Hi all.
Firstly, we were all chuffed to see this new rave review go up online this week – thanks to Gail Aldwin for alerting us. This site gives its take on the top ten writing retreats to go to for serious writers. And guess what? We made it onto the list! They say very complimentary things and call Retreats for You the ‘best for no distractions’!
How lovely!
It’s former guests who have alerted them, and of course the current Facebook reviews – which are currently 31 in total and all five stars – including most since Wendy and I took over this year from lovely Deb. 
Click here to read it all. And if you agree, do feel free to leave a comment there, or on our Facebook page here.

Glad to see the compliments keep flowing in blogs from guests too –

Rosie Dean has written a super description of what it’s really like to come here if you’re a writer too – go here to read hers. What would yours be, if you are a returner? If you’re curious, book a week and see for yourself.
We do mostly Monday to Friday, four nights, at £90 pppn, incl full board and wine at dinner. Own room, shared bathroom and lovely homecooked meals. We’re currently booking right through the Summer at the moment, although August is pretty full. We do have the following still available though:

Memoirs and First Time Writers Week  - Elaine Denning is your tutor for the week, including daily workshops to help get you started and bring out the novelist or autobiography in you. August 28th (bank hol) Mon to Fri. £440
Yoga Week August 14th – is practically full – do let us know if you’d like to grab the last remaining places - £395 including a morning and an evening session of gentle stretch yoga. Plus a healthy menu for the week. Non-writers welcome.

QVC viewers week Aug 21st or October 2nd. Just regular pricing of £90 pppn, ie £360 – come meet like-minded people, walk Daisy and Gracie the Labradors and really relax – everything is done for you, no chores.

Special Deals for last minute – if you’re an academic and need to get your thesis finished pronto, or a novelist with a deadline, come to us in July.
The 3rd is completely full but we have spaces on July 10th, 17th and 31st. Its just regular pricing so email us asap This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to find out more, and if you can book far ahead too or are a returner,  you can either book via our new website or just contact us for info direct.
New website 
Finally, we have a new website! It’s up and running at last. There have been a few gremlins in the system but mostly ironed out now. If you spot one, let us know!
You can check availability and book through the new website now or if you prefer you can still email us with your enquiry.

Chocolate mousse with fresh local raspberries and mint from the garden - a favourite amongst our guests for hot days or for a rich tasty dessert after a light dinner. Dark chocolate whisked with custard for an easy delicious mousse!
By the way, we have some famous authors who come to write at our lovely Retreat. Cally Taylor is one of them.
If you are in the Plymouth area in December, why not go and hear her speak, on a panel about crime writing and how to get published, more details here:
