Need to get away from it all?

Your own room

(Unless you want to share with a friend/partner – supplement applies).

No workshops or classes

Just days on end of blissful writing.

All food included (and some wine!)

No cooking, no cleaning. I look after you so that you can focus on writing.


Open to all writers

Published, unpublished, fiction, non-fiction, poets, academics, students, entrepreneurs – anyone who needs space to think and work is welcome.

Sometimes it’s hard to focus. You’re constantly juggling work, family obligations, distractions, your endless to-do list. 


You need to escape.


You need a place with a room of your own, where the practical stuff like food is taken care of so your time is entirely your own.


Write, read, go on long walks, take baths, chat to other writers, dream, think, play. It’s up to you…



Writing retreats at two venues, both in Devon. Which one suits you?

Hideaway Dates

Currently on hiatus due to family circumstances. I’ll post new dates as soon as possible.

Dates go up in batches every few months, so pop your details in the big turquoise signup box below to hear about new dates. They do sell out quickly and writers who have been before get priority booking. If you want to be added to a waiting list for a sold-out date, just let me know.
