Weavers Guesthouse

Exclusive weekend writing retreat
with bestselling author
Sharon Wright

21st to 23rd February 2020

"I'm just going to write because I cannot help it" Charlotte Brontë

Inspired by Charlotte herself, we are delighted to have partnered up with West Yorkshire-born author, journalist and playwright Sharon Wright for an exclusive weekend writing retreat at Weavers. Sharon’s most recent book is her critically acclaimed #1 Amazon bestseller ‘The Mother of the Brontës: When Maria Met Patrick’.

Join Sharon for a relaxed weekend of writing workshops, creating stories by drawing on the evocative place where the Brontës found their own inspiration.

Enquiries, Booking & T&Cs

As this is a special weekend, we ask that you please give us a call on 01535 643209 or email hello@weaversguesthouse.co.uk to make an enquiry, ask any questions you might have or to book you place. Bookings for the retreat cannot be made via our usual booking facility on our website. Please note, booking and cancellation terms for the retreat are different to our usual Weavers terms and conditions.

The full amount of your stay is payable upon booking. Due to the fact that the guesthouse will be set aside for exclusive use for retreat attendees on this weekend, plus the amount of preparatory work that both Sharon and ourselves have done to make the retreat happen, we hope that you will understand that bookings become non-refundable from 1st January 2020, which is different to our usual cancellation policy. Any bookings made and cancelled before 1st January 2020 will be fully refunded. In the very unlikely event that we should need to cancel for any reason, then you would receive a full refund, regardless of when the cancellation occurred.

We're not usually huge fans of lots of rules (apart from ones that keep us safe!) but we hope you can appreciate that we're a small business and, well, needs must sometimes.

We can happily cater for most dietary requirements, as long as we know in advance. Please let us know upon booking of any dietary, accessibility or other requirements that we should know about in order to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Call us to talk over any questions you might have, anytime. We're very happy to help.
