About A forthcoming writing retreat in England's idyllic Shropshire Hills
Longhouse cover
Description Our 16th century longhouse originally sheltered both farmers and livestock from the elements. It was built during the reign of Henry VII, who united two warring royal houses. Over its 500 years, our longhouse has found itself on both sides of the England-Wales border. Today, it sits in England, overlooking the river Teme and the foothills of the Welsh Brecon Beacons.

Every place has a feeling. The feeling at Longhouse is one of openness and welcome. Of coming together. Of connection in the midst of seclusion. We'd like to build on this feeling. So we've begun turning this beautiful place into a small farm and writing retreat.

Please follow us as we build Longhouse, as we discover ways to share our philosophy: that there is nothing quite so fulfilling as the time, space, and peace to write, while having the opportunity to connect with other writers on your own schedule. Let us bring fresh eggs from our future chickens to your private cottage doorstep. Listen to the hypnotic sound of our future sheep in the pasture just metres away. Watch the sun and rain rush in from distant hills. Walk the ancient footpaths that surround us. Write.

Soon, we'll be waiting for you.

In the meantime, we'll probably have a few "new farmer" fiascoes you don't want to miss.
