Our facilities

We offer quiet, comfortable rooms in a large, traditional 1600s thatched house, with a roaring woodburner and a beautiful courtyard and walled garden. You can be as solitary or as sociable as you choose. And as a working writer, I am happy to offer constructive criticism on your work. The village pub is just 50 yards from the front door and there are many delightful walks all around. You can take our resident labrador, Daisy out too.

But not everyone who visits Retreats for You is here to write. Some paint, read, tackle a work project, or simply relax and recuperate.

Retreats For You

Daisy dog, finds the most ridiculous positions to sleep in. How can that even be comfortable? She is snoring away like a good ‘un, and just now she was running in her sleep :-) She’s sparko! I, on the other hand, and wide-awake. And it’s bedtime. Even a spell in the new hot tub in the back garden earlier did not wear me out :-) perhaps I should lay in that position and see what happens :-)
