Bruce and I are early retired professionals. We enjoy going to the theatre and the cinema and meals out with friends. Bruce enjoys opera. We own a spaniel and rough collies and go for long walks and enjoy gardening. We like being rural which is just as well as that's where we live!! We like going abroad for our holidays usually somewhere warm and have plans to get to America sometime in the near future. We own an American Safari Trek RV , which spends more time in the workshop than on our drive or adventuring out! As hosts we like to provide quality things for guests to have in the cottage and we like to meet our guests when they first arrive but we are otherwise low key unless guests want more involvement with us.
