If you are looking for a place to get yourself back on track physically and mentally then this is a great place to go. The location is fantastic as is the program. The quality of professionals who guide and support is exceptional. Truly a great opportunity to detox, lose weight and relax.

I was very nervous, having never been on a retreat before, but was quickly put at ease by the laid back atmoshere, friendly and helpful staff and other guests. There was no pressure to do anything. I did do quite a lot however, and really enjoyed the yoga, workshops and walks - on my own as well as with others.... More

Stayed a week. You need the right mindset to go there, I.e. To want to make a change for the better, to be ready to try something a bit radical, to feel hungry and a little grumpy at first. If you go there expecting a glass of champagne and facial treatment, look for a spa. You have only juice during... More

I spent a wonderful 5 days at Amchara with my partner and we both felt that it was an excellent experience. We are both fairly knowledgeable regarding health and nutrition and felt that the care taken with the juices, supplements and minimal! solid food was first rate, as was the level of the nutritional advice, and the all round support...

I first came here 2 years ago and really enjoyed my stay. It was my first detox and I had nothing to compare it too. Having since visited three other English retreats I can honestly say that Amchara is lightyears ahead of the others. I am just returning from my 2nd visit here.The staff are genuinely caring and extremely well... More

I spent two amazing weeks in Anchara. Everthing about my experience was positive. The rooms and grounds were cosy and warm, the staff were very supportive and friendly and between the yoga, Tai Chi classes, guided walks in the beautiful countryside and daily lectures on healthy eating, the days just flew past. I managed to lose a stone in weight... More

As a newbie to this, I went with an open mind. This place is not a 5 star hotel , it is what it says on the tin. It's a retreat. And a wonderful one at that. The staff are AMAZING - so knowledgeable and they really care. The visiting specialists are fantastic, very knowledgeable, and the whole atmosphere here... More

This was a great experience with lots of support from the friendly and staff. The juices were designed in line with my individual assessment. The yoga and country walks were particularly enjoyable and even though I had had limited exercise experience I was supported by the experienced staff and came away feeling so much fitter and refreshed. The raw food... More

This was the first juice detox I had ever done so I was very nervous. Straight away the staff made me feel very comfortable and reassured me that I would be ok and that most people don't feel hungry during their stay. I met such lovely people there who really added to my experience. The staff really do make every... More

My stay at Amchara was absolutely amazing! I had the most wonderful experience there and left feeling clean inside and out, emotionally and physically. Detoxing with the support of the friendly and knowledgeable staff was easier than I had anticipated and I learnt so much about healthy living and well being. The treatments were the best I have ever had... More
