10 Reasons why you should run a writing retreat

Have you ever thought about running a writing retreat? Retreats are great opportunity to do something different and offer an experience that your writers will love.

Eco-camping in Devon; a weekend at an eco-campsite

Eco-camping in Devon; a weekend at an eco-campsite

A weekend at an eco-camping retreat This summer I went to Tiverton for a weekend of eco-camping in Devon at Coombe Farm.

Creating a welcome pack; Why I love to shop locally on retreat

Follow my blog with Bloglovin As a retreat host in Spain, I provide a welcome pack for my guests. In reality, it’s not just a welcome pack. It’s a lovingly thought-out and carefully planned display of fresh and scrumptious goodies waiting to be tucked into.
