I have been hosting guests at Mainholm with Graham since 2004. The whole house is made available for guests. We live in a separate apartment. We're available if needed - otherwise the space is all yours. I love to prepare fresh, tasty meals with good local ingredients. Mainholm's hospitality is widely acclaimed locally - we're very popular for locals' special occasions. We're a well travelled couple - we know what to offer as a unique and quality hospitality experience for our guests. Our guests are often thrilled with their 'discovery' when they find us.
