Writing retreats

“I do not know of any creative soul who does not dream of calm, cool, grass-growing days in which to work without interruption.”

Do you identify with this quote from Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic? Writing retreats can provide the time away you need from domestic distraction and the demands of everyday life.

The B&B oasis

Writing retreats available at B&B at 23 in Wykeham, ScarboroughHow would you like a few days in a peaceful North Yorkshire oasis? Hearts and Flowers runs a boutique B&B in the charming honey-stoned village of Wykeham, near Scarborough.

There are two double rooms and one twin. Please take a look at B&B at Number 23

WiFi and dedicated writing spaces

Need WiFi for internet research? No problem. How about a separate studio space, with tea-making facilities and en-suite? There’s also a summerhouse in the garden where you are welcome to write.

Perfect for public transport

Writers retreats can be very remote. However, despite being very quiet, Wykeham is on a major bus route.

Nearby treats for writing retreats

There are the delicious Wykeham tearooms round the corner. Plus the Downe Arms with its pub and restaurant is only a minute’s walk away. We can always provide lunch if you let us know in advance.

Ample free parking

If you are a driver, then you can easily park by our B&B. Wykeham is a great centre to explore the North York Moors and the North Yorkshire coastline. York is just under an hour away.

A chance to relax and learn

During your stay, you’re more than welcome to join one of Hearts and Flowers events or workshops. These range from pop-up vintage fairs in the spring to Christmas Wreath Making in the winter.

What one of our Writers-in-Residence said:

“Number 23 is the perfect spot for a writing retreat. Jo couldn’t have made me feel more welcome. The village is so quiet, but it’s easy to catch the bus into Scarborough. It was lovely to be able to write in the studio overlooking the garden. The summerhouse was very cosy too!”
