I live on our family sheep farm with my husband, Edward. We enjoy our family, three children & various parents, aunts, uncles & cousins who all live locally or at least within visiting range! We very much appreciate living & working in the beautiful Lake District & take every opportunity to enjoy it & also our ties with nearby Scotland. Apart from our animals, sheep; working dogs, Tess & Meg; & two cats, we love the outdoors - walking, rock climbing, cycling & skiing. Our other interests include historical properties, gardens & gardening, & art.
We are very fortunate to meet so many lovely people through letting our apartments & have made many lifelong friends as a result.
