One of the many things I love about my job is all the different people I get to meet and the beautiful gardens I get to see. Catriona and her fantastic garden in Berkhamsted didn't disappoint. Perfectly located and looked out on from a recently extended kitchen, her patio lent itself as the perfect location for the hot tub. Hired as party of her daughters' birthday celebrations, I heard someone stand at the door, see the tub and exclaim "You're the best Mum ever!!". Made me very happy! Another thing that makes mine a great job.

Hot tub service to the stars

Hot tub service to the stars

blog, celebrity
It was a last minute call on a Saturday, but I still had a large hot tub available so I put down the glass of wine I was about to drink and got on the road. I'll confess, I didn't recognise the beautiful lady who answered the door at first, but she was lovely and chatty. During our talk, she mentioned that she was in the entertainment industry and on further discussion she mentioned she'd been in a band called 'Hearsay'! It was only Suzanne Shaw, also winner of Dancing on Ice! She was kind enough to pose for a selfie and send a photo of her with her partner and some friends enjoying the hot tub! I was surprised how down-to-earth she was and we talked about all sorts…

Hot Tub Movie Night

Hot Tub Movie Night

blog
This week, a customer sent over some fantastic photos of Hot Tub Movie Night, from their weekend. Jenny had decided to treat her husband on his birthday, which coincided with Movie Night! We had to super secret squirrel about the whole thing when we set up. The doorbell had a cctv camera which he can monitor on his phone, so even that was covered with a post-it note! We had to be in and out in double quick time too. Jenny monitored his route home and rushed out of the door to usher him in when he arrived, so he wouldn't peer over the back garden fence and see the top of the dome. She managed to keep him from going outside for a whole 24 hours too! It was…

Fireworks and hot tubs

blog
No, this isn't my roof terrace but you know... ...it did seem like a good image to demonstrate fireworks night and hot tubs! Unfortunately, my experience of Saturday involved spending around 3 hours in the tub, relaxing and listening to music. I say unfortunately, because that's pretty tiring work, so when we got out to have a lie down for 10 minutes, that 10 minutes turned into a 2 hour snooze and we woke up at 7.15pm. aarrrgggghh! We jumped up, got dressed and raced to the display, only to see the first ones going off as we got close :( With nowhere to park nearby, we turned around and went home. Ho hum, still had a nice day.

Special Offers

blog
We've added a new Special Offers page to the site now too. November can be a little quiet leading up to Christmas, so we're giving some great deals to remind you that November is just chilly and boring. It doesn't matter if there's a bit of rain outside. Personally, I love the feeling of sitting in the warm water, with a light drizzle coming down at the same time. I watch the raindrops bouncing off the surface of the water while listening to some music on the mp3 speaker. OK, so it's chilly getting out, but with a quick dash into the house after, it's quickly forgotten!

Lad’s Afternoon in the hot tub

Lad’s Afternoon in the hot tub

blog
The weather is a little overcast, Friday night has left you jaded and Monday morning is still a long time away. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than soaking in one of our WickedTubs? Adam and Andrew enjoyed our hot tub and my guess is, that Sunday afternoon will be more of the same. There's no worries about looking after the tub constantly, just hire for when you know it'll be a good weekend, chilling with a few drinks and letting the bubbles massage away the pain!

Floating hot tub!

Floating hot tub!

blog
Fair play. I wish I'd thought of this - A floating hot tub that's heated by a wood stove and you pilot merrily down the river / canal / wherever the hell you want.It's an absolutely genius invention from a Dutch guy (where else?), Frank de Bruijn. The man is my new hero and I'd love to buy him a beer. It's beautiful in its' simplicity, made from wood, fibre glass and powered by a quiet electric motor, it's got everything you'd need. One person needs to stay sober to steer the thing I guess, but you'd have to draw straws to see who that unlucky person is. It looks like they have a couple of locations in the UK currently, one in Islington, London (hottugUK) and one on the…

Indoor Hot Tub

Indoor Hot Tub

blog
OK, so I'll 'fess up, this isn't one of ours. But doesn't it make you want an indoor tub? And a stone fireplace? And a few million quid for the house to put it in? Having said all that, what were they thinking with the safety rail? I mean, health and safety is all good but I'm pretty sure that the people it's supposed to protect (ie. kids) will be short enough to run right underneath that :) Ho hum, it's probably just jealousy I guess because I don't have a few million quid for the house (and what looks like a woodland to put it in) just lying around. Best I start saving my pennies or marrying into money. If your budget doesn't stretch quite that far either, give…

Great weekend

blog
So, the WickedTubs team were busy last week, setting up, filling and warming water ready for the weekend. We're looking forward to hearing how the parties have gone, and how much fun everyone has had. It's been perfect weather for it - chilly nights make the experience so much better, when the difference between the temperature outside and in the hot tub is so much more noticeable. There was no rain. Not that we mind it - in fact we rather like a light shower while relaxing with a glass of wine, in the hot water. Personally, I found time for a night out, for dinner at 'I Love Food' in Berkhamsted which is one of my favourites. Great food, and great atmosphere, and still found time to jump in the tub…
