Are you looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; to find creative refuge—that perfect peaceful location where you can finish your writing or just read and reflect? Our retreats, set in the stunning surroundings of rural north Wales, offer the perfect creative escape. Find tranquillity on woodland walks or try local beers at the village inn. Take inspiration from the spectacular sea views over Cardigan Bay, share ideas over dinner or simply just sit back and relax in Tŷ Newydd’s cosy library. Everyone will have a room of their own, and homemade meals, made with local ingredients, will be prepared for you.

On this retreat, a writer in residence will be available for short one-to-one writing surgeries to look at your work. A few workshops will also be available should you wish.


Please enquire when booking should you wish to extend your stay by an extra night or two.
