Went in March. Natropath's there during my stay were really knowledgeable and nice: Kirsty, Danielli and Laura. However, decor is rather dated, and room changes were constantly made with those sharing which is unsettling during a detox experience. Questions as to whether the fruit and veg for juicing was really organic?? and Juices were kept the same day in and... More

I've never been to a health retreat before so this was a new experience. I've done detox's at home but none of them have ever been as relaxing or as easy as it was at Amchara. I spent 7 days there, It was the perfect week. I went on my own and I met some really lovely people. The staff... More

I would recommend Amchara highly to anyone looking for a health retreat. Having recently spent 5 wonderfully relaxing days there I can confirm first hand that every aspect of my trip was excellent. Wonderful staff, amazing juices, stunning surroundings and accommodation and an outstanding result of 10lb weight loss during my 5 day detox! I'll be going back every year.

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
