About our home

A comfortable family home on 17 acres of fields and woodlands. Originally a traditional 3 roomed cottage it is now a large house of character, a combination of old and new. Very private and secluded, it is a haven of peace and tranquility and is home to our 4 chickens, 3 cats -who live outside- a pony and donkey and our two dogs who are great characters and very friendly.
Obviously a certain amount of pet care is required but its not as difficult or onerous as it might appear!

More about us

  1. We are a family of four, both artists and teachers, and our two boys, 12 and 9, We have done several exchanges to France before and it was terrific. We'd love to exchange our rural idyll here for something comparably idyllic beside the sea in France or Spain.
