More traditional retreat than spa, this is a beautiful place where you can escape from reality for a while. The location is very peaceful with minimal mobile phone reception and the surroundings and alternative treatments on offer encourage reflection and contemplation more than superficial pampering. The rooms are basic but clean and very comfortable and the vegetarian menu is very... More

I love this place; I have been several times. Granted it is not an elaborate spa and that is what I like about it. It is very tranquil and very relaxed. There is no military schedule to stick to or to feel obliged to stick for fear you won't fit in with the rest of the group. This is a... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights in mid January. It was wonderful, a great place to get away from it all, clear your mind and feel totally relaxed. The owners (Dominic and Lisa) and their family (I had the pleasure of meeting Dominic's mother, she is such a stylish, friendly well traveled lady who I could have... More

I visited Middle Piccadilly on my own for a week at the beginning of Feb 2014. I had a 4 day Emergence Retreat and a 3 day juice detox. I came away feeling wonderful, renewed in both my body, as well as my mind and spirit. The shamanic healing was a very personal experience and really interesting, and it was... More

My friend treated me to a 2-night stay. Our twin-bedded room was warm, extremely clean and very comfortable with coffee/tea making facilities. Our room was just off the lounge and as we stayed in December, we were the only people there for the first night. This was useful because we had the lounge to ourselves. Also, our room was not...

Middle Piccadilly is very rural and very much a retreat with wonderful treatments on offer. Dominic and Lisa are very welcoming and I felt like I was wrapped in a warm blanket. A real sense of caring, nothing too much trouble and you were never bothered unless you wanted to be. Rooms, kitchen, lounge and treatment rooms are accessed off... More

A friend and I stayed here last week for two nights. I bought a KGB deal a year and a half ago for two nights full board plus a massage and a facial each. The retreat ( I would not call it a spa) is in the country with quite spacious grounds, but because of the weather we could not... More

I would not normally write a review but on this occasion I feel that I should share my wonderful experience at the Middle Piccadilly Rural Retreat. I chose to do the juice detox and come here on my own, from Scotland, for health reasons. I researched many similar retreats but after emailing Dominic ( the owner ) I felt he... More

Booked on impulse for a much needed rest. Stayed 2 nites and definitely felt better with complete peace and no wifi. Loved the aromatherapy treatment and reflexology and sunbathing in the garden. My room was cold and felt damp even on a very hot and sunny day. The bathroom (shared) was barely adequate and the food very poor value. I... More

Having been to several spa retreats this is not made from the same mould as it is smaller and more personal. The treatments are great and can be designed to you, I especially enjoyed the energising exfoliation massage and my wife loved the mud wrap and we both commented on the simplicity yet effectiveness of the facials which Lisa did...
