GENRE: Centre Retreat
No distractions but the occasional owl and the crackle of the wood stove. Retreat to Lumb Bank, Ted Hughes’s former home, surrounded by steep woodland and rivers, packhorse trails and ruins of old mills, to find the motivation to get to grips with your work-in-progress or begin something new. With all day to yourself, near-infinite supplies of tea and cake on hand, and the invitation to dine with your fellow writers in the evening, you can really give your writing the time and focus it needs.
