Our Vitality Chefs

Being a retreat chef is a specialist role in cooking, so we make sure our chefs experience our training programme to prepare them to be the best vitality chefs they can be on our bespoke retreats. Meet our fabulous retreat chefs here.

Nafia Harding

With a flare for the colourful, Nafias culinary creations are as beautiful as they are absolutely delicious! Nutritionally balanced, plant-based and from the heart you will leave each meal feeling satisfied in every way.

Claire-Louise Nobbs

Claire’s food is inspired by her teachers and from her travels around the world. She loves to incorporate as many seasonal vegetables and fruits as possible into her menu and use lots of spices. She also loves the creativity that is possible with plant-based cooking and enjoys introducing people to new ingredients so that people may discover new healthy foods for themselves and be inspired to try new recipes at home.

Charlotte Hopson

Charlotte’s motivation is to share her passion for seasonal, plant-based ingredients and encourages guests to use their time on retreat to reconnect with their relationship to food. As a Pilates, Yoga teacher and Chef she believes that with a balanced approach to exercise, eating well, and making more mindful choices about how and what we consume, we can live a more nurturing, self-supporting and planet-friendly lifestyle.
