With the festive Christmas celebrations over January and Febraury can be a dull and dismal period, but here at Hoe Grange you can banish the winter blues with a relaxing session in our fantastic new Scandinavian barrel sauna.
New for 2014 - log-fired barrel sauna
The quirky barrel shaped sauna is in the small private garden created just off to the side of the cabins, next to the hot tub. The elegant wooden screens give the occupants privacy while allowing both hot tub and sauna to be situated close to your lodge.
the log-fired stove with heat retaining stones to keep you toasty
You can truly relax and detox and either enjoy the wooden sauna as a dry heat, or add a splash of Hoe Grange water with some essential oils for a steamy, sensual delight which will leave you glowing all over. The heat retaining stones ensure that even as the fire dies down you still feel the full benefit of the warmth seeping through your body. What better way to refresh both body and mind whilst on holiday with us in the Derbyshire hills?
For those of you with a strong constitution wanting the full authentic Scandinavian experience you can douse yourself with ice cold water under the bucket shower if you dare!
Whilst not suitable for everyone we have made an access ramp so that less mobile guests with small wheelchairs will be able use this wonderful new facility - just ask us if you need advice on access.
Your exclusive eco-friendly sauna session costs just £40 and can be booked for up to an hour and a half so with your cosy self catering log cabin so close you can dip in and out as often as you like. The sauna can seat up to 6 guests at a time, but is perfect for a romantic sauna for two - however with Valentine's Day just around the corner you will need to book now to avoid disappointment!
