The Forge Corwen

Wood-fired Sauna Experience

Event Date: 01/05/24 - 31/12/24

Come and experience the benefits of hot and cold therapy in our wood-fired sauna. Available from May 2024.

Did you know that using a sauna can have many benefits for your mind and body? As well as improving your cardiovascular health, it can reduce inflammation and boost your immune system. It's also a great way to take some time out of our busy lives to stop, reflect and enjoy some time connecting with friends.

When combined with some cold water, in the form of a cold shower or wild swimming, the benefits of using the sauna are increased even more as your body adapts to the changes in temperature and leaves you feeling invigorated, relaxed and ready to face the world again.

We are offering half day sauna sessions at The Forge from this spring, which includes hire of our main cabin, Drewyn, and our outdoor covered space, Cynefin. This means you can relax and enjoy our wildflower meadow, our iron age hill fort and take advantage of our kitchen and relaxation spaces to enjoy some delicious food and drink, and really slow down and connect.

You are welcome to run complementary activities such as yoga, Pilates, meditation or craft activities before or after your sauna experience. The space is yours to enjoy so please feel free to create an experience that your friends or guests will love!

You can choose from a morning session which starts at 9am until 1pm, or an afternoon session which starts at 2pm until 6pm. We will ensure that the sauna is hot and fully prepared for your arrival. We will supply all the logs and kit you need for your experience, the only thing you need to bring are your swimsuits and towels.

It costs £180 for a half day session, or if you would like to hire the sauna and the cabins for the whole day it costs £360. Please contact us to book.

If you would like to bring more people or hire the space outside of these times then please feel free to give us a call on 07766 230042 and we can have a chat about how we can make this work!
