COVID-19: Please check here for the latest covid updates. We will keep you updated as developments continue, so please check back regularly and feel free to email us for the latest information about changes to the schedule.
Have you got a group of 5–7 writers who want to get away together? Our cottage is now available as a holiday let/self-catering – contact Debbie for details. Works out at from £50 per night each, cereals and toast and jam included, and I have a special rate at the Gastro pub opposite, where you could take lunches and suppers instead of cooking. Find more info here.
We run full board, fully catered retreats for writers, roughly monthly, where you can tuck yourself away in your own cosy room and just write, and we look after you. Many dates below are workshops - with tutors - on different aspects of writing. Usually the length is four nights, and usually it is Monday to Friday.
We are still playing catch up with the postponed dates following lockdown, plus we are working around our holiday let calendar, therefore there are fewer dates than usual currently available. This may revert to normal in the future but for now all of the upcoming retreats are listed below.
Please peruse the detailed information under each event prior to contacting us as much of what you need will likely be found there. We request a £125 deposit when you book your place, to secure it, with the balance due the month before the event. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, by emailing in the first instance.
Please feel free to sign up for our newsletter as that’s how our regulars are first given updates. Also do follow our social media @retreatsforyou.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Debbie and Team
PS most of the upcoming events at time of writing are full or nearly full and the next Just Write retreat availability may not be until February 2022. But it’s always worth asking, and I may be able to run a retreat for you and your friends if you can provide a minimum of five people; enquire about special rates for tutors.
