Since throwing open our Devon farmhouse doors in 2010 to launch our much heralded wellness retreat, we have won multiple awards. Our health retreat is a far cry from juice fast retreats, detox spas and weight loss boot camps. The aim of our 5 day award winning programme is to educate on the inherent value of prioritising your physical health and mental health in equal measure.
At Yeotown, we are inspired by shedding the weight of the being versus focusing solely on losing the weight of the body. Using a balanced mix of inspirational, challenging and fun activities with expert yet approachable session leaders, we will teach you how to take control of your own health. We believe fitness and eating is a lifelong journey of adapting exercise and eating habits to the events life throw at us. We believe that ultimately you must decide for yourself which foods and lifestyle habits are best for you.
Our flagship Yeotown Wellness Retreat is based in North Devon, one of the most picturesque, unspoilt areas of the UK. We are just 15 minutes from the wild, breath-taking Atlantic ocean, and the dramatic hills and valleys of Exmoor National Park.

Yeotown Madeira is a new unique European wellness retreat space that utilizes a proven Mind + Body formula. We are Madeira’s first dedicated health retreat, and currently the only programme and set-up of its kind on both the island itself and mainland Portugal. Offering a copy-paste of the award winning programme curated over the last 13 years by our sister site in North Devon, England, we aim to help you achieve the levels of health, energy, joy and wellbeing you’ve been searching for.
Madeira is truly one of the most picturesque islands of the world. Our guests return time and again to enjoy breath-taking views of the Atlantic ocean, and explore world renown hikes through mountains, forests, valleys alongside rejuvenating mind and body with a swim under one of the island’s many cascading waterfalls, and natural pools.
Our boho-chic certified agriculture retreat hotel is the perfect backdrop for your next healthy holiday. Our 6 day/5 night programme runs all year round, every week from Monday to Saturday. We use our proven formula to help you achieve a high level of wellbeing by offering inspiring ways to take control of your mind and body; the added bonus of any weight loss is a side effect of our energising programme.
Yeotown London offers up California inspired healthy, wholesome, colourful dishes with a spoonful of British sensibility. Although the majority of our offering is plant based, this is not ‘vegan junk food’ so to speak. It is nourishing, nutrient dense food for complete wellbeing. Our focus is on optimising energy and health through the food we eat. Alongside our plant-centric menu free from refined sugars, dairy, meat and gluten, our menus offer a couple of sustainable fish and free range egg options.
Located in London’s first “Wellbeing Hotel”, we currently have two sites in London serving up Yeotown’s much heralded healthy, delicious dishes found on our weekly Yeotox retreats in both Devon and Madeira. Our 1-2 Queen’s Gardens W2 location is a lovely Scandinavian designed restaurant and bar with private dining room and lounge. Our welcoming Sussex Gardens W2 eatery offers a seasonal, large outdoor terrace alongside a beautiful workshop/library space available for events, workshops and talks.

Meals are often carefully curated with locally sourced, healthy ingredients, emphasising a balanced and nourishing diet. You’ll have ample time to relax and unwind, whether it’s through spa treatments, downtime in nature, or just reading a book. Evenings often end with group discussions or reflection sessions, allowing you to connect with fellow participants and share insights from your day. The aim is to leave you feeling refreshed, inspired, and equipped with valuable tools to carry into your daily life.
Creating a Healthy & Balanced Gut with Lucinda Miller
Wednesday 4th October – Sunday 8th October 2023
We are excited to once again be teaming up with the incredible Lucinda Miller to bring you this unique and exciting retreat focused on creating a healthy and balanced gut at our Devon location.
Lucinda Miller is the clinical lead of NatureDoc and runs a team of UK-wide nutritional therapists specialising in gut health. She has been practicing as a Naturopath for over 20 years, qualified in Functional Medicine and is the author of two bestselling family cookbooks – making her the perfect person to host this special 5-day collaboration retreat on the importance of gut health
Lucinda specialises in interpreting stool tests to gain a better understanding of the root causes of a person’s chronic gut issues. The stool tests she runs give an overview of how to optimise gut function and overall physical and mental health through individualised diet changes and supplements. Throughout the retreat, you will be guided on ways to achieve optimal gut health through diet, lifestyle and food supplements.
In addition to this, as an optional add-on to your retreat, Lucinda can organise a state-of-the-art cutting-edge Invivo GI Ecologix stool test to be posted to your home, which analyses gut function and microbiome health. This costs £339 which you pay the lab directly, and Lucinda will give full test interpretation and provide a tailor-made health plan for you during the retreat. This needs to be organised at least 6 weeks prior to the retreat, to include enough turnaround time. Please email Lucinda on firstname.lastname@example.org to organise this.
