I'm an academic researcher at Newcastle University studying rural development. I live in a small village outside Newcastle in the North East of England with my partner and two children aged 18 and 19. I like meeting new people and have stayed in lots of Airbnb places now. I will respect your privacy and space and am very relaxed about staying in different types of accommodation. I like reading, art, cinema, walking, cooking, gardening and I keep bees. I'm fairly quiet and calm and have a good sense of humour.
