Writer's retreats

If you are a writer seeking time and space to create your masterpiece, this is the ideal place. Retreat to the hills and work in peace.

If you are less experienced but seeking to hone your skills, one to one or small group help is available.

Walk in the morning to charge up your energy. Return to the peace and quiet of the cottage to turn your thoughts into words. Work to your own rules or try new forms with flexible exercises - as much or as little as you like. Discuss your work and receive friendly, informed suggestions for its improvement. Meditate on your new skills in the quiet dusk of the countryside, and in the morning wake refreshed and ready to write more.

Writer's retreats (extra to the agency booking of the accommodation) can be pre-booked and paid for via PayPal. To discuss your requirements and fees, mail sue at dawbank. co. uk.

And the beasties...

We're sad to say that Sammy, our lovable philosopher and clown of a sheepdog, passed away in the autumn of 2013. We still have Ruby the Fell pony, Grace the cat (don't leave the window open or she will join you because she once lived in the cottage!) and our new dog, Micky Wippitt, who is a Jack Russell on stilts.
