Time to write

Monday May 13th - Saturday May 18th 2019

Lumb Bank

Imagine 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, supplies of tea and biscuits 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.

Single room price: £648

This retreat is available half-price for Arvon 18-25 members and benefits-related concessions.

Warning: First parameter must either be an object or the name of an existing class in /home/ on line 29
