Greg and I are Gloucestershire born and bred, but moved to our home in Worcestershire 23 years ago and love it! We feel fortunate to be able to look out of our windows and see fields from the front and back so our home has a rural feel, but still close to all the beautiful Cotswold towns and villages.
Greg is the well travelled one and will happily chat to anyone. He speaks conversational French. He is a 'workaholic', but when he has the time he enjoys cooking, motorbike touring and is passionate about the beauty of Oxford. He is an avid Michael Connelly reader.
I am a 'country girl' and am at my happiest walking dogs over the beautiful Cotswold hills. Outside of work, I enjoy hunting for treasures around Bootsales and gardening. We turned our back lawn into a wild flower meadow 2 years ago. Our garden now has a somewhat 'natural' look, but the huge amount of nature that has visited it this year has given us both enormous pleasure. We also have a 'Hedgehog holiday home' and a 'Bee Hotel'.
