    "Highest standard of quality and care at Split Farthing Hall! Dynamic yoga, progressive program delivered to fit the group. Was so invigorated and felt cleansed throughout with delicious raw food dishes served so elegantly." website, edited

  • Review by Ann Wilson

    "What a beautiful location and an equally tastefully appointed house. Thank you for sharing this with us. The hospitality and attention to detail in all respects was second to none. Food was presented thoughtfully and pleasing to the eye in a very restful dining room. However some meals were more appealing than others and I appreciate that this was an introduction to a style of eating raw food, not as a total diet. Claire was a dedicated exponent of her style of yoga which certainly broadened my experiences. She was energetically, enthusiastically and generously sharing this with us. I enjoyed a new experience on this retreat with so many positive aspects, amongst which was the delightful group we shared it with. Thank you again for my experience that left me with very positive thoughts and I wish you continued success at Split Farthing Hall." website, edited

  • Review by A traveler from Manchester, United Kingdom

    "The retreat was in a lovely setting in a property overlooking the Yorkshire plains. My main reason was yoga and detox, and I wasn't particularly bothered about the method for the detox (raw food). However, the food was quite interesting and tasty. I personally wouldn't go on this kind of diet in any different setting than this one i.e. short term and being made for me. I had a first taste of Kundalini yoga and there were aspects I enjoyed more than others. Overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a short break away. I did feel that the extra treatments were quite costly and considerably more expensive than when used elsewhere." website, edited

    "I came with an open mind about the weekend and what I would get out of it. And I have found it to be a most valuable time. I was in a situation where I was stuck in my life, going round and round in my thoughts not able to find a solution. This weekend has helped me to look really deeply at myself and what I want out of life and I leave with some steps forward to follow and feeling lighter in myself."
