Bransholme named as ‘Hot Tub Capital’ of Hull and East Yorkshire

Hot Tubs are usually associated with champagne, parties and a lavish lifestyle.

So, it might come as a bit of a surprise to see that Bransholme has been named as the ‘Hot Tub Capital’ of Hull and East Yorkshire. This is based on our latest research from customers in Hull and surrounding East Riding villages over the last 12 years.

It was in the HU7 postcode where most sales were recorded during this period – but only by the narrowest of margins.

In total, 6.49% of overall hot tub sales were snapped up by home owners in the Wawne Road, Bude Road & Sutton Park area – narrowly pipping the villages of Brough, Elloughton, Welton & Melton (6.41%) into top spot by just one sale.

That left home owners from North Ferriby and Swanland back in third place, with 6.33% of the overall hot tub sales, just one sale ahead of the Gillshill Road and Ings Road area in east Hull, which accounted for 6.25% of sales made.

Hot Tub sales

We were initially surprised by the results, but not by the increasing number of sales we're experiencing. We've sold a lot of hot tubs in areas like Orchard Park and East Hull, but to have such a narrow margin of victory came as a bit of a surprise.

We always seem to do quite well with our sales in the villages, possibly because there are some bigger houses there with more room for a hot tub, but we have do have customers in all areas of Hull and the East Riding.

When it comes to hot tub sales by area, we’re not really bothered where our customers live, as long as they continue to be happy with the products and service we provide.

Perhaps the figures show that people are already busy making their own preparations to get ready for the City of Culture year in 2017.

With hot tubs ranging in price from a very affordable £2,899 ‘Plug and Play’ Outdoor Adventure right up to £20,000 for the deluxe Jacuzzi models, we have a hot tub to suit every style and budget.

The rise in hot tub sales could be partly attributed to the fact that people in our region are “very house proud” and ourcustomers are usually looking for a way to make their home as luxurious as possible - adding a hot tub is the perfect way to improve your lifestyle and home by adding a little bit of extra luxury.

Because housing is still very affordable in the region, in our experience it means people do sometimes have a bit more disposable income to spend on little luxuries. We’ve certainly seen that in recent years because our business is doing well - long may it continue.

Hot Tub Sales Linked to Hydrotherapy Health Benefits

We also recently noticed an increase in of the number of people looking into the health benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy and its impact on both body and mind. The average modern life is full of daily stress and many people want to improve their quality of life through taking time to look after themselves.

As far back as the Greeks and Middle Ages right up to today, water has always been used for relief or for the cure of illnesses, skin diseases and things like liver disorders.

Hot tubs use Hydrotherapy which involves the use of water for soothing an aching body or speeding the recovery of other muscular ailments. It combines water with air and heat to promote wellbeing. At the end of a long day, knowing you can go home and relax in your own hot tub as the jets gently massage your tension away is a great feeling.
