Our Story 


Water and Stone was created by a local family with a vision of changing their own lives and that of the community around them. Post Covid reflections paved the way for alternative ways of thinking, acting and existing. Ross and Alissa with their 3 children embarked on a mission for change. 


Cold water immersion was becoming a hit nationwide and they realised the need for heat alongside the cold after experiencing some authentic practices in Lithuania. They began to explore the idea of experiencing saunas regularly alongside the cold in their backyard. An offer to buy a friends mobile sauna presented itself and then the concept of building the first outdoor sauna, ice tank and spa for the local community in Cornwall began at C space in Newquay.


In November 2021, Water & Stone was born.


Our Mission

At Water & Stone, we believe in providing a

truely authentic sauna experience.


We aim to improve the mental, physical, and emotional health of all visitors through a deep relaxation in a quiet natural environment.  We have created a year round comfortable and functional space for practitioners of various styles to come, to train, to teach and to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. 

We are focused on promoting the new Uk sauna culture for future  generations with The British Sauna Society with Ross being a committee member. 

Our company is also now building, designing, importing and selling some of the best UK saunas.

We also offer events at music more private settings where we educate all the clients.

We install domestic and commercial installations for hotels and businesses and are currently forming our first international franchisee in the French Alps.

Through all our channels you will have a deep connection to a true sauna experience. Its the culture of the sauna we would like people to integrate into their lives as practice similar to yoga as opposed to a one off spa day.

The Water & Stone Experience

We focus on excellent design and equipment.


Our dedication and commitment is reflected in our collaboration with Lithuania, from the sauna builders, to the highest quality sauna masters which provide training for our staff and others within our venues.

We work with worldwide sauna facilitators to bring life changing sauna ceremonies.  

Our new spa venue is immersed within beautiful surroundings nestled within the beautiful Cornish nature, which provides a deeper healing element within the spa experience.

Our approach involves working the energy into the sauna steam, embracing the various different sweat cultures, and perfecting the balance of steam and heat.


- Our stoves are of the highest quality and produce more steam!

- Uniquely positioned ceramic stones positioned in the belly of the stove produce this high quality steam.

- Fresh air and proper ventilation are paramount for the optimum balance of steam and air.

Hot Sauna


Pouring water on hot sauna rocks causes shearing during the creation of steam, this generates negative ions. At Water & Stone are unique sauna equipment produces more steam than a standard sauna stove.


Negative ions exist for a longer time in an enclosed space, there is increased opportunity for interaction with the human body before the negative ions have a positive ion and become neutralized.

Researchers looked at 100 years of studies and found evidence that negative ions could:

  • help regulate sleep patterns and mood

  • reduce stress

  • boost immune system function

  • increase metabolism of carbs and fats

  • kill or inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, viruses, and mold species

*  reduced seasonal affective disorder in many cases.

* lower depression scores,
