Certificate of Excellence
Winner of the Tatler Life Changing Spa Award and Conde Nast Traveller Award for "Best Spa Retreat UK", Yeotown has, in a short time, carved out a new and definitive niche in the UK Wellness market. Located in North Devon, Yeotown's signature health and fitness 5 day escape is known as the Yeotox. It's a modern day physical, spiritual and mental cleanse which encourages you to live in the moment, get away from the routine, planning and timetables of everyday life. The much heralded Yeotox diet is designed to be a springboard towards optimum energy and vitality. In contrast to a traditional deprivation detox, juice cleanse or a fast, the programme consists of a colourful, nourishing and nutrient dense foods free from dairy, wheat, gluten, alcohol, caffeine, refined sugars and meat. Founded by Mercedes and Simon Sieff, it has fast become Britain's leading haven of health with a visionary mission being to create a programme that educates the whole person both in body and mind. Yeotown has developed its offering as a sustainable and inspiring alternative to boot camps, fat farms and luxury spas. At Yeotown, its believed healthy living is not just the absence of disease but rather an attitude towards ourselves, others and life. Going beyond just working out and sipping green smoothies, the programme works hard to cultivate optimum health in both body and mind in equal measure. Throughout the 5 days we aim to fine tune habits so that living, eating and feeling well gets easier and more rooted in our day to day routine. The Yeotox programme aims to be challenging and push boundaries. Yeotown guests leave feeling stronger and healthier with a real sense of achievement. The multi-dimensional programme includes stunning coastal hiking, core fitness, upper body strengthening sessions, cooking lessons, yoga for both yogis and non-yogis alike, cycling, surfing, meditation, massage and a host of other inspiring activities.
