I'm a self employed Property Developer (hence the holiday lets!) and live in my native North East with my Wife and two children. I've a love for football and over the past year have become a qualified football coach for a local youth team now that my playing days are (nearly!) over and I also sit on my local Parish Council. As a host I am aiming to be helpful and respectful and I hope that people staying at my properties enjoy the local area I love as much as I do.
