Annie’s cottage set on the steep side of a hill with views of the Gloucestershire countryside was the perfect setting for a writing retreat. Uncertain of the direction the redrafting of my novel should take, I handed the first three chapters over to Annie. Her comments, suggestions, the discussions we had together were invaluable. She’s a natural teacher, inspirational, enthusiastic, supportive, and generous with her time. She’s also a wonderful cook and the meal times with Annie and her husband after a day’s work bent over the computer and idly looking out the window, were fun. Highly recommended, I shall visit again.
