Awaiting the arrival of our first guests….

2 Jul

We’ve been eagerly anticipating July 2nd for months, as we’ve been promised 3 Italian students for a fortnight stay. Their room’s just been finished this morning as we have reconditioned all the original sash windows in our Victorian town semi. Our team of builders, carpenter, painter, plasterer and bricklayer have been working hard for several months to bring our house up to splendour.

Click on the photos below to zoom in to view the guest accommodation:

Guest bedroom at the front of the house.

4-piece en-suite bathroom.

Our guest suite can sleep a family of 5: bunk beds, single bed and double sofa bed.

We have created a continental weekly menu for the teenagers. We are providing a continental breakfast (cereal, toast, juice, etc.), a packed lunch (sandwich, crisps, fruit and cheese/salami) and a cooked evening meal (with desert). Our kitchen garden’s been producing salad for a couple of months here in Devon and we have a fortnightly delivery from Riverford Organic Farm here in Devon to top us up with local produce. Here are some photos of our produce:

Salad and peas.

Spring onions and garlic.

Broccoli and courgettes.

Raspberries, Tayberries and Blackberries from our garden.

At 8pm, we went to the coach park to greet our students and fellow hosts.
