Our stunning new venue

We are delighted to confirm Middleham House, set in the delightful Yorkshire Dales town of Middleham, as our latest venue to our collection of retreat locations and we will run our first one there on 6th September for 3 nights. We are very particular about our locations and there is a list of criteria they must fill. Middleham House goes above and beyond all of our expectations so we are sure our writers will have an exceptional time on these retreats.

The Middleham House retreats are that little bit more expensive, so what does it have to offer? Private and comfortable writing space is vital and the spacious rooms with stunning views over the church and the grounds offer just that in the isolation of your own space. Writers, though, don’t usually want to spend all of their time on their own, so Middleham House offers two stunning, relaxing lounge areas, with big comfortable seats and beautiful outlooks, along with a fully-equipped library for just that right kind of setting, perfect for writing. The four-poster bed is a replica of a Japanese original that resides in a museum in London. The grounds are ample with an orchard, open lawns, with a shaded avenue that leads around the edge of the gardens.

But the real icing on the cake? Middleham House is a rambling, rangy listed building that is bursting with character. With it’s plate-glass venetian windows and Greek Doric columns, it’s beautiful sashes, and its feature rooms, the whole place is bursting with its own stories to tell.

As we come out of restrictions, we can now re-introduce our relaxation Dharma yoga sessions, and run evening social and reading sessions for those who want to take part and, of course, every retreat comes with our second-to-none individual mentoring sessions.

Bookings are now open.
