AWARD LEISURE NEWS
Saunas have been paramount in Finish culture for thousands of years and it isn’t difficult to see why - research has shown a saunas’ dry heat has profound effects on overall health, wellness and performance. Here are the top 5 benefits of sauna use:
Ease Aches and Pains
Heat from the sauna increases blood circulation and carries oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, which relieves muscle tension and improves joint stiffness. Consequently, saunas may help those with chronic pain and arthritis.
Boost Your Mood
Relaxing in a sauna helps your body to release endorphins, a feel-good chemical that has been proven to counteract stress and its negative impact on your body.
Sauna use can encourage a deeper, more relaxed sleep. After you visit a sauna, your body will cool down rapidly. This cool down process signals to your brain that it’s time to start producing melatonin - the sleep hormone.
As you sweat, your blood flow and circulation increase. At the same time, your pores open up and sweat flushes out bacteria that was trapped in them, resulting in less clogged pores, smoother skin and a healthier complexion.
Bring the Family Together
Nowadays, we spend more and more time in front of screens and less and less time talking to each other. There is no better place than a sauna to relax and reconnect with family members after a busy week.
Despite the multitude of benefits, saunas may not be appropriate for everyone. You should seek medical advice before using a sauna, particularly if you are pregnant or have health conditions. Here are some other general precautions:
• Do not drink alcohol before, during or after sauna use.
• Stay in no more than 20 minutes.
• Make sure to cool down gradually afterwards.
• Drink plenty of cool water before and after each sauna session.
• Do not use a sauna if you are ill.

Award Leisure provide a huge variety of luxury log cabins in all shapes and sizes, perfect to transform your garden space into a functional retreat. These premium cabins are built in Scandinavia with thick and durable timber meaning whatever you decide to use them for, they're built to last! They are also FSC certified, so you can rest assured that your Cabin is not only renewable, but it comes from forests that are managed responsibly. Award Leisure even have models that don’t require any planning permission, meaning you can begin your garden transformation with complete peace of mind.
See below Award Leisure’s 5 best uses for a log cabin – staying at home just got better!
For most of the UK, working from home is here to stay. However, many people have struggled to find an adequate spot in their home where they can get on with work undisturbed. It’s not difficult to see the advantages of setting up a garden office as we enter our second national lockdown - an idyllic commute, a distinct separation between work and home life, and a way to add value to your property. With amazing insulation and tonnes of space, a log cabin may be the answer to all of your telecommuting problems! For the perfect garden office, we recommend the Brookhaven Cabin.
Establishing a workout routine and making time for self-care is more important than ever. Regular exercise not only keeps you physically healthy but also improves your mental health by releasing endorphins, a powerful chemical in your brain that triggers a positive feeling in the body. With the gyms being closed, the sofa is calling and the temptation to let fitness slide during lockdown is real… unless you can bring the gym to you! A log cabin is the perfect way to keep your equipment safe and transform your garden space into a functional place to take care of your physical and mental health. A home gym is also a great way to add value to your property. We recommend the Hamptons Cabin for the idyllic home gym.
Having a pub at the bottom of the garden is everyone’s dream, especially during lockdown. Many of us feel like we are existing rather than living at the moment and us brits are missing going to the local pub at the weekend to unwind with family and friends. Don’t miss out and create your own pub in the garden at home! Transform your unused garden space into an amazing home bar where you can make treasured memories for years to come. The Michigan Cabin would make the perfect garden pub.
Every child dreams of having their very own garden playhouse to live out their adventures! However, a playhouse is not an easy thing to build for your little one, make it that much easier with our easy to assemble log cabins. You’ll have a fun family project on your hands, and it will surely make your children happy for years to come. During these times, it’s easy for children to become bored and restless with new restrictions, a playhouse may be the answer to your prayers to get your child off their iPad and outside in the fresh air. For the perfect garden playhouse, we recommend the Witchita Cabin.
Hot Tub Cabin
Our log cabins create the perfect hot tub enclosure and provide the benefits of a private retreat, protection from the outdoor elements, and a stunning addition to any garden. Enclosures allow you to enjoy your hot tub all year round, no matter the weather, while keeping out of sight of neighbours. Spend time with your loved ones whilst enjoying the benefits of hydrotherapy with an amazing British Hot Tub. The Georgia Cabin makes the complete hot tub enclosure!
Take the time this lockdown to really transform your outdoor space. With Award Leisure’s log cabin range, you can expect a truly luxurious product with unrivalled service from our friendly team. Browse our full log cabin range by clicking here!

Why Is Your Hot Tub Warranty Essential?
A warranty is a written guarantee, issued to the purchaser of a product by its manufacturer, promising to repair or replace it if necessary, within a specified period of time. Warranties are an essential factor to consider when shopping for your dream hot tub, to ensure its protection and longevity.
Do Your Research
A reputable manufacturer will always have their warranties available to view online and if they don’t, you should proceed with caution. Make sure to closely inspect their warranties and note down any questions you have, so you can ask the dealer directly.
You can rest with peace of mind when you buy a British Hot Tub™. Our luxury hot tubs are built to last, but to give you even more confidence in our products, we offer the complete warranty package. We can confidently say that our warranties are the best in the industry (research supplied on request).
10 Year Warranty on Shell & 5 Year Warranty on Shell Surface
Your British Hot Tub™ starts its life as a sheet of Aristech® Acyclic, it is then heated, and vacuum formed to take the shape of a hot tub. The acrylic is backed with Vinyl Ester Resin in a temperature-controlled environment and reinforced with 10-12 layers of hand rolled Fibreglass. These procedures ensure there is a perfect bond between the Acrylic and the Glass Fibre to eliminate the risk of structural damage or cracks that cause water loss. Finally, Steel Angle Iron is placed along the stress points of the shell for additional strength and support in specific structural areas. The result is a stain and fade resistant spa shell which is easy to clean and guaranteed to last a lifetime. We are so confident about the quality; we give you a 10-year warranty on the shell and a 5-year warranty on the shell surface.
5 Year Warranty on Cabinet
British Hot Tubs™ Vinyl Synthetic Cabinets are handmade at the factory. Each colour blends subtly into your garden environment and look as beautiful as a real wood finish. The cabinets are maintenance free and come with a 5-year guarantee.
2 Year Warranty on Plumbing
British Hot Tubs™ plumbing lines have external ribs that allow for the flexible water hoses to be connected, glued and griped securely. British Hot Tubs™ use Super-Sealed Barb & Clamp Plumbing. The clasps are made from anti-corrosive stainless steel and ensure quick and easy plumbing connections throughout the lifetime of your hot tub. The addition of sprung clasps ensures additional binding and guarantees the plumbing line connections are leak free. Plumbing comes with a 2-year warranty.
2 Year Warranty on Pumps
British Hot Tubs™ powerful pumps are among the most reliable and powerful in the hot tub industry and come with a 2-year warranty. The variable force pumps have two added features, low amperage resulting in reduced energy consumption and a fan cooling system with a cool air intake system to extend lifetime. They also double as low-speed circulation pumps for greater efficiency using only 1amp at low speed.
Our powerful pumps deliver over 240 gallons of water per minute via direct flow 3” pipes. Using minimum elbows, water pressure is not compromised, all pipework is measured so each jet delivers an even flow. This science result in every spa and every jet producing true flow, efficient water rotation, energy efficiency and longer lasting motors.
2 Year Warranty on Balboa Control Panel
Our Balboa digital control panel (touchscreen on Prime & Premium series) has an easy to read display screen, is waterproof, extremely durable and comes with a 2-year warranty. The user interface is easy to navigate, allowing you to control all the major components of your hot tub with ease. You can turn lights off and on, change light colour (if lighting package is installed), control jets, temperature and program filtration cycles. Your digital control panel will also warn you of any issues; so, if the hot tub is too hot or the heater is not getting enough water, your control panel will alert you immediately (spa series dependant).
2 Year Warranty on Heater
British Hot Tubs™ Balboa Heater element is made from Titanium, which is more resistant to corrosion. Corrosion is a common problem in UK hot tubs and is caused by both hard and soft and mineral build up. The Titanium heater is much better than standard heater elements and will enable you to get maximum use from your hot tub water without the need to continually drain, refill, and reheat your hot tub. We give you a 2-year warranty on your heater.
2 Year Warranty on Lighting
Our British Hot Tubs™ come standard with colour changing LED lighting, offering brilliant and colour intense illumination. We incorporate lighting in the shell, water features, cup holders, and cabinets to light up your outdoor space, oozing luxury and class. The results are utterly spectacular with a colour changing and flashing option, covering all the colours of the spectrum to create the perfect ambience. We give you a 2-year warranty on lighting.
1 Year Warranty on Pure Zone
British Hot Tubs™ built in Ozone Purification System comes with a 1-year warranty. Pure Zone™ creates ozone which removes microscopic organic bacteria matter which builds up in the bathing area, that would normally pass through the filter. Ozone is one of the most powerful neutralisers of bacteria known today. Our water care system produces energetic oxygen or 'ozone' that zaps most of these foreign contaminates.
6 Month Warranty on Pillows
Luxury padded pillows come standard in every British Hot Tub model for ultimate comfort. These pillows can easily be removed for cleaning when the hot tub is not in use and have a stylish British flag design. Pillows come with a 6-month warranty.
