Enchanting Voyages of Discovery
immersive, all-inclusive, inspiring Experiences
My Experiences are a carefully curated mix of online, London and UK-based all-inclusive adventures ranging from a couple of hours to five precious days, all designed to encourage you to take some time out of your busy life to reward your hard work and achievements, make new friends and reignite your creative spirit.
By the end of the first evening of my Bleak House Experience in Devon, I knew it was going to be a great week. Everyone got on so well together from the start and there was no shortage of subjects to discuss and a lot of laughter too. This is why Annabel is so clever, she brings together people from all over the globe, who somehow seem to have so much in common.
I feel sure some life long friendships were forged during this week. Annabel had planned every element of our stay, her attention to detail exemplary, our every comfort catered for. What a truly exceptional and unique week.
I only run a small number of Experiences each year and try to ensure a variety of locations and duration. Most of my Experiences have very limited spaces available and they tend to sell out quickly. Each Bleak House Experience is entirely unique and and is planned in intricate detail to suit the people who are coming.
Whether it is a creative e-course, a quiet wander around London followed by tea and cake with new friends, or a four-day all-inclusive escape to show you the most beautiful and interesting parts of the UK, you will leave feeling refreshed, revitalised and inspired.

Devon was magical. Annabel had thought of everything. The day trips were to such interesting places and even the travelling time to those places was fun on trains, boats and cars.
It was so relaxing to have everything organised, all you had to do was be there and enjoy yourself. I haven’t laughed so much for ages and I couldn’t recommend it more highly. Thank you Annabel!
My Experiences are designed to show you the most beautiful and interesting parts of the UK, from windswept beaches to country houses, glamorous hotels to tumbledown beach shacks, sub-tropical gardens and secret London walks.
I’ve not stopped thinking about my first Bleak House Experience since I got back. It was just what I needed to relax and recharge after a hectic year.
I was nervous to be sharing a room and house with 5 women I didn’t know, but it was amazing how quickly we all bonded and I feel I’ve made some lifelong friends. Sharing the fabulous views and adventures with like minded women is something I’ll cherish forever.
Thank you Annabel for a wonderful week, can’t wait for the next one!

A picnic in the sand dunes, a cliff top restaurant to ourselves, swimming in the sea and the chance to make the most wonderful friendships.

Oh my gosh, I’ve been telling all my friends about the first Bleak House Experience, and if you’re on the fence at all you need to jump off and just do it!! We spent the most lovely week exploring this sweetest spot of the UK under Annabel’s expert guidance. As the only American, I couldn’t have felt more welcomed or more satisfied with such a beautifully British experience.
