Detox Delight
Sep 2020 • Solo
I cannot recommend The Milestone Detox highly enough. I did a 7 day detox at a time that I was feeling burnt out and in definite need of some R&R, as well as a dose of TLC...

Genuinely caring, informed, authentic and just excellent at what they do - Helena and her wonderful team gently guided me through the week (this is my second time here in 4 years), by the end of which I was SO much lighter and brighter, both physically and mentally.

Helena bespokes the programme to your very needs and wants, is there for you every step of the way and is like a serene and incredibly well versed fairy Godmother.

The house, bedrooms, gardens and surrounding area is all breathtaking. My fellow detoxers were lovely (new friends for life) and I can only hope to return for my hat-trick one day.

Thank you Helena and the Milestone Detox team - your place in my head and heart is now firmly cemented! x

Total mind and body reset.
Mar 2020
I went in feeling broken: disconnected from life, overwhelmed, exhausted, stressed, puffy and grey in colour. Within 24 hours I had colour back in my cheeks, felt calm and relaxed and had the longest sleep I've experienced in years. For me this retreat was a way to learn how to be kind to myself in mind and body, and Helena shone the light the whole way. I think i will look back and appreciate this weekend as a critical turning point for me. I'm eternally grateful and highly recommend. Much love x

What an authentic, transparent report of where you were at, Zoe! I'm sure so many people can relate to your starting point and what good news that you have stepped out of that place and onto a new hope-filled path where you know what to do and are getting on and DOING IT. I'm so amazed by how quickly and thoroughly you are implementing so that you can continue with the good work you've started. Well done. Always love yourself. Always look after yourself. You are loved and will always be looked after. xx

I went to one of the raw food dinner evenings and it was amazing! I loved the food and Helena is so knowledgeable and inspirational on healthy eating. I came away feeling that I would have loved to have stayed for longer!

We had SUCH a great time at the table, didn't we?! Everyone was so relaxed and happy, which is amazing given how most of us had only just met. Thank you for coming, we look forward to seeing you again at another supper party - and you're always welcome to stay the night for another inspiring meal the following morning! Blessings. x

7 Day Juice Detox
Nov 2019 • Solo
The Milestone Detox has saved my life and changed my life. I am very overweight and needed something to kick-start me on to a new lifestyle. I have always overeaten and had a strong connection with emotional eating. I had two liebust sessions whilst I was at the retreat which has certainly put to rest a number of triggers that I have had to overeat. In addition Helena's encyclopedic knowledge about food and health was extremely informative and helpful. I have been home for two weeks. To be honest the first week was straightforward but the second week has been much harder. However I don't plan on giving up. The Milestone Retreat has given me the resources to build on to take me forward. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Thank you.

We KNOW that you will overcome the daily challenges and now that you have some tools in your bag, can repair and construct the life via the body, you've been invested with and called to do. We look forward to singing "Hallelujah" with you as you reach your goals, one at a time.

Life Changing
Nov 2019
From beginning of my stay all the way through to the end, I felt as though I was royalty. The deep levels of love and kindness for my well being gave me the strength to persist even when I found it challenging physically. Not only did I see massive breakthrough in my physical health but I attained so my wisdom and knowledge on how to continue my healing process. Helena and her team of experts were outstanding on every level and totally committed to us personally in that I felt they were invested in our journey as much if not more than we were. The ten days were dripping with excellence and not only do they save lives but lives are changed forever. I'm so grateful for all they invested into me and I believe it will stay with me for life.
On a practical level, the accommodation and facilities were outstanding.

Thank you for your review, we, as a team, collectively admired how you put your everything into the programme and extracted all you could, and more, by your commitment and dedication. By using the power plate and trampoline on a daily basis, which some of our clients avoid, you worked your lymph and circulation system to the max and consequently had outstanding results. So well done, YOU! We're all very excited about your healing and the testimony of HOPE your life is bringing to others...and we look forward to seeing you again in the New Year!

Amazing stay, beautiful clean stunning house
Nov 2019
I stayed at the Milestone Detox to detox. Being a busy consultant with a few businesses doesn't give you enough time to R&R. The detox was wonderful and was made even more peaceful in the environment and felt supported through the whole stay. I stayed in a beautiful en-suite room which had every convenience I needed. There are a whole range of treatments such as infrared sauna, PEMF Mat Sessions, Pilates, Chi Machine Sessions, beautiful cotswold walks and amazing views, exercise power plate, huge trampoline outside and SO much more! I've had a great experience sharing with a group of strangers who are now friends and would recommend this to anyone wanting; time out, R&R, become healthier, learn about your health and products to take away with you. It's a really good body pamper time with lots of massages!!

When people come as strangers and leave as friends, the mother in hen in me clucks in delight and joy at gathering and creating "family". You are a delight and blessing wherever you go, I'm sure, as the joy and knowledge you already have spills out of you and is infectious! Your hunger for knowledge and dedication to implementation is truly an inspiration, both to us as team and to the other clients and we look forward to continuing to be a part of your ongoing wellness journey. Those teams you run are lucky to have you!

GOLD protocol ( 7 days )
Nov 2019 • Solo
If you are looking for a unique opportunity to learn about how to nourish your body ( and mind ) from real experts then I would encourage you ( without reservation ) to think about the Milestone retreat with Helena and Johnathan . Given what is included it is VERY good value compared to other detox offerings I have experienced .

It is like coming to the best university of nutrition , where complex research is distilled and explained simply and always applied and you get the chance to practice . It’s odd to be on such a highly organised programme that feels so incredibly relaxed !

And on top of that you will have the opportunity to experience the ‘kindest’ health focussed spa experiences - powerful Pilates , wonderful massages and even colonics from the effervescent Liz are manageable and clearly beneficial .

Nothing here is superficial , everything tailored carefully to the different people who come for their different needs . Our lovely group ( aged ranging 21 - 59) left with one thing in common - a sincere belief that we have the confidence and knowledge to make better choices that will impact our health .

Helena even sent us home with carrier bags of nutritional mega stars so we could get off to a good sustainable journey at home and at work .

At Milestone you are also embraced into their local Cotswold community , I am even taking home some lovely pottery having met a local potter on one of our Cotswold walks .

The programme at Milestone is one of the most thoughtful , safe and balanced experiences you will have . We are returning as a family to have a cookery day together with Helena in the New Year . I think its the best Christmas present I can give to my young adult children so they can make better choices .

Thank you Helena and Johnathan for the deep detox experience you have both created . Thank you for the pounds I have left behind . My gut is endlessly grateful .

Thank you for your thoughtful review, we felt honoured to serve you and that you chose to come and stay even though you live in the same county. "When the student is ready, the teacher appears." And YOU embraced all that was being shared with an inquisitive mind and open heart, so you were able to absorb all that was presented. It is a joy to share in this environment, where people WANT to know - and it draws out our very best! We look forward to seeing you again in the New Year!

Juice detox
Mar 2019 • Solo
I had a great time visiting Helene and her team. I spend a week on a juice detox retreat with a great group of people and made new friends. I never really felt hungry, I never really felt bad. There was always something to do, from health related workshops to infrared saunas, to beautiful countryside walks and many other things. The house is beautiful and we where looked after extremely well all week. I can definitely recommend this place

We absolutely loved having you, thank you for coming! It was a wonderful week and of course, the best guest of all was THE SUNSHINE and weren't we blessed to be able to sit outside on the patio in sunshine in MARCH! The Spring Equinox weeks are THE BEST times to detox and you all had excellent results. Look forward to welcoming you back March 2020, if not before. Big hug xx

Absolutely wonderful experience - can’t recommend enough!
Mar 2019 • Solo
Ive had such a wonderful time! Lots and lots of relaxation, fabulous treatments, walks, infrared saunas, naps, journaling and all in the most beautiful surroundings. Some really fun activities that are social and relaxing like making all sorts of potions with essential oils and face mask. Some amazing life changing therapies in their too, like Lifebusting and Full Body Scan with the latest technology that gives you an eye opening look at your organs, cells, blood flow and bones! Helena and all her team are absolutely wonderful - so knowledgable, super relaxed and friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have exactly what you need and feel at home! The groups are small which was perfect - really gave us a chance to go on a journey together and have lots of laughs. Also, you feel completely free to be as involved or not involved in activities as you want. We all loved it and have all decided to meet back here next year! If you need to recuperate mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally or you just need a treat - this is 100 percent the place to go! I can’t recommend it enough!!

Truly healing and wonderful experience
Jan 2019 • Solo
I did the 3 day special juice detox and honestly it exceeded my expectations. I had never done a detox before but after a year of high stress and health problems I wanted to do something healing for my body and mind. I couldn’t have chosen a better place.

The milestone house is absolutely beautiful, tranquil and homely. I stayed in the Toddington room which was beautifully decorated and the bed was super comfy, it even had an earthing sheet to give you a better nights sleep. On arrival all guests get a comprehensive welcome pack and lovely hamper of natural goodies. I fell in love with the the facial oil!

Helena and her wonderful team are all very passionate, extremely knowledgeable and very caring. They made me feel at home and part of the family straight away.

The juices are all fresh and customised to your health needs and the evening broths are also delicious, at no point did I feel hungry.

The workshops were very informative and have opened my eyes to looking at food differently. They were also super fun, I especially enjoyed the almond milk making and face mask sessions.

The detox included colonic hydrotheropy. I had never had it before and was a bit unsure about the procedure but Liz (the practitioner) helped me feel at ease and I am so glad I had it done as it has made a big difference to my digestive system.

The Pilates morning class are a great start to the day and the sauna and beauty treatments are also superb! I highly recommend the reflexology and body massage treatments.

I didn’t book the optional Naturopathic Consultation and Quantum Magnetic Bio-Resonance Scan as I didn’t really know much about it but will definitely do it next time as it was highly recommended by other guests.

Thank you Helena and team for looking after me so well and educating me on how to look after my body. I have certainly learned a lot, my skin feels incredible and I feel a lot healthier and energised.

Helena thank you also for the walk and for your inspiring words.

It was truly a wonderful retreat and money well spent. I will definitely be booking another one soon.
