    our organic jams got onto all the top tables around the world - now the eldest son does that and
    Nick and I have a small but perfectly formed Tearoom across the courtyard. Everything simple.
    Homemade. Ingredients all local small scale producers. We were film makers so enjoy hosting
    people from anywhere. What we need is a hand with the weeding, the casual veg plot, keeping
    gates painted and the courtyard paintwork, fresh. Two local cob-style horses to enjoy,,two cheerful jack Russell terriers, a fat cat called Maude. Twenty minutes drive from huge clean
    sandy beaches. Great local markets. Not recommended for nightlife other than owls, but possible
    forays to Le Touquet In season. English speaking family surrounded by northern French. Easy
    travel to London, Paris and Brussels.
