I am originally from the UK, but have now made Winston-Salem my home where I find all the things I most enjoy: history in Old Salem (which reminds me of an English country village), the arts - great theaters, galleries, UNCSA and Reynolda House; super restaurants and bakeries catering for all tastes (some of my favorites are The Tavern in Old Salem, The West End Cafe and Mozelle's); wonderful trees and flowers and countryside; super friendly people; trips to wineries, state parks, skiing all within a couple of hours, and easy road trips further afield to the coast or other cities and states. I have one son in graduate school in Raleigh, and two delightful rescue dogs (Dachshund cross, and toy poodle). I love the arts, am an avid walker, reader, movie goer, and relish good food! I had a lot of fun completely remodelling and decorating one of my houses in 2016, and thoroughly enjoy being an Airbnb host at both my houses. I have travelled quite widely to a lot of North America, Europe, Africa and Japan and would love to do more when time allows. I am a “hands off” host which may mean that you won’t meet me, but you will feel the warmth of my welcome as soon as you enter either of my homes. Plus I live very close by and can easily be reached by text or phone.
