Owner Pear Tree B&B in Hildersham, Cambridge. I also run an exhibition and conference company along with my husband Sean. We run these events mainly in Africa: Kenya, Nigeria and Mozambique. My husband and I are both from South Africa originally. Our son, Sholto, helps with the B&B in Hildersham and he lives on the premises. I went to school at St Mary's School for Girls in Johannesburg and then University of Witwatersrand. I also went to Oxford Brooks University in England. Sholto is an Arsenal supporter and mad about football!

We try hard to make our cottage as lovely as it can be. We repaint each Spring so that it is fresh for the next year and I am constantly on the look out for things that I think will improve it (like a new rug, tea pot. We have some old photos of Hildersham on the walls that are interesting and I have also got some beautiful photos of Cambridge on the walls.

I love chocolate and mountain views; swimming in a warm sea, Cape Town, the Lake District, Catcher in the Rye, Tamla Motown and jazz.

Relax and make yourselves at home as much as possible. Our cottage is your home for as long as you are here and we want you to be comfortable and enjoy being here.
