Tory Urban Retreat aims to cater for every relaxation desire to promote a stress free, balanced and healthy life.

Newcomers to sauna *

Please be aware that while our sauna has etiquette on mixed gender Informal Morning Sessions requiring patrons to wear a towel around your waist, there are elements of nudity in certain areas. These are by the plunge pool and the showers. If you are not comfortable with mixed gender nudity, (or not sure how you feel about this), we recommend that you visit the sauna on a single gender day or make a Private Booking. Monday's are Men's Only and Tuesday's are Women's Only days.

For people from all walks of life, we will take you to whatever goal you can imagine... Finnish Sauna | Tory Urban Retreat

Much has been made of the health benefits of sauna bathing. With good reason. Physically, nothing is more reinvigorating than a deep, healthy sweat every day. Tension fades. Muscles unwind. Mentally, we emerge relaxed, revived and ready for whatever the day may bring. The body’s response to gentle, persistent heat is well-documented and proven day in and out by people all over the world. 

Our large & spacious Finnish sauna will relax, improve your overall health, and enhance your well-being.

The Finnish sauna is complemented by our beautiful, tranquil super large plunge pool set in lush surroundings for the perfect sauna experience.

SAUNA BOOKING SESSIONS EXPLAINED  -

To provide everyone with sufficient personal space & a relaxing environment we are now operating the sauna in 2 different styles of Booking Sessions. These sessions will be 90 minutes long – this includes your changing time. There will be a limit of 6 people per session. If you are a habitual sauna addict and want to secure your weekly/fortnightly spot then please get in touch or book online. 

These sessions are separated into 2 groups – 

1/ Shared Sauna Bookings –You can book a sauna session where you will be sharing the sauna with up to 5 patrons. Sauna Etiquette applies for everyone’s comfort. You can either book your spot online, call us or take your chances and head up to The Retreat. These sessions are first in first seated and when the 10 spots are full you’ll have to choose another session. A wait list is available online & sometimes spaces come free - we'll then contact you if this is the case. These sessions are available all week unless the sauna has been booked privately. 

2/ Private Sauna Bookings by arrangement – You can either give us a call or email us to arrange to book a sauna session for your own private use and share the session with whoever you like. You are welcome to have a bigger group - please see Pricing for further details. The great thing about Private Bookings is that they open the sauna up to being an even more relaxed environment for yourself and your group. Within these private sessions you can choose what your group can wear in the sauna (or wont!) - we can now provide you with greater freedom of choice which is wonderful for us all. You can come alone, with friends, partners and your family – children are most welcome but need to be supervised at all times.

Please note that our Prime Time Private Sauna Bookings cost more due to the huge popularity of these 2 timeslots (This price is for up to 8 people). They are the 5.30pm and 7pm sessions. 

Our longstanding Men’s and Women’s Only days are still ongoing (Be careful that you book on the correct gender day!).  Plus our popular Rise & Shine morning special is still available from 10-11am for you early birds who want a reduced priced sauna.

Please see our timetable below for Sauna Hours, session details & Pricing tab for costs.
