If what you're working on is set in London: My lovely house, dated 1851, with my writer's desk overlooking our pretty street, is available for Writers Only rental. This is NEVER a commercial rental, it's a home full of books and art. I'm renting it writer to writer, with trust. It's in inner London, yet quiet. So if you are deep into Dickens or battling with the Blitz and want to write "in situ" do get in touch with MARION HUME. Minimum stay is 10 days.
