Reading Retreat

Welcome to Reading Retreat


Do you dream of immersing yourself in reading without distraction?  We are not talking about those snatched moments of holiday reading. Imagine not having to stop to prepare meals or answer emails.  No interruptions, no phones, no access to those must-do jobs around the home?  Most importantly, absolutely NO guilt about just sitting and reading.

Welcome to our Reading Retreats - We offer you a fully pampered getaway in the country or by the sea.  Our small group luxury retreats take place in lovely houses around the UK.   Our single priority is to give you space and time to read.  All your meals are prepared, speciality teas,  freshly brewed coffee and soft drinks are on tap and you can choose solitude or shared time with other readers. 

Reading Prescription - You may already have your stack of books selected but, if you are looking for inspiration, we offer you a 'Reading Prescription'.  Following a discussion with you, we will prepare a personally tailored reading list.

At each retreat we also welcome an author, who joins us for dinner one evening, to talk about their writing and their own enjoyment of reading.

Phones etc. We would love you to leave all your electronics at home and be completely distraction-free, however we know that this is not always possible, so we offer a 'device sitting' service where we can look after them for you whilst you stay with us to keep distraction to a minimum.

Can't think of anything more perfect?   For details of our up-coming Retreats check our Retreats and pop over to our Contact page and leave your details to make sure you are the first to know about our 2021 calendar.



We are so disappointed to have had to cancel our remaining Reading Retreats for 2020.  If you were booked to join us you will already have received communication from us.

This decision was not taken lightly but it is very important to keep our Readers safe and ensure that those that are joining us from overseas are able to attend without the need for quarantine. 

We really look forward to seeing you in 2021 - we are working with our venues to finalise dates for next year and they will appear on our Retreats page when confirmed.  Make sure you join our mailing list here to ensure you get the news first.  


Our next retreat will be the gorgeous Beach Front House in Suffolk.

"This is the most, luxurious, indulgent and fantastically

catered weekend I've ever spent."
