Every writer needs time and space. Time away from the distractions and demands of every day life. Space to relax, to think, to dream, to do nothing but create.

Little Book Retreats can provide you with that time and space in peaceful surroundings in the rural heart of Yorkshire. Beautiful rooms, relaxing spaces, lush gardens, delicious meals, stimulating company, no worries.

Join one of our retreats and let your creativity flow. We can't wait to welcome you.

Barney & Daisy

House Cats

Sometimes shy & glimpsed only fleetingly, they may deign to favour you with their presence & graciously allow you to stroke them if you are very lucky!




Julie is such a warm and welcoming host. Her house is absolutely beautiful and the countryside location was perfect to help me clear my mind and give my writing (and myself!) some quality time. I came away feeling rejuvenated and excited to continue work on my latest manuscript.
