Deborah is a social services team manager and Mark is a recently retired social worker. We are married with two grown up children, Joshua (25) and Hannah (21). We enjoy walking, cycling and camping along with exploring the lovely environment in which we live. We (or rather Mark) have a passion for most contemporary music forms with a special interest in the life, times and work of Bob Dylan! Deborah grew up in Slough and Mark in Brighton. We met while living in London in the 1980's where we worked together for a housing project for people with learning difficulties. We consider our home to be our sanctuary at the end of the day and hope that our guests also enjoy the relaxed, slightly bohemian, ambience we endeavour to maintain.
