I look forward to meeting you.

Family information

I live with Sean in our home in Cheshire. Sean is an interior designer. He is very sporty and does triathlons and runs and cycles whenever he can. Sean’s two children are grown-up: his son lives in Manchester and his daughter is a doctor in Nottingham. Our cat, Pichou, shares our home but he is very independent. My sister and her family live in Bradford and we see them from time to time. I am interested in lots of things! I love theatre and cinema and we often attend events locally and in Manchester and Liverpool and Wales. I attend a Tai Chi class each week. I enjoy cooking a wide range of dishes and we have a garden to look after. Last year we grew potatoes! We enjoy travelling and meeting new people. Last year we spent 6 weeks in New Zealand and Hong Kong.

About the teacher’s accommodation

Our home is a comfortable, stylish period house which was built in 1906. In the hallway, you will see a photograph taken when it was built. Inside is very new. There is a lounge, dining room, conservatory and kitchen on the ground floor. We have a wood-burning stove which we light whenever it is cold. There are three double bedrooms upstairs, a spacious bathroom and a study, and a separate toilet on the top floor. You will have your own comfortable bedroom and share the bathroom.

 

About the local area

We live in a large village, Frodsham, not far from Chester. Liverpool and Manchester are easy to get to and Wales is not far away. Frodsham has a market every week and its own bakery and butcher’s. People are very friendly here. There are woods and countryside within easy walking distance – just ten minutes’ walk and you are in the countryside. There is a train station and it’s on the bus route to Chester, for example. There is plenty of history and lots of interesting places to visit and things to do within easy reach. There is a local sports centre.
