Teacher introduction

Welcome! My husband and I live in a lovely area of the Cotswolds which is between London, Oxford and Bath. The river Thames actually flows about 300 metres from our house through the meadows nearby. My husband is a very good cook and loves making lots of fresh and tasty meals. We both enjoy travelling, have taught in other countries and love meeting new people. I have been a Primary teacher for 20 years and look forward to making fun and interesting lessons for you.

Teacher’s hobbies and interests

I love running and my husband is a very good golfer. We would be happy to let you join us in these hobbies. We all love cooking and would be keen to show you some of our favourite recipes. We have fun playing a variety of board games and card games and hope you would like to join in too.

About the teacher’s accommodation

Our home has 3 bedrooms and private bathroom for guests. We use our smallest bedroom as a study area. Downstairs we have a lovely large kitchen, a sitting room and bright and sunny morning room which looks out onto our garden. On sunny days we love sitting outside having coffee or a meal.

About the local area

We have lovely walks around us and the little town we live in is old and has an interesting history. There are also coffee shops, quaint pubs, a swimming pool and the Cotswold water park nearby. We sometimes visit a lakeside restaurant and watch the water sports, you might like to try this. One of our favourite places is the ancient stone circle at Avebury which you can walk around. We also love visiting Windsor Castle or the Roman baths in Bath. There are so many lovely places we would be happy to show you.
