I'm a friendly woman in my late-40s who lives in the back half of the cottage (Garden Cottage) with a mix of family, friends and animal friends living or visiting here too. I have worked for many years in aid/international humanitarian work, with a focus on East Africa. Nowadays I am freelance and work from home on environmental, animal welfare and art projects. In particular my rentals are helping fund a rescue and advocacy project for the podencos of Spain. Podencos are wonderful, gentle, athletic hunting dogs that are abused in their working lives and abandoned in their hundreds of thousands at the end of the short hunting season. I rent out the front half of the cottage as a separate apartment (Harbour Cottage) and aim to make it a welcoming place where visitors can really feel at home. I love to meet people from all over the world.
