Be ready for adventure and British summer evenings with Potwells’ cuddly and cosy, long hot water bottles – for children of all ages

With festival and the holiday season fast approaching, adventure-loving families will adore these ultra-toasty, long hot water bottles to cuddle up to on chilly nights glamping or after dipping their toes in cool English seas.

With the rise of the staycations, glamping and family-friendly festivals, Potwells’ cosy, long hot water bottles offer a fun and friendly way to keep children warm this summer, so the adventures can keep on going. While stargazing at night or after a busy day bodyboarding on the Cornish coast, the two-litre hot water bottles will keep the family warm and cosy for up to eight hours.

The three designs - Ursula the Unicorn, Dustin the Dinosaur and Zavi the Zebra - will add some mythical magic to the great British holiday season. The 75cm long bottles are available for £39.95 each and are ergonomically and cleverly designed with air bubbles on the body surface to trap heat. They are made from high quality grade natural rubber, making them 100% ‘little people’ friendly, and a have washable covers.

Founders and mums, Julie Ann Mclean and Nicola Barnett said: “With seven children between us, we wanted to design a long hot water bottle that our little ones would love to cuddle up to and we would be happy knowing it’s safe and comforting – on every occasion. Our children have ‘road-tested’ the bottles in all kinds of situations. They have taken their cuddly friends with them for warmth on camping trips, movie nights with their friends and on many British beaches. They have travelled well!

“We’re great believers in ‘there’s no such thing as a bad weather’ – with a warm fleece, our long hot water bottle and perhaps a hot chocolate or two – our children will be ready for any adventure this summer.”

Potwells was founded by Julie Ann McLean and Nicola Barnett in 2013 and has grown from its rural Leicestershire base to become an established luxury brand, with a uniquely stylish product offering loved by children and desired by grown-ups. As their families grew, the two firm friends built their business around their busy lives and their love for beautiful, well-made children’s products. The hot water bottle design was based on an existing adult version and then tailored for children with the help of their own seven-strong ‘expert panel’.

Julie Ann and Nicola continue: “We’ve designed and made a product our families are proud of. Our children love to take their hot water bottle characters wherever they go. They’re proud to have played a part in their creation and have been essential in designing a stylish product that can be used and loved by families.”

So, whether you’re exploring the Glastonbury fields, filling your bellies at the Big Feastival, or simply cuddling up around a fire on a cool evening, Potwells long hot water bottles are the perfect accompaniment to a great British summer!
