  1. My two weeks in Newbold House is a memory I will relish reliving for all my years to come. It was a special blessing to share space, life and experience with our writing group and your gracious, accommodating awe-inspiring staff. It felt almost at once like I’d come “home” both emotionally and spiritually, and time spent with Christopher, Margie, Seth, Ben, Martin, Ceri, Deborah, Paul, Michael, Helen, Victor, Heather (of the soft smile and the great hands!), David and a host of other beautiful people who populated my time at Newbold with your innocence and lightness and dare I say, Magic? My gratitude is boundless for the alchemy you helped create in my soul…*


    • Thank you very much Mary for your beautiful energy and your kind words. It was a pleasure for us to host you and your fantastic group. This is your home and we will always be happy to welcome you at Newbold.
