Wells has been ranked as the best city to enjoy a log cabin getaway with a hot tub, according to new research.

This was part of a study from Slingo looking into what the most relaxing getaways in the UK were and what factors contributed to that.

Discussing the reasoning behind the research the site said: "With the stress of modern life, work and personal relationships, a relaxing retreat can be the ultimate way to reset. A relaxing getaway gives you the much-needed opportunity to recharge, de-stress, and rejuvenate.

"A relaxing getaway can look different to everyone, but for most, it involves spending time in a spa, receiving a massage, or reconnecting with nature in a countryside cabin. But where is the best place to spend a relaxing retreat in the UK?"
