Annie is a brilliant host and true to her word when she says she is there to support you and “this is your space and your time”. Having a dedicated space just to focus on your writing and the simple thing of having someone there to look after you makes all the difference. Annie’s retreats is free of distractions and gives you permission to push your excuses to one side and just focus on your work.
Annie’s serves up a range of delicious and hearty meals that will not leave you wanting. The room is cosy with everything you need, including a pot belly stove, which is especially wonderful during winter. Just a short walk away are the woods, perfect for head clearing and thinking through stuff. I got plenty done during my three nights at Annie’s and would happily recommend it anyone looking for a solo writing retreat in the West Country.
