Looking at some of the popular travel trends for 2024, it seems that saunas are the new hot tubs. It’s a hot travel trend for 2024! We’ve seen the Scandinavians do it and now it’s our turn.  Research has shown that saunas help lower the risk of heart-related disease, while athletes and wild swimmers swear by them.  Saunas are a fantastic way to destress and detox, and the wood-fired sauna on the decking on the Cwtch overlooks the river Wye. Imagine lying in your private sauna, basking in the warmth, listening to the gentle crackle of the fire and watching kingfishers, herons and the occasional otter go by. For wellness lovers, this is truly a unique sauna experience.
