Set in the Northamptonshire countryside, Homefield Grange offers weekly and wekeend detox and weight loss programmes for up to 20 people.
This is the perfect place to come to rid your body of all of those long term excesses – it’s where Kate Spicer came on her quest to get to a size zero for the TV programme ‘Super Skinny Me’.
Although the sprawling manor house is warmly furnished, the programme is serious and food spartan.
Lulled into a false sense of security after seeing our bedroom, with it’s inviting king-sized bed, marble bathtub and working fireplace, we realised after meeting the retreat;s founder; Suzanne Peck, a Nutritionist and Naturopath, there was to be no gain without pain.
Guests consume only fresh juices, salads and vegetable broths during their stay.
At the beginning and end of our visit we underwent a colonic cleanse, which removes everything that has been stored up over the years.
This combined with lymphatic cellulite and body brushing treatments, made OK! feel like we had been handed a new body.
You can do as little or as much as you want at Homefield Grange. If you’re keen to get fit there’s daily Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and stretching classes, as well as a gym. OK! highly recommends having a blood analysis test. The results can tell you how your body is working and what areas need to be addressed.
OK! lost 7lb during the five day stay (9lb is the norm) and we’ve already booked in for another retreat. We left feeling like our body had been well and truly cleansed inside and out.
