WHAT MAKES A LUXURY TRADITIONAL OUTDOOR SAUNA?

Lined with sustainably sourced clear Canadian cedar, and clad in durable FSC and PFEC certified wood we have designed our Wildhuts to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions and keep you cosy in any climate, while you enjoy a moment of solitude or revel in the company of friends and family. It's the traditional sauna that fits with contemporary living

 

We believe each Wildhut is as unique as you are. You can add your personal touches by selecting your fixtures, finishes and fittings, based on your individual taste and lifestyle. Because there's no reason a traditional outdoor sauna can't be a modern outdoor sauna!

THE PROCESS

DESIGN, BUILD, INSTALL

PLANNING FOR YOUR LUXURY WILDHUT TRADITIONAL OUTDOOR SAUNA

The style, size, and type of sauna that's right for you will depend on many different factors. Together, we will work with you to establish your site location, desired timeline and budget to ultimately create, a Wildhut sauna experience that is perfect for you.

 

Our primary objective is to design and build traditional yet modern outdoor saunas that utilise the available space to the fullest in your desired location whilst harmonising with the natural environment. 

Step 1: Designing your luxury Wildhut sauna

Following initial telephone contact, we will send you a design brief in order to clarify your exact needs and requirements for the location of the sauna. We will work with you during this stage to help refine your exact brief before any costings are produced.  

 

We can then present you with technical drawings for your approval before proceeding to the build stage. 

We are also happy to come to your home or business for a site visit if required. 

Step 2: Building your luxury Wildhut traditional  outdoor sauna

We approach every project as a partnership with our clients, with a total dedication to the highest quality of workmanship. Your high-end outdoor sauna will be delivered on-time, on-budget, with meticulous attention to detail. 

Once you have confirmed your order and paid a deposit, the build process typically takes between 12-20 weeks depending on the size and specific configuration of the sauna being constructed and our manufacturing and delivery schedule.

Step 3: Installing your luxury Wildhut sauna

We keep in regular contact throughout the process to ensure any groundworks at your end are on schedule and that you are ready for installation. 

 

We will agree on a delivery date with you before your final agreed payment becomes payable whereafter your new sauna will be delivered, complete, to its final destination. There is absolutely no assembly required, so you can sit back and relax whilst your traditional outdoor sauna dream becomes reality.

Besides being possibly one of the best investments that you can make for your personal physical and mental wellbeing, the increase in demand for sauna services across the leisure, hospitality and residential industries is growing exponentially each year.

 

Whether you are a private estate owner, a boutique hotel, wedding venue or golf club, investing in a Wildhut luxury outdoor sauna can add a truly unique wellness modality to your current offering and do wonders for your occupancy all year round.

 

If you are a new or existing UK business interested in working with us, we would love to hear from you. Take a look at our commercial sauna installation page for more details.

TRADITIONAL GARDEN SAUNAS FOR YOUR HOME, OR YOUR BUSINESS

Exterior cladding

You can choose to leave the exterior wood to fade naturally to a gorgeous grey colour over time or we can stain it in a colour to suit your preferred design aesthetic and outdoor environment.

Porch area

Your sauna can come with a customisable multi-purpose porch area you can use to stand and cool down between sauna sessions, to hang your robes and towels or use as a wood store. It can also be your preferred space for a cold or hot shower or be enclosed to serve as a private changing room. We can work with you on your requirements.

Sedum / living roof

A living roof not only looks aesthetically pleasing but it's also an environmentally friendly option that can attract garden wildlife and enhance the overall appearance of your traditional outdoor sauna. 

Off grid battery solution

Wildhut saunas with wood fired heaters can be built for ‘off grid’ use with power requirements for lighting etc. being facilitated by a supplied powerful rechargeable battery.

Marine grade shower facility

As cold water is a great way to really feel the benefit of sauna bathing, an outdoor shower can be integrated into the sauna’s design, made from marine grade stainless steel for maximum longevity and durability.

Your view

Your sauna room can take full of advantage of its surroundings with window positioning and size options to make the best of your view from inside!

Bespoke lighting requirements

As standard we provide one LED strip of specialist steam proof sauna lighting which is placed behind the backrests to create a glow around the sauna. However bespoke additional lighting can be added to your specifications.

Groundworks

We will provide detailed instructions to you and/or your builder, in order to prepare the ground in advance of your sauna arriving. If required we can come and inspect your space and advise on appropriate groundwork requirements.

Ramp or Steps

Our saunas are designed to be delivered and installed into place where the groundworks have been prepared according to our specification. If you require access to your sauna by means of a ramp or steps we can incorporate this into the design for you.

Mobile transport facility (trailer build)

We can build your sauna on a flatbed trailer to facilitate easy transportation if you're looking for a more mobile sauna.

Delivery & installation

Depending on access to the desired spot for your sauna, we can make full arrangements for delivery and installation. Don’t be put off if you have tricky access, we can organise lorry mounted cranes to deliver your sauna to its new home. We can also build on site if access is a restriction.

SAUNA ADD-ONS

Exterior cladding

Natural / unstained FSC certified wood

Electric or Wood fired heater + sauna stones

Our beautiful HUUM sauna stoves feature traditional sauna stones, no matter the energy source, and can be fitted with an optional mobile app WiFi solution for remote controlling your sauna

100% sheep wool insulation

We are very proud to use 100% sheep’s wool insulation, which is fully breathable, offers superior thermal performance and keeps our saunas completely natural throughout. It is also fully reusable and eventually fully biodegradable, protecting and supporting generations to come.

We love it and we love supporting the sheep’s wool industry.

High specification single strip specialist sauna LED lighting

Our saunas can reach very high temperatures, so it is necessary to use specialist equipment specifically developed for high heat and humidity. Unlike infrared saunas, our traditional outdoor saunas are heated with stoves and the lighting is soft and warm.

Architectural Design

We have worked closely with an architect who specialises in timber structures to ensure every design element functions to a very high specification. Every detail is considered to ensure our Wildhut saunas are of the highest quality and built to endure the British climate so you can be sure they stand the test of time.

Double glazed windows

We like to keep our sauna cosy and private. Bespoke sizes available as an Add-on

Structural Engineering

We have consulted a structural engineer to ensure our saunas are strong, robust, and safe

Glazed sauna door and specialist hinges

Our doors are toughened glass, and our hinges are specifically developed to withstand high temperatures as befits such a truly premium product.

Door furniture & hardware

The handles are hand made from the same timber we use for our sauna, to match the aesthetic and high-end design details you will find throughout our high end traditional outdoor sauna cabins.

FEATURES

Wildhut were delighted to have been commissioned to undertake the design, build and installation of Cornwall’s first cliff top commercial wood-fired sauna. 

 

Conceived upon the mission to provide an extraordinary experience centred around wellbeing, leisure and community, we worked with the team to bring this ambitious cultural vision to life.

 

Sitting proudly atop the cliffs and comfortably accommodating up to ten people, this beautifully proportioned, glass fronted Wildhut Sauna looks out onto the Atlantic sea, offering its lucky guests extraordinary views of the breathtaking Cornish coastline.

 

Situated a mere ten minute uphill walk from the beach, the authentic wood-fired traditional outdoor sauna can be enjoyed for both private and group sessions year-round amidst a truly extraordinary setting.
