*Having done a number of detoxes before, all of which took place in sunnier, more detox friendly Thailand, myself and my cousin had decided that we wanted to do another cleanse, but didn’t want to haul ourselves half way around the world for the experience. So we scoured the internet looking for the equivalent fast in the UK and eventually to my delight we came across StillpointDetox. What struck us most were the pictures of the big country house, the idyllic setting and the price!!!! So we decided to book.

Before arriving we were a little reticent about fasting in the UK as we were so used to fasting in a tranquil beach environment in Thailand. But on arrival, after meeting Dianne and seeing the house, and the surroundings, any anxieties we had vanished immediately. This is the perfect place to starve your body while feeding your soul.

The house is a big rambling gorgeous country manor, set on 2 acres with gardens that explode with beautiful flower displays that assault the senses. Dianne is a living embodiment of the nutritional philosophy she espouses; all glowy cheeks and a great big “I’ll look after you” smile. And look after us she did, by listening to our woes and always offering words of encouragement at our weakest moments.

As faithful devotees of detoxing through fasting we would highly recommend this, it can be tough at times but you feel amazing when you complete the fast, lighter, clearer, and happier...... Detox in Devon with Dianne, your body and your life will thank you for it. Thanks Dianne for sharing this journey with us. We’ll be back…
