Metabolic Reset Programme

The Combe Grove Estate Team are delighted to announce that as of June 2022 we will be offering a Metabolic Reset Programme for clients with prediabetes.

Professionally designed to provide knowledge, skills, and support to empower prediabetic clients to make sustainable lifestyle choices to delay or prevent the onset of diabetes. This carefully constructed one year programme includes a one week stay on The Combe Grove Estate and 51 weeks of structured online support. 

Supported by Dr Campbell Murdoch, GP with a special interest in metabolic health and Type 2 diabetes.

The Programme will include:

* Three weeks of interactive online pre-stay preparation.

* A 6 night stay at The Combe Grove Estate.

* 48 weeks of online support, provided by the Combe Grove Team, to reinforce sustained lifestyle change.

Many people are being advised by their Doctor that they are prediabetic. Prediabetes indicates a higher than normal blood sugar level and a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Given the serious health implications of diabetes, anyone who is advised that they are prediabetic is encouraged to make lifestyle changes to reduce these risks and thus increase their chances of enjoying a longer and more enjoyable life.

Based on clinically reviewed scientific evidence, the Programme is professionally designed around a one week stay held within our beautiful, wooded Estate. This allows clients to retreat from everyday life and to focus on developing an understanding of the five roots of metabolic health, whilst enjoying activities that promote health and wellbeing. 

What’s included in the Metabolic Reset Programme?


The Programme will commence three weeks before the date of your stay. A welcome webinar will introduce you to members of our Team, start you on your journey to changes in your lifestyle and point you to the exclusive resources available online.

One-week Stay

At Combe Grove, we believe there are five key roots to achieving lasting good health. These roots are Nutrition, Movement, Sleep, Mindset and Environment. Carefully designed by Nutritionists and experts, in the fields of mindfulness, exercise and sleep, the one week Stay will give you the opportunity to identify the areas that need improvement within your own five roots. It will develop your understanding of your own motivations and the constructive mindset for achieving and sustaining healthy habits to last a lifetime.

The stay includes all nourishing food, full access to the Wellness Facilities, and a regularly updated timetable of mindful and educational activities in support of your health and wellbeing. 


For the 48 weeks after your Stay, you will receive access to regular articles and videos covering metabolic health. Our online Ask the Expert service will enable you to share experiences and gain advice from our experts.

Metabolic Reset Programme Food

Consistently making helpful choices around what to eat and drink can directly reduce blood sugar. To achieve this, the Combe Grove Food Ethos, developed by our team of in-house nutrition experts, recommend a focus on real, minimally processed food that is low in carbohydrate.

During your stay, our Kitchen team will prepare meals in accordance with these guidelines with many of the ingredients being sourced from our own Kitchen Garden. The programme will also introduce you to the health benefits of time-restricted eating. To enhance your understanding, our team of nutrition experts will offer workshops that look at the science of how we metabolise food and practical demonstrations of healthy meals you can prepare at home.

Combe Grove Facilities

Our gym, swimming pools and exercise studios, as well as walks in the 70 acre Estate grounds and surrounding area, provide lots of opportunities for you to gently increase your movement. Our team of fitness and exercise experts will help you to find forms of movement that you enjoy and which you can carry on when you return home.
