Five reasons to choose Backwell House as a venue for your retreat

This summer I was invited to spend an evening at Backwell House boutique hotel near Bristol with the Bristol Bloggers group.  I was keen to visit this nine-bedroom country house hotel, featured in the magazine Great British and Irish hotels 2017-18, as clients ask me to recommend retreat venues. My first impression, after spotting Backwell […]

When the Saint Comes Dancing In

Normally, on a weekday morning, I’d wake up to the sounds of daily life in the village.  A car revving up and reversing down the street. The neighbours shouting buenos dias as they go off to do their early morning chores. The bread van pulling up on the corner of the plaza.

But, today is different. It’s a public holiday in […]

It’s All About Food that Gives You Real Energy, Not Just a Quick Fix

 

As I walked into Carpe Diem the brightly coloured book jumped out at me. As a book lover, I always find myself drawn to books. As a food lover, I always seem to spot the cookery ones. Carpe Diem is neither a book shop nor a restaurant. It’s a therapy centre on the outskirts […]

Food shopping in Ubrique: The pleasure of taste and colour

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. It adds a wow factor for the guest and provides me with an inadvertent […]

When leather meets the art of Pepe and Isabel

As I sit here writing this I am looking out at the mountain range. A cool breeze is blowing in through the open window. The fig tree below is slowly but surely growing up towards the second floor of the house. I hear the background noise of people on their way home for lunch, […]

So, what’s involved in running a retreat?

A lot of work goes on behind the scenes so that your clients get a fantastic experience. If you are thinking of organising a retreat abroad for the […]

The problem of running a retreat

We have recently returned form the Writing Retreat in South West Spain with book mentor, Karen Williams from Librotas.

We had a wonderful time with our clients. We added a new walk to our morning routine and celebrated a special birthday over dinner, cava and a surprise birthday cake made by the amazing Angelica who’ll I’ll […]

So, what does a Friday afternoon on a retreat look like?

Relaxing? Energising? Productive?

The sky is clear, the pool is inviting and the air is warm.

A client sits in the sunshine. She is working on her book with the help of Karen Williams and Sheryl Andrews. They are planning and mapping out the structure.

Another client takes inspiration from the scenery. She is sitting on a […]

Worried about Running A Retreat? Why Not Experience One For Yourself…..

When Karen Williams, Book Mentor from Librotas, sat down with her clients on the flight to Seville in September 2014, she asked herself what she needed to worry about next. It was Karen’s first writing retreat and being responsible for others while travelling can be stressful. With relief, Karen remembered that she had “no need to […]
