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.
