Writing Retreat 2018

Greenacre Writers is a community not for profit organisation.

FULLY BOOKED

Amazing 4 day spring Greenacre writing retreat at Greenway, Agatha Christie's holiday home!!!


Near Brixham, Devon, TQ5 0ES.
4pm Thur March 15th-3pm Sun 18th 2018.

The retreat is aimed at writers who want to spend time on their writing. Writers meet at mealtimes and can choose to discuss their writing if they wish. In the evening there is the chance to meet and chat or have readings of work in progress.


The house overlooks the river Dart and is set in a spectacular part of Devon.

The apartment in 'the' house has four double bedrooms and we would use these as our writing areas - though there is a kitchen/dining room, sitting room and private garden and these would be available too.
 

This impressive Georgian house was built in about 1792, but the Apartment is decorated as it was when the house was refurbished for modern living in 1938, and it reflects the happy holiday heyday of Greenway in the 1950s.



Whilst staying in the house, guests have access to the house, shop, cafe during opening hours and unlimited access to gardens. A great place to set a murder mystery! We also have free entry to various other National Trust Properties. A free tour of Greenway. And 10% discount at all NT shops on the English Riviera!!!






Meals would be on a sort of Arvon basis, i.e. a rota - you would only prepare dinner once and clear up once - apart from clearing your own breakfast/lunch. (There is a cafe so lunch can be bought outside the house)


Driving is about 4 hours from London
Train 2.5 hours London to Newton Abbot from Paddington and then 35mins by taxi.
