HAMSTEAD RETREATS – TESTIMONIALS
Juice cleanse Nov 2017
Having signed up some months ago for the juice cleanse, as the day approached I was rather apprehensive as well as looking forward to three days’ complete rest. Now on the third day I feel tired but invigorated – nothing to do with the wonderful therapists, location and of course restorative dogs! I will be back next year.
A 3 day juice cleanse at Hamstead is the perfect way to reboot your digestive system and body and declutter your mind. With a well-structured programme of treatments and juices Lucy and Camilla guided and supported us through it all. I shall return home with renewed energy and enthusiasm and put into practice all that I have learnt these last few days.
We had an amazing time I would look at the view forever. Thank you.
I would like to recommend Hamstead Retreats if you want/need to reboot your system into remembering what healthy eating and lifestyle is. I have just come back from a 4 day cleanse/juice fast there and feel amazing!! No more cravings, clear thinking, relaxed and generally more chilled…mostly! ☺️
Run by Lucy Peel (naturopath) and Camilla Read (massage therapist and reiki master) you will be professionally guided along the fasting process and held gently throughout with loving care and attention. This all takes place in a wonderfully healing environment (Camilla’s family home) on the Isle of Wight.
The weekend included yoga, massage, healing and epsom salt baths to name but a few of the delights on offer. I suffered very little considering we had no food, only vegetable juice and supplements, for 3 full days.
Like them on their Facebook page Hamstead Retreats and check out the ‘Events’ section for their upcoming events in 2018.
Book early !!!

Juice cleanse June 2018
This is my first cleanse/fast and I arrived without much knowledge at all. I have been so impressed by Lucy and Camilla’s technical knowledge and the gentle and practical way they have guided a group (with diverse experience) through the process. They have provided individual advice to all of us for our various ailments and reactions. The juices and broth and other supplements were all perfect and regular enough to keep us going. The yoga, treatments and meditation were really perfect for our moods. Hamstead is stunning and comfortable and I feel totally relaxed and calm. The written information is excellent and I am pleased to be able to take it home (so nicely bound). I can’t wait for next year already! Thank you Lucy and Camilla.
I came this time (was here for a fast Nov ’17) with my husband Jon. We both found that the fasting experience was made so much better because of the beautiful surroundings and the support from Lucy and Camilla and our lovely group of co-fasters! I’m feeling extremely relaxed and peaceful, the retreat is well organised and thought through. All the veg for the juices is organic. The treatments are fantastic – I had the most amazing massage from Liezu which was the icing on the cake for me. The beds are comfortable which is important. Yoga on the lawn in the sunshine this morning was a real treat. It was lovely to be able to have a swim this morning in the pool – what a treat and very bracing.

I enjoyed the experience a lot more than I thought I would! In fact I would strongly consider doing it again! A fantastic retreat with fantastic hosts.
“As a practitioner myself I was so looking forward to the Hamstead Retreat weekend, and it far exceeded all my expectations. From the moment we arrived I was overwhelmed by the peaceful, calm and safe environment. It felt blissful to be looked after by two such empathetic and experienced practitioners who addressed everyone’s needs individually and made us all feel truly nurtured. It was an absolute tonic for both body and mind in a totally beautiful place. I loved it”
