I have been on retreat 3 times now, and love it! Recently I decided to try the Dorset venue and fell in love with it. So homely and peaceful. A beautiful house with lovely bedrooms, a roaring fire and a pool. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is at the bottom of a mile-long drive, so is also incredibly... More

Wake up work outs before breakfast followed by Coastal and rural walks before lunch led by Julie and ably assisted by Bella the dog . A variety of fitness activities follow with Julie and visiting instructors and a choice of swimming or relaxation before dinner. Choice... More

What an amazing retreat. It was hard without ANY sugar but Jul's meals & snacks mean you never go hungry. The exercise is excellent tailored to your own ability, long walks in the local countryside, swimming, sauna, pilates, yoga, kettlebell workout, wake up workout all with excellent tuition. Complimentary body scrub, lots more treatments available with excellent therapist. I can... More

I was lucky enough to partake of the health and fitness holiday hosted by the Body Retreat in France. It was the best thing I have ever done for myself. One week of clean eating, great and accessible exercise with lovely, motivated ladies. I cannot recommend it enough and will definitely be making this an annual event!

A fabulous sugar detox retreat in the Somerset countryside. The wonderful Juls ran inspiring workshops and hypnotherapy alongside producing the most nutritious and tasty food. she is a fountain of knowledge and really understands everything there is to know about food and its effects on the body and mind. I've learnt how to eat consciously and mindfully, curb my sugar... More

I found the Body Retreat after a search for a retreat whilst in between jobs, hoping to lose a little weight and de-stress before starting my new role. I had read the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor, but I can genuinely say that it well exceeded (my already high) expectations.... From the moment you arrive you are welcomed into the... More

I did the Body Retreat's Andalusian holiday last October and I'm excited to have just booked another visit this June in their Somerset location. Pardon my American, but this is some next-level s**t. Don't be intimidated! And don't hesitate to book your visit! Their programs are designed for every level, and I mean that sincerely. I consider myself an athlete... More

I was encouraged out of my comfort zone in a safe way with the exercise classes and lovely walks with Julie and well behaved Bella -the beautiful dog. Jules kept us well nourished with her delicious cooking showing... More

I loved my week at The Body Retreat in the Somerset. Apart from getting fitter, losing eleven pounds and inches off my waist and hips, it was also very insightful and a really good fun!

Overall a very good experience. Juls cooks the most fabulous food which is mostly from her own recipes. She willingly shared her expertise on different types of food which was essential when learning how to eat to reduce stress. The visiting therapists, speakers and yoga teachers were well chosen by Julie. The long and longer walks in the local countryside... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
