outdoor wood fired sauna cold plunge

about la’al sauna

la’al sauna; big dreams

At my woodfired, horse box Sauna you will have the opportunity to find time for yourself and reconnect with the elements.

Come and experience the heat of laalsauna in contrast to outdoor cold dipping in the lake.

Let nature be your spa. Here you will find space to relax, socialise and recharge your body and mind.

The sauna has L shaped seating on two levels and a stunning view through the glass door up into the tree canopy.  I use kiln dried logs sourced locally to power the sauna. And with insulation made from locally sourced sheep wool insulation at some point sheep have been wandering the Lakeland fells and are now keeping you toasty in the sauna.

our story so far

from horsebox to la’al sauna

Hi, my name is Debbie.  I grew up in Windermere and have been surrounded by the beauty of the Lake District all my life, out on the surrounding fells with the dog.

I really wanted to create a unique, authentic sauna experience that people could experience whilst visiting the Lake District which is how the idea for La’al Sauna came about. Inspired by the boom in the mobile sauna culture in other parts of the UK, I bought a vintage RICE horse box which I have lovingly transformed into the first wood-fired mobile sauna for in Cumbria.

what else do I need to know?

La’al Sauna is now sited st Low Wray Campsite on Lake Windermere for the Summer.

We are two minutes walk  from the Lake shoreline for a dip plus I have the cold tub on wheels back alongside the Sauna. So you can combine cold dips in the Lake or tub alongside the heat of the Sauna.  All dates are available to view and book here on the website.

When you arrive at Low Wray Campsite, park in the new arrivals car park which is free of charge and follow the signs for reception. We are a bit further along from there hiding in the trees and are positioned in a little clearing with outdoor seating and fairy lights.

There are changing rooms, showers and toilets on site which are free of charge plus a shop selling a range of hot and cold drinks, food, snacks, ice creams, beer and wine.

Visit the booking page to book seats or hire privately,  our FAQ’s page has more information.
