So you’ve spent time and money getting the garden looking good but what could make a Sheffield staycation more relaxing than lying back to admire your work in a hot tub?
There are places where you could buy a hot tub in Sheffield – or you could rent one out if you just want one short term, maybe for a special occasion, or fancy trying before you buy.
