This is my family home. I'm delighted to share it with frequent visitors who have always enjoyed and respected the space as if it was their own.
You won't have to worry about neighbours (Unless the sheep are in residence in the next field!) as the nearest is a quarter of a mile away.

I'm a retired teacher thoroughly loving doing all the things I couldn't when I was working full time! High on this list is gardening. It's also brilliant to be able to attend Yoga and Pilates classes. I'm involved in charity work and am an active Green Party member.
As a host I'm relaxed and informal. Breakfast is Vegcon (vegetarian continental style). So you decide when and how you want to breakfast. I'm always keen that you tell me what you like so I can tailor the choices for you.
I've always encouraged feedback and have used it to develop my hosting. Most of all, whether your visit is for business or pleasure, I'm committed to ensuring you have an enjoyable and relaxing time
