Hi, we are John and Carole from Brooksby in Leicestershire in the very middle of England. We have 4 children and three grandchildren. We live by a quiet river, and love hosting visitors in our two home built cabins. We first discovered Airbnb has guests in Corfu, and have since been Airbnb guests in Paris, Turin and Hay on Wye. John runs canoe building holidays here. You may well see canoe building going on during your stay.

During your stay
You can keep yourself to yourself, or you can come and ask us if you need anything, our house is on the same property, just 50 metres from the cabin. I am particularly keen to hear your suggestions about the cabin and things which would make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. You are always welcome to take a canoe paddling on the quiet river near the cabin.
