My husband and I have both retired. During our working lives we lived mostly in cities and for over 30 years called Sydney 'home'. We moved to the country upon retirement and chose Barrington and the Gloucester area because of its character, picturesqueness, the friendliness of the population and all the available amenities. We both enjoy the rural lifestyle, our garden, our dog, our hens and the clean country air. Both Chris and I have traveled extensively. We were both born in UK and between us have lived in UK, Africa, South East Asia and the Pacific Islands. I enjoy travelling, reading, movies, theatre, music, meeting new people, good food and most of all, my family. Chris has similar interests but really enjoys gardening and keeping the property neat and tidy. Chris speaks French reasonably well. We look forward to hosting and getting to know a wide range of Airbnb guests.
