My husband Geoff and myself have lived here for 30 years and have always had a very busy household with 3 daughters (and lots of their friends) growing up plus their ponies, dogs & cats.
Now that our youngest daughter has left home, I felt that the house was much too quiet and decided to open our home to visiting guests.
We have recently joined airbnb on the recommendation of a friend and our first guests came earlier this year and I am really enjoying being a hostess ! I love meeting people and want to ensure that all guests have a wonderful break whilst they are with us and are thoroughly spoiled.
The things I love are family life, long walks,cutting the grass, music, books, cooking, chocolate - me in a nutshell.
