Lose weight down at the farm

Forget yo-yo dieting and gym memberships the way to get trim is a trip to a fitness resort.

That's according to FitFarms five star fitness and weight-loss retreats that offer female only camps in the Peak District and Exmoor .

A one week retreat costs £995 for a twin room with nutritional meals, massages and exercise classes. It sounds dear but if it gets the pounds off, it could be real value for money.
