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 one or two of the resident labradors 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

Hey all - a useful bit of info for independents. And a Xmas retreat!

So apparently Amazon are more n more replacing ‘also bought’ with paid-for ads. Joanna Penn is doing another webinar thus Thurs ; if you register for free, they send you the link to watch afterwards at your convenience.

Hope you’re well all.

Busy couple of weeks coming up - Retreat West with us next week, then I have the knee Op coming up - little keyhole thing- but hopefully it means some time sitting down myself and able to write.
Julie Cohen’s amazing retreat is on 26 November and it will be lovely to see her and gang!

Christmas tree will be up by then, roaring fire going and mince pies and mould wine o’clock.

Why not come and enjoy it all 3–7 December? I have two places left that week if you want to get away and have a nice pre-Christmas relaxing break.

Also if you want to finish your #NaNoWriMo novel too, four days full board in peace and Devon cosiness awaits. Do tag a pal who might come?

Doggy therapy awaits from Daisy n Gracie, Who look very pleased with themselves in the warm post-walk towel jackets!

Best wishes
