We are not accepting new applications for Creative Retreats until further notice. We are only making space for those people whose retreat we had to cancel in 2020 until April 2021, and then we will be implementing a new application system. Please keep an eye on the website for the new system in due course.

For Benjamin Britten, a quiet place to compose was absolutely essential. He was fortunate enough to achieve this for most of his life, spending his last two decades at The Red House, down a quiet lane on the outskirts of Aldeburgh. Today, Britten Pears Arts are entrusted with a number of properties – three on The Red House site, and one nearer the town centre – that we are happy to offer to composers and other artists for the purposes of a peaceful, creative retreat. The properties are suitable for individuals, or for 2 (or more) people. To find out more, please see Useful Information first of all, then click on links to the individual properties.
