Welcome to The Writing Retreat

Hosted by Kath Morgan and Jane Moss

We love going on retreat; the feeling of escape, the excellent company, and the shared stories around the big table. We love losing ourselves in our writing. We love good food and wine. We love Cornwall, the sea and the countryside, beautiful houses and gardens, and we love real fires.

Our aim at The Writing Retreat is to provide the sort of retreats we would like to go on ourselves, whether that’s for a full residential retreat over five days, or a mini-retreat on Sundays throughout the year. In 2019 – our fifth anniversary year – we are hosting two full retreats, the first in early April at The Old Sawmills on the Fowey River, and the second in November at Rosemerryn near Lamorna Cove.

Our Sunday one-day retreats on the south coast were a hit in 2018 and we are delighted to offer them again this year. Winter Sundays will take place in the picturesque village of Devoran, and Summer Sundays in the scenic setting of Mylor Harbour. These were very popular last year and we advise you to book early to avoid disappointment.

To treat yourself or someone else to a week or a day of writing bliss, book here

Cheers everybody
