Get away from it all

Writers’ Retreats

Could there be anything better than a few days at one of our especially-chosen retreats in the charismatic Yorkshire Dales, Inspiring Scotland, Nelson’s Norfolk, Shakespeare Country, Lyrical Wales, Wonderful Cornwall or another of the stunning, inspiring and iconic parts of Britain? Just to enhance the experience even more, how about if you are staying at a beautiful hotel, meeting fellow writers and engaging in a workshop hosted by one of the Mighty Pens team? In partnership with the best in home holiday operators, Mighty Pens is delighted to be able to present these delightful Writer’s Retreats.

Writers’ Fantastic Holidays

Who are your literary heroes? Would you like to walk in their footsteps? Mighty Pens has partnered with the world’s most experienced and reliable tour operators to provide you with the writer’s holiday of a lifetime with everything arranged for you. In Britain you can walk in the footsteps of Agatha Christie, William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, William Wordsworth and others but if you wish to travel further afield, we can take you to Spain to follow in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway, to Italy to see E.M.Forster’s Room With A View, to Greece to see why Lord Byron and others loved it so much.

To Egypt to see why T.E.Lawrence was inspired by living there, to the Caribbean where Ian Fleming wrote some of his Bond novels in his house called Goldeneye. Perhaps you would rather go to India and follow in the footsteps of the great Rudyard Kipling or even take that famous trip down the Nile which inspired one of Agatha Christie’s most famous novels. All these and many others are available. On your holiday you will stay at the best hotels, be cared for by executive couriers and have with you experts on the famous authors in whose footsteps you are walking. And, of course, you will be in good company with other Mighty Pens writers.

When writers retreat, they know where to go – here are a few of those special iconic places where inspiration is in the air

Yorkshire Dales

Charles Kingsley was among the many captivated by the wonderful Dales.

Lake District

Where Beatrix Potter created a literary dynasty like no other


Breathtaking coastline that defies even the most stubborn of writer’s block

There are many more holidays on the way and Mighty Pens has partnered with well-established tour operators to ensure that as special guests you will be well cared for and fully covered by every possible insurance. There will also be a member of the Mighty Pens team with you so you will want for nothing.

Retreat Cottage? Yes of course, we have some of the very best where you can really get far from the madding crowd and relax with your writing. Where? Well, where would you like to be – Britain? France? Spain? Australia? You name it.

Really want to get away from everything?

We all feel like that sometimes. Perhaps we need some isolation in order to be able to finish that novel or that script. Mighty Pens has priority access to a number of cottages in Britain and further afield where you can stay for weeks or months.
