Debbie PW

Hello! My husband, daughter and I live in beautiful Dorset, about 5 miles inland from Poole and close to the picturesque town of Wimborne Minster.
We have the best of both worlds right on our doorstep – beautiful sandy beaches and lovely green countryside and forest. The larger towns of Bournemouth, Southampton and Salisbury are not too far away either.
I am a Foreign Languages / EFL teacher and have taught for 15 years. My main interests are theatre and dance and as a family we enjoy bike riding, swimming and travelling.
We offer a comfortable, modern home with your own en-suite bedroom and separate study area.

Courses taught

 Family information

I live with my husband and we are both in our 40s. We have one daughter (2013) and she loves gymnastics, dancing, stories and talking! Our families live in Somerset and Derbyshire and there may be opportunities to visit them. We don’t have any pets due to certain allergies to animal fur.

I enjoy dancing and theatre. I would happily take you to a dance class with me or go and watch something at the theatre or cinema. I enjoy days out and sight-seeing too! My husband is a more serious bike rider and he also does yoga – a class which you could go along to if interested.

About the teacher’s accommodation

We live in a chalet bungalow. The entire upstairs would be for your use, which includes a double bedroom, en-suite shower room and separate study. There are a few shops, a coffee shop and a couple of pubs within walking distance. There is also meant to be a leisure centre opening this summer just up the road.

About the local area

We live in a semi-rural area but there are good bus / train links to the larger towns. Horse-riding is popular here and there are plenty of exercise classes in nearby leisure centres which also have public swimming pools and gyms.
There is a climbing wall in Poole and a tennis club in Wimborne. There are theatres in Wimborne, Poole and Bournemouth and a multiplex cinema a few miles away.
The main sandy beaches are between Bournemouth and Poole and of course the New Forest for walking and exploring is only 15 miles away. For spectacular coastal walks the Purbecks and Jurassic Coast are only about 10 miles away.
