If you’ve got writing that you’re struggling to get done- no matter whether you’re an author, a journalist, a student or a hobbyist- then we have the perfect solution for you. Have you ever thought of taking a short break in the UK to kick-start your brain and provide you with some inspiration? Here’s why we think that our holiday cottages are perfect for providing a little writing inspiration:
Peace and quiet
It’s a cliché but planning a little quality alone-time is the perfect way to get your writing head on; getting away from it all and escaping the distractions of your friends and family could be just what you need. The tranquillity of the British countryside will make your brain forget about the things you’ve left behind at home and focus on your work instead. So stock up on supplies, book yourself a remote little cottage in the middle of nowhere and get down to some serious writing.
It’s no secret that new surroundings and new experiences can often help the brain along with some new-found inspiration. By stepping outside of your ordinary life with its routine, you’ll allow yourself the space to think and gather some great inspiration for your writing. Live in a busy city and struggling to focus? Head out to the countryside for a change of perspective. If you’re bored of the same views every day, head for the coast for a different vista to admire and inspire.
Follow in the footsteps of your favourite writers
From Hardy to Wordsworth, there’s an abundance of British writers that have been inspired to write their masterpieces by the UK’s landscape. Did you know for example, that Virginia Woolf’s inspiration for To The Lighthouse is thought to be the view from her holiday home in St Ives, across to the lighthouse on Godrevy Island? Or that Charles Dickens holidayed every year in the Victorian resort of Broadstairs, where he would write in the morning before heading down to the sea for a dip? Clearly, holidaying in the UK is a proven way of creating masterpieces!
