This retreat is designed to let you focus on YOU, whilst enjoying an Alcohol-Free vacation with like-minded women
The Reset Retreat will take place at Prince Hall – a beautiful Georgian manor house in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, and we will take over the whole property for the duration of the retreat, with access to its gardens, sauna, hot-tub, woodland meditation area and stunning moorland views. All rooms are en-suite and the whole property is super-comfortable, with squishy sofas and cushions aplenty.
You may arrive feeling stressed and harried, but you can not help but relax and unwind here, and you will leave feeling truly peaceful.
Delicious Healthy Food
You are what you eat. All meals will be prepared by Millie Morrison, a wonderful young plant-based chef with a Cordon Bleu training and experience in high end London kitchens. She is as passionate about health as she is about food, and she will serve us with delicious plant-based meals throughout the retreat. She will also be doing a demonstration in Prince Hall’s fabulous kitchen, so that you can go home with the ability to reproduce some of her culinary masterpieces.
Millie will happily accommodate any dietary requirements (we will discuss this with you when you book.) Your body will thank you for nourishing it properly!
Coaching around Alcohol
The coaching on alcohol will be the ‘main event’ of this retreat, with the aim of putting alcohol firmly and permanently behind us as well as on creating a life that you don’t want to escape from.
The coaching will be based on This Naked Mind’s successful method, and each day there will be three to four hours of group coaching around alcohol and self-compassion. This will be highly interactive and may involve working in pairs as well as with the whole group.
During the course of the retreat, each delegate will also receive two hours of one-on-one coaching around alcohol.
Your coaches will be Tabbin Almond and Anna Donaghey. Tabbin is a Certified Senior Coach with This Naked Mind and a Certified Gray Area Drinking Coach, and Anna is a Certified Coach with This Naked Mind. Both Tabbin and Anna struggled with alcohol themselves and went through programmes with This Naked Mind to become alcohol free, before undertaking the training to become certified coaches. They know each other well, having worked together for a decade in their previous lives in advertising. They both held senior positions and have first hand experience of the shame and anxiety that accompanies trying to hide the reality of having a problem with alcohol. Crucially, they can also both vouch for the wonders of a life lived alcohol-free!
Daily Exploration of Self-Care Practices
Self-care means looking after ourselves, physically, mentally and emotionally. And that can be difficult with all the stress of day-to-day life.
Each day during the retreat, you will experience a different aspect of self-care, led by an expert in the field. These sessions will help you discover the benefits of the practice, show you how to do it, and give you practical tips for how to incorporate the practice into your daily life.
You will be inspired by experts in:
- Nature - Walking on Dartmoor, taking in Bronze Age monuments
- Nutrition – demonstration from our chef
- Creative writing and journalling.
What people have said about The Reset Retreat
“Really this is just a very heartfelt thank you for a totally transformational week. If I’m totally honest, when I arrived at Prince Hall I had no real faith that anything would change, but the thought of a week away from everyone and everything was appealing, and if nothing else I could read and walk to my heart's content. I was so so wrong. Right from the start, I felt like I was with people who I could trust and talk to and listen to, and who just ‘got me’. The more the week went the more I felt my tough ‘I'm OK’ shell crack and allow people in, and every single person there at some point spoke truths that I had not or would not have absorbed in the past. Amazing. The fact that I left feeling utterly transformed after that sceptical start says so much about the journey I took during those 6 days. And I can’t remember the last time I properly belly laughed so much!! ”
"I have been treading this on/off sobriety path for decades and so wish I had met the two of you - with your humanity, generosity of spirit and wisdom - sooner. But I know deep down that regret is a total waste of time and energy. I haven’t got close to feeling as I do now with willpower/AA/white knuckling - something has changed, something I can’t put my finger on. There has been a step change in my thinking. And I am so so grateful to you, and to those six wonderful ladies that I shared the journey with. You both have a real gift to listen with empathy, to connect and to challenge thinking without being prescriptive. And you gave us all the gift of sharing your own stories with such honesty."
"It is the best retreat I have been on, and fully met my needs in terms of what I was looking for. A priviledge to be with a small group of like-minded women and two expert coaches"
"Do it!! Prepare to: be honest about yourself; listen to others and learn from their experience; be vulnerable; eat great food; develop strong and unexpected bonds and friendships; change your life by understanding yourself better and leaving with the ability to reframe your beliefs about yourself and the role(s) alcohol has been playing in your life. Also, with this group, prepare to LAUGH, A LOT! (Vultures, all of them :)) ""

Daily Walks with Tabbin
Tabbin will lead a morning walk for anyone who would like to join her. These walks will give you the chance to tune into nature first thing in the morning, to meditate and to practice gratitude.
Dartmoor is a spectacular place, designated one of England's six National Parks. All across Dartmoor you will see granite boulders and granite outcrops (known as 'tors') on top of hills. The rocks on the ground are often used for building walls, as is the case at the now-deserted Teign Head Farm, where this photo was taken. You will see wild ponies, as well as sheep and cattle all across the moor.
Tabbin was brought up on Dartmoor and has a deep love of this wild and beautiful place.
This is designed be a small, intimate and intensive retreat
Testimonials from the inaugural retreat held earlier this year
"Something very special happened this week, thanks to Tabbin, Anna and This Naked Mind.
The seismic shift in my brain is extraordinary and something I thought only happened to others, the unattainable that could never happen to me.
I have always been a strong person but in a 'white knuckle, holding on by the fingernails' way. Now my heart feels free and light. I cannot recall when I last felt this good."
Feb 2023 Retreat Guest
"Thank you so much for the wonderful retreat and all these resources.
I am feeling so much more grounded. I talked to my daughter last evening, she was so pleased.
Having this fantastic group of women to move forward with is a gift beyond measure too."
