Where you’ll be

Dorset, England, United Kingdom

You’ll soon start to soak up the Dorset atmosphere. First you’ll notice how quiet it is. Not too many cars pass through the lane but listen and you’ll hear the sounds of the countryside: the clip-clop of horses from the local stables, birdsong in the morning, the hooting of the local barn owl at night. And if you’re up early on a summer’s morning, don’t be surprised if you catch sight of a deer and her fawns in the garden. A word of warning though—the local farmers really do farm, so occasional tractors, muck spreaders, and harvesters are part of the rural scene too!

We're both psychologists. Bob is an academic, a longterm professor at University of Southampton; Sue is a clinical prof, with great experience of working in NHS services for mental health, as well as honorary university appointments.

Now we're both semi-retired, but we keep our hand in with some teaching, consultancy and writing work. Although we miss the conference travel - we loved our trips the USA and Australia! - we still get away whenever we can in Europe and further afield.

At home, we love gardening, reading, cooking, and cultural activities. At present, Bob is learning French and Sue is teaching mindfulness.

We're lucky enough to have an annex that's separate from the house that we've listed. This means that if we're not travelling, we can make the house available for long periods, and if necessary decamp to the smaller space.

We've always done home exchanges, so we're used to hosting like-minded people: it gives us great satisfaction to hear from guests how much they have enjoyed their visit to our home.

During your stay

We respect our guests' privacy and will never intrude. Nevertheless, unless we're travelling ourselves, we are always happy to meet, chat, and share our local knowledge if required. Just ask!
