Description

From Friday night 31st of July to Sunday 2nd of August lunchtime, Amanda Viviers is running a retreat for those who need space to write, reflect and reset. There will be moments of great connection with Dinner, lunch and breakfast with fellow writers and then moments of silence as we write together. The places on these retreats always book out fast, so don’t delay.

Here is feedback from one attendee;

Klara Donovan- Blogger and writing her first novel.

“I just wanted to thank you with all my heart for arranging that retreat last week. It was so magical, and wonderful, and inspiring, and uplifting. All the good things! You were right, it was a great group of ladies that came and I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to connect with each of them, and you too!”

All meals for residential guests are provided in the Guesthouse Dining Room. The meals offered are simple and home-cooked, visitors receive the same as the monks. They are self-serve in style and are offered in one sitting at the same time as the monks. Lunch is the main meal of the day (three courses) with supper being a lighter meal in the evening.

Please let Amanda know if you have any food ALLERGIES, unfortunately, food preferences will be hard to cater for, but you are able to bring your own food if you are needing a very specific diet. Every meal includes vegetables, vegetarian options and salads.

There are eight twin-share rooms with en-suites and six single rooms and one twin room with shared facilities. Every retreater will get a room by themselves. First in- best dressed, will get the rooms with their own en suite.

All linen and towels are provided.
