My wife and I are both retired - she was a midwife and I an engineer. We have three children and four grandchildren. We both wish to travel more and avoid hotels but still want the comfort of staying somewhere comfortable and clean and meeting local people. We both have a reputation for being neat and tidy and will look after anywhere we stay leaving it in the same state or even better than we found it. We are friendly people who live on the edge of Dartmoor and enjoy walking and sightseeing. We were fortunate to live abroad for a number of years on Ascension and in Singapore before our retirement and met with different peoples and cultures.
