GENRE: Retreat
The Hurst

Far away from daily distractions, the Midsummer Retreat is a week where you are free to write, reconnect with your creativity and find inspiration to see your project flourish. Retreat to The Hurst, the former home of John Osborne – the perfect place to lose yourself in words. Set in the Shropshire Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the centre includes a renovated 19th-century manor house, 26 acres of lush woodland and a spring-fed lake. Make progress on your work, dedicate the time to feed your creativity and put words to the page with the inspiration of the countryside and the company of other writers. The gardens will be at their lushest midsummer with rhododendrons, redwoods, wild orchids and a kitchen garden providing plenty of fresh produce to feast on, all surrounded by the forest-covered hills.

Single room price: £660
