After the last of our three children left home, I decided I didn't want to live in a huge house with empty rooms. My partner and I have travelled a great deal ourselves, and we are keen to make it easier for others. I love old houses, and when we discovered this old church, it was hard to resist. I am often described as calm and serene, I attribute this to my 40 years of meditation. I have worked in everything from bridal gown designer to social services. My partner now works as a university lecturer in film and television, but has in the past been a TV producer locally, as well as in the UK and NZ. We believe we are friendly, tolerant,and easy to get along with and used to mingling with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. I am sure you will feel welcome.
