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
Its great fun to sauna and bathe at night
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.

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!

We all had a nice time in the wood fire Sauna & Hot Tub. Because of the location it was difficult to find we arrived 45mins later than our booked slot, but Charles was accommodating and still let us have the full 2 hour session. We couldn't find it initially because it was down a country road that wasn't very well sign posted & struggled to contact the host because both phone and internet signal was poor we couldn't get through and didn't have the hosts number also, probably due to poor signal we didn't get any response from the host for 40mins. So I would recommend asking for their number ahead of your booking. Once we arrived we parked up at the bottom of a field, I would recommend contacting the host before hand if you don't have a 4x4 to agree where to park as I think you'd struggle to get back up the hill when its muddy. The actual experience ended up being quite fun, but pretty intense. When we booked we didn't realise that it would be mandatory to jump into the river before the Sauna & it was dark when we arrived thankfully we're all pretty strong swimmers as the river was fairly fast flowing. All of us only lasted a minute or two before getting out and hopping into the Sauna, which was welcomed but so so hot. Very intense temperature change. Definitely needed after the freezing temperatures of the river. We then repeated back into the river and then the Sauna. We certainly felt detoxed, but it wasn't quite the relaxing experience we were expecting. I think it would be an amazing experience for a summer evening. The hot tub at the end of the night was definitely our highlight as we bought some champagne and sat underneath the stars laughing with our friends. Overall good experience just be aware of what you're getting yourself in for.

Absolutely amazing experience! Booked this for me and my boyfriend for his birthday and couldn’t have asked for better, the whole thing was booked for just us 2 which meant we could experience it together just as a couple, Charles was amazing, very helpful and explained how the whole experience worked and left us with what we needed! The coldness of the water is breathe taking but such a thrilling experience, which leaves you feeling refreshed and vitalised, definitely recommend this experience, 10/10!!

This is a unique and magical spot in a huge expansive field. The river is deep enough to swim in and there’s a rope swing which is fun!

Charles was a great host, convincing us that swimming in the river in October would be great for body & soul! Loved the experience all together.
