The natural solution

Kernow Springs have just the thing for a luxury wild spa experience without the sting of an added energy bill. 

Many of us are beginning to consider ways in which we might cut back when it comes to our monthly energy bills now that costs are rising, and any dreams of a traditional hot tub may feel further from reach than ever. However, Kernow Springs has something in store that might have you re-considering giving up on your luxury dream. 

It all started for Kernow Springs when Cornwall-based, former boat builder and father of two, Martin Dean, built a couple of wood-fired hot tubs for his garden after sampling their relaxing delights whilst on a family vacation. Working with different wood types has always been second nature to Martin and word rapidly spread of his beautiful back yard creations. Demand then soared to the point where he decided to launch his own company – Kernow Springs – building and supplying eco-friendly wood fired hot tubs to the south west.

For centuries, different cultures around the world have recognised the many benefits associated with soaking in a traditional wooden hot tub. The Greeks, the Romans and the Japanese regard it as a ritual – an act of comforting the body and nourishing the soul. With the wood-fired hot tubs of Kernow Springs, the occasional wiff of smoke and the crackle of the fire is a comforting reminder that the water in your hot tub is being heated by burning carbon neutral ‘coppiced’ wood.

Now in collaboration with Water and Stone, to which Kernow Springs supply their beautifully crafted wild spas, it is easier than ever to experience your very own taste of outdoor luxury. Made from 100% natural materials and completely electricity free, Kernow Springs’ wood-fired wild spas are an idyllic off-grid solution that come free of any surprise energy bills, and installation is a breeze. Using his extensive knowledge and experience, Martin is leading the way in the industry of wood-fired hot tubs here in the south west.
