I am a self-employed gardener, originating from the Yorkshire Dales, and my husband Martin is a self-employed builder. I have lived in Nottinghamshire for 25 years but often return to the Dales to visit my family. We love anything outdoorsy such as walking, cycling, running and skiing. In fact our honeymoon involved glacier walking in Norway! My holiday heaven would be a cottage, log burner, local pub, country walks and good food.... which is what we've tried to emulate in Holly Berry. Out of interest, my holiday hell would be a Benidorm all inclusive beach holiday... sorry folks!! Being married to a builder has its perks....we moved to our derelict 250 year old cottage in 2014 and spent many months renovating it. Martin then decided to turn his attention to the little old smithy building that was full of cement mixers, tools and years of dust and neglect. Within a matter of months he had converted it into Holly Berry, and the rest is history.....
