We provide two quiet spaces for writers who want to get away to concentrate on their writing. We have found that many have reached deadlines before they expected to and started on something else!

There are two retreat spaces: one is a tower flat with small kitchen, shower room, sitting room and bedroom. The other is a summer house in the garden which is big enough to stay in and has sleeping, cooking and washing facilities.

We provide food for the writer to make breakfast and lunch, and a cooked meal in the evening which can be eaten on their own or with the family.

There are lovely country walks straight from the house and a beautiful garden to sit in.

Here is a link to a blog of someone who experienced a writers’ retreat here:-
