Welcome to Hot Tub Barn
Hot Tub Barn is a small, well respected business run by myself and my wife, Sarah. We have 20 employees, many of whom have worked for us for over 12 years. We were pioneers of the UK hot tub industry, first importing Hotspring spas in 1996.
Based at our showrooms in Chelmsford in Essex with an extensive installation and service network, Hot Tub Barn is one of the UK's leading retailers, with Riptide swim spas and hot tubs for sale from just £3250. Whether you seek new luxury hot tubs or used models, swim spas, spa shelters, or something else for your home or garden, you can buy with confidence from us.
Best Regards, Huw and Sarah Chivers
