Terms and Conditions

If you make a booking to attend an event at The Writing Retreat, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions.


All bookings must be accompanied by the appropriate deposit. Reservations made with a booking form will be held for five working days to give time for a deposit to be paid. After that, the booking will be treated as cancelled and may be given to somebody else.

The full balance of payment is due 6 weeks before the retreat starts and must be paid promptly at this time. If the balance is not received, we reserve the right to consider the booking as being cancelled and will seek to refill the space. In this situation, the deposit will not be refundable.


In the event of a cancellation made by us, your deposit and any other balance of monies paid will be refunded in full. However, we are not responsible for any other costs incurred by yourself as a result of the cancellation and we advise that you take out travel insurance to cover you against any such loss.

If you cancel your booking six weeks or longer before the start date, we will refund your money in full, minus an administration charge of £60.

If you cancel your booking with less than six weeks  to go before the start date, we will not be able to refund your money. We strongly advise you to take out travel insurance to cover you against any such loss.


Please note that all participants at The Writing Retreat must be aged 18 years and over.

We reserve the right to ask any participant to leave the retreat if we consider their behaviour to be unacceptable, or detrimental to the health or well-being of others on the retreat. In this circumstance, you will not be entitled to a refund.

The Writing Retreat reserves the right to make changes to the programme should this be necessary.
