THE WRITER'S SPACE

An alternative work space is available from June to October. It is most suitable for writers, but visual artists may also find that the Writer’s Space meets their needs.

It is a 14th century vaulted cellar which, despite the name, is not actually under a house but on street level. It has its own entrance in a quiet side street, right next to Atelier de la Rose’s large garden that goes down to the woods. The thick stone walls provide a cool environment in the summer months. These walls also stop any Wifi signal entering the space, but the Wifi signal works everywhere else in the property including the garden. An extension lead is provided to allow people to work outdoors in good weather.

There are no windows and no natural light. It is ideal for those who want to work without any distractions.

Here are some basic dimensions:

➢ floor surface area 13.20 m² (140 ft²);
➢ one work bench of 3 metres long by 80 centimetres deep (10 feet by 2.5 feet);
➢ one work bench of 1.60 metres long by 80 centimetres deep (5.25 feet by 2.5 feet);
➢ highest point of vault 3.85 metres (9.85 feet).
