Where you’ll be

Saint Andrews, United Kingdom

We live in a very quiet part of town with no passing traffic at all at night. We are very close to the beautiful East Sands beach and Fife Coastal Path while also walking distance from the centre of the town - the nicest way to walk to the centre is along the beach, past the medieval harbour and through the grounds of the old cathedral.

I am a sewing teacher but am interested in all kinds of hand made textiles. I go to Nepal regularly as we used to live there so have friends to visit and recently I've been travelling and studying Nepalese textiles. I have a partner of 32 years and we have 2 grown up daughters. Bruce is an international consultant working with charities and NGO's in the UK and abroad. We live near the beach in St Andrews with our small dog Tavvy. We are a vegetarian, non-smoking household.
