  • Description


    We live in a beautiful house deep in the countryside with a large garden which needs tidying up.
    We have two dogs and four grown up children who live in London.
    The house is often in use for church community events and there are many opportunities to meet our friends and family.
    It is a quiet and peaceful location.
    We enjoy discussing life and politics and events. We enjoy getting to know visitors from other cultures.
