“Time is our biggest enemy and yet our greatest pleasure”

“Do you find yourself wondering if there was somewhere you could go to inspire you  or just give you the time and space to explore your Writer Within? Somewhere that isn’t a course or series of workshops but a cosy, quiet place, surrounded by nature, where you can just focus on you and your writing” 

At our Writers Retreat we are equally aware of the many restraints and commitments of daily life and how hard it can be to find that elusive time to just think and commit those thoughts to paper or a keyboard.

Whether you just need the time to formulate that idea, already writing your book or dissertation or ready to embark on a new project...

we have a solution that we think you will love. ❤️


We focus on you so you can focus on your Writing

The Writers Retreat is designed to give you the free time to begin your own journal by taking away all of the tasks that can get in the way. We are able to do this because we own and run two top rated Guesthouse/B&Bs in Betws-y-Coed, Snowdonia and are adept at looking after hundreds of guests per year.

The next retreats are the 24th-27th February 2020, 9th-13th March 2020 and March 30th-April 2nd 2020 and costs £480 per person. Autumn is still a fading memory and the festive activities of Christmas have yet to be started. A perfect time for yourself and your writing.

The week includes your accommodation, a full cooked or lighter breakfast (allergies and dietary preferences are catered for), lunch at a nearby cafe and an evening meal at one of the village restaurants or pubs, where you will have time to socialise with other participants on the retreat. 

You will be able to take part in workshops run by professionals in creative writing to help start your writing journey or nudge you further with the story you have already started. 

At any stage you are free to wonder off, be inspired by your surroundings, clear your head or go for a walk (strenuous or not) which in itself may help you focus or break that writers block. 

All our rooms include a large comfortable bed with a private en-suite, tea and coffee facilities, biscuits, a TV and a desk. You don't have to "unplug" during your stay with us as you will have access to free WiFi.
