Writer's Retreat

A peaceful bolt-hole in the North Devon countryside where you can focus on you and your writing.

Northcote Nest is a hidden gem, nestled in the hills between Umberleigh and Chulmleigh.

This luxe writer's retreat will allow you to relax and get into a flow.

You'll be fed nutritious and delicious food (personalised to your needs). 

And there'll be ample opportunities for writing support from an experienced editor and copywriter (moi!).

Your time here is a bespoke 1:1 experience that will re-awaken your inner word witch.

Relax in luxurious countryside comfort

A cosy queen bed, with sumptuously soft pillows and duvet and an airy space to relax in. A good night's sleep is exactly what you need for a productive weekend of writing.

The time and space you need to focus

The Nest is peaceful and free of distractions. Make notes snuggled on the sofa, or type away on your laptop at the writing desk. I'll be there when you need me for some accountability and encouragement
