time delay – whilst we reheat the clean water for your use.

In order that we may clean and reheat the water for bookings, your hot tub must not be used from 9pm on the eve of your departure day.

The hot tub is not part of the cottage rental. It is a complementary feature. In the very rare/unusual event that we could not provide the tub due to a power outage or Force Majeure reason, any force beyond our reasonable control, there is no rental compensation.

Health & Safety Guidance
Just like other physical activities, bathing in a Hot Tub could also bring certain Health and Safety risks. These are, in principle, the same as risks when bathing at home in the bathroom and they can be reduced by consistently following these simple Health & Safety guidelines:

Extra caution
Extra caution must be taken whenever alcohol is being consumed, before or during hot tub use. Jumping and climbing on, or in the vicinity of the Tub, is dangerous and completely forbidden. The owners of Dalesend Cottages will not take any responsibility for accidents caused by irresponsible behaviour.
Please take a shower before entering the tub.
A temperature of 37-39°C provides a pleasant bathing experience because it is slightly warmer than a body temperature. Your tub is electronically controlled to settle at 38°C.
It is vital to drink enough water while bathing.
We recommend drinking at least one litre of water during a hot tub session. Consuming alcohol heightens the atmosphere and the experience; however, the alcohol must not be a substitute for the drinking of water. Consumption of spirits is not recommended.
Glassware is NOT ALLOWED whilst bathing or near the hot tub, please use the plastic glasses provided in your cottage or bring paper cups.
Please do not eat whilst bathing.
Food particles break down contaminating the water and the internal surfaces of the tub. This causes damage and may become your liability if you eat whilst bathing.
Please do not swallow the hot tub water.
Use of shampoo, soaps and oils in the tub is forbidden.
They create unpleasant particulars in your spa water and damage the tub. Please bear in mind that the hot tub is not for cleaning your body. This experience is to help you to clear your mind and relax.
If you enter the tub wearing your usual day/evening wear, the tub will need to be drained instantly, the booking for the hot tub will be cancelled, and damage costs will apply.

Please take a shower after bathing in the tub.
Also, shower after bathing.  Please note it is vital not to keep wet bathing costumes on, especially if your skin is sensitive.
Symptoms could be a rash or chickenpox like spots where the skin is covered by a wet bathing costume left remaining on your body after you have exited the hot tub.
Please consult your GP before bathing if you have any kind of heart or respiratory problems.
