Hi I'm Stephen,
I live in the house with my daughter (10 yrs) often at her mums house & our cat kizzie.
You will be made to feel very welcome, from my half Scottish half Yorkshire unfluencesas. two of the most genial places you could hope to find.
you'll find the house atmosphere very easy going, happy to hang out for a cup of tea, or equally happy to leave you to your own devices, it's big enough to not be under each others feet, Sky T.V.,3 seater sofa, & stereo in the room.
About me, i'm a Shiatsu therapist (Japanese therapy, simular to Accupuncture),
I play guitar (badly) & interested in lots of the usual things, music, theatre, cooking, gardening, cycling and am happy to give tips & pointer on whatever you need, cycle routes in the area etc...there are maps, guides, up to date theatre brochures.
Feel free send me a message if you have any further questions or requests.
we are a 15 mins train ride from Central station,( in the vilage of Elderslie 5 mins from Johnstone train station) so you could take your bike on the train, or indeed you can borrow mine!
I cycle to Glasgow, but that may be a bit much for most, fine if you have time to go at a nice slow pace ( 1 hour) as the cycle is fantastic & scenic, passing through 3 parks aolong the way.There are also 4 train stations all down the route if you didn't want to cycle the whole way.
there is a small pool near the house, or a huge Lloyds Gym 4 mmins by train or 15 mins cycle.
food shops are handy too, 4 mins to veg shop, 7 mins to fantastic butcher shop who sell Kangeroo, Aligator & all sorts of exotic fair, but is at heart traditional scottish.
There are 6 super markets within 10 walk or (5 mins by car), same distance for 14 screen cinema. feel free to contact for any other info.
kindest regards until we meet,
