Booked a weekend break to Middle Piccadilly end of Nov 2011. Wanted somewhere to relax, run and eat some amazing raw food. Definitely ticks all the boxes. Had a fantastic room with the most comfiest bed, nice chill out area to kick back with a book and unwind, also got breakfast, lunch and tea included - fully prepared raw food. The food in itself was amazing without the fantastic surroundings and facility. The food was varied, well presented and very flavoursome. With every meal you had a freshly prepared juice, raw crackers, lovely dips and to top it off in the evening a very delicious dessert!! The plan was to eat raw, run and recharge the batteries. If you wish you can have treatments but I chose not to this time. I would definitely go back, you learn so much about the raw food and it gives you great ideas on what to make at home and how easy it really is if you have the know how and equipment.
Dominic's knowledge on raw food and what flavours work together are fantastic, all the family were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. They left you to get on with what you wanted to do but were on hand should you need anything.
There is also an amazing meditation/yoga facility you can use to. Brilliant surroundings for running and cracking some hills to :)
Meeting Dominic and his family goes to show how incorporating raw, yoga/meditation in to your life can be of great benefit to your well being. We all need to de-stress and take time for ourselves and this is what you get here.
