    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cornwall is a great place for a variety of activities sea sports especially the SW coastal path is 5 minutes away, a good place to explore

    I am very close to the local station from where you can explore the rest of Cornwall easily there are two very friendly pubs close by, lots of beaches and quaint small harbour towns l am happy to give lifts to places that are not easily accessible. It’s a simple life here, the few neighbours are friendly and welcoming.i enjoy having people to stay I live a reasonably quiet life but that doesn’t mean to say you have to! I am the mother of 4 grown up sons all living away with their own families so am well used to the hustle and bustle of life! I do take in B&B guests mainly coastal walkers occasionally. I live in a converted barn which once housed livestock from the farm. There are a few of us living here in what used to be the old farmyard.we are surrounded by sheep and livestock. I have a dog named Nell who loves people and loves to be in the mix of things.
