Herrick House believe dietary changes and lifestyle modifications are a great way to help flush out all the toxins that build up in our bodies on a daily basis.

They have brought together knowledge and experience to create menus that will help bring your body back to an alkaline state, cleanse and detoxify your body and mind, with the aim to make you feel more energised, happier and leaving your skin glowing.

All the food is prepared using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. They also have an orchard in the back yard where cherries, figs and plums are in season during summer and they are delicious.

All the meals are vegetarian and vegan as they believe this could be a good break for your digestive system. But also they would like to show you that our bodies can still function by reducing our intake of animal products without feeling deprived and that we can sometimes benefit from it, especially for those who have skin problems and sensitive digestive systems.
