Our house was built in 1540 and is now a happy quirky home where we make cider and grow fruit. We love gardens, trees, art, music (especially Jazz), splashes of colour, Labradors, cats and of course we delight in meeting people from all over the world. We have lived and worked in both hemispheres and have welcomed visitors from 20 different countries over the past few years.
