I enjoy travel and have recently made trips to Australia and New Zealand. I trained as a woven textile designer and am interested in all types of textiles and art. I also like to go cycling, walking and swimming.

Lovely, friendly and welcoming host - I was immediately greeted with a cup of tea and a chat. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and a welcome moment of calm away from the usual family breakfast mayhem! Can not fault my stay at all. Thanks Rowena!
Rowena's home is in a quiet residential location within 10mins walk of the Kedleston Rd site of Derby University but also close to main road routes and bus routes. There is parkland nearby.
Rowena made me very welcome, kindly collecting me from the station and inviting me to join herself and her visiting friend and daughter in the kitchen for a welcome cup of tea. They were all very friendly and as we chatted we found we had a lot in common. My room was as described, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with a firm mattress on the bed. Excellent ensuite shower and toilet and the towelling robe was an unexpected touch. Good internet access through WiFi.
Rowena provided a great vegetarian breakfast for me even though I had only booked the day before. It kept me going until teatime! She also gave me lots of helpful information about finding my way to the part of the university I was visiting and how to get from there back to the station for my onward journey. If I visit Derby again I would have no hesitation in staying here again. Thank you Rowena
Rowena is a wonderful host. She is very kind, warm and friendly. The room and the bathroom are clean and tidy. Waking up with the view of her garden and the quiet neighbourhood was very pleasant. It is also very near to the University of Derby~
Rowena is a very good host and she was kind enough to pick me up from the train station! The room was very clean and tidy and the location is very beautiful and safe, very close to the University of Derby, 15 min walk! I would recommend her as a host!
Rowena is a wonderful host. I liked her very much and her ensuite room is delightful--sunny and overlooking her garden. She is warm, friendly, and gracious and I would recommend her to anyone interested in staying in Derby.
It was a pleasure to have Rowena as a guest, they really imbraced the area with lots of walking adventures. Thank you for leaving Between the Beaches as tidy as you found it, most appreciated.
Rowena was a very welcoming guests. Polite, considerate, friendly and accommodating she is also a host in Derby UK, so we were able to swap notes. And discuss benefits and opportunities available to mature women who have time to experience joys of travelling.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rowena as a guest and would check her out as a host if I am ever in Derby.
