My backgound is in cooking and Anna in legal secretarial. Apart from old buildings we we enjoy our elderly gaff rigged yacht . Anna is an accomplished musician and I am a passionate reader. We have many books for guests to browse through . We both spend hours in what seems to be our untameable .We look forward this year to our own brussell sprouts, potatoes, courgettes, broad beans, runner beans, tomatoes, rhubarb, red currants , gooseberries and herbs . We are fairly amiable and enjoy a chat if you wish to socialise
