Why "The Writer's Retreat"?

When I (John) was writing my last novel, I'd spend a week a month during winter renting remote and picturesque self-catering cottages to work in.  I'd take long walks in the morning and work from lunch late into the evening.  I was inspired by the places I visited and found it a wonderful way to work.  When we moved to our own little bit of remote beauty, I wanted to create a space that would allow other writers and holidaymakers to do the same.  So whether you are here to work on your latest novel, script or idea, or if you are simply looking for a tranquil base for your walking or romantic getaway, know that where you are staying has been thought out for you by someone who regularly self-caters in exactly this sort of space.  

I can’t say enough good things about my stay at Louise's beautiful home. The house was stunning and the hospitality was outstanding. At our arrival, Louise and her sweet little girl Tovy welcomed us.
Beautiful scenic views, renovated place, every single item was brand new. Regret we stayed only a night. But at least we know where to book our future Snowdon visits.
