Roaring fires, cosy interiors, starry nights; most of our retreats so far have taken place in the autumn and early spring, when the days are still short and our inclination is to hunker down indoors. But for a long time we have wanted to do something in the summer months. The snag: our favourite venues are full up for the holidays. So, what to do?
We have found the perfect solution close to home on the coast near Falmouth. Mylor Yacht Club enjoys a spectacular situation right at the water’s edge in Mylor Harbour, across from the Roseland Peninsula and the Carrick Roads, some of the most beautiful sailing waters in the UK.
We are offering a series of three mini day retreats on summer Sundays: 10 June, 8 July and 5 August, a chance to learn new skills and spend time writing in good company, with our trademark delicious food. Our themes are Personal writing (10 June), Turning life into fiction (8 July), and Pure fiction (5 August).
Each workshop runs from 9.45am (arrive in time for coffee before a 10.00am start) and finishes at 4.00pm. During the day you will take part in practical writing sessions around our theme, enjoy a tasty lunch of summer soup, salad and Kath’s famous quiche, writing time in the afternoon, and a final round up over cream tea.
Each workshop is £40.00 per person including lunch and all refreshments. You can book here, and there is a discount if you book a place for the full series of three.
We can’t think of a better way to spend a summer Sunday beside the water.
