    I am a retired English teacher living close to family in a quiet, friendly and safe street in the centre of the historic, university town of Exeter. Since retiring I have published two books, and enjoy helping others either with their writing projects or with language learning. My hobbies are cooking, growing vegetables, travelling (of which I have done a lot) cinema, reading. and singing. I need help with a vegetable garden and a small amount of practical tasks in the house. Devonshire is a lovely county, famous for its beautiful unspoilt landscape and the sea is only 8 miles away. Public transport is very good and close by.

    Exeter is a beautiful historic city with many cultural outlets, including concerts, films, and lectures at the University The 11th. century cathedral offers musical services and events. For outside pursuits, there are many venues within easy walking distance of my house; pubs, river walks, parks in which to have picnics, and an interesting museum to explore. Shopping is very easy and varied, there is a market, and a large number of restaurants to try out,

    Having been a teacher and having travelled extensively, I am interested in meeting individuals from other countries. I can also offer some help with languages and I enjoy conversation, shared meals and shared cooking.

    My house has three bedroom, two of which are available at different times. One room is small but comfortable, the other large and ditto. There are two bathrooms, one of which I usually allocate to a visitor. There is no traffic as the street is pedestrianised. Neighbours are friendly and call by from time to time, as do members of my family - sister, daughter and grandchildren. It takes only 10 minutes to walk into the centre of town from here
