“ I can’t tell where the four hands are on my body, or even where I end and they begin, as tense muscles turn to fluid as the oil is poured over them. By the end of my stay, my skin and eyes were clear and my mind was rested. I felt wonderful almost immediately; quite calm and relaxed in spite of being straight into work overload and family drama. ”
— Anna Selby, London Evening Standard
“ Once again thanks to you and your charming colleagues. I feel like a saner, lighter and more relaxed person after a few days of your treatments…I have had many massages in my time, all around the world, but yours hit the spot that others just don’t reach. ”
— Catherine Fairweather, Harpers and Queen
“ The two-hour treatments were unlike anything I have ever experienced at any health farm. All my disillusionment and stress was massaged away in a stream of sesame oil. Imagine gallons of warm oil pouring all over you while two therapists massage in the oil in complete synchronisation, from top to toe. As a sensory experience it was unique…especially as I discovered on my return home that I had lost half a stone”.
— Ceril Campbell, Health and Fitness magazine
“ If you really want to give your health and beauty a kick start, treat yourself to an Ayurveda course… I woke up and the world seemed a different place, my body clean and healthy, like a well-oiled machine… I felt like a whole new woman.”
— Jane Alexander, Daily Mail
“ I have had many different types of massages before but have never experienced anything like it. It was blissfully relaxing; I got to the stage when I felt my body was no longer part of me, that I was floating on a bed of clouds. It’s only a month since my treatments and people are still telling me how well I look and asking what I’ve done to myself. ”
— Wendy Haring, British Wheel of Yoga.

“This had to be one of the most enjoyable and heavenly massages I have ever experienced in my entire life. It was followed up with a treatment where gallons of sesame oil ran past my forehead, again, totally heavenly. The entire treatment took about two hours, and then I was retired to bed for half an hour, where I found a cosy hot water bottle”
— Helen Bradshaw, Leeds
“Here in the little house I find complete peace of mind, relaxation, and one to one care. Not only do I receive wonderful food for my body but also for my mind to digest and consider. I may arrive feeling a little frazzled and worn but always leave feeling wonderful, alive, fresh, renewed and ready to face the world again. Be kind to yourself, come and experience this amazing retreat with some of the loveliest people you will ever meet..”
— Joan Lewis, Nottingham
“I came here fifteen years ago, a chronic asthmatic on steroids and other medications, with a bad back and a cluster of anti-immune conditions. That I am now medication free and feel healthy and strong is the least of the transformations achieved by coming here every year to Carol and Danny. Bliss, balance and joy are the gifts of this way of life”
— Anne Sullivan, Dublin
“I feel I have started a journey forward, a healthier and enjoyable life; thanks for showing me the way. Your help, advice and continuous loving support have been really appreciated”

“The treatments were out of this world, so peaceful, so purifying. I feel like an Egyptian Queen. Thank you Danny and Carol - you are so precious – I am grateful for all your help and your very, very useful knowledge”
— Nicole Lesage, Taunton
“If you were to imagine a community composed of ministering angles, perfect parents, top chefs who were also nutritional scientists, physicians (in the Greek sense), nurses who were present when there is pain – you are actually beginning to comprehend what Danny and Carol – Ayurveda UK – are doing. This is Ayurveda expanded and demystified - it is a priceless gift. Do the leaders of the world know what they are missing? Such overwhelming generosity of spirit, open hearts and a well of knowledge that can only be dreamt of! That is Carol and Danny. That is perfect healing. Carol cossetted, cooked, treated and gave gifts of healing. Danny taught and demonstrated. And then they left their home to you. Therein was the safety to heal yourself – to contemplate your own journey in peace. I know it will stay with me as a turning point, and I am grateful beyond measure. Thank you for the love”
— Anne Harris, Dublin (Editor, Sunday Irish Independent)
“Thank you for arranging such a successful weekend for me and my girls. We loved every minute and it was all so relaxing in such superb surroundings. The best part was obviously the massage but the care that Carol puts into the whole experience is so wonderful. We really felt so looked after by someone who really cared and who was so knowledgeable about the Ayurvedic system”
— Gill Graham-Maw, Winchester
“A very beneficial few days for me. It brought me some of the way back to myself, someone who has been obscured for many years under the normal clatter of life. Danny and Carol, your knowledge, your kindness and your skill has left me deep in your debt and Carol, your food has converted me to vegetarianism! Thank you both”.
— Aengus Fanning, Dublin (Editor, Sunday Irish Independent)
“Thank you so much for such a wonderful few days! I am only sorry it has been so short – I could stay here forever. Although, on second thoughts, perhaps it’s better – I think with every treatment I’ve been coming closer to flying “away with the fairies” – it’s been so relaxing, not to mention powerful. Thank you for the cooking, yoga, meditation and care – it’s been paradise. I look forward to seeing you both soon and take care. Thank you for all your kindness”
— Nancy Harris, Dublin
“Extended limbs, springy hair, relaxed state etc, etc, etc – it’s been great – a lot more laughs than I had expected – even during meditation! Wonderful, loving care, delicious food, divine treatments – bliss, bliss, bliss. All my best wishes and everything crossed for you both – you deserve all the success in the world. Keep up the good work”
— Lucy Crewdson, London
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart, soul and being for all your generous healing and facilitation of my transformation. You provide the perfect balance of trust, nurturing and patient witnessing to coax the innermost parts of a being into life and awareness. This is healing and the bearers of well-being at its absolute best! I will certainly be back and I will take with me all my treasures, tools and bits! May all your dreams come true, and surpass them!!”
— Margot Dodd-Wilson, London
