Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes. We require a 20% deposit of the cost of the stay. No bookings will be confirmed without the 20% deposit. The deposit confirms your place on your NuBeginnings programme and is non refundable. We are happy to move the deposit to another week if your plans change.
When do I pay the full balance for my stay?
The full balance must be paid and cleared 14 days prior to the commencement of the booked stay. Failure to do so will result in refusal onto the NuBeginnings programme.
What happens if I need to change the date of my booking?
If possible, NuBeginnings will transfer the booking to a mutually acceptable alternative date. This must be within 12 months of the original booking date.
Can I extend my stay at NuBeginnings if I wish to stay on?
As long as we have availability, then yes, we can extend your stay and programme to suit. Payment for the extension must be paid upon us reserving the extra week(s).
What if I need to cancel my booking?
If, for any reason, you have to cancel an agreed booking that you have paid for in full, this must be notified to NuBeginnings in writing, and cancellation fees will apply as set out below. Notice Given: Less than 14 days – Cancellation Fee: 100% Notice Given: 14 days – 3 months – Cancellation Fee: 50% Notice Given: More than 3 months – Cancellation Fee: 25% We will do whatever we can to rebook you on another course and avoid cancellation fees.
NuBeginnings is expensive – is it worth it?
YES!! NuBeginnings offers great value for money as we are offering an end to your struggle with your relationship with food. If you take part in the programme and give it 100% then, with our support when you return home, you will succeed. We only run the programme with small groups, you have lovely accommodation and personal one to one attention and support. Nowhere else offers such a comprehensive programme with a completely toxin free environment.
Should I bring multivitamins?
The NuBeginnings programme has been designed to cover all of your nutritional needs so supplements are not necessary. However we do recommend that you continue with any supplements/programme that your medical/holistic advisors have given you.
What if I have ‘special’ dietary needs?
Please let us know of any special dietary needs at the time of making your reservation.
How much weight will I lose in a week at NuBeginnings?
This is the question we are asked most often and it is the most difficult to answer. Your weight loss depends on your current weight, the effort you make whilst with us and your current diet. Some guests lose up to 14lbs in a week.
I have never been hiking before – will I enjoy it?
The hiking trails we use at NuBeginnings are beautiful. All our guests enjoy the local countryside and as long as you like the fresh air and walking then you will thoroughly enjoy your time with us. We have a team of highly skilled and enthusiastic local guides who help make each hike fun.
I never exercise at all – is NuBeginnings the right place for me?
We structure our programmes around our guests to ensure that the programme is ideally suited to you. If you really have never done any exercise before then we might suggest a week where the group fitness levels suit you. You will never be forced to do anything that is uncomfortable for you. Your safety and wellbeing is our utmost concern.
Is NuBeginnings a medical facility?
No – NuBeginnings does not have nursing or medical staff. We are a holistic practice where the programme is centred around each guest and giving you the skills and knowledge to lead a healthy life.
