About Diana Richardson

Hi, my name is Diana Richardson. My husband Mike and I purchased this house just over 13 years ago and have lived here very happily. Family and friends have enjoyed many weekends visiting us and the surrounding countryside. We have now moved house due to work responsibilities and thought that it was time to let others enjoy what we have had for the past 13 years.

I have enjoyed making the house suitable for holiday letting although it still has many quirks and the character that we have loved. We hope that people who come here enjoy their stay and feel it is a real 'home from home'.

Diana Richardson purchased this cottage in 2000
