I've loved living at Laurel Bank since 1996. I used to do B&B here early on. During those few years I had people from all over staying here. It will be good fun to rekindle those days!
I work as a T.A. at a local primary school (since 2000)
My husband, Dave, has lived here since 2003. He has his own business in joinery & carpentry. We love our village life.
Our home is at it's best with more people around. Our children (6 in all) have grown and left the nest (most still near to home), leaving us with 5 spare bedrooms! Our larger families (& friends) are from Liverpool, Nottingham & New Zealand, and they all love visiting us for good company, food, walks and real ale.
We love our local walks, short strolls and lengthier, more challenging, right from our doorstep. We also love our touring caravan, and often choose sites very close to home as our area is so gorgeous.
Travelling the world was a huge part of my life before children, and since Dave and I have hooked up we've enjoyed trips to Bulgaria, Spain, Singapore and best of all, New Zealand, touring in a camper van, north to South, visiting family.
When not working, walking or touring, we relax with good home cooked meals, movies, music, TV, reading, wine, ale........different sorts of all of them.......variety is the spice of life!
We have grand children now, and love their visits and the calm when they've gone home. Our home is very 'child friendly'.
We enjoy meeting new visitors at our friendly home
