About Motts Sauna

Where wellness meets wilderness

Our Story

Motts Sauna wasn’t born from a business plan, but from a yearning for a deeper connection with nature and a holistic approach to well-being. Captivated by the transformative power of wild saunas experienced on travels, we envisioned creating a similar sanctuary closer to home. This dream took root in the stunning southeast Cornwall, where the beauty of nature and the invigorating embrace of the sea intertwined perfectly.

Handcrafted saunas became the heart of our vision. We believe in the quality and authenticity these structures offer, ensuring a truly immersive experience. Sustainability is also at the core of our values. We source local, eco-friendly materials for our saunas and operate with a deep respect for the surrounding environment.

Ultimately, Motts Sauna is more than just a place to sweat. It’s an invitation to reconnect with yourself and the natural world. It’s a chance to unwind, revitalise, and emerge feeling renewed, both physically and mentally. We invite you to join us on this transformative journey.

When you come to one of our saunas you are not coming to consume something. You are coming to have an experience. To slow down. To tune in. To connect.

This experience is about being not doing. Its simple and authentic and nourishing. Come ready to unlock your own personal health and well being experience and have fun. Whatever is happening in your life the sauna and surrounding nature will support you.

Sweat it forward:
Sharing the Power of Wellness

At Motts Sauna, we believe the transformative power of wild saunas should be accessible to everyone. That’s why we’ve launched our “Sweat it Forward” initiative, a program that allows you to pay it forward and offer the gift of well-being to someone in need.

Each month, we dedicate a limited number of sauna sessions at a reduced rate of £8. Through Sweat it Forward, you can sponsor one of these sessions, making a sauna experience possible for someone who may not otherwise be able to afford it due to financial constraints. By participating, you’re not only contributing to your own well-being when you visit Motts Sauna, but also fostering community wellness and inclusivity.

We encourage you to consider “Sweat it Forward” if you’d like to extend the benefits of a wild sauna experience to someone else
