Cumberland Lodge Grounds in the summer by Catherine Candler

Join us for an opportunity to spend three days relaxing with books and writers, including Dame Zandra Rhodes, in our former royal residence in Windsor Great Park. The retreat runs from 11am on Tuesday 27 August to 4pm Thursday 29 August. All meals, from lunch on Tuesday to lunch on Thursday, accommodation, and talks, are included in the price.
