Adam and Einir here, we are professionals who work full time in management which helps to support 2 children in Uni and one expensive teenager!
We love to travel, this year we've booked a yurt with log burner for the Hay on Wye festival, we're of to Jamaica later in the year and have recently returned from weekend breaks to Rome and Amsterdam. We love experiencing different cultures and different food, especially when it's made for us.
We spent the last few years renovating our old cottage which has had many uses over the years including a drapers shop, fishermans cottage and tavern hence its quirky layout.
We have a little dog who is a huge part of the family and enjoy taking him for walks, geocaching, mudlarking and sampling wines from around the world. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
