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 retreats take place in lovely houses around the country. 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.


Come and join us in this stunning beach facing house in Thorpeness, Suffolk. With breathtaking sea views from most rooms and a 30 metre walk to the beach, this retreat is idyllic. With cosy rooms and wood-burning stoves, this house offers the perfect Winter Reading Retreat.
