My husband Paul and I have seen our 4 children grow up and leave home, and now we're delighted to welcome airbnb guests to share our home, which is much bigger than the 2 of us need! I'm a retired teacher and my husband - recently retired as an airline pilot - is a part-time flying instructor. We are enthusiastic gardeners and tennis players, and guests are welcome to wander round our big garden or to use our tennis court. Breakfast will usually include home-made bread, as well as home-made jams from our own garden produce.
