Interazione con gli ospiti
At least one of us (but generally both) will be at home to receive you on arrival, and you are very welcome to a coffee/tea with us! After that, we will not disturb you, but we'll be available if you need anything.....
Brian can cook English breakfasts, and will provide one for you if required for £5. (Please let us know before you arrive). Otherwise in the morning help yourself to fruit juice, tea / coffee, fruit, toast and jam or marmalade. The table will be set for you... There is always soya milk in the fridge, sometimes coconut milk too. (Helen also has Vegemite for fellow lovers of that delight!) We are generally around at breakfast time, depending on how early you / we need to get away.....

PLEASE NOTE - This is the only listing we have on airbnb.
We are a retired couple whose children have flown the nest.
Brian is enjoying his retirement from an Architectural Design Department within a Local Authority. Helen worked with Victim Support County Durham for 13 years.
A few years ago our daughter was married in Pennsylvania. Brian found superb airbnb accommodation in Philadelphia, which gave him the idea of hosting in UK. We've since been guests in Airbnb rooms in Nottingham, Coldstream, Ilkley and Manchester... So we fully appreciate being 'guests' too.
We celebrated our 60th birthdays with a trip to Andalucia, Spain. However Greece is Brian's favourite hot holiday destination while Helen loved Zell Am See in Austria and Iceland. We've had great trips to see friends and family in San Antonio, Texas and Philadelphia USA.
Other places visited include Belarus, Poland, France, Belgium, Cyprus, Crete, Zakynthos, Corfu and in 2016, Mijas, Malaga.
We also love Great British travel.... including Scotland, Wales, Wiltshire, Derbyshire and North Yorkshire...
