Create Your Own Wood-fired Retreat


Need to address your stress? Want to find a way to hack into your happy hormones?

Try to imagine a place where you always feel relaxed and content - your happy place. If that vision is to have your very own private sanctuary, conveniently situated in your own garden, perhaps we can help.


Make the dream a reality

Picture this - a wonderful wood-fired retreat where you can enjoy all the health benefits of a steamy sauna and hot tub therapy - alone or with close friends and family. Now the reason I mention 'close friends' is because if you want to steam away the stress, the traditional way to do this is completely naked. And to enhance your traditional sauna therapy, in between your steamy sessions you should have a cold water dip. As we don't all have the benefit of a lake, river or even a pool then the next best thing is a wood-fired hot tub. Although for sauna therapy you should keep it cold for maximum effect and health benefits. Personally, I prefer my bathing water slightly warmer than the outside temperature. But I'll try the traditional sauna way soon and I'll let you know.


Happiness and health

Saunas have been around for ages in various guises - hot springs, steam rooms, etc. So it's not a new short-term craze. The main reason saunas have been around for centuries is because they are linked to a range of health benefits. Regular use of a sauna can :

  • Lower stress levels - Saunas promote mental and physical relaxation because of the quiet atmosphere. Let the heat relax your body and take slow, deep breathes to calm you even further. This helps regulate your body’s energy.

  • Reduce pain and risk of illness - Because saunas are good for cardiovascular health, regular use may help prevent high blood pressure. Sauna therapy could also help prevent or reduce the pain and stiffness caused by rheumatism and arthritis. As well as potentially reducing the risk of illnesses such as dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.

  • Boost mental health - Early research has shown there is a positive link between sauna therapy and an improvement in the mental health of people suffering from depression. So using a sauna regularly, could support your mental wellbeing as well as physical health.

  • Improve the skin - A more visible benefit to using saunas is that they increase the skin’s moisture retention, which means they could benefit people who suffer with eczema, psoriasis or other skin conditions.

Up Close and Personal

I'm not talking about sauna bathing, not directly anyway. This is more about our recent visit to the Cotswold Leisure Company headquarters in the UK. We went with a very long list of questions and chatted in length about the two new wood-fired saunas. It was great to see the saunas up close - they exceeded all our expectations and look so much better in the flesh.

Solid construction, quality manufacturing and materials, and they are really easy to use. In fact, they're a lot like our hot tubs! Basically, light the sauna boiler about an hour before you want to use it, get changed, grab a drink (to stay hydrated), and a towel to sit on. And that's it!



Sauna Open Day Coming Soon!

We pre-ordered four saunas as soon as we made the decision to add these quality products to our range and there is only one left from this first order. This will be the one that we set up in our garden to use as a demo model. So keep your eyes peeled for details of our next at Hot Tubs HQ Open Day in 2023 when we'll be showcasing the Burford Deluxe and Kingham Hydro hot tubs, as well as a shiny new sauna.
