This was my 4th visit to NuBeginnings. After an ankle injury and a year not exercising I really needed to get things back in order, and despite now only living 4 miles away, I knew I needed to come here. Things are still as good as before, Jennie and Dave work hard to keep the place running smoothly. Some things... More

I went to NuBeginnings after reading a magazine article & years of struggling with my weight. It is expensive but it is also good value for money; also the investment I made in myself helped me to keep going and with my determination to succeed. The house itself is a beautiful Victorian rectory set on a hillside overlooking Ilfracombe, my... More

I spent ages searching on the internet for a health spa where I would be pampered and miraculously lose weight - and most seemed for focus indulging the senses, until I found this place - which seemed more serious and realistic, and better value for money and results. And it turned out to be a good choice. Day one, check... More

I went to NuBeginnings a couple of months ago. I have never written on trip advisor before but felt compelled to do so when I read the reviews about the chef, Dave. I thought they were totally unjustified. The food was of an excellent quality and so well presented. He always explained what everything was. I think that snacks are... More

I don't understand the references to 5 Star below - this is not a hotel or a relaxing holiday, it is a boutique boot camp and a very good one at that. I stayed for 1 week a few weeks ago and can not fault the experience in any way, I worked hard at all of the activities, I loved... More

I'm going to say exactly what I told the management after my stay...as a holiday break this was really good...excellent fitness team, excellent massage therapists and lovely location.
