Paus

Paus is a new Scandinavian lifestyle trend to appear in the Cambridgeshire countryside. Paus is inspired by the Scandis’ laid back lifestyle and love affair with water and wood. It is a new relaxation centre comprising wood fired, red cedar hot tubs and sauna in the picturesque hill top of Bourn. All the tubs are exposed to the natural elements so bathers can enjoy a canopy of vast sky and acres of rolling countryside

Paus is set to open in July and visitors will enjoy soaking in the wood fired tubs, whilst sipping a complimentary drink of choice. Cool pools provide an opportunity to refresh before heading to the Terraza where a range of delicious, healthy meze can be enjoyed sat by the open fire. PAUS will also be hosting a number of exclusive events throughout the year, from outdoor cinemas to yoga, hands-on workshops and author’s readings. Tickets will be on a first come first served basis.

Tickets will range from £35 to £80 for a day’s relaxation and can be purchased from the PAUS website and memberships will be available nearer the launch. Walk-ins are welcome but this will be on a first come first served basis, as space is limited.
