Our cosy wellness is buildt like a small summer farm yard. The sauna and the showers are buildt in with hundreds of years old timber from an old barn. The infrared cabin is buildt as a stone hut. We also used other old wood materials and some old doors showing history and culture from Hindsæter and the surroundings.
