Bridget M

I have been a Primary school teacher for 27 years and now teach English as a foreign language from our home in Devon. I am able to offer personalised English language lessons on a one to one basis covering a wide range of needs and levels of ability and ages from 10 to 90. I can offer Business English and, as my husband runs his own business, there would be considerable opportunity to develop Business English skills outside of the teaching time. Our home offers a peaceful place to study and yet is within easy reach of the vibrant city of Exeter and all the outstanding tourist areas in the south west.

 Family information

I live at home with my husband who is in his 50’s and loves running, climbing and walking. I love walking and also run. We have two grown up children in their 20’s.They are married now but they may visit us when they want to go surfing on the Devon or Cornwall beaches. I have a colleague who teaches foreign students at home as well and, if you both speak a different language, it would be possible to meet up with a fellow student for excursions. I am a keen walker and walk our dog every day in the countryside. I have also walked the whole of the south west coast path, which is 630 miles all the way around, with my husband. I know the coast very well and would be able to take you to some of the most beautiful areas. I also walk on Dartmoor too and can take you on easy or more challenging walks to some areas of outstanding beauty. I love history and can take you to Exeter and some of the National Trust properties in the area.

About the teacher’s accommodation

I am able to offer a beautiful home full of old character set in the village of Sandford in rural mid-Devon. The house is at the edge of the village but is only a 3-minute walk away from the local village shop, pubs and bus stop. Our home is over 475 years old and is full of wonderful features. There are 2 double rooms available with access to wifi and a table for studying. There is a private shower room available for student’s use only. The teaching room is in a large airy room which also has a sofa and a space for relaxing at the end of the day.

About the local area

Our home is situated in a tourist area and is within a 20 minutes drive from the vibrant city of Exeter with all its shops, cafes, theatres and night life. It is easily accessible by bus or train. It is 30 minutes to Dartmoor and 40 minutes to the coast. We are ideally placed to reach the best parts of the South West because our home is in mid-Devon. There are many amazing walks and places to stop for a picnic along the coast. The local countryside has peaceful, stunning, steep river valleys. At the beaches in North Devon you can learn to surf or just have a swim then eat fish and chips. Our village has two vibrant pubs one of which was visited by the famous model Kate Moss! There are opportunities to visit National Trust historic properties in the area such as Castle Drogo, Killerton House and Knightshayes.
