The February Retreat (postponed)


Friday 3rd – Sunday 5th February 2023

In February 2020, we held our first Retreat. We were all so delighted that it went so well, that we are going to do it annually!

You will be warmly welcomed, given wonderful food, fabulous workshops, and enjoy meeting fellow guests and tutors.

What to expect:

Arrive at 9:30am on Friday* to book in and enjoy a coffee before heading off to your first workshop at 10am.
Or if you prefer, find a cosy corner to read a book, or enjoy a stroll.

We will meet for a two-course lunch, before completing our afternoon workshops, which usually finish around 5:00 or 5:30pm.
A delicious three-course dinner (you can opt for fewer courses!) will be served around 7:30, giving you plenty of time to enjoy a drink by the fire after your afternoon workshop.

On Saturday, workshops usually run 10am – 1:00pm, and following a two-course lunch, start again from around 2.00-5:00pm.
Following the three-course supper on Saturday, you can once again relax in the sitting room or bar with drinks, books or games… or sneak off for an early night!

Sunday sees more workshops running in the morning, finishing in time for lunch, with departure at 3:30pm.

For the list of workshops (you can choose as many or as few as you wish), please visit the Workshops page. You can book your preferred residential workshops by clicking the link on that page, where you will be able to find the non-residential workshops when they are released.

You are very welcome to book a longer stay, leading up to, or either side of, the Retreat… simply call the hotel, who will be able to help you. Please remember, you can book with them once they have received my confirmation of your workshops deposit, and then you receive the Retreat Discount!

Once you have browsed the schedule of workshops, it is time to book your preferred room!
