Tim and I moved to Durham after living in London for nearly 35 years. We are kind of semi retired allowing us time to work a little, me as a freelancer in public relations and Tim as a Dental Equipment Engineer and we use the rest of our valuable time volunteering & doing the important things in life that the pressures of work can sometimes prevent us from doing. We have a lovely home & gardens, and generous living space. We are ideally placed in High Shincliffe, a walk from us into the centre of Durham is 3 km and will take you past quaint pubs, the River Wear, Maiden Castle and University playing fields. We love travelling around the world, Africa especially. We have hosted foreign language students for many years and are very comfortable meeting new people. We offer as much support or independence as you need as a guest in our home. We look forward to welcoming you.
