  • Description

    Description

    I am a semi- retired senior executive who lives with a retired partner. We have a grown up family who now live around the world. We understand the differing cultures in other countries and can offer a broad understanding of life in the UK
    We value more the cultural exchange than the contribution that any individual can offer to our garden and boat projects.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are professional, educated and generous people. We have a grown up family who now live around the world. We travel regularly to distant destinations and understand the differing cultures in other countries and can offer not only a broad understanding of life in the UK but also share with hosts our experiences of other parts of the world.
    We value more the cultural exchange than the contribution that any individual can offer to our garden and boat projects.
    Our guests are invited to live with us and share in all of our family activities. The accommodation is such that our guests can, if they so wish, spend time in their own private space.
