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

Writers!

Which resonates most with you about how to write when u dont feel like it.

This message in this video?

Or the other view in one of the comments in the thread (copied below).

Interesting polarised views. Yours is mostly.... which?

X
OR THIS-
“Write regularly/Butt in seat? That’s so MALE ENERGY. DON’T do it that way, So limited. Instead.... Meditate. Reach to your Higher Self. Write from Inspiration. (Not organization.) The NEW Age is based on inspiration. Force and organization is the old way. If you are "not in the mood" to write, your writing will be uninspired.”

Which do u agree with?

Retreats For You

SEMI-SELF-CATERING WRITING RETREAT
4,5,6th December
interested in a semi self catering retreat? Where you and at least 4 other writers would have the place to yourself And I arrange for you to have supper in the pub opposite – at a special rate. You sort out your own lunch, Full use of the kitchen et cetera. (Also, when we do fully catered retreats, breakfast is self-service anyway and I can make sure there are eggs, bread and milk available, plus there is a cereals cupboard with lovely local jams and butter.)

I would however need to get preferably five other people to be there with you. If you’re interested do you know a friend who could come?

You would still have almost everything you normally have in terms of a cosy room and the facilities – good broadband, lovely walks, quaint village shop opposite, Studio has a big TV and mini gym, nice garden.

I haven’t run one of these yet but a couple of people have been asking and one writer definitely wants this weekend.

OR:
Just Write fully catered retreat is available 25th January, for four nights,

OR:
Come with a small group and hire the whole house, fully self catered as a holiday let.


Cost wise,

the regular ‘just write’ retreats are currently from £105 per night per person including all food, hot drinks and red or white at supper.

To hire the whole house as a holiday let is from £250 per night, out of interest. No food included.

However with semi self catering, Incl some breakfast supplies, but you do your own lunch, and then you go over to the pub in the evening for two courses and a glass of something. This would work out at £76 per person per night, but I would need a minimum of five people booked to do that. It would also need to tie in with a holiday let arrangements, which means coming On a Friday Saturday and Sunday (3 nights), or Monday through to Friday (four nights).

If you’re interested in the fourth, fifth and sixth of December, please let me know as soon as possible! One booked, possibly a second interested, which leaves three or four spaces maximum. Ensuite bedroom available currently (optional extra)
