In the 19th Century, the shepherd’s hut was a haven of warmth and comfort in the fields so that the shepherd could look after his flock day and night for extended periods of time.

At The Garage, our shepherd’s hut sauna is a haven of warmth and comfort to relax and cleanse your body.

Not so long ago, all saunas were enjoyed outdoors – close to the house, and perhaps close to a lake. The special aroma from the sauna makes for a unique bathing experience and is the purist’s way to sauna – and that’s the way we like it.

So brave the elements and be first to experience our shepherd’s hut log sauna.

Our steam room operates at a high temperature allowing your body to undergo detoxifying perspiration. This has a therapeutic effect on your hair and skin as well as relaxing your muscles.

The room is maintained at high air humidity through the enriched permanent steam. This strengthens the respiratory system and stimulates the release of toxins – well worth a visit.

For hundreds of years, societies around the world have found rejuvenation in the calming and healing pleasures of warm water.

From as far back as the ancient Greeks, tales are spoken of the medicinal healing powers of bathing in natural hot springs. The modern hot tub trend started in the 1960s in California, with people modifying large oak wine barrels into private hot soaking tubs. At The Garage we’ve moved things on a bit and given you a choice of three different experiences for your bathing journey.

The first pit stop is a hydrotherapy tub for a soak and relaxing massage. Then, jump in to the next tub to immerse yourself in a hot relaxing bath. If you’re brave enough, jump into the plunge tub – perfect for cooling down after the shepherd’s hut log sauna or steam room.

The ambient salt relaxation room is a controlled, relaxing halotherapy environment, with salt blocks forged by nature hundreds of years ago.

Natural salt therapy dates back over 200 years and is used around the world in hospitals and health retreats to strengthen the immune system. The salt is cleansing and stimulating and provides drug-free and clinically proven relief for many respiratory and skin conditions such as asthma, psoriasis and eczema.

Sit back, breathe in the benefits and enjoy the warm soft glow that emanates from the salt blocks.

When you find our Secret Garden you can swan around in our outdoor hot tub.

Relax in hot water with air bubbles massaging your body whilst breathing in the fresh countryside air. Or climb into the warm detoxifying cocoon of our shepherd’s hut log sauna.

Lounge in our garden after your sauna in a nest of cushions and blankets or wrap yourself in your fluffy dressing gown and sit in our hammock chairs by the open fire with a hot chocolate.

Our secret garden is perfect for enjoying the spa during the warm summer as well as during a bright, crisp autumn day.
