About Lauretta & Sharon (Gavin & Gavin)

Lauretta and Sharon are sisters with a passion for healthy plant based food without being hippy dippy tree huggers.

Sharon was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease just before her son was born over 5 years ago. She was covered from head to toe in a chronic rash and at times was wheel chair bound. On a concoction of very toxic drugs and steroids Sharon decided she needed to find another way to get her health back.

After lots of research and a lot of trial and error Sharon found a high raw vegan diet with lots of fruits and vegetables made a massive difference to her health. She now has no rash is nearly off all drugs and back running. Her sister Lauretta decided to go along for the ride and support her. After vegan cooking courses, lots of juice detoxes they both feel better than ever and are passionate about others finding their mojo too.

Lauretta and Sharon are also an established comedy double act and write and perform and act.

Reviews

I was a bit apprehensive when I went to the Detox Barn, after all, I had never been on a digital detox in my life and my idea of healthy living is having a day without crisps. How was I going to get on with the hosts Sharon and Lauretta both self-proclaimed vegan, whole food enthusiasts? Would I feel awkward, would they be way too 'out there' for me? I needn't have worried; they were the two most down to earth people I have ever met. They made me feel instantly at ease.

The room I had was lovely and clean and warm, the bed was comfy. The food was amazing; I never knew healthy could taste so good. I was also fascinated to learn how sharon had reversed an autoimmune disease, talking with her has really opened my eyes to a new way of eating not just for health but for enjoyment. The sisters are great adverts for veganism, they both looked vibrant and full of health.

I highly recommend the Detox Barn, for the food, the sisters who were so accommodating funny and inspiring, the chance to take stock before heading back into the real world. I hope to make it a yearly event.

I absolutely love this place - so easy to get to from London but always feels like you're properly away from it all. One of the best things is how laid back everything is - there's never any pressure to join a walk or a yoga class if you don't fancy it. In fact the whole place is pretty big with lots of cozy nooks and crannies which means you can easily hide yourself away somewhere with a book if you fancy being on your own, but equally, when you're feeling sociable there's loads of opportunity to join others for inspiring chats and a laugh. Always really lovely healthy, tasty food and I spent most of my time feeling inspired, relaxed or laughing... or usually all three! The perfect place to rest, recharge and feel good about life!

Perfect antidote when experiencing a bit of life burn out. Absolute highlights for me were the best night's sleep I'd had in months, country walks and the simple but blissful pleasure of sitting in front of a log fire. The Smoothies were so delicious and filling and have got me started on my weight loss!

Pippa Sarll

Spent last weekend at The Detox Barn and thoroughly recommend it. This was the perfect place to kick start my diet. The smoothies, juices and meals prepared by Lauretta were delicious. They are so knowledgeable about healthy living I really enjoyed the many chats we all had - they don't preach, they are simply so passionate about this subject. The cottage has a real home from home feel, not some soul less boutique hotel. I left feeling excited about changing my life for the better. Inspirational thank you.

Tonya French

Warm and funny hosts and seriously good juices. Great place to start a gentle detox. I learnt a lot about food prep to practise at home. Definitely the kickstart I needed! Highly recommended.

Karen Keeman

Victoria Brown

I've learnt how to make some lovely juices & smoothies, eaten some delicious vegan food (who knew!) and feel super chilled and motivated to continue on my path to a healthier lifestyle after this weekends visit to The Detox Barn. The hosts are warm & approachable, the garden vast & tranquil. I want to go back!!

I would like to thank Sharon and Lauretta for their hard work and attention to detail in order to provide a relaxing and friendly, inspiring and therapeutic environment throughout the weekend.

Set in a tranquil Suffolk village, I went to the Detox Barn not really knowing what to expect (my wife booked the weekend for me); but on leaving, I can truly say I would struggle to remember when I last felt more relaxed. The weather was perfect and combined with the rural background to add further to a feeling of sanctuary. The group of people I met on the retreat were a lovely bunch. There was a lot of laughter and mutual support.

Activities were offered, with additional treatments also available, but with no pressure to take part at any time. I can recommend the Ayurvedic massage. The days were interspersed with regular, freshly whizzed juices, smoothies & delicious Vegan meals. I would unhesitatingly recommend the whole experience. Thanks again Sharon and Lauretta!
