A HOT tub company is taking advantage of the heatwave to remind customers of its services.

Prudhoe Hot Tub Hire started trading in October 2021 and is run by locals Steven Caulfield and Mark Rowell.

The business hires out Helsinki Lay-Z-Spa hot tubs for long weekends from Thursday to Monday. Hot tubs are delivered on a Wednesday as it can take up to 24 hours to heat.

"We have had some fantastic feedback from our customers, great reviews left on our Facebook page and we have had some bookings based on recommendations from people who have used our service", they said.

"Comments include, excellent service, great price, loved the early drop-off, exceptionally clean tubs and cant wait to book again."

The tubs, which can fit up to seven people in, have been hired out for birthdays, family parties and post-night shift, general relaxation.

They added: "We provide free delivery within 10 miles of Prudhoe, and have some great local support, we have also had hires as far as Sunderland.

"Our prices are extremely competitive and we believe we can offer a better service than others we have tried; we provide a professional service with user-friendly instructions, full chemical kit with spare filters and even a small gift with every hire.

"The tubs are gorgeous, a touch of luxury and fit up to 5-7 people comfortably, with a relaxing 180 air jet massage system and a temp setting of up to 40 degree C."

The current heatwave is expected to last into the weekend with an amber weather warning for extreme heat issued across a large part of the UK ahead of further soaring temperatures throughout the week.
