GUIDELINES FOR PROPER USE OF HOT TUB
The hot tub has been provided for you to enjoy in comfort and provide a relaxing experience whilst you stay with us. However, for your safety and enjoyment there are guidelines for the proper use of the hot tub that must be adhered to by all guests. This is an important health and safety legal requirement for Hot tubs used in a commercial environment. You must adhere to the guidelines set out below. Failure to do so could result in injury or death and Pidley Bottom Cottages & Shepherd’s Huts accepts no liability, due to loss or injury in relation to inappropriate behaviour, or misuse whilst in or around the confines of the hot tub. There are a few simple rules to follow so you can enjoy the tub throughout your stay.
Guests must shower and use the toilet before entering the hot tub. Fake tan will stain and dirty the hot tub, requiring us to empty the hot tub, this will incur a cost.
Do not use any soaps or detergents of any type in the hot tub, this will result in it having to be emptied and shut down for the remainder of your stay. This will incur a cost.
Appropriate swimwear should be worn at all times, naked bathing is not permitted.
The hot tub is quite deep so for caution there should always be a minimum of 2 people in the hot tub in case of an emergency.
Test the water with your hand before entering to make sure it is a comfortable temperature.
Guests should never submerge their head in the water.
Hot tub water is not suitable to be in or near your mouth and should never be consumed. It is your responsibility to instruct any children of this advice.

CHILDREN: Risk to children – Extreme caution must be exercised to prevent unauthorised access by under age children. The hot tub cover must remain closed at all times unless a responsible adult is present. No children under 5 years old are permitted in the tub, as they cannot regulate their body temperatures suitably.
