  • Description

    Hello. We are Darren and Claire a happily married couple who enjoy rural living. We are both from Lancashire and are currently waiting to move into our new lodge in the little village of Hambleton in the North West of England between Preston and Blackpool, famous for it's illuminations and tower. I'm currently employed in a responsible customer facing role as a guard on Northern railways but have taken a 12 month sabbatical to get involved in workaways. My husband Darren was a police officer with Lancashire constabulary but has now retired from the force. We had our own chickens called Wendy and Cappuccino who were cute and mischievous. We enjoy walking, cycling and travelling /visiting new places. We have been members of the Lake district National trust and love getting our hands dirty, getting stuck in to new projects. We like to experience new places and meet new people hopefully learn skills whilst helping our hosts meet their needs. We feel we are a passionate couple who are committed to working hard and seeing the results. We have recently returned to the UK from France and really enjoyed our 3 months there. We stayed in the Dordogne for 10 weeks and enjoyed 3 weeks in La Rochelle with 2 lovely families doing alsorts of tasks. We are currently in West Suseex with our third family who are kind and generous. We plan to return up North early in the New Year and are very much looking forward to our next challenge maybe a little nearer home. Hopefully you will like our profile and pick us and we can see you soon. The only thing we kindly ask for is two separate bedrooms. Although we are happily married we choose to sleep separately as we both get a better nights sleep. Many thanks.
