If you are interested in coming to be part of the magic please get in touch. We will send you the BOOKING FORM, T&Cs and RUNNING ORDER.


HOSTS for the weekend retreats are Belinda Harris-Reid and Brenda M. Watson + tea and cake, sea, luxury yarn in your hands, wonderful projects to make, laughter, delicious food, knitting and more knitting and chat ... oh and paddling (if the ocean is warm enough).

Day Guests

Day Guests attending all 3 days are welcome to the meet and greet supper on Thursday (no charge). We have space for one (or sometimes two) Day Guests due to people so wanting to book they are prepared to pay the single occupancy rate for a twin room. Hence having ‘day guest spaces for the whole weekend’. Day Guests are here all day; from breakfast until bedtime, so they do not miss out on the day time fun. Many guests have stayed in Lyme Bay House Hotel - the B&B across the road! So convenient.
