I am a mother of two beautiful children aged two and four. I am wife to the charismatic and generous Dave. Travel has always been an interest and I have continued to travel with my family. When our son was one, we took him to France and England. I also enjoy being at home and making jam from fruit in our garden, and renovating historic houses with my husband. People work very hard and when they go away need a house to be comfortable and to work for them. I kept this in mind when renovating the cottage and I hope people will feel comfortable and relaxed in our cottage.
