On visiting the sauna, regular guest Sophie said: “I highly recommend iglu. There's a private place to get changed, cold showers, an area to sit and chill out, a cold plunge pool and of course the sauna itself. So reasonable and I felt amazing afterwards!”

Zita, a guest visiting Hebden Bridge for the day said the sauna was: “an amazing experience that was a perfect end to a windy walk across the moors.
