Det skal I lave

The ultimate experience in body detox, purification and well being.

Guests shall meet at topsham bridge TQ74DR near loddiswell. One hour prior to meeting i will have prepared the sauna and the lighting around the swimming and plunge pool area ready for immediate use. For the best sauna effect our Narvia 14kw heater is fuelled by kiln dried logs which are provided as part of the package.

On meeting i shall complete a safety brief on how to get the most out of the whole sauna and cold water river swim / bathing experience. Ie operation of the sauna, sauna and swim multiple entries and resting periods.

Map of the swim pool depth and safe resting areas etc. Non swimmers are more than welcome as the river is very sandy and shallow in places around the plunge pool, so bathers can still enter the water safely without having to swim.

Next we shall drive to the forest location to start the wood fired sauna experience and bathe / swim right on the River Avon. This activity as described and instructed usually lasts around 2-2 1/2 hours.

Couples or groups who want to hire out the sauna and river swim area for private functions can do so simply by messaging me direct or hitting the private group icon. The cost to hire out the experience is 250GBP for a 3 hour period and a bottle of champagne is included in the price. A great experience for couples who want intimacy.
Other things to note

I am flexible on times to commence the experience, just let me know the time and i will accommodate you.

I own, manage & run the wildswim2sauna retreat which specializes in all inclusive weekend wild swimming & wellbeing activities.

In my younger years some people used to call me the wild man of borneo. Maybe thats because my work in the oil business has taken me to many remote locations in the world. One thing is for certain and that is i love alfresco living and working in nature.

Over the last several years i have as part of my daily lifestyle routine added traditional Finnish wood fired saunas followed by cold river plunging / bathing particularly at night into my life. The sauna and river plunge experience takes 2 hours and i complete this exercise 3-5 times per week.

The health benefits i have experienced are truely amazing. At 53 years old my pulse rate has dropped to 44bpm. My blood pressure is 120/80.

The Yeo farm estate is situated deep in the Avon Valley near Loddiswell. It is a nature lovers paradise covering 112 acres of ancient woodlands and meadows. The estate runs from topsham bridge right into Storridge woods and for 1.5 miles along the River Avon and the old Primrose railway line.

The sauna is located at Mackay’s pool, a large privately owned and secluded natural deep running pool surrounded by ancient wood lands and tall oaks.

Great experience. Charles was very thorough and explained everything well such as talking us through how to safely swim across the river. It was a challenge but worthwhile. Finishing in the hot tub and having cute dogs around was a bonus. Highly recommend

This was a fantastic experience that we would highly recommend. Charles greeted us and gave us a full debrief so we knew how to be safe and also how to get the most out of the experience. We also loved the two dogs who sat nearby ready to provide more wood for the sauna fire! Charles recommended the Beach house at South Milton afterwards and we would also recommend this to any visitors. Stunning beach views and a delicious meal to make up for all the calories we burnt in our detox. The experience was invigorating and totally unique. The best way to end 2021!

This is a truly breath taking experience. It’s unique and different to anything I’ve tried before. Charles was a fantastic host, he explained everything and how the health benefits worked. The setting is stunning and you get a sense of adventure and a great feeling of well-being when you finish.

Would have been a lovelier experience had we met the host and the sauna and hot tub had been fired up before we got there so they were warm, beautiful spot but more attention to detail needed!

I got this experience for my parents and they absolutely loved it. They said it was magical they were lucky enough to see a shooting star at the end!
